Our Reviews

  •   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

  •   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

  •   I've stayed a few times with Janet and Angus, and each time have been welcomed like I was one of the family.
    The rooms are clean and very comfortable, and the bathroom has an excellent shower!
    Can't recommend highly enough.

  •   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.

  •   What can I say? This is the best bed and breakfast place we have ever stayed in. Both Janet and Angus, are truly charming and welcoming hosts. I stayed with my family at the property in July for the weekend, as we were attending a wedding nearby. We had family also with us visiting from Canada. There is nothing Janet and Angus would not do for us. The bedrooms are beautifully maintained, and everything you could possibly need in the. The bathroom was lovely and we loved the very modern shower. It had a spa touch to it. The Garden is so beautiful , and very peaceful to relax. The breakfast was so yummy, and there is plenty of choice from poached eggs to an excellent full cooked English breakfast. We had so much fun staying here and having wonderful hosts taking care of us was the icing on the cake. I would recommend anyone to stay in this truly unique, tranquil and amazing bed and breakfast - you really will feel at home. Thank you so much Janet and Angus , a lovely couple. We will no doubt come again. God bless you both.

  •   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.
