House rulesWe offer this accommodation to people who come to our city for the purpose of visiting, are sensitive enough to understand their allocated space is part of our family home and that Caroline & I are both working and are not professional hoteliers
Anyone who'd like to use our room as a “love nest” for example (e.g. to stay in all the time to only come out just for the bare necessities) or have breakfast at noon, or anything of that ilk, we would recommend several fine hotels in our area but our house is not one of them.
Breakfast is between 8 - 10 am. We can provide in our kitchen a space in the fridge for some drinks but no cooking. You are welcome to use the washing machine if you are staying with us for longer than 7 days.
We would require to take a copy of your passport or photo ID on arrival please.
No smoking & no pets.

Reviews of this property
I stayed in Caroline and George`s wonderful house the second time. They are super friendly and helped with all my questions which made my stay again a absolutely great experience. George made a nice breakfast in the morning which was always a good start in the day. I am pretty sure that I am going to stay there again.
I stayed with my 12 year old daugther 3 nights with George&Caroline and it was a more than pleasant visit. When we arrived after a dreadfull yourney, they provided us a warm welcom with toast and jam and a nice cup of tea: it felt like coming home. George & Caroline were friendly, helpfull when needed, hospitable and also discrete. The room and bathroom were nice and clean. When we are going back to London, we will certainly visit them again!
George and Caroline are the best hosts to imagine! They were very friendly, caring and always helpful if we needed something. The room is beautiful, very clean and well equipped. George made a great breakfast every morning, with toast, jam, cheese, ham, croissants, cereals, orange juice and tee. It was a real pleasure to stay with them and we would come back anytime!
Caroline and George were very kind and friendly hosts! The house is beautiful and we enjoyed the lovely decoration. The room was very clean and is absolutely recommendable. The accommodation is also easy to reach by bus from the city center.
George and Caroline were really wonderful hosts. They made our first trip to England an absolute pleasure! The room was clean and comfortable. The sun room where they served breakfast was picturesque and the food was delicious. Best way to start the day! They were very helpful with giving directions and suggestions of places to visit in the city. Our favorite spot that we visited was the South Bank of the Thames and it was at George's recommendation! Their flat was easy to find and not too far from the best places in London. George and Caroline's company was delightful. They were hospitable, friendly, and great conversationalists! We very much look forward to coming back and staying with them again. This beats any Airbnb we've stayed at.

We arrived in Brief Street. After 2 minutes we had the feeling to be at home. And during our stay we got only warm confirmations about that feeling: nice room, excellent breakfast and nice talks.
Thanks a lot and till soon!

George and Caroline were excellent hosts. We've felt very good there.
The room is very cosy, clean and quiet.
George is very helpful. He has explained us all important things and has reserved a parking spot for us. This was very, very fine. We hope that we we will return sonetime. Thanks for all.
This was our first trip ever with Wimdu and we are very pleased to have come across George & Caroline. The accomodation is nice, a bit separated at the end of the corridor with the bathroom right next to it. There is a kettle in the room with tea and coffee available.To have breakfast offered was super for us because I travelled with my son and after starving the whole night he could tuck in right away :-). I can very much confirm that George was very helpful with transport and food places, giving advices or hinting at alternatives. The place is very quiet for a city like London. So overall, I can highly recommend this place and, above all, our hosts. Thank you, George and Caroline.
