"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."

"Location: Excellent. Across from Natural History Museum and near V&A museum. Short walk to Harrods. Two tube stops nearby. Unlimited shops in neighborhood, from Boots to Waitrose. Lots of good restaurants close at hand. Apartment: exactly as pictured. Beautiful decor from paintings to "frescoes". First floor, street level, (not below). Bedroom: cozy, luxurious sheets and gorgeous duvet cover, very good reading lights. Kitchen: full range, oven, microwave, refrig, washing machine. Granite counter, sleek cabinets, 2 coffeepots (the espresso one was amazingly good..and we had just come from a few weeks in Rome so we knew what a good cup of espresso tasted like). Bathroom: spacious, well lit, plenty of counterspace and drawers, good water pressure. Entertainment: T.V. with multiple channels. Tons of London guide books and some great novels/mysteries. Information folder on how everything worked in the apartment and clear instructions for everything from trash disposal to where exactly to get more coffee pods for that great little espresson machine. Note: recommended driver also very nice, helpful and prompt. We can't wait to try one of the Paris Perfect apartments for our next big adventure!"

"Loved, loved, loved Queen's Gate!! I was there by myself and felt soooo comfortable. Very nicely appointed kitchen. Lovely big bathroom. Super comfy bed with lovely linens. Yes, it's a studio but the loft bedroom gives it more a one bedroom feel. Lots of tour books and resources on the bookshelf. Free wifi. Unbelievable neighborhood, just down from Kensington Gardens, about 10 minutes walk from Gloucester tube station (which is also on the Picadilly line with access to Heathrow). When I was planning this trip I looked at the rates I paid for the last couple of hotels I stayed at in London. Queen's Gate was no more expensive for so much more!! My dealings with Philippe and Madelyn were very professional and all was as advertised. These are people who obviously care about their business and their guests. I would jump at the chance to stay there again!!"

"We stayed for a wonderful two weeks in October at the Cornwall Apartment. It was the perfect location for a fantastic holiday. The neighbourhood is beautiful and very quiet. The garden was a treat to come home to after walking all day. We would sit and sip wine surrounded by the lovely greenery. The apartment was cozy and inviting. It was very well stocked for all our needs. The European appliances are fabulous! Madelyn and Phillipe were the perfect hosts and were always available if we needed anything. On our next trip to London, we would love to stay at the Cornwall again!"
Mary Nowak, Canada
"The Queensgate apartment was excellent - very compact but ideal for two people. It was very well equipped but not at all fussy and had everything we needed. The location was great, we were really happy with it, especially being able to drop into the V&A museum whenever we had an hour to spare."
Rosemary Cantwell, Australia
"We stayed in the Cornwall Apartment during the period of September 25 to October 3, 2010. Since this was the first time for us to rent an apartment instead of a hotel room, we were a little apprehensive but once we arrived we were very pleased with everything in the apartment. Philippe and Madelyn were very organized with instructions concerning the apartment, as well as suggested places to dine. With their help and the lovely apartment, we had our very best trip to London!

"Great apartment! Fabulous location! Everything was brilliant! Thanks for your hospitality (smiley face!)."
Steve B, United States
"This "Cornwall" apartment is amazing! The location couldn't be better - quiet,safe, friendly, convenient- it was spotlessly clean, a total and tasteful renovation with everything one could want. In addition we had our own beautiful private garden in which to enjoy tea or wine and dinner. We were welcomed with a basket of basic supplies (coffee, crackers, etc.) and a bottle of wine. This apartment has a very modern bathroom and kitchen and the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. Kensington High Street and Hyde Park are a 5 to 7 minute walk away. We also had a fantastic stay in Madelyn and Philippe's "Champagne" apartment in Paris through Paris Perfect). For each city, Madelyn has prepared a multi-page document of helpful hints that we found both useful and infallible. Groceries, pastries, and several excellent restaurants are within a 5 minute walk. We loved this apartment so much that we plan to return in the near future. Only next time we plan to stay for a few weeks instead of just one."
Don & Joyce, Canada
"LOVED every minute of it! The apartment and neighborhood were an important part of my stay. Left well rested and with fond memories; will return again and again."
Stacie T, USA
"What a beautiful apartment! We were delighted with the modern amenities, the private courtyard and the charming decor. The location was perfect for taking the underground, walking in the park and eating out. We were pleased with the little gift basket that made us feel so at home. I would stay there again in a heartbeat."
Shirley E, USA
"Arrived and met by Ed - what a great idea to have a 'greeter'. The Hornton is in a quiet haven - we love it!"
Christina M, Australia
"Your Cornwall apartment was the perfect place to stay in London. Thanks for creating such a delightful refuge!"
F. Worthington, USA
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful apartment. The location was ideal, in a very pleasant area of London, close to Kensington Gardens (great for joggers like us), and with wonderful restaurants a few minutes away. The apartment has absolutely all the conveniences of home. It is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and very quiet. We also enjoyed the use of the beautiful back garden. There is no question we would love to rent this property again. It's a jewel!"
Alain & Adele, Canada
"We loved the apartment. We especially loved the convenience to the tube stop (Gloucester Rd), three fantastic museums (V&A, Science Museum and Natural History) and the local restaurants and grocery stores."
Silu Narvekar, USA
"We have often rented apartments when staying in London. This is the only one yet that we would love to come back to. It was very clean, very comfortable - especially the wonderful huge bed -and had everything we needed. The apartment had top of the line furnishings and everything was deluxe. We couldn't recommend it more! What a treat!
Thanks so much Madelyn and Philippe."
Carol & Bryan F, Canada
"The apartment was really lovely. Luxurious and homely. Was very impressed with the modern and antique combo. And a helpful landlord too. Will definitely recommend."

"My name is Sheli Nan. I am a composer and pianist living in Berkeley, Ca. I recently stayed at the Cornwall apartment in Kensington, London with London Perfect. We were so happy with our accommodations. There was a lovely welcome basket, the apt was spacious, clean and totally user friendly. The decor was elegant. The street it is on is heavenly. The owners were gracious. I would stay there again in a heartbeat."
Sheli Nan, USA
"We had the most wonderful time at The Cornwall. The location was perfect and the flat was so charming! Everything was spotless and the attention to details says a lot about the owners who are so very welcoming and helpful.
The Cornwall is a very special place and the conservatory in the garden is utterly romantic."
"Dear Philippe, I just wanted to send this brief message to say it was a pleasure to finally meet you and have a bit of a conversation. We had a wonderful time in London and can honestly say it exceeded our expectations. I will also take a view of your new Paris apartment. Best Wishes for a break in the HEAT."
Richard, Patricia & Alanah
"My husband and I stayed in the Queen's Gate Studio apartment from May 30 to June 6, 2010. Getting there from Heathrow was very convenient and travelling around London on the tube was easy from the apartment. We found South Kensington to be a charming area and walked the area without worrying about security. The apartment itself had everything we needed and we would certainly stay there again and would recommend it to our friends."
Arlene Fitzgerald, Canada
"This is a tiny but charming studio/loft in a great location. It is elegantly furnished and comfy; way better than a hotel room, but not spacious. We really enjoyed our stay there."
