Janey est une personne accueillante, et discrète. La chambre n'est pas très grande, mais très propre et donne sur un beau jardin. Janey possède deux chats adorables. Mais attention pour les personnes allergiques aux chats. Ce qui n'est pas notre cas. Nous avons pu les caresser avec plaisir. La cuisine permet un petit déjeuner, mais il n'y a pas de plaque de cuisson pour faire un œuf sur le plat. Nous avons passés quatre jours agréables. La situation à mi chemin entre wimbledon station et wimbledon park était idéale.
Janey was very welcoming and accommodating. She catered for our needs and her flat was very well placed for Wimbledon town centre. The room was very cosy, warm and comfortable. Janey made us feel at home.
Lovely airbnb experience in Janey's house. The house is quite well located in Wimbledon. The garden room make you feel in another place and you can even see some squirrels from your bed with binoculars. Everything was completely clean and tidy and Janey provide you all the info an accommodation that you need in her house. When I had to the ironing she realized that the ironing board was not perfect so she bought another one at the next day!. But above all she is very friendly, respectful and helpful. I totally agree that Janey is a SuperHost!
What a fantastic first experience with airbnb.
Janey was a fantastic host, she was kind, generous and went out if her way to make our first time in London a great one. Her flat was so cozy, we immediately felt at home. Wifi was quick and readily available and breakfast was plentiful and delicious.
The cats are lovely and it was great to have squirrels outside our bedroom window. Our room was made up daily and fresh water provided.
The location is good although it can be trial to walk to station in the rain. However, Wimbledon village is lovely and they're are plenty of nice places to eat and shop. Janey has many good suggestions of places to go in London and the best way to get there. She also provided feast maps and guidebooks for use during your stay.
Overall, we loved our stay at Janey's and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We stayed at Janey's house for 3 days. The place is walking distance to wimbledon station. She is very welcoming and helped us figure out how to get to different places in London and even recommended good shopping places. Her house is very homey and she respects your privacy. We recommend staying into her place!
I have been to London for Xmas period with my mom and we couldn't choose a better place to stay than Janey's house.
She is helpful, lovely and one of a kind.
We strongly recommend her place either for short or long stay.
I would highly recommend Janey's generous hospitality. Although it was a fleeting visit Janey made us feel so welcome in her home without being at all intrusive. Plenty of helpful information was given before we arrived; the room was lovely and spotlessly clean with a pretty view of her garden; the bed (as many have remarked) was indeed blissfully comfortable and Janey went out of her way to provide what we fancied for breakfast despite the fact that usually toast and marmalade will suffice! We wanted for nothing but had we forgotten our toothbrushes Janey could even offer brand new ones for us to use! Over and above expectations totally! Thank you for having us Janey, next time I hope we can stay for longer!
Janey was a perfect host,careful, discreet and amiable. the room is perfect with the most confortable bed i had never try!i stongly recommend! I hope i will (website hidden) back to her lovely home!
I have booked Janey's room for my father and his wife when they came to London for a short visit and they had a very pleasant stay there. I can only recommend anyone to book with Janey as she is a welcoming and friendly host, who offers a beautiful accommodation in a fantastic location. Five star service all round!
I had a very nice stay at Janey's place even though unfortunately I had to leave earlier than planned because of my work. Janey made us feel warmly welcome, the room was nicely decorated and cosy and everything was very clean. Janey takes very good care of her guests and makes sure that they feel comfortable and have everything they need during their stay at her place. I can absolutely recommend Janey as a host for everybody searching for a peaceful room in London! Thank you Janey for everything! :)
