"The Things they say"
Dear Nick and Warren, Thank you for making our recent
visit to London the best ever! We appreciated Warren's help, getting us to and
from the flat and especially your assistance in helping us host a tea party for
a multitude of relatives. We'll be back again! Sincerely, Jane, Joyce and Sophia
A. April 06 Balcombe St.
Hi Nick, Just wanted to let you know
how much we enjoyed the flat! It was so nice it was hard to leave it to
sightsee. And of course the location was extremely convenient. If we ever do a
similar trip we will check with you first about a flat. Thanks again, Amy W.
Mar06 Regent Square, Bloomsbury.
Nick, Many thanks for the flat. We thoroughly enjoyed it and know that
some of our friends will also. We hope to be back in Jan 07. PC Feb 06
Just a quick note to thank you and Warren for providing us with a great home
base for our fun London vacation. It's obvious that you take great pride in
your properties and in making your clients feel welcome.
It's always a gamble when you book things via the Internet but I think what
made us feel most comfortable was reading the detailed and down-to-earth
information on your website. The "other"rental companies--while I'm sure
very good businesses--just don't provide that kind of "personal touch."
We were happy when we booked with you in 2001 and we remain happy after our
latest visit. We hope to see you again soon but if we keep having children,
it may be longer than we'd like! My parents along with my sister (who stayed
with us last week) will be staying on the 1st floor in March. I'm sure
they'll be just as pleased with your service. Thanks again, Jim and
Jodi W. Feb 06
London is good, but your place made it so good, we loved to stay at
home. Regards- Irit and Avi E. Nov 05
Dear Warren, Thank you so much for everything ! The apartment
was exactly as we wanted....it was so close to all the stations and the
underground. The beds
were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we could ever need in the way of
utensils and appliances.
I was always happy and grateful with your quick email replies to any question I
posed to you. Thank you for that Warren .
We had a good trip home... mind you with travelling 20 hours straight with only
a 5 hour stopover in Japan we collapsed in a heap on arrival in
Brisbane at 8am. It took us over an hour and a half to get through customs at
this end. They are very thorough with checking the baggage and sniffer
dogs everywhere. Luckily they didn't find anything on the J's!!!
Once again Warren thanks so much for making our stay so much more enjoyable. We
would thoroughly recommend your apartments to all our friends when they
decide to visit London. Regards Annette J. Oct 05
On our last night in London, my 14-year old son said to me, "I've never bonded
like this to a place we've stayed in for a vacation before. I'm really going to
miss this apartment. Do you think if we return to London we can stay in this
same apartment again?" I thought you might like to know that your flat received
this rave review! Eleanor B. Aug 04
I was looking for an alternative to a hotel, and was
searching online for a short term apartment rental, when I came across Price
Apartments. two things struck me right away; It appeared that they had been
in business for quite a few years, and they weren't an anonymous
corporation. So I started emailing Nick Price to get more information.
From the first few emails, I knew my search was over. Mr. Price answered all
of my questions in a timely fashion. I sent him at least half a dozen
different messages, and could always expect a answer within 24 hours. We
worked together to find an apartment I would be comfortable with, which he
offered at a fair and reasonable price. I also opted for the airport
pickup, and everything was all set for our London arrival. It almost seemed
too easy, but I was still a little unsure of what to expect.
As soon as we left customs in Heathrow, we were met by Nick's son Warren,
who brought us straight to our apartment. On the car ride from the airport,
Warren gave us more information about the neighborhood we would be staying
in, and pointed out some of the necessary conveniences (super market,
internet cafe, local pub) which were all within a 2 minute walk. Any
remaining hesitations I had were squashed.
The apartment was exactly as advertised. The pictures and descriptions on
the website were 100% accurate. It was clean, comfortable, and totally what
we were looking for. I'm very pleased with my whole experience with Nick
Price apartments, and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone
interested in accommodation in London. Nick and Warren run a professional
service with a personal touch and they are always available for any
questions or requests. I can't wait to plan my next trip!!!
Greg B, Providence RI Jan 04
Thank you for the use of your Putney apartment for the last three weeks. We
had a wonderful holiday and really appreciated your most comfortable, well
appointed unit, in a convenient location and wonderful views of the Thames.
(With Don's interest in boats and having held a commercial pilots licence
you can imagine the views were perfect!)
This third visit to London left us with a much greater appreciation of city
life, and we will certainly recommend the advantages of apartment over hotel
We also appreciated being able to have Kim spend time with us, and cook her
a 'real' meal away from her crowded flat.
Thank you for your honest advertising, it was exactly as you portrayed it!
