Louise and Paul are kind. The house is warm and clean. For breakfast you can have milk with cereals or bread with butter and jam. The area is quiete. The house is 15 minutes walking from Grove Park Station. You can reach the city centre in about 20 minutes by train.
Homestay war die beste Erfahrung, die wir machen konnten. Kein anonymes Hotel sondern eine „ echte Engländerin „, die uns viele wertvolle Tipps gegeben hat.
Louise war unglaublich freundlich! Ihr Haus sauber und ruhig. Die Gegend sehr sicher, obwohl wir oft noch am späten Abend dort unterwegs waren.
Wir fühlten uns dort sehr wohl.
Vielen Dank, Louise!
J'ai vraiment beaucoup apprécié mon séjour chez Louise. Je m'y suis tout de suite sentie très bien accueillie. La maison est très jolie, très propre. J'avais une belle chambre et un lit douillet. Louise est une hôtesse accueillante, souriante. Elle m'a donné de bons conseils, j'ai apprécié sa gentillesse, son partage et nos petites discussions en anglais. Je retournerai avec beaucoup de plaisir chez Louise.
Nice place & lovely host :)
The stay in their house was very nice.
Louise is a friendly and kind Human :-)

We had a lovely stay at Louise's house. The house and our room were clean and comfortable. It was not necessary to bring towels, hairdryer, or bedding with us. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe. She helped us with any question and gave us great tips for the city as well. Although the house is a bit away from the centre it is now problem to get into London. (15 min walk + 20 min train ride). The light breakfast was good.
Thank you Louise. We enjoyed our stay. :)
I stayed at Louise's house for 5 days and I really had a nice time. The house was very clean and tidy and my bedroom too. Louise is very kind and I felt very comfortable with her. Breakfast was very tasty and I felt free to help myself with all I needed in the kitchen. I had dinner with her every evening and I have to say that the food was very good. Thanks Louise for everything!! Big hug
Very nice homestay. Thanks very much misss Louise.
I was in the house of Louise for 2 weeks and it was a very good experience. Louise is very friendly and helped me so much for my beggining in London. The bed is confortable and the neighborhood is very quiet and safe.
This review is long overdue! I stayed with Louise for about a week in July. She was a wonderful hostess and even met me in the city my first day so I could know where her house is. The location is outside of central London in a quiet suburb, but getting in and out of the city was very easy and convenient. Thanks so much for opening up your home, Louise!
