The Experience

Temple Lodge, once home to the painter Sir Frank Brangwyn, is sandwiched between a courtyard and a lushly landscaped garden. The peace is remarkable making it a very restful place – simple yet human and warmly comfortable, a nourishing experience. Michael and his devoted team run it with quiet energy. You breakfast overlooking the garden, there are newspapers to browse, a library instead of TVs. Bedrooms are surprisingly stylish: pretty art, crisp linen, no clutter, a hint of country chic. They’re exceptional value for money, too, so book well in advance. Some rooms have garden views, only a couple have their own bathrooms and loo; if you don’t mind that, you’ll be happy. The Thames passes by at the end of the road, the Riverside Studios is round the corner for theatre and film, and the Gate Vegetarian Restaurant is across the courtyard, a well-known eatery, its food so good even committed carnivores can’t resist. It was also Brangwyn’s studio, hence the artist’s window. The house is a non-denominational Christian centre with two services a week, which you may take or leave as you choose.

I love this place. It is attractive, welcoming, peaceful, wonderful value and delightfully modest - even old-fashioned. Some of the rooms are as elegant as one could wish for; others are more functional but still good value. The new garden rooms are well designed and built. But above all I like the fact that one's money supports the pursuit of reflection, peace and love in our despairing society. Lastly, the chapel is a haven of silence, and the Gate restaurant one of London's finest. Special indeed, for many reasons.

I had a lovely stay at the Temple Lodge Club. My room was small and cosy an had everything I needed. Very comfortable bed and duvet had me sleeping like a log. The shared bathroom was just down the hall. The Temple Lodge Club is an oasis of calm in the middle of bustling Hammersmith. The garden is a lovely place to relax. A good,healthy breakfast is served every morning. Lovely, friendly and very helpful staff. I shall return!

My favorite place to stay in London, very welcoming, peaceful and beautiful! Nice rooms overlooking a lovely garden, and excellent breakfast. Thank you for your friendly welcome always!


The ideal London retreat - convenient, quiet, friendly, homely rooms with clean shared bathrooms (some en suite I believe), good simple organic breakfast overlooking the beautiful walled garden. Great value. River walks & great food options nearby (NB the excellent vegetarian restaurant in the front garden! Also The Dove for great fish & chips overlooking the river). I will return often.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Alicja Fediow & Peter Van Breda

  • You’re so close to Hammersmith Bridge with very good pubs on the banks of the Thames for a pint; watch the rowing clubs prepare to power along the river; and even visit William Morris' House if you choose the right day.
  • There’s a lovely loop along the Thames, up to Putney Bridge one side, part of the Thames Path - then back the other,it takes about an hour and a half, though the odd pub may delay you.
  • On the far side of the Thames - the Surrey side in boat-race speak - you’ll find the marvellous Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust - bird watching in the city when you hardly realize your in it!
  • Around the corner - literally - you’ll find the Riverside Studios, one of London’s artistic hubs, brilliant for film retrospectives, theatre and exhibitions, even the odd musical. You don’t need to be a member, just spin round and see what’s on.
  • A five-minute stroll along the river will take you the famous River Café. OK, it’s probably going to set you back about £65 each, but it’s a great little place and worth a splash out on big occasions.
