What Our Guests Say

Stephanie house is a dream. Located in a quiet mews with friendly neighbours. The house itself is beautifully presented, clean and has all you could possibly want for a nice long or short break. About fifteen minutes into central London via the district line and all round great value to stay in such a luxurious house. The Underthedoormat team were also great. We were greeted upon arrival and they were just a phonecall away to answer any questions — lovely people. I’d highly recommend anyone to stay here. It’s essentially a five star hotel.

The UnderTheDoormat team were excellent hosts, turning a lovely privately owned flat into a well-serviced accommodation. We know the area well, and the home’s proximity to the Thames, Richmond shopping, trains to the city, and Heathrow airport are hard to beat. The best part of our stay was that the owners have a toddler the same age as ours, and they were kind enough to let us use their crib and toys, making our daughter feel right at home. She slept through the night the whole stay!
