Just to let you know that my sister and I had a lovely visit to London last week. Eileen is a very kind hostess who gave us a lovely breakfast, including organic eggs. There was not a lot of choice but had we wanted anything different we only had to ask. The room was spacious and very quiet and sharing a bathroom was not a problem. David, France

The location of the property in a leafy quiet square is so close to the Underground and on the evening of our arrival we ate in a pleasant restaurant, one of a number which Eileen recommended, just around the corner. Caroline, UK

I just wanted to tell you that we very much enjoyed our stay in this home. Everything was very clean. We liked the English breakfast and the morning conversation with our host. And the room is lovely, very well furnished with very comfortable beds. Eva, Germany

Spent 3 nights in this homely house. The room was just perfect, everything very clean and neat. The room where the breakfast is served is wonderful and the host is very nice, kind and discreet. Great location, very close to everything. Cristina, Italy

I stayed at EM’s home in Cornwall Gardens, South Kensington. I would just like to say I felt very spoilt. She is a great host and made me very welcome. I felt very safe and since I was travelling on my own this was important. The best breakfasts made to order I would recommend to anyone and will I hope get to stay again on my next trip. Thanking you. JB, Victoria, Australia

My staying in London was great. The apartment is really beautiful and EM is an exquisite woman, extremely kind. I couldn’t ask for a better location. Thanks a lot for your help and be sure that I’ll suggest your web-site to other people. Giuliana, Italy
