Reviews of this property
The room is very clean , but the information are not the same that are writen here, because you can't have shower in morning , and here is writen that is before at 11 pm also at 10 in the morning you have to go outside to leave the house and this is not writen , if you are thinking to go out during nighy is not a good place at first to come back with a bus it needs hours and you have to wake up early and also nobody cares that you are sleeping but are making in the way to wake you up ,
that was at all nice at for me was at all a good stay because it is not nice at all to say to the person that are paying for the stay and are respectfull to your rules that you change rules how you like .
If you want to make money and rent your room and you don't want people at home ( and i was using only my room , not other spaces )i think is not the way at all.
Also is more than a week and the description is still not changed .
Paula was an excellent hostess. She explained all the things that we needed when we arrived. Moreover she was really kind because she gave us extra information about the city, public transport and interesting places to visit. The room and the toilet were very clean and tidy and the breakfast that she offers is perfect for starting the day with energy. The house is really lovely and it has a lovely decoration. I would like to recommend this nice, peaceful and clean place for a future guests, and if I ever go again to London I know a beautiful place to stay! =)
I was very welcomed by Paula and her husband, David, it was a lovely home and I would definately stay there again.
My stay at Paula was very nice. She and her husband were really nice and helpful. It was all very clean. Any time. Many Thanks.
Mein Aufenthalt bei Paula war sehr schön. Sie und ihr Mann waren wirklich sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Es war alles sehr sauber . Jeder Zeit wieder. Vielen Dank.
Paula was a lovely host with a loving and responsible family. I had a good stay and felt quite safe in the house. The room is as advertised, clean and functional. Highly recommended.
I stayed with David and Paula for 2 weeks and must admit I've rarely met such relaxed, kind and forthcoming hosts. It felt more like some sort of home instead of a b&b - If you wanted to chat, there was time for that - and if you wanted to be on your own, that was respected as well. While I was there, 2 young Southamericans arrived and it was absolutely thouching to see how much they helped them since they knew little about Europe. Being familiar with London I managed on my own - but did I have doubts about anything they were there.
More hosts like them! :-)
I felt very comfortable at Paula´s home. The room was nice and clean with view to the garden. It´s very near to the train station and in 20 minutes I was in the city center. There are often other guests as well but everyone was friendly and considerate. Paula is a great host and I can absolutely recommend to stay at hers.
