It was spacious for our family of 4 and in a quiet neighborhood. Only a short walk to the Tube station. The washing machine was broken when we arrived, so Tania picked up our laundry and took it to her house to wash, dry & iron. I was very impressed by her kindness! Loved having a gas stove and a full-size refrigerator. Also, having the bath separate from the toilet was another bonus. 2 could use sinks/mirrors at the same time. Loved our stay her and would stay here again.

The flat has all that we need and more. The facilities are modern, clean, and accessible. The location is awesome with one bus run to Piccadilly or transfer to parts around. We could not ask for more thanks to Georgia Florey and George. The flat we use is on the first floor (one floor above ground by Canada''s terms) and is quiet. Two bedrooms with an en suite and a second bath are also great. Thanks again to the folks that make London home.
