Philippa and her family made my first week in London feel so welcoming. From the very first night they treated me like family. The bedroom is clean and homey, and the bathrooms are the best (I'm picky about my bathrooms)! Kevin, Kathy, Calum, Philippa, and Honor are wonderful people and I would without a doubt recommend my closest friends and family to their residence. About 5 min walking distance to tube station, and about 15-20 min walking distance to local shops, banks, restaurants, etc.

Philippa's place makes you feel very welcome. Her family are amazingly open-hearted, friendly and considerate people. Seeing me around the house one day, Philippa kindly invited me to their lunch, which was very nice. I highly recommend Philippa's place if you're looking for somewhere really good.

The room is exactly as described, very clean and full of sunshine. The area is nice and calm. The breakfast is very good, cereals, bread, cheese, all kinds of fruits and jam, tea, coffee, milk, everything we needed. The host family is amazing, super nice people. My eighter year old daughter immediately 'fell in love' with the house and every member of the family. The place is not very near to her camp venue, however she said that she would live nowhere else, but in this house. And what I enjoyed the most were the nice long conversations I had with Kevin and Cathy. I highly recommand this place as you will definitely have a pleasant stay.

It's an honor to be hosted by Kevin and Cathy, they are super nice, kindhearted, considerate and approachable. It's awesome! Because of them, we had a really good time staying there. This place is quite peaceful, cozy and full of love to let you enjoy your stay in London. I am sure I will be back in the future, See you all then. Highly recommended to all of you.

I can't imagine our experience in London somewhere else but in this house. We felt so welcome and comfortable. We were invited for dinner and although they don't eat meat, we didn't miss it at all because the food was so delicious and the talk so interesting. We really would like to thank the family for making our days in London much more "British" and lovely. We recommend there for any type of traveller: family, friends or alone.we wish your stay in London as nice as it was our. Bel & Laura

The Mains house is a place to find rest after a long day in the heart of London. I can't imagine myself taking this trip without this heartwarming family. I definitely recommend this place, especially when you come here on your own like I did. It's easy to feel lonely in London, but not when you have a nice family to come home to.

Love philosophy, education, family, meeting people and good food. As a family, we host guests from all over the world. As a traveller, I mostly stay with family. The exception is India which I visit every one or two years. When there I mostly stay with friends.
