    We were made very welcome in this spotless, comfortable, friendly home, in spite of a late evening arrival. Our room was lovely. As we were visiting Reading for a family wedding, we didn't see as much of our host and hostess as we would have liked, but felt very free to come and go and enjoyed the chat we had. Self service breakfast whenever we wanted made for a relaxed stay. We will have to wait for another time to sample Farah's cooking! Highly recommended!

    Farah & Asif were warm & welcoming. The room was nice & the bed comfortable. They were very happy to feed me when I arrived after 9pm on Thursday. They helped me with the local buses as I needed to go into Reading while I was there. I would happily recommend them to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

    Very comfortable house and room. Spacious, tidy and clean. Farah is very nice, lovely and friendly person. And very helpful. If u don't know Reading city, Farah will explain you everything you have to know. She is good cook. Dinners were more than tasty! We spent there only 2 days but felt like at home. We recomend everybody to stay in this home.
    Thanks Farah! - Peter&Ewelina

    Fajny, wygodny dom, pokój czysty, przestronny. Farah jest bardzo sympatyczną, przyjacielską i pomocną osobą. Jeśli nie znasz miasta, nie wiesz jak gdzieś trafić - ona na pewno Ci pomoże. Poza tym dobrze gotuje, no chyba, że nie możesz się obyć bez tradycyjnego schabowego ;)
    Zatrzymaliśmy się tam na raptem 2 noce, ale atmosfera była zupełnie domowa. Polecamy wszystkim!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
