Harrods Bank Limited

87 - 135 Brompton Rd, Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7XL, UK – 020 7225 6789

Its now made it so much easier for African Dictators to pick up their favourite item to spend corruption money on! Gold bars are so discreet, easily converted into any currency in the world, and best of all is now available to purchase over the counter without any ID checks and paid for by hard cash. So while the missus is shopping for her Gucci bag upstairs, the hubby is downstairs loading up on these...

Lovely time with the staff always feel welcome.

The Chelsea Building Co

168 Earls Ct Rd, Kensington, London SW5 9QQ, UK – 020 7259 2247

Have used this company several times and can highly recommend. David and his team were a delight to have around! Mess was kept to a minimum, turned up on time and didn’t land me with extra hidden costs. They even didn’t seem to mind too much when I changed my mind numerous times on things and were very accommodating. Would definitely use them again.

I used Chelsea Building because they were competitive and professional pitching for the business and I was not disapointed.They completed painting the outside of the house and remedial building work on time and to a very high specification.Their workfroce were a pleasure to have on site and they always left the site clean.I would definitely ask them to pitch again for any further building and/or decorating work that I have going forward

Nationwide

146 Uxbridge Rd, Shepherd's Bush, London W12 8AT, UK – 0800 554 0296

I've moved from this branch. Although conveniently located on the north side of Shepherds Bush Green it has an annoying double entry door that doesn't always work very efficiently and it is easy to collide with people even though you're not supposed to be able to. Watch out if you're struggling with a wet umbrella. Why do these places hardly ever have a bucket to deposit them in. Can get super busy in here with a queue that never seems to move. You can also wait a long time to speak to an advisor.

Great customer service. Very friendly staff. Barely any queuing

Local Chambers of Commerce for W2 1UH. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Dental Surgeries

Paddington Dental Practice

17 Craven Rd, London W2 3BP, UK – 020 7723 6106

Great dental practice and would highly recommend. Due to a past traumatic tooth extraction experience in my young teens, it had really put me off going to the dentist and became a very nervous patient. Work colleague recommended Yasmin Golar as a really good dentist - she was superb! Definitely made me feel at ease and took the time out to explain the treatments, and calmed my nerves. I will be scheduling my next general dental check up with her.

I have long term health problems and suffer with anxiety, but Andy, the dentist makes my appointments a more comfortable experience. I can not fault his treatment of me in the least, but my review focuses on the reception staff. Unfortunately, because of my poor health I had to cancel my appointment in excess of four hours of advance notice. I would not have tolerated the treatment at that time due to a virus. But the receptionist was extremely condescending and rude when "telling me off" for cancelling "last minute" and that I could be taken off their client list. I informed them at the earliest opportunity considering there was no answer when I rang earlier! I found this extremely distressing at a time when I was feeling very poorly. Unfortunately I am undergoing a treatment that requires me to finish attendance but following that I will be looking for a new dentist. This is no way to treat patients.

Kings Dental Clinic (Hammersmith, Olympia)

36 North End Rd, Hammersmith, London W14 0SH, UK – 020 7603 5211

I visited the clinic on 31/05/2017 for a filling. And being the person I am with fear of pain of any form, I never imagined for the whole experience to finish off the way it did! Everything went very smoothly with (I must insist here) no pain whatsoever! It was a five star treatment beyond comprehension including my best expectations and for that I very gratefully salute the entire team. Very well done indeed.

At kings dental they have the best and the most honest and professional dentists in town. Even though I was asked to either pay a fine for missing an appointment that was booked in error for me instead of my wife or i will be removed from there list of patiants.I have to mention this that if you are lucky enough to have Dr Hayder Barazan as your dentist do not miss his appointments as Dr Haider is one of the most honest, unmaterialistic, genuinely nice person, and on top of all master in dentistry. I highly recommend Dr H Barazan . And I would love it if they reconsider signing me back on. 😊😊

Oasis Dental Care Belgravia

2 Eccleston St, Belgravia, London SW1W 9LN, UK – 020 7730 4948

Last night I had my first ever Root Canal Treatment. Dr David Wilmot was absolutely amazing. My biggest fear was that I'd feel something but I did not feel a thing!!! Anyway, I've woken up this morning and I don't need any painkillers, I can eat and drink hot and cold food again, and I can bite again. I am very grateful to David for getting me out of pain painlessly, and to Ewa for making me feel at ease when I was scared. Thank you :)

Such a great team and Dr Cuddy is really caring. Makes going to the dentist almost like an appointment at the hairdresser

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

1906A, Portland House, Bressenden Pl, Westminster, London SW1E 5RS, UK – 020 8712 9378

This is an exceptional service for people with a busy schedule or limited time in London. I am an expat and need support in managing my diabetes. The LDC has provided a fast turn around on test results, follow-up advice and issue of prescriptions, at very reasonable prices.

