First of all, I am very glad that I choose to stay at Maurice house. Maurice is nice and respectful and ready to help you if you need something. How long I stayed there I felt like I am at my home, I had the impression that I am part of the family “.☺️When I decide to stay in his home he offers to give me a lift from the train station and once again I am grateful for that, thanks to Maurice and we will see soon. I recommend it!
Maurice is a great host, very friendly and helpful.
He's easy to talk to and always in a good mood.
The house is very clean and tidy and in a quiet neighborhood with good public transport.
I recommend staying with him if you're looking for a place to stay in the area.
Thanks for your hospitality Maurice.
Maurice was a fabulous host. He was welcoming and very helpful with information and a great conversationalist. He made me and my daughter feel right at home. His home is clean and warm with a lovely little shopping village close by. Buses take you directly into Edinburgh. We really enjoyed our stay with Maurice.
Very kind and understanding person and he is very welcoming. I would have no hesitation in recommending Maurice to anyone and would stay here again 100%
My stay with Maurice in his house has been a really pleasant experience. I stayed for a total of 4 nights, and spent a lot of time studying, in which his house has a perfect atmosphere as it is very quiet and calm. Maurice is a good host and he has a lot of interesting stories to tell about the UK and Edinburgh. Finally, I think that it is a very good price that you pay to stay in a room that is in the quality that Maurice offers. Would definitely recommend a stay with Maurice in his homestay!
I have spent a great time at Maurice's house for sure.
I have lived a very good Scottish experience thanks to him.
Maurice is a great man, he is a "Chef".
I really enjoyed his company and also his family, his neighbors and all the people I met during these six weeks.
I would never have thought of living an experience like this and having a host as good as Maurice.
Everything was perfect, the accommodation was pleasant, welcoming, warmy exactly like its host.
I strongly recommend all travelers to come meet Maurice.
It will be difficult for you to go home after this experience, trust me !
I would like to thank you, Maurice, for everything.
I will not forget you, and we will see eachother as soon as possible !
(Special note for Anderson's family : I would like to see Ulla(la)pool and come to visit bully bully people :D) xoxo
J'ai passé un excellent séjour chez Maurice.
J'ai réellement vécu une très bonne expérience à l'écossaise.
Maurice est un homme formidable, c'est un excellent cuisinier.
J'ai réellement apprécié sa compagnie ainsi que celle de ses proches, de ses voisins et de l'ensemble des personnes que j'ai rencontré durant ces six semaines.
Je n'aurai jamais pensé vivre une expérience comme celle-ci et tomber sur un hôte tel que Maurice.
Tout était parfait, le logement agréable, accueillant, chaleureux à l'image de son hôte.
Je conseille fortement à l'ensemble des voyageurs de venir rencontrer Maurice.
Croyez moi, il vous sera difficile de rentrer chez vous après cette rencontre.
Maurice was a great host. I enjoyed staying thoroughly. Thank you very much for the hospitality.
He was okay.
He invited me Sunday roast
However, he said to me he will provide me all the meals, but he provided me only some day.
He promised me he will teach me English but he said ”search on Google”.
I wasted time and money.
I don't know why he could promise me to teach English.
Le lieu est très calme et agréable. Il y a du confort dans la maison.
j'ai beaucoup apprécié mon séjour et j'y resterai jusqu'à la fin de l'année.
L'hote est accueillant et serviable.
Me and my friend Yaser stayed with Maurice and we enjoyed being with his company and we had nice and fun time together, Mauricie is very kind person and they many good things to say about him
The house was very cleaned and nice and big and he has 2 nice garden, the food was very delicious and nice
I recommend everyone coming to Edinbrah to stay with Maurice and his area is nice as well
We are absolutely coming again and again and again
