Staying with Nev was an unforgetable experience. He is one of the kindest and nicest person I have ever met in my life. He is willing to help you with anything you need during your stay. His house is a beautiful place to stay in a stunning village Saltaire and the village was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. I felt very comfortable and welcoming. Their house was my house too for a while where I could feel at home. Nev and Bella were extremely friendly. We had great evenings together, preparing dinner and playing games together. I truly enjoyed visiting other places with them during my stay there. The warm gesture was picking me up at the airport at the beginning of my stay and also lifting me up to the airport at the end of my stay.
This is one experience which will remain etched in my mind forever. Thank you for everything and hope to see you soon. Highly recommended. If you choose to stay with Nev, you won't regret.
Nev and Bella are very nice persons.
They tought me anything I didn't know clearly. We together went very beautiful places of Yorkshire.
Especially, Nev's dishes were awesome.
I had wonderful experience.
I strongly recommend Nev's house to homestay.
See you next time!!!
Nev is so friendly and makes me comfortable. I definitely want to stay again.
The cost was worth every penny, didn’t regret anything at all, definitely will recommend it to anyone who is thinking about leeds
A wonderful experience in a very nice place! The house is located in the old Saltaire Village, close to many supermarkets and parks. 2 train stations are reachable in ten minutes' walking.
The host is so kind and always helpful. Furthermore, he's a very talented chef: he can cook dishes of every culture. The house is clean, comfortable and well organized.
Amazing host!!! He helped me a lot during my stay in Leeds, he's kind, he always takes care of everyone and he's always reachable in case you need him. I had a great time with him and he helped me to improve my English daily, correcting my mistakes and suggesting better ways of expressing things. It's been a complete joy to stay in his house.
The house is really nice decorated and it's always clean. My room had everything I needed to study and relax at the same time. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!
I lived 4 months with Nev and it was a wondefull exprience, everything were perfects, food, activities, accomodation etc... Nev is here for you if you have a problem, he give a real experience in a native english house ! The house is close to the train (4 minutes) and to Leeds (20 minutes). No hesitation choose Nev's house.
Thank you Nev for your hospitality and great experience. Hope to see you next time.
Nev gave me a warm welcome. I got nice tips to find sights and places of interest. He was very helpful and we had interesting conversations. Staying in your homestay was really nice with always a good ambiance. I can highly recommend Nev to other guests. Thankyou for the great time and I'll meet you again!
