Super sympathiques, Brian et son épouse sont des hôtes exceptionnel !!!
Je les recommande vivement aux parents soucieux de confier leurs enfants dans un pays anglophone. En effet, mon fils passant le bac cette année, l'immersion lui a été très bénéfique pour réussir ses épreuves d'anglais.
Ils a été accueillis pendant 2 semaines chez Brian et a été reçu comme un prince. Très à l'écoute, Brian a été totalement disponible pour l'aider à toutes sortes de choses... visiter Londres et les environs, lui donner des explications sur les monuments, le prendre en photo, l'entrainer à progresser en anglais, le reprendre sur l'accent... De plus, Brian fait divinement bien la cuisine. Il a su également s'adapter magiquement à tous les besoins de mon fils, comme se faire discret lorsqu'il devait réviser ses cours... avec toujours une petite attention culinaire 1 heure avant le repas du soir, et ce, directement livré en chambre. Très étonnant, il a aussi été très en confiance et n'a pas hésité à prêter sa carte de bus afin que mon fils puisse voyager librement.
Il est revenu enchanté et n'a qu'une envie, c'est d'y retourner. .. De ses immersions à l'étranger, Brian place la barre très haut au niveau accueil, disponibilité, sympathie, etc... Bravo Brian et surtout un grand MERCI !
Brian and his family are simply fantastic! Brian went out of his way to make our 17 years old son feel at home during his 15 days stay with them! Everything was great from his room to the facilities he had when at home. Highly recommended!
Nostro figlio di 17 anni ha trascorso 15 giorni presso Brian e la sua famiglia. Tutto è stato perfetto! L'accoglienza e la disponibilità di Brian una rarità. Raccomandiamo caldamente questa struttura!
Brian and his family are special people. More than just a room, we rented an experience with them. They respect your space, but make themselves available for interaction at all times. They offered us dinner some nights even though we did not buy it.
The location of the house is great. It is close to a station that has connection to all the central stations. They met us at the station when we arrived and took us to the airport when we left.
Our expectations were exceeded with the Brian and his family. We are very grateful to have met they.
Brian and his family are perfect, welcoming, funny. They help you when you need it. Sometimes Brian cooked for us and proposed for a lift. Miranda is so kind. And I will miss their dog, Freddy.
Brian and his family are very kindle, they gave me the double room and was fantastic! They invited me at dinner every evening and train station is near the house. Great!
My hosts made me feel very welcome and comfortable. The location was great, just enough out of the CBD but still close so I wasn't on public transport forever.
Brian and his family are great and friendly, they helped us a lot. We stayed in a lovely house with a nice garden with beautiful trees in it in a very quiet neighbour. Brian is a reliable person, you can count on him. I will thank Brian, his wife and lovely boys for their hospitality. İf I go to london I would like to stay with them again.
Très bon accueil, hôte très à l'écoute, de bons conseils, Séjour parfait. A recommander
Brian has a lovely home in a nice quiet neighbourhood. It is a short walk to the overground station which travels into the city, and about four minutes' walk away to the nearby golf course! Brian and his family are extremely welcoming and generous hosts, and I would highly recommend a stay with them to anyone visiting London.
I had a great time staying at Brian's. He was helpful, welcoming and made me feel at home. Brian always invited me to have dinner with the family. He's such a great cook! In terms of the location, it's a 30 minute train ride to London Charing Cross which isn't too bad because it's a direct route. I would definitely stay there again if I needed a place to stay in London.
