We booked to stay with Janet after reading previous reviews and we weren't disappointed. The greeting was warm. Janet took us around her home and explained everything around us. We were also given a large sitting room to enjoy our evenings in. We were staying because we were attending the Crystal palace classic time trials. Janet had printed a map to show us the easiest route to the park. Overall it was a great weekend and I would recommend it.

I had read reviews of Janet's house and made 2 bookings as I was going to be in London a couple of times close together. It was a very good move. After my first visit I was not disappointed and gave a review accordingly. This visit I had a different room which was even better than the twin. Again Janet was very welcoming and I felt even more at home. I will definitely stay again and would highly recommend Janet's home

We enjoyed our 3 night stay here very much. The landlady Janet is charming and welcoming as is her partner Paul. The location is just 7 minute walk to the Sydenham rail station and almost a similar walking distance to a a smallish but vibrant pub called 161 in Kirkdale. The room is clean and welcoming. Books stacked on the desk allows the visitor to browse through them. The lounge area with TV is quite relaxing and there are a few shelves of books to read - especially travel books- if one chooses to. There are lots of cereals to choose from at breakfast. All in all, it was a very enjoyable stay. Would highly recommend this place if you need to be nearby the Sydenham or Crystal Palace area.

We had a great time at Janet and Paul's home. It was bright and comfortable and quite private. We came and went as we pleased and Paul and Janet were very accomodating. We spent a good deal of time at our son's home close by so Janet's place was very handy. We will certainly be back next year for a week if we can fit it in.

Janet was a lovely host: warm, generous, welcoming and extremely helpful. The room was beautifully decorated when we arrived and her home is spacious and comfortable. She is also a great cook!

Response from Janet:
Hi Deanna, thank you, it was our pleasure, you and Borys were a joy to host. I'm sorry but I missed the post office on Saturday to see about sending on your flip flops. I will get there as soon as I can, I just need to leave work a little early one day this week. Best wishes, JMx

Janet and Paul were great hosts, they made us feel very welcome and we really enjoyed our stay. The right balance of being friendly but also letting us get on with our own thing. The bedroom is lovely and it's great having the lounge to relax in, plus you get your own bathroom. Good transport links, restaurants and pubs all round the area plus easy to get to Crystal Palace park, which is lovely. I would definitely recommend staying here if visiting London, great hosts and great house/location.

I'm from London, married to Paul. We both work hard and enjoy getting away from it all as much as possible. We love getting away for the weekend in the UK and Europe and we also like to go further afield when we have more time. We have used Airbnb as guests too, in the UK and in Canada and the US. Our experiences helped us to become hosts ourselves. We have a modern townhouse in South East London with one double and one twin room.
