Solid Oak floors throughout the house. Enjoy our high speed wi-fi, 42” widescreen and a freeview recorder to access dozens of tv channels.

We have a huge designer Grohe bathroom with porcelain tiles, a walk in shower (twin heads). Or, after a hard days sightseeing you can spoil yourself by having a soak in our free standing bath/soak tub which fits 2 people V comfortable. An extra lavatory downstairs.

    Very nice people, Ahman and Bruce are really kind and helpful. All enquiries have been answered promptly. Warm atmosphere. Perfect!

    From my first step into their home on, I felt very welcomed by Ahman and Bruce. Lively Ahman and well-traveled Bruce are very kind, hospitable and bright hosts which can always give you some insider tips or just an interesting chat and a smile. I consider it a great luck to have chosen them (the comprehensiveness of the room's description gave me a lot of confidence and a good feeling from the beginning) - when it comes to my next holiday in London, I know where and with whom I want to stay again!

    In terms of hospitality, I'm not sure you could beat Ahman and Bruce. They picked us up from the station after a long day of traveling, kept us updated about travel issues, got us last minute tickets to Graham Norton, shared a great lunch with us, and spent many hours chatting with us in the living room. It felt like we were staying with friends instead of paid hosts.
