I stayed for just over three months and had a fabulous time. The house is warm, welcoming and friendly, and the other housemates are a joy. The cats (all five of them) made it feel just like a home. Julia is hilarious and wonderfully hospitable, and was always up for a chat and a cup of tea. I couldn't recommend Julia's place enough. Thank you!
Julia is a very lovely, friendly and worm person, extremely accommodating. I felt at home from the first minute. The house is very nice, very well kept and very clean. Room was spacious, airy and light. Loved the room! I will recommend to anyone, you will be lucky to get it! I will stay there gain
I really enjoyed my time in Julia's house.
She was so kind and always available to give you indication and suggestions.
I think I couldn't get a better Homestay experience. Julia welcomed me in a very kind way. She's a wonderful person, who is always ready to help and give good advices. I felt really comfortable staying at her house, the room is big and cosy. I would love to visit Julia again one day.
Thank u for the unforgettable week!

Julia, welcomed me in the most hospitable and kind way. I am very much looking forward to visiting Julia again next time I need accommodation in London.
Very nice and clean house, good central location. Julia is a great host.
I had a wonderful stay in her house. Julia is a very nice person, the room is big, there is a lot of place to put our things. amazing! if I have the chance to come back in London, I will take a room again in her house.
Julia was very friendly and welcoming. Lovely big room, quiet at the top of the house. Would definitely stay again!
Had a great stay, room was fab, was well looked after and the location for my needs just perfect. Thank you.
Actually advertised as a "lovely Victorian bedroom" is not really a bedroom but a makeshift living room. There was no place to hang our clothes just one or two small drawers to put small stuff. In the kitchen, the cats were on the kitchen table. I love the house and its occupants because it gave us an inkling of a real British life. The people living in this house were varied with different jobs, very interesting and gave us a change from the usual cold hotel rooms. I love that we were welcomed the first day, the host was not there but there was this young man who made tea and made us feel welcome.
