    Richard has a very nice house. It's well connected by train or bus (45 and 47). Quiet atmosphere, perfect to study

    What can I say? Well I really really enjoyed my stay here. Richard is a wonderful funny, charming and helpful host. I was new to this area and he helped me to find all the local shops, best places to eat and to socialise. Being close to the heart of Birmingham, public transport is conveniently close to his home. I would highly recommend to stay with Richard and his cute Labrador Poppy :)

    Richard is a fantastic host. The first day he picked me up at the airport and showed me where the supermarket and the most important places were. My main aim was to practice and to improve my English and at Richard's home, I had the opportunity to speak to him almost every day. His dog is lovely and there was no problem with her. On Sundays, his family usually came home to have lunch and Richard always invited me to join them. We also went to watch a Birmingham football game, despite the result, it was great to watch a British game and to see the stadium. To sum up, I absolutely recommend this host, I am sure you will have a fantastic time in Birmingham with him!

    Richard was an amazing host to us during our 5 week stay! His house was clean & tidy and very convenient to reach the bus and train. We had a private bathroom, a cupboard in the kitchen for our food and a space in the freezer. Richard really made us feel like we were at home! I would definitely recommend!!

    P.S Poppy is the BEST dog ever!!

    Richard was very friendly and also offered advice on directions etc. Lovely comfy beds, soft towels and Sky. Beautiful 8m old black labrador puppy to play with to. Would benefit from having a shower in bathroom but other than that we had a lovely stay and would quite happily stay again

    I stayed here as it was a great location for two different events local to Birmingham that I had to attend. I was a bit nervous as it was my first time using home stay but Richard was very friendly and welcoming. The house is lovely and in a quiet location and my room was a good size with the bonus of having my own bathroom right next to it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here to anyone and I would stay again.
