I spent the month of July with Angie and it was great! My room was very cozy, I had everything I needed, and whenever I needed help Angie was always willing to help. Talking about food, I could have whatever I wanted for breakfast, and her cuisine was delicious too! Also, Kings Health is very well located, as you only have to take one bus to the city centre and it is a 24h bus, so there is no problem coming back no matter the time.
One of the things I enjoyed the most was having a cup of tea with her and her daugther while watching TV.
They are very nice people and I had a lovely time at their home.
I had a wonderful stay with Angie's family. She is a very likeable and nice person to live with. I enjoyed my stay in her house. We had joy and fun, and it was an enjoyable experience in Birmingham. She helped me with my speaking English and we share many stories together. It's for my not just a homestay but a lovely family during my time in Birmingham. I appreciate that very much and I will recommend her house with no hesitation. I will definitely come back to her house next time in Birmingham.
It was a pleasure for me to have this experience with this family. Angela is an excellent woman who helped me all the time although my English wasn't very good. She is a great cook, friendly and very funny with all the people.
Her house is very clean, warm and comfortable. The area has excellent parks, a lot of shops and is very near to the city centre.
Any way it is a great opportunity and very recommendable.
Assolutamente da consigliare. E' una buona soluzione se si decide di venire a Birmingham per pochi giorni. Per andarè in centro o alla stazione c'è un comodo bus a 5 minuti a piedi dalla casa. L'alloggio è confortevole e la Sigra Angela molto ospitale ed amichevole.
Had a lovely stay with Angela in her family home. She was very welcoming and friendly. I would stay there again when I'm in Birmingham next.
It is a pleasure for me to recommend Angela´s home. Very good experience. I recommend to everyone. Angela is lovely, her house is beautiful very confortable and clean.
La familia Foster es encantadora. Ángela es una anfitriona extraordinaria. Todo ha sido muy fácil. Ella y su familia te hacen sentir como en casa. Su hogar es muy acogedor, la comida muy buena, son cariñosos y amables. La ubicación de esta familia es ideal: cerca del centro de Birmingham en autobús, con varios parques para pasear, un barrio muy tranquilo. En fin, un alojamiento muy recomendable.
