Reviews for this property

  • Very convenient location. Spacious apartment which worked exceedingly well for us as our son was living in Young St in Kensington. Helpful taxi driver who knew all the shortcuts from Gatwick.

    by William
  • Cornwall Gardens was a wonderful pied-de-terre while in London. The apartment was simply fabulous, with all the necessities (wonderful shower!) for making our stay in London so memorable. I was rehearsing and performing almost everyday and night of my 2 week stay, and the ease of both transport and situation, as well as the delightful accommodation, made my life so much easier. Thank you so much. I will be asking for this apartment next time I'm in London.

    by Ms Daley
  • Loved the apartment - comfortable, roomy, well appointed, good area and close to tube. Must be lovely in summer with the terrace. Have already recommended you to 2 couples. We will certainly book through you next time we are in London.

    by Ms Anderson
  • We enjoyed the flat and thought the "Home from Home" personnel were quick to respond to the few questions we had. We will recommend hfh and use the service again.

    by Scott USA
  • Staying in a HFH flat is like coming home for us. I tell everyone about you and everyone who says with you is converted. See you next year!

    by Lamson -United States
  • Beautiful apartment in perfect position.

    by Edward - Australia
  • Excellent service. Will use again

    by John - Australia
  • This is a great flat and we will surely want to stay in it again. You do a really good job and I have recommended Home from Home to many of my friends.

    by Mary - United States
  • I just want to thanks. I had a wonderful vacation , really good time in London.

    by Leila - Brazil
  • Loved the flat...

    by Linda - United States
  • The location was exceptionally convenient (shops, transport) and the flat was very quiet. Internet service was perfect - a real asset that i would emphasize to my friends, as this is not always what one discovers in rental properties.

    by William United States
  • The apartment was very nice and met all of our expectations. We were very satisfied with the Home from Home service.

    by Michael - United States
  • We love the Cornwall Gardens property. We have been staying there for several years and consider it our home-away-from-home. Cyril and his staff are great and the whole process is smooth and easy. Looking forward to next year.

    by Sheila United States
  • The booking process with your company was exemplary, and has fulfilled all expectations. The taxi driver was competent with his explanation of the keys etc. The area (which we knew) was centrally located which was what we wanted. The flat had a pleasing view over a garden square, and it was exceedingly quiet at all times of day and night. The bed was extremely comfortable.

    by Margaret Australia
  • Excellent experience; lovely flat!

    by Donald USA
  • We couldn't be happier with Home from Home. The Cornwall Gardens flat has become our Home from Home. We really feel like we have come home when we arrive.

    by Sheila USA
  • Very pleasant and safe location with excellent amenities such as supermarkets, dining options, underground and museums. We loved the outdoor deck with views over South Kensington. We won't hesitate to recommend Cornwall Gardens to our family and friends.

    by Michael New Zealand
  • The flat was very comfortable and pleasant and in a perfect quiet location. We particularly enjoyed the private little terrace, the windows overlooking the Cornwall gardens, and the well-stocked serviceable kitchen. Everything we needed was right there.

    by Linnea USA
  • Thank you. We have already recommended the apartment and your services to a couple of friends who will be traveling to London in the spring. We really enjoyed our stay and the apartment.
