    Len and Sandy are great hosts, they are always welcoming and smiling. They are always ready to help their guests and the discussion with them is pleasant.
    The house is clean and equipped well. Len came to make my chamber when I was going to visit Londre. The service was worthy of a hotel but with additionally a human side.
    My stay of 3 weeks was great and if I should return to London in the future, I would return to Len and Sandy. I recommend strongly this housing.

    Len et Sandy sont des hôtes super et ils sont toujours accueillants et souriants. Ils toujours prêt à aider leurs invités, et la discussion avec eux est plaisante.
    La maison est propre et bien equipée. Len venait faire ma chambre quand j'allais visiter Londres. Le service est digne d'un hôtel mais avec en plus le côte humain.
    Mon séjour de 3 semaines était super et si je devais revenir à Londres dans le futur je viendrais chez Len et Sandy. Je recommande vivement ce logement.

    I was staying with them for 6weeks and spent such a great precious time. Len and Sandy are so friendly and care about us a lot. So I could feel being home. Also they have another rooms, so I had great time with other students staying there.
    This town is so peaceful.
    I really recomend you to stay with them, if you want to experience British style of living with kind, cheerful, and lovely host!!

    Leonard and Sandy was very welcoming upon my arrival and made me feel at ease immediately, and through out my stay with them. Sandy was only too happy to take me to the local supermarket so I was able to continue with my special dietry needs. My overall stay was enjoyable and I was made to feel part of the family.Leonard and Sandy take pride in there home with beautiful funishings that are kept clean and are well looked after but without the fuss that makes you feel anything but relaxed. I would highly recommend a stay in their beautiful home with such a lovely couple who are extremly friendly, outgoing with a great sense of humour.
    Truely a home away from home.

    It was an enjoyable stay! You would definitely feel welcome the first time you enter their home. The house might be closer to the train station than you could possible imagine, which means easy access to Waterloo (Central London). Due to some traffic congestion, I arrived very late in the evening but unsurprisingly the friendly and caring host - Len - was waiting in the middle of the night to greet me with a hot cup of tea. The room is light and has everything you possibly need for a comfortable stay. I also enjoyed having dinner with Len in the back garden where he offered me a free dish of British food. Len also woke up in the middle of the night (again) for seeing me away as I had an early flight on the date. A pleasurable stay overall!!!

    Have had a lovely stay with Len and Sandy. The house is clean and tidy and big enough that everyone feels that they have space. Len and Sandy are great hosts. Up for a chat when we are but give us lots of space and never crowd us. The facilities are brilliant and there are shops, bars and restaurants nearby and its great to be by the train station and to be at Waterloo in half an hour! Its perfect for what we have needed it for so we have decided to book another week!
