”And thus we take leave of Putney, one of the pleasantest of the London suburbs, as well as the most accessible. The immense increase in the number of houses in late years testifies to its popularity; but there is still an almost unlimited extent of open ground which can not be covered; and with wood and water, common and hill, there will always be an element of freshness and openness in Putney seldom to be obtained so near London.’’ J C Geikie, The Fascinations of London, 1903.
“The Lodge Putney is a real find. A lovely boutique hotel in a great position close to East Putney tube station.”
“Perfect base. Just had a few nights in London and didn’t fancy staying central, and by chance came across this hotel. It was easy to find and had free parking. Very clean and nicely decorated. Would certainly come back in the future. Thanks for a great stay.”
