Maria & Colin were very warm and welcoming. They even gave me the bigger room because it was not booked. Their home was lovely and comfortable and I had a great night's sleep. The bathroom is just across the hall from the room and the shower was nice and hot and had consistent pressure and heat.
Their house is just a 20 minute walk to the University of Surrey. When it was raining they gave me a ride to the campus, which was super nice of them.
It's a nice home away from home if you need to stay in Guildford!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Colin and Maria's home. The single room is just as described - and ideal for studious students. Very cosy, warm and quiet - which was perfect for all of my long hours studying as a visiting PhD student. The location is convenient - with plenty of options for buses into Guildford Town Centre or the University of Surrey. You can also walk to the University which takes about 25 minutes. The River Wey is very close and its paths make it ideal for jogging or biking - great on a nice day! There are also quite a few shops in walking distance to the house - handy for picking up groceries on the way home. Wifi access, use of the kitchen, as well as laundry facilities helped immensely. Most importantly, Colin and Maria made my stay so comfortable. They are such a lovely couple - very genuine and generous, friendly and flexible. They were so welcoming and open - which helped to make it feel like a home away from home. I definitely recommend staying with Colin and Maria - and I will be booking with them again on my next visit to Guildford!

Living in the city's an expensive proposition – there's no need to make it harder on yourself by paying an exorbitant amount for rent.
We believe you will find these rooms great value for money.
