Unfortunately we didn't meet Sophia but her daughter Farrah met us and gave us the key and showed us in. The room shown for 4 is little more than the front of the lounge room partitioned off with only just enough space for 2 bunk beds! We found this not enough room to fit us and …

Response from Sophia:
Hi Reed Thanks for your comment. I live in London. London is make up of six zones. I live in zone 4. Sorry, the travel was lengthy due to the renovation work at London Bridge which caused our train station to be either closed or trains to be delayed. This work was to improve the service in the New Year. Please note that the service time between Grove Park and London Bridge is 12-14 minutes. Once again I am sorry that you had to experience this delay during the holidays. All the best to you and your friends. Sophia

I’m not perfect. I love GOD and peace. I am strong and very positive. I love life, people, music and good food. I am not afraid to do something everyone else thinks is stupid.
