Das Houghton Place is wirklich ein ganz besonderes Guest-House. Die Gastgeber Sam und Jen stehen mit Rat und Tat zur Seite und wir hatten viele tolle Gespräche bei einem Gläschen Wein. Es ist genau dieser persönliche Touch, den ich außergewöhnlich fand. Das Interiour und Licht Design der Räume ist fantastisch. Und das jederzeit Cookies und Tee-Beutel im Zimmer gab, war ein großes Plus. It's the little things that count! Also ich werde auf jeden Fall zurück kommen, die Gastfreundschaft und das persönliche Erlebnis waren einfach fantastisch.
