I am from London, England and my interests are travelling, culture (museums, art galleries, history), good food and wine and generally enjoying life and seeing as much of the world as I can. Like to think I am a friendly and positive person !!
Cheryl, pleased you enjoyed your stay. Lovely to meet you. You mention the keys. I have never had a problem regarding this during my 2 years as a host. I am very flexible with accomodating all of my guests needs. As a rule check out is around 12 midday and check in is from 2pm. However, if guests like yourself arrive to London earlier in the morning they are more than welcome to come and drop off their baggage and return later in the day for the room. I always do try to do a time to suit. If you had told me you had wanted to stay out late before returning I would have arranged that for you however you mentioned quite a few times that due to your very early morning departure you were happy to come back and relax for the evening. I would never expect a guest to have any inconvenience and always try to make everyone happy and enjoy their visit to London.
