"We have returned home after a simply wonderful week in London. We loved the Queensgate apartment. What a clever use of space! It was very comfortable for the two of us and we got the hang of the stairs right away. Your restaurant recommendations were great. We loved both Clark's and L'etranger...delicious dinners at both. We'd also like to recommend to you a shop for prepared food....Ottolenghi....on Holland Street right off of Kensington Church Street. I was given one of his cookbooks as a gift and was very excited to learn that he had a store close to the apartment. We brought a delicious dinner in on Tuesday night to have before going to the London Symphony. A fabulous finale to the week! We are already talking about 2013....will it be the Queensgate in London again, or back to the Grenache apartment in Paris? We'll let you know as soon as we know ourselves. P.S. The only thing we couldn't fine in the apartment was a set of demi-tasse cups for the Nespresso machine. We looked everywhere! The washing machine worked great!"

"We had a genuinely wonderful time staying in the Walton. It was perfectly located a nice stroll or short cab ride away from anything we wanted to see. The attention to detail was lovely and everything, including guide books and a map of the local area was exactly where we needed it."

"The Hornton was a delightful apartment which was roomy enough for our three teenagers (wireless network worked well too). It was incredibly quiet which was amazing for central London and we felt very safe there. Its position was ideal being between two tube stations - we preferred Notting Hill as the Central Line was generally not too crowded compared with the Circle Line. Our only slight quibble was that the couch was very uncomfortable indeed (OK for lying down but horrible to sit on!)."
"The Cornwall flat was more than it was advertised to be. After touring all day (most of it on foot) it was so wonderful to come to the flat and sink into the luxurious bed. It was conveniently located and the area felt so safe we walked around until later in the evening/night without fear. Madelyn and Philippe were very gracious hostesses and we had privacy but they were also accessible when we had questions. We will definitely stay there again for our next trip to London."

"We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It was clean, updated, and had every convenience we needed (we especially liked having a washer and dryer available, as it meant we could pack much less!). It was big enough for the 4 of us to spread out, which was important to us, and was very convenient to grocery stores, pharmacies, cash machines, and tube stops. Located on a beautiful residential street, and very quiet. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a vacation apartment in London!"
"Our group of 5 people stayed in the Hornton apartment in Sept 2011. It is a beautiful apartment in a nice and convenient location. Everything was as it is advertised on the website. It worked very well for us. Thanks so much. Carolyn Hall"

"We had a wonderful stay. The Cornwall was so convenient to the pastry shops, markets and tube. It was a two minute walk through a lovely neighborhood to everything. The patio was perfect to come back and have an cup of tea. Thanks for a great time and we look forward, in a year or two, to staying in one of your Paris apartments. Tessie was so helpful and everyone should use your driver. It was so nice not to have to deal with luggage and directions after a flight."
"My 19 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Queen's Gate. We couldn't have stayed in a better location and the apartment was lovely. It had everything we needed and the booklet of information came in very handy. We tried many of the suggested restaurants and enjoyed all of them. We liked being able to walk out the door and walk in any direction to get to many restaurants, shopping and tourist attractions. We didn't make a lot of use of the kitchen but it was nice to have the facilities on the few days that we just wanted to grab a bite to eat between excursions. We highly recommend booking Lushi for your ride from the airport. It was nice to speak with a local upon arrival and he was very courteous and friendly. We hope to stay at the Queen's Gate again during out next visit to London."

"We had a wonderful stay in London at the Hornton mews house! I actually grew up in London and did not want to be confined to a stuffy hotel room. The Hornton was perfect for our family and could not have suited our needs better. I thought the photos on your website looked fabulous and it was quite a surprise to discover that the real thing was even better than the pictures! Thank you also for the doctor recommendation at Cromwell hospital. My husband obtained some strong antibiotics and was soon on the mend. I would have to rate London Perfect superior in every way. Thank you so much."
Carolyn B, USA
"We were extremely pleased with the flat. The location was outstanding - close to the subway, stores, restaurants, parks and museums. The flat was beautifully decorated, very clean and had everything we needed including loads of information about London and our neighbourhood. Our only suggestion would be to ensure there is enough dish detergent, hand soap and toilet tissue for guests for a one week stay. My husband and I and our 12 year old daughter would definitely rent this flat again and we will most certainly recommend London Perfect to others traveling to London. I wish we had known about your rentals in Paris as the place we rented from another company was not nearly as nice as our Queen's Gate home."
Elaine & Rick J, Canada
"We enjoyed the Queens Gate apartment very much. It had everything we needed and was delightfully decorated. The stairs were a bit tricky, but other than that, it was great. Close to the tube and lots of places were within walking distance. Madelyn sent us tons of helpful information and we were able to use our iPad with the WiFi access. Loved it!"
Chris & Julie Cross, USA
"We absolutely loved the apartment. Fantastic location on a beautiful street in Kensington. So easy to get anywhere with the tube stop just a couple of blocks away and plenty of taxis in the neighborhood. The apartment was great for a couple, but it could sleep up to two more. Everything was updated, clean, functional and very comfortable. We enjoyed the garden. What a treat to have that kind of private space in the middle of London. Madelyn and Philippe were fantastic. Such wonderful hosts, offering suggestions, getting us in touch with people who could help with anything. I would highly recommend this for a short or extended stay in London. Loved it."
Jerry & Mary R, Illinois, USA
"Apartment was in great location, beautifully fitted out. Would recommend."

