"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!"
Bill and Carol Henderlight, Georgia, USA
"Great apartment! Fabulous location! Everything was brilliant! Thanks for your hospitality (smiley face!)."
Steve B, OR, 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, Oklahoma, USA
"Arrived and met by Ed - what a great idea to have a 'greeter'. The Hornton is in a quiet haven - we love it!"

"Your Cornwall apartment was the perfect place to stay in London. Thanks for creating such a delightful refuge!"
F. Worthington, South Caroline, 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, Toronto, 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."
Patsie O, Nigeria
"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, California, 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."
C.G., Florida, USA
"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, Ontario, 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."
Vicky Rideout, California, USA
"We stayed for a week at the Queens Gate apartment. It was exactly as depicted on the website, absolutely gorgeous and a wonderful location."
Steve & Chris Penglase, Australia
"We were delighted with the comfort, high quality, elegance and charm of The Cornwall. It was exactly as advertised and a treat to return to at the end of the day. We appreciated the thoughtful inclusion of unexpected arrival amenities, a bed that was supremely comfortable, and the ideal location in a quiet neighbourhood close to two underground stations and everything you might need. Madelyn and Philippe made the all things related to the renting of the Cornwall seem seamless and a pleasure."
Norma V, Canda
"I wanted to write and thank you for having such a great place for our family of 5. We just could not have been more pleased. The apartment is lovely. So clean and full of all the amenities and then some. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The location was great. We could do so much walking, jogging and all those good things to help with the appetite! We cooked in and we ate out. A good mixture of both. We saw all the major sights to see in London, took the tube, the red double decker bus, too. I was able to get in some shopping, too. I think we are definitely apartment people."
"My mother (75), Aunt (80) and I (49) had a terrific one week stay at the Queensgate Apartment in February 2010. The location was ideal - so close to beautiful Kensington Gardens, the V&A Museum, the Gloucester tube station, the Kensington High Street. We got to know the neighbourhood and felt 100% safe the entire time. We used Lushi's drivers on three occasions and were very impressed with Lushi and his staff. Very professional and knowledgeable. Tillie showed us into the apartment upon our arrival from King's Cross Station and walked me to the local deli to get provisions for our first night and morning. The little touches like the grocery cart, big umbrella, and great selection of guide books and DVDs are what sets this apartment apart. It truly felt like our home from the moment we arrived. It's a small flat but space is used very well and we had lots of room to hang and store our clothes and the three of us never felt crowded. The kitchen and bathroom have all the "mod cons" and the Victorian paintings on the ceiling are truly beautiful. Thank you for a wonderful experience in a magic city. I'd be pleased to recommend the Queensgate to anyone who wished to speak with me about my experience."
Joy Bauer, Canada
"Just a quick note of thanks after a very long trip home. The Cornwall flat was wonderful- perfect for the 3 of us! The neighborhood was so convenient to everything we did all week and had so many small local shops- it gave us a real feel for London! Staying at the flat was a great way to make our holiday just a little different. We can't wait to return!"
