Interaction with guests
We welcome you to London and our home. If you are a visitor to the city, we can provide directions and recommendations on places to go. We do tend to leave our guests to themselves as we are usually very busy. We provide a clean and safe place to stay but we don't provide a high level of social interaction. Many of our guests prefer to be left alone and not have the hosts hovering around them all the time.

This is a lovely homestay. The host is very genial and kind. The room is quite big and the bathroom is new and clean. The shower is really good. Moreover, the garden is very convenient for the person who smoking. It's a quiet place to stay.
Famille accueillante et serviable,a20mn de Londres,proches toutes commodités. Excellent qualité prix
Hosts were really friendly, the whole familly was very hapefull. I stayed with them for three weeks and it was okay. The room was really small but okay for one person, who wasn't spending much time there.
Ce séjour à été très bien. La maison est très bien située proche des transports en commun et du centre de Londres. La maison est agréable
Verginett is very kind and his family is helpful and especially his daughter, so we are so happy to stay with them
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
I stayed here with five of my friends and loved the place. The rooms had enough space for all of us, and the place was great, situated in a perfect place near everything but far enough to be a calm place. Verginett & family were very nice indeed. We got to taste some Sri Lankan food when we took dinner, and that was such a great experience, and even my vegan diet could be taken into account.
If we were able we would give this B&B 4 1/2 stars. My husband and I found the place to be very convenient to London, close to bus and underground. The host was very helpful, even driving us to the bus station on our last day. He served breakfast every morning and offered a meal in the evening for a small fee. However, the room we were in was more suited to a group of students or a family. There were four beds and a sofa in one room. We found that to be very crowded.
Very nice stay. Friendly family. Convenient for shops, buses and tube station. Children enjoyed the fast internet connection.
It was my first time in homestay! I very appreciate the journey and my host was very kind with me. Verginett Vasanthakumari, her husband and her children are amazing. It's a very good place to stay, everything is close and the center is not to far with the bus or the underground. Thank you for everything! London is wonderful!
