Lorraine's place is in the perfect location for getting around London. Within easy walking distance to Hammersmith transport hub that will connect you to anywhete you might want to go or if you dont fancy walking there is a bus you can hail right outside the door! Very close to the river for quiet strolls, the National Wetland Centre if you want to check out the local wildlife and of course Kew Gardens are not too far away.

Lorraine's house is one of the best places I have stayed, always had time for a little chat over a nice coffee. Very helpful with the knowledge of the surrounding area and traveling around London. If asked I'm sure that Lorraine would help anyone who stays there no matter what they need. On the top of my list if I stay close to hammersmith again.

When i arrived at Lorraine`s she made me feel comfortable as soon as i walked through the door, friendly and welcoming. The description of the room was as described on the site. Lorraine showed me around the house where my room was and the bathroom, very easy to chat too and good conversation. I would recommend anyone to stay at Lorraine`s and i will come back when i am staying in the area.

I stayed at Lorraine's place for a week whilst working in London. The place was very clean and as described on the posting. The bed is comfortable and the house was comfortably warm which was very nice when outside it was freezing. Lorraine is a very considerate person always looking to help her guests in any way possible. She was always kind and very helpful. I would go back to Lorraine's place when there is an opportunity.
