    We spent 4 days @Lisa Marie 's house and our stay was great.
    She is helpful and warm, and all is done to make you feeling like home.
    No doubt that we will come back!

    very poor beds, two matresses on each other, asking where I came from and when we came to visit, the desire for the night to stay in that room, I had to sleep in another place.

    Dear Darius
    I take all comments onboard however I find your comments not only fabricated and false.
    Having hosted for over 10 years and had the pleasure of meeting some lovely families and people, both you and your “wife” were by far the rudest I have ever met.
    Having booked the Homestay last minute on the day of arrival you failed to communicate your arrival time.
    You turned up unannounced whilst we were preparing your room.
    Maybe you are not used to having the pleasant opportunity of meeting ethnic minorities and I say this by the look on your faces when your saw my family.
    Your “wife” was rude and dismissive to my child totally uncalled for.
    Guests who state they are from the UKs aren’t with no bags but use hosts home for inappropriate use is not what Homestay is marketed at.

    The house was clean and Lisa and her daughter were helpful. We were four and there were other 6 people living in the house at the same time as ours. We were given Lisa’s daughter and Lisa’s son rooms, with all their stuff inside. There are only two bathrooms. A bit too packed.

    Lisa was very friendly and welcoming and the room was clean. The house is very close to the station.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
