Our Reviews

  •   We were looking for somewhere to stay to attend a friends garden party. Hotels nearby were expensive and would also require a taxi. Then looking at Google maps, Owlets B&B appeared within walking distance of our friends place. A lovely couple running it, comfortable beds, a great bathroom and a lovely breakfast the following morning. And at a great price too. A hidden gem in south London! More

  •   This is a little gem!! A beautiful house set in a very quiet area, just what I needed. On arrival I was greeted by the owners, who were lovely people, and shown to my room. After I had settled I decided to go for a walk to get a few nibbles etc. for my stay. The owner was very helpful with instructions. There is a Sainsburys and several eateries all with 10-15 minutes walk. South Croydon is also only 15 minutes on the train to London, so very convenient if you'd like to site-see or are on a business trip.
    The room (including the bed) was very comfortable and clean with everything I needed for an enjoyable stay and more. If you're worried about the shared bathroom, don't be. It was brand new, very plush and extremely clean. As someone who is quite OCD at times (or so my Husband would have you believe), I was more than happy here.
    Breakfast was at the family kitchen table looking over the garden and was equally as lovely as the rest of my stay. I was asked the night before what I’d like, cereal, full English, toast, just name it I could have it. I opted for poached eggs on toast, a real treat and it was served with tea/coffee and fruit juice. Most enjoyable.
    This little hidden B&B is extremely good value for money. I shall be returning in the future.
    Thank you!
    Tip: Book direct, as they only advertise one room on Expedia and the rates are the same.

  •   Owlets Bed and Breakfast is a lovely place to stay near Croydon. My family and I stayed for a week as we were close to relatives who lived in the area but were unable to host us.


    Great amenities. Clean room, comfy beds, lovely bathroom (extremely modern and recently redone with a nice walk -in shower). Our room also had a fridge, tea, coffee and a kettle for us.

    Hosts and owners Janet and Angus were nice and hospitable throughout our stay. Every morning my dad, sister, and I were greeted with a big breakfast of our choosing (usually we went with a FULL English breakfast).

    In terms of location, Owlets is near Sanderstead, Purley, and Croydon. You are able to access trains into the city, but you need to take a bus to the train station because the walk is a little far.

    In summary, if you're looking for a classic bed and breakfast experience in the greater London area, Owlets is an excellent choice. Great hosts, nice place, while not walking distance to the trains, easy access to public transit.

    Thanks again for hosting Janet and Angus! More

  •   Arrived at 11am with a warm welcome to check in before heading off to the wedding ceremony. Janet and Angus are lovely hosts and provide a clean and comfortable place to stay. The shower is amazing and now my fiancée is wanting one in our home. Cooked breakfast was delicious and set us up for the journey back home. Highly recommend and will probably come back when we plan to go to London for a visit. Thank you again for our lovely stay in Croydon.

  •   A great little family run bnb. The hosts are friendly and took care of all my needs. Bedrooms are light and airy. A handy fridge and microwave in the room makes staying for a few days easy. The breakfast is superb. Easy walk to shops, transport and restaurants. Very good value.

  •   I had a wonderful stay at Owlets and the hosts were absolutely wonderful. Comfortable bedroom in a quiet area and delicious breakfast. A walk to the shops and not far from the bus stop. I will definitely stay there again.

  •   We stayed here after visiting Hampton court flower show. We did not want to stay near the show as we wanted somewhere quiet. Owlets fitted the bill nicely. Lovely room, bathroom and breakfast all excellent. I can highly recommend More

  •   I arrived mid afternoon having travelled from Leeds by train I was immediately impressed by Owlets it was all that I expected and more. Janet and Angus were very kind and Janet showed me my room which was both clean and comfortable the bathroom was top quality especially the shower which was a real experience. Angus cooked me a superb full English breakfast that kept me going until well past lunchtime.
    Both Janet and Angus were very easy to talk too and I really enjoyed my visit I would certainly recommend Owlets to anyone who is staying in the area.Although I did not travel very far myself it is very convenient for connections to Croydon and central London and I will certainly return to the Owlets should the need arise.
    Thank you for making my visit such a good experience. More
