You can expect a warm, benevolent welcome from Richard, together with any information you need, such as good places to have breakfast (The Green Cafe) and supper (The Hill). He knows Greenwich inside out. The view from the Velux window in the Attic Room must be one of the best in London, either by day or night, when you can see as far up river as The Eye, The Shard, St Paul's and on the opposite bank, Canary Wharf. Greenwich is a great base for any visit to London. You can travel up the river by the fast Clipper service, or sit up front on the Dockland Light Railway or nip in on the Overground Rail service to Cannon Street (just remember that the last Overground weekday train back leaves at 21:57). You'll also find a very comfy bed!
Richard was a wonderful host. He was very helpful in coordinating on the day of my arrival, and in offering recommendations on where to go or pick up things I needed, checking in here and there throughout my trip. The room was clean, quiet, and very comfortable. I wasn't around the house very much during my stay, but when I was, Richard and his family members were very welcoming and polite.
Richard was polite and friendly when I arrived and the room was clean and as pictured. It doesn't have a door which is a little strange and may make some feel uncomfortable.
The kitchen and bathroom were not particularly clean and the lounge off limits, meaning if you want a cup of tea you have to sit in the kitchen to drink it.
I didn't see much of Richard as he disappeared into the lounge and closed the door shortly after I arrived but he did say I could knock if I needed anything.
I arrived quite late but welcomed cordially still.
During my short stay I felt like a true guest.
Greenwich is a great place to see London but feel relaxed. Richards home is very handy for all forms of transport and the attic room has charm and a very comfortable sofa bed. We enjoyed our short time there. Thank you Richard.
Richard is a very polite individual who was kind and provided very useful information. The attic room was fine. At night it is very quiet and the attic itself is very dark once you pull the blinds down so the morning sun will not wake you up. However the room does not have a door and some people may feel they don't have sufficient privacy. Similarly, there are no wardrobes or anything to put your clothes in. Transportation was pretty reasonable and one can be in central London in a bout 30 to 45 minutes.
Richard was a great host and I felt very warmly welcomed. The room is very peaceful and confortable. Great expérience!
Great location, with fantastic views over almost all of London from the attic room. Richard was very welcoming and accommodating, thanks for everything!
Richard is a very friendly and thoughtful person, we had great stay at his house for 2 nights.
The Attic Room and its view of London are so amazing. His home is very clean and comfortable.
Quiet neighbourhood is also nice and his recommended restaurant: the hill is so good and kind.
We use the DLR and 188-bus to Russell Square to visit central London.
Greenwich and Greenwich Park are wonderful place, same as I visited 10years ago.
Many thanks Richard and his wife from Toru & Miki.
I can't say enough about our great experience sharing Richard's home. Richard will recall I was at first reluctant due to the shared bathroom and what I perceive to be Greenwich's distance from the Centre of things London. In fact, as Richard predicted, there were no bathroom conflicts. The location was a perfect escape from the din of a more central location. My son and I were grateful for our attic room retreat after a long day. It was a great home-base.
Greenwich is also a great place to explore. And we did. The National Maritime Museum has an exquisite exhibit of Lord Nelson artifacts. In a WWII exhibit, I met a veteran who shared his story including (website hidden) about meeting The PM and V. Putin when he and other survivors of the Arctic missions each received the Arctic Star.
The area has some great shops of new, antique and potential treasures to explore. Restaurants in the area are reasonably priced, but I encourage visitors to explore side streets to avoid high street establishments that refused to serve tap water (£2.50 for bottled) and charged exhorbitant fees for using credit card. One favourite, was a sausage shop (Heaps) and a little cafe near Greenwich station that served a £4.50 all-day breakfast. Richard's Greenwich guidebook was helpful for meal and pint planning.
Richard's home is easily walkable to the station and all places of interest in Greenwich.
Richard was a kind and thoughtful host. Boundaries were clear regarding his work and private spaces and house rules were appropriate. I enjoyed our long chats.
I would (read I will) stay here again -- perhaps on a return visit with my daughter.
Thank you Richard from Barb & Devon
