"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 H, USA
"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, 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."
Moore Family, Canada
"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, 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, 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."
Jennifer and Gary, Canada
"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!!"
Melissa, United States
"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!
