It's always a 5-star experience staying with Colin and his wife! As happy with my stay this time as last. See you guys again soon!
Enjoyable stay at Colin and Shima's. Warmly received, and well attended over the whole stay.
Great breakfasts. Towels provided, comfortable beds and quiet rooms.
We got there with 2 kids who didn't mind walking to the house from the subway and bus.
I will recommend the place to friends, and would come back if another opportunity presents.

We stayed five nights and were very satisfied. It´s a nice house, very clean and warm, and nice beds too. And Colin and his wife (sorry, we didn´t get your name) were very kind and helpful, it was really nice to get to know them and sorry to have to leave you. Their breakfasts were very good and rich, too. We can highly recommend this place for other guests.

We had lovely time at Highgate. Colin and Shima are wonderful hosts. Thank you! ❤
Good breakfast but no lunch no dinner.because she prefer to cook a lot and she won't cook for one person or two person
Colin y su mujer son una muy amable pareja. Nos atendieron con dedicacion. No hablan español pero te puedes entender con ellos.
La cama doble del jardin es comoda y grande, con silencio, y en un barrio tranquilo de bonitas calles, con casas victorianas. Buena opción.
Very nice people and flexible. The room and accomodation was as described. Nice bed, good shower, good breakfast. I would go there again if there is an occasion for it!

Really lovely stay.The hosts are lovely people and very polite ........even with one of the rudest guests.Lovely breakfast and nothing was too much trouble.Colin is quiet and courteous while Shima is like a welcoming chatty auntie, which is important when you're new to a city.As for transport,there are buses-literally at the end of the short road- taking you to Oxford St,Camden Lock,Tottenham Court Rd,or London Bridge.Will definitely go back again.
