Staying at Rehana’s was interesting but mostly uncomfortable. I’ve given 2 stars because the first day was welcoming and the house is very clean but rest of my stay was unbearable.
When you book and pay for a room, it automatically becomes your private space but not to Rehana. She entered the room every chance she got, opening the windows, touching and moving my stuff etc. I suffer from stress-induced migraine so the less light I’m exposed to the better for my health and every day I got home from work, the windows were open with so much light in triggering a headache after a long days work.
My stay felt like i was living on a military base. There are so many rules outlined. I felt overwhelmed and like I was walking on egg shells every time I entered the house. I took pictures of all the post-it’s plastered around the house but can’t post pictures in the review box unfortunately.
Lastly, I very minimally caused a burn to the rug at the entrance of the room from ironing (again I have pictures but can’t post) and was asked to pay £300 for this. Rehana said she had to changed the entire rug because of the damage which was barely there. I admit I made a mistake and owned up to it but £300 was not justifiable. I showed the pictures to my coworkers and they all said the most I should have paid was £150 or way less considering Rehana is never going to change the entire rug. I did pay without any complaints because I wanted my stay to be free from even more stress.
This was a long review but I wanted to outline my experiences and make people aware of what they might get into when staying here.
Staying with Rehana was great. Everything was clean and comfortable. The Booking worked out very well.
Very nice room, good bed and clean.
I spent the best time with this family. They are kind ، respectful and friendly .thank rehana for host me .
