We stayed with this host in May and we absolutely loved it.  The host is a wonderful and caring and a font of information.  Vauxhall is a great area to stay, quite a number of restaurants and very convenient transportation option.  We look forward to stay with her again next time we are in London.   Cindy, USA.

Thanks so much for your lovely hospitality. It was an oasis in the heart of the biggest city I know of.  Your home is beautiful and you are a dear. Marlene, Canada, May 2016

J is a wonderful host, very warm and welcoming, always ready to give advice and information. Her house is lovely and very clean, both the bathroom and the bedroom have many details and the breakfast is excellent. I’m very happy that I have met her and stayed there. I’ll certainly visit her again!  Carmen, Spain, October 2015

Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprecie le confort de la chambre et de la salle de bain, ainsi que les delicieux petits dejeuners.  Nous reviendrons certainement…et conseillerons votre maison a nos amis.  Jean & Joelle, France, June 2015

Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed my stay at JR’s home in London.  It was all I could have hoped for and more!  J has a lovely house, and is a superior hostess!!  I feel very lucky to have experienced London for the first time at so charming a home base.  Nena, USA, May 2015

Great hostess and a mine of very useful information, which made our stay in London very enjoyable.  Julie, UK, April 2015 

Words do not express adequately how we feel about the welcome we received and that, with all your kindness and help throughout our short stay, we think that your B&B beats all the others we have experienced into a cocked hat. Nothing was too much trouble. Her home was comfortable, very clean and in a good situation for accessing London’s varied facilities. We would certainly visit her again and have already recommended her B&B to friends. Tony & Karen, UK, June 2014 

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my stay with Janine in London last week. She was a wonderful host and she made me feel right at home and very welcomed! She went above and beyond in ensuring that I was able to get myself around the city. Her breakfasts were great and it was so lovely to be greeted at the end of a busy day with a warm welcome and a glass of wine! I will definitely recommend her B & B and your agency to my friends! Thanks so very much. J.D, Canada

I was extremely happy with the lodging I booked through At Home in London in Vauxhall. The location was superb, with a local bus stop practically right outside the front door and two tube stops well within walking distance. J was a very attentive hostess, and I am grateful to her for sharing her cats with me during my stay! I miss waking up to seeing Peaches close by. J fixed a splendid breakfast and I greatly enjoyed the wine we shared in the evenings after having spent all day out sightseeing (and the awesome biscuits she kept on hand!). The guest bathroom made me feel I was in a spa, and I thoroughly enjoyed soaking in the big tub! I loved the fact that I felt like I was staying in London with a friend instead of a sterile hotel room. Linda, USA

I am writing to let you know that I had the most wonderful stay at the home of Janine . She is a very warm and welcoming person and her home is very charming. I felt completely at home at her place. She was continually able to advise me about which Tube stops and bus stops I needed to get off at when sightseeing in London. And a bus stop is only seconds from her door which puts all of London at your fingertips. I am very happy to have been able to stay with Janine. It made my trip to London very special. Michelle, Canada

I just arrived back in Sydney last week after my month away, and wanted to thank you again for your wonderful hospitality when I stayed with you in June. After my unfortunate London B&B experience the previous year, it renewed my faith in B&B hospitality! You really are a wonderful hostess and make your guests feel very welcome. Janis, Australia

My stay with J in her delightful home could not have been more perfect. She is a wonderful, fun host and her home is welcoming and meets every need. Comfort, cleanliness, and welcome, warm hospitality. Lovely room, delightful en-suite private bathroom, coupled with superb 10 star breakfasts. Her home is situated so close to bus stops, with easy access to Vauxhall and from there the rest of the City is easily accessible by foot, bus, train or tube. I cannot recommend J’s efforts highly enough and can’t wait for my next visit. I’m going away leaving behind me a ‘forever friend’. Thank you for introducing us. I came to London needing a complete break and I am going away feeling totally rested and rejuvenated. This little B & B is a jewel in the beautiful “crown” of London – treasure it! Jenny, UK