I got an appointment 40 minutes after my phone call. Dr Rita Salvador was very thorough & efficient. An easy central location. I was very pleased with the service from LDG. Highly recommended.

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

11.10, 20 Eastbourne Terrace, London W2 6LG, UK – 020 8712 9378

A U. S. tourist staying in a hotel near Paddington--shortly after 8 a.m. on a Friday I found the clinic online, and I was able to book an appointment for 9:30 A.M. that day. The clinic is inside a high-rise building near the train station. Once inside and after circumnavigating the elevators, the receptionist and doctor were very friendly and waiting for me in a pristine clean area. I received good professional treatment, and was in and out with my much-needed antibiotic in less than 20 minutes: 55 pounds for the 15-minute appointment, plus 10 pounds for filling the prescription for me 'on the spot.' I was certainly pleased with the rapid response and good care that I received.

I got an appointment the same morning that I registered and the website was easy to navigate. The clinic was easy to find close to the tube station, and reception staff helpful. More to the point, the doctor was professional, but friendly, with the medicine prescribed for me available on the spot. If, as was the case my GP could not book me an appointment for 3 weeks, I would definitely use this clinic again.

The Bush Doctors

147 Shepherd's Bush Green, London W12 8PP, UK – 020 8749 1882

Great surgery, amazing staff. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Dr Pamini is always thorough.

Well, the receptionists are not quite friendly and a bit miserable (i work at a reception so i know), i can only count 1 who is really lovely. First time there, i had to wait 1h after my appointment time to be seen, i know there is always a waiting time but i've never had to wait that long. The doctor did her job, however rushed me because she was running late and i understand it happens but i told her i have the right to get an appropriate appointment and not be rushed. 2nd time there it was just for a blood test and i also had to wait 40-50min which is surprising since taking blood doesn't take that long. I'm only going there because it's close by but not sure if i can recommend it. I'll book another appointment with another doctor and see how it goes. If you don't want to wait i'll recommend booking early morning appointments.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

University College Hospital at Westmoreland Street

16-18 Westmoreland St, Marylebone, London W1G 8PH, UK – 020 3456 7898

Probably one of the best. Considering it’s NHS you could mistake it for being private. Some of the best consultants here, up to date with the very latest technology, some amazing stuff they do here. My only criticism would be after procedures in the ward, there are very few staff compared to a general hospital, buts that’s down to government cut backs. Appointments get changed a lot, this again I would say to lack of staff. Staff are very friendly, not found them to be unfriendly as some have suggested, and I have been coming here for around 3 years on regular visits. Keep up the good work😊👍

Staff seem very more focused on getting the paperwork done rather than taking taking a moment to acknowledge people. Very target driven particularly in comparison to some other London hospitals that I have been to. A little customer service related training would go a long way! The food in the canteen was... (I’ll put it down to Hospital aliment) not worth the money. Parking is limited and dang expensive (street parking only) rather commute if you are able to.

The Wellington Hospital, South

Wellington Hospital South Bldg, 8A Wellington Pl, London NW8 9LE, UK – 020 7586 5959

My mother in law was submitted to this hospital for heart x-ray first impression was great from start to finish and handover from staff to staff was great. she didn't understand a world of English so had translate and doctor come and explained the procedure in detail before she went in. food is great parking hard to find. staff friendly and very clean all rooms have own tv and the 2 nurses never left our site and aftercare for 2hours was great. Eni

Let some people blame.... I don't care... I still love it...

Nightingale Hospital

11, 19 Lisson Grove, Marylebone, London NW1 6SH, UK – 020 7535 7700

My consultant was accurate and understanding and staff were like angels never had nursing like it since I was a nurse in the 80's such a difference from the other well known provider for mental health that made me so very very ill over 2 years. Just 2 weeks in the nightingale and I am finally starting to live a little more. One negative I fractured my ankle due to falling using plug sockets behind a desk. As we can all be unsteady on meds would suggest asking nurse to help, nothing is too much for them, wish I had, then I wouldn't be in this huge boot! All in all if you are mentally unwell don't mess around with the others go to the nightingale and get well!

Was there recently, enjoyed the beautiful architecture and was fascinated with the whole history of the place and it's connection to Abingdon in Oxfordshire. Worth a read.

