A small double room with a comfortable memory foam topped sofa bed capable of accommodating 2 people in the peaceful town of Twyford situated between Reading and Maidenhead.

Twyford train station is a 2 minute walk away which provides convenient access to Henley-on-Thames, Reading, Oxford and London.

My reviews are good but here's what my guests are mostly saying:
> More than 20 say it's "clean".
> More than 19 have said "comfortable/comfortable bed".
> More than 10 say "great location".

The space

I really want people to enjoy their stay and have their expectations met. Please do read the whole listing and use the secret passphrase when booking so I know that you have.

The bedding is soft brushed cotton sheets and duvet. Anti-allergy pillows and duvet are available so please request when booking.

The actual room doubles as my home office so depending on how busy I am with work will affect my ability to host. It is likely that I will need access to the room during the day for work so it is most suited to those that will be occupied elsewhere during the daylight hours and simply require rest in the evening and a night's sleep.

The wardrobe in the room is available for your use. It does contain some of my junk but there is space for a few items and I can easily make more space for heavier travellers.

Guest access

Front door key supplied. Use of the kitchen, bathroom and lounge.

Interaction with guests

I'm a friendly guy who is quite used to hosting guests and I'm happy to help in anyway I can.

Other things to note

Breakfast - some eat it; some don't.
With everyone's different expectations and tastes I've decided not to try to cover all the possibilities and keep the room price low.
There's no reason to go hungry with all the shops and cafes in the town.
Feel free to arrive with stuff that you want to refrigerate and make basic use of the kitchen facilities.
Coffee and tea is always available and complimentary.

The advantage of being so close to the train station also brings the disadvantage of some train noise.
The train line is concealed at the bottom of an embankment at the end of the garden so I feel I must mention that some train traffic will be heard if you're not used to it.

Please quote booking ref. #NICEPERSON77 for a reward when booking.

My place is a 2 level maisonette with access to my floor via a stairway. Unfortunately this means it may be unsuitable for some disabled guests.

Great stay at Mathews place in Twyford. He allowed us to use the kitchen, we enjoyed a bit of time in the afternoons in the back garden. This was a great location for us to stay while we were working in Wokingham looking for a flat.

Had a great couple of nights at Mathew's place, was a ideal location only minutes to the train and down onto the village. Had one of the best indian meals at a local restaurant. the flat was very clean but I found the futon a little hard for my liking. Mathew was a great host, very friendly and helpful.

Response from Matthew:
Thank you for the useful feedback Allan. I'm aware it's a little firm and talk about it briefly in the description but a foam topper is a very good idea. My only current idea is to place an air mattress under it but it's never been tested. A rubber shower mat is also a good idea. Thanks, Matt
