J'ai été très bien accueilli par Samia et son mari. Le quartier et la chambre étaient fidèles à ce que j'en attendais.
Même si je n'étais pas très disponible pendant les 5 jours passés chez Samia, nous avons quand même trouvé un peu de temps autour d'un café et d'un morceau de gâteau qui avait été gentillement préparé.
Welcoming family orientated couple. Not pretentious. Immaculate and well appointed bathroom and kitchen. Clean towels provided. Quiet house on quiet road. Renting a cycle for 2 days from station bikes cost £17 and makes it easier to make trips to and from centre. Rail station very close
The room and the whole house are clean and comfy and Samia and Bashir are excellent hosts. My overall experience was very positive. The time spent with them made me feel like a tourist again in a town where I have already lived for many years. Thanks!
Samia and Bashir are excellent hosts. They are very kind and welcoming people.
The kitchen is an great place to relax, have a cup of tea, and talk with the hosts. The small bedroom is cozy. The bathroom is clean and surprisingly big. Overall, the house is quite nice to stay in.
Samia and Bashir are really lovely, nice people, welcoming and easy going. The house is beautiful. I spent a lot of time in the kitchen which is very nice. Samia cooks fantastic food too :) The room is a bit small, but the description was accurate and it was what I needed. I think if you don't have 3 large suitcases like I did, the room wouldn't feel as small. The house is incredibly clean. It feels great. You will want to keep it this way. Shared bathroom is modern nice and spacious and clean. Location is great, very safe, close to the train station. Overall great experience - I am moving to Cambridge for a year so I will pass by Samia for a tea for sure! :)
J'ai été très bien reçu chez Samia, leur maison est très jolie et super propre !

About the Host, Samia
I am originally from Mediterranean countrie and moved to the UK few years back to be with my husband. I am very easy to get on with, sociable, friendly, caring and honest. I enjoy entertaining and cooking for friends and family, especially dishes like tagines, couscous, sweets etc.. For other interests, I like various outdoor activities like walking, site seeing, swimming etc... I like shopping and travelling too.
My husband Bash is a professional working in the Semiconductors industry. His interest is mainly football (playing & watching), tennis, Reading, walking, cycling, travelling.
Together we love welcoming people from different parts of the world to our home.
We are both spiritual and one thing we value most is to make our guests VERY WELCOME and FEEL AT HOME ALL THE TIME.