I've been looking closely at disposing of our redundant hardware-faulty kit and needed to comply with WEEE regulations. IT-Green were able to help me with registering as a producer and issued the Hazardous documents when their driver turned up. Didn't turn up in the morning as stated though, but certainly were professional.

Very good service, price acceptable.

We were very pleased with the Clearance Solutions service. We needed a 3-bed flat completely cleared at fairly short notice - they came to give a quote at the time promised, and later came to do the job exactly as organized. The work-crew were friendly, efficient and helpful. All was done quicker than we expected, with no problems. If you want a job done well with a short lead-time, these guys deliver!

Rasa Restaurant

6 Dering St, Mayfair, London W1S 1AD, UK – 020 7629 1346

Gorgeous food, lovely location. They make the amazing mango curry better than any other place in London. Must try the coconut rice, is divine!

Very tasty and well priced. Excellent Keralan style Indian food.

Kazan Restaurant

93-94 Wilton Rd, Pimlico, London SW1V 1DW, UK – 020 7233 7100

Celebrated my dad's birthday here on a Sunday evening. It wasn't very crowded then but we had pre-booked a table. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Service was efficient and the food was excellent! They even cheerfully took pics for us and brought out the cake singing for him. We didn't feel rushed at all and thanks to the staff really enjoyed our evening.

The perfect start to a weekend eating in London. This friendly buzzing Middle Eastern restaurant is a meat eaters paradise. All the dishes are freshly prepared. The flavours are fresh and the meats are very tender. Kazan is probably not the ideal place for a quiet romantic meal. A delightful restaurant with a wonderful ambience & fabulous food.. Service was exceptional & we could not fault the entire evening. Many thanks to all the staff & likewise the owners who got it just right.

Nursery and Preschools

Minors Nursery School

10 Pembridge Square, London W2 4ED, UK – 020 7727 7253

The girl I look after has attended Minors Nursery School since September 2017 and she loves it. Everyday she is happy to go to school and I can see how comfortable she is with the Minors team. The teachers are very reliable, caring and professional. Often she comes home with her little arts and craft, which are nice and creative. The atmosphere with other parents and nannies is very friendly, too. Would definitely recommend this nursery school, it is fabulous.

A wonderful and caring nursery, my daughter loves it here. The teachers are very kind and always smiling : )

Holland Park Pre Prep School

5 Holland Rd, Kensington, London W14 8HJ, UK – 020 7602 9066

The Staff at Holland Pre Prep School is absolutely amazing. They have been very accommodating to our needs, as we joined the school mid term. Our two sons absolutely love the school and their teachers. They are excited to go to school in the morning, which says so much about their experience, and they can't stop talking about it when they are home. Coming from the US, we knew our kids would have a hard time adapting to a new school, however, the staff at HPPPS has been wonderful in helping us all. The atmosphere is sweet and charming, but the school offers a full range of academic accomplishments. I would highly recommend this jewel to anyone looking for a charming and sweet place for their children.

As an ecuadorian coming to London with my two little girls, HPPS have been a little piece of heaven for me, a home Away from home. The staff has always been so cooperative, understanding and friendly to us. My daughter has always been happy going to school every morning with the amazing minibus service (a life saver for me!). The environment is friendly, warm and nurturing. It has been a relief for my husband and I knowing our little one is in such good hands. Moreover, she has grown and learned so much during this year. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone living in the area. Oh! By the way, food is amazing! Prepared by their own chef daily, fresh and healthy. Arianna enjoys it so much!

St James Junior School

Earsby St, London W14 8SH, UK – 020 7348 1777

My son is attending St James and he is enjoying to go to school. It is very welcoming school. Small classes, well behaved children, but still with freedom to be children. Teachers are skilled and supportive. Children are engaged to participate to school's activities from very beginning. By the end of the first semester your boy or girl will happily recite Shakespear's poems and sing on Latin and Sanskrit (completely willingly with smile and happiness). Parents are friendly. Competitive credo is swapped for learning and understanding. As a parent of child who is attending St James I can't say nothing but best for this school so far. He was shy boy and now he is growing into an confident, kind, very well educated and behaved young man. Regarding things from the past, I don't know how someone can judge the school nowadays on its past... (new milenium schools and parents are different and generally schools in the past weren't some pleasant places)

I had the pleasure of running an assembly at the school and found the staff and children to be super friendly and positive. My subsequent dealings with the school have also been terrific. It's a school with a great, positive vibe!