"Our party of four adults stayed in the 3 bedroom, 2 bath Hornton Mews property during the London leg of our vacation. We found the apartment utterly modern, clean, comfortable and livable. The location between Notting Hill and Kensington high Street, both with underground stops, couldn't have been better. We walked downhill to the Kensington tube on our way out to see the sights and then returned home to the Notting Hill tube station in the afternoons because it was a downhill walk from there to the Hornton property, much appreciated after a day of sightseeing. Lovely area. We sampled restaurants in the neighborhood and were never disappointed. Shopping was great in the area, and when we cooked in, food from the Whole Foods on Kensington High Street made the meal special. We needed a car and driver to get to the airport and used the services of Luchi, recommended by the management. He is such an elegant and charming man. He provided the needed service in a timely and helpful manner and I can't recommend him highly enough. We had a wonderful stay at this apartment."
"Outstanding apartment. First, the location in central London could not be better. The apartment is two blocks from the intersection of Cromwell and Gloucester, which is where the Gloucester Tube Station is located. The Piccadilly line, which goes directly to Heathrow Airport goes through this station, and the Piccadilly line also goes directly to the Covent Garden theater district. The Cornwall apartment is less than a 5 minute walk from the tube station. The Waitrose grocery store is right at the Gloucester Tube Station, Sainbury's, which is a larger market, is about two blocks away, and the flagship Whole Foods in London is at the next major street on Kensington. The neighborhood is lovely and safe. Second, the apartment is beautifully decorated and has an excellent layout. It has a private entrance, then the living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom laid out in a linear pattern, with the bedroom opening onto a small garden patio with a gazebo. The apartment is even prettier than the pictures on the website, and the furnishings are really quite beautiful. The London Perfect staff are always available, as are the owners, one of whom is a retired cardiologist. I mention this because emergencies do happen, and the owners have helped guests through several of these. The apartment also has Lushi's car service available for trips to and from Heathrow. We used Lushi on our trip to Heathrow (50 GBP), and it was a wonderful way to leave London. One last note and a suggestion: my wife and I rent apartments when we travel. This was the best one ever, without question. It's very popular, and I would suggest trying to plan ahead in renting it. If you stay there, you'll see why. We call the Cornwall the "perfect" in London Perfect."

"Stayed at the Hornton during a March break vacation. The Mews were in a fabulous location, close to great restaurants and the tube. Very clean and new appliances. While close to everything it was very quiet. The 3 bedrooms were perfect for our family (14 year old son, 11 year old daughter) and the layout was great for giving everyone their own space to unwind after a day sight seeing. The apartment was very clean and having a full kitchen allowed us to deal with breakfast and some dinners in a manner that allowed us to deal with certain food allergies. Would very highly recommend this apartment and would look at rebooking when we return to London. In addition to the great apartment, the car company and catering person (we had two dinners prepared and brought in) were top rate. As an overall note I would advise that I have highly recommended your organization to several colleagues who are looking to travel to London, Paris and Italy. In fact I have reviewed your sites for Italy, which is coming up on our agenda. I have found your organization extremely professional, and your properties live up to their billing. Both my wife and I, who both travel on business and are used to Four Seasons quality accommodation, were very pleased with your apartments."

"This is a lovely flat in a fantastic location. Two tube stops within extremely easy walking distance (5 min)and black cabs pass frequently. The loft is exactly as depicted on the website - clean, compact, and perfect for a vacation stay. The linens are great (towels are John Lewis), and even shampoo, conditioner, and a hair dryer are supplied! Security is also good. I will definitely stay here again, and will recommend it to friends. I will also recommend Lushi's car service for transport to and from Heathrow - how wonderful to be picked up at the door and not have to haul bags on a train!"
Kris, Nebraska, United States
"We cannot recommend the Queen's Gate Studio Loft enough. Beautiful furnishings in London's best neighborhood. Just across the street from the Natural History Museum and a few blocks from Kensington Gardens. We will definitely stay here when we return to London. Loved the kitchen and bath, free wifi, comfy bed, great customer service. We felt like real Londoners staying here!"
Gabe and Jenny Resendez, Florida, United States
"Although small, this immaculately clean and well-appointed apartment never felt cramped. Sleek, modern furniture and fixtures combine well with elegant ceiling and wall paintings in keeping with the building's refined history. Excellent neighborhood always felt safe. Book containing instructions for appliances, suggestions for shopping in the area, and guidance on transportation most helpful. Welcome gift of wine quite nice, as was Madelyn's warm greeting on arrival. We would stay again!"
Dr. and Mrs. Keenan, USA
"The Cornwall apartment met all of our expectations and more. We were traveling with a baby under 1 years old and the layout of the apartment allowed us to enjoy our evenings in the kitchen/living room while our baby slept in the back bedroom. A baby cot was put in our apartment upon arrival without extra cost and we were fortunate enough to have Madelyn and Philippe's daughter babysit for us so that we could enjoy a night out in the city :-) As if that wasn't enough, on two occasions, we returned home from a tiring and busy day in London to find some homemade fruit crisp at the apartment entrance! We definitely recommend staying in this apartment - the neighbourhood, apartment and owners are all stunning."