Very best wishes,
Jean and Don J. Jan 04
Dear Nick and Warren,
I am writing to thank you for all of your help in making our trip to London
a wonderful lifetime memory for my family. Your kind help in getting the
airport pick-up was such a relief and being met by Warren at the flat made
us feel so welcome. I truly cannot say enough about how happy we were at 31
Balcombe Street. The flat surpassed my expectations. It could not have been
more perfect for our family: we found the flat to be warm, cozy, and
comfortable and I appreciated the thoughtful attention to the decor. It gave
the girls room to stretch out in the evening and do their homework, talk,
write in their journals and play. We used the kitchen every day; it was well
outfitted and met all of our needs for breakfasts and evening snacks.
After a long day of sightseeing, or a late night out to a play, we so
appreciated the short walk from Marylebone to the flat. I found the
neighborhood to be lovely and I felt safe; I liked walking to the market in
the morning and found a number of favorite shops. The street was also so
quiet and this is such a luxury in London.
Please know that I will be passing on your name to several friends who will
be visiting London this summer as well as my relatives who return to England
for visits on a regular basis. I also will go on the travel website I used
for research to sing your praises.
I have a few housekeeping details. I first wanted to thank you for the mid
week clean-up. I did not know it was scheduled, but it was a nice surprise
to come home to on Monday. I apologize for the mess in my nieces' room;
their teenage habits of dropping anything on the floor must have made it
hard to pick up. I trust you found the second set of keys; I had both of
them on the table and then in the last minute rush one pair got moved. Let
me know if you don't have them. We used the phone for 3 brief local calls;
let me know how much they are when the bill comes in. My three nieces used
it fairly often to call California and talk to their parents; I used an MCI
calling card. I am assuming there won't be local charges for this, but
please let me know if I owe you local charges for these calls.
Thank you again for all of your kind help and your lovely flat. Warmly,
Julie L. Nov 03
Thanks again for your accommodations. The place was great. And I hope to see
you next year sometime. There were some minutes on the telephone and I
assume you will bill those to my credit card.
Regards, John C. Nov 03
Cheers, Nick...wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed staying
in No. 13 at Dalmeny Court. Loved the "feel" of the flat; it was quite
homey and very comfortable. I have to share a story about the stay there:
one afternoon I was taking a bit of a nap when I heard an older man say
through the door, "have you just used the loo?" I went to the door and said
"no, I haven't." Soon after I hear this man and another man talking
somewhat animatedly in the hall. Turns out that the man was really asking,
"have you just used the lift?" He lives on the top floor and had had to
walk up four flights of stairs to discover that someone on our floor had
left the lift unclosed. The young man he was talking to was the culprit.
Just a bit of "flat humor." Regards, Donna M
Well we are back in South Africa and this is
just a short note to thank you and Michael da Sancha for having made our
holiday in London such a wonderful success.
I have to admit I was very nervous about the
accommodation as it was done online, but I was pleasantly surprised to find
such a lovely apartment. (Notting Hill) It was close to everything and
unlike here where we live the bus service was great. Your directions
were on the mark and it made it very easy to find.
We had a lovely time in London and as the weather
was so great it made it perfect. We were all expecting the weather to
have changed when we arrived but it stayed magnificent the entire month
we were in Britian, even Scotland although not as hot as England.
Once again thank you and I will definitely
recommend your company to anyone here in South Africa who is looking for
accommodation in London. My mother, brother
& sister-in-law have asked that I extend their thanks as well.
Heather M. Aug 03
Just a belated thank you for thr nice holiday we were able to spend using your
apartment. Warren was helpful on ther few occasions we had to revert to him for
help. You can rest asured that if we come to London again in the not too
distant future we will avail ourselves of your facilities. In addition, if we
know of anybody here who could be interested in this type of holiday we will not
hesitate in recommending them to contact you. Sorry we did not get the chance to
meet you personally, but hopefull;y the next time.
Malcolm K. Jul 03
It's been a bit hectic since we got back (not to mention me having to cope with
reaching my half centaury!) but I just wanted to let you how much we had enjoyed
our stay at Highbury Fields. The flat was wonderful - I hope we'll get a chance
to spend some time there again soon. Many thanks, Rosemary M. July 2003
Just wanted to drop you a quick
note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at the Covent Garden flat.
It was very nice. The flat was clean, comfortable, and it had everything we
needed, we felt safe there, and we just generally felt at home. It was also
fun getting to explore a new neighborhood this trip. I knew lodging would
not be an issue & would be one less thing to worry about -- by using your
service. Thanks again. I'll definitely be in touch the next time I plan a
trip to London. - Carey P. Jun 03
I just wanted to let you know that we found The
Covent garden flat to be a very pretty and comfortable spot. We had a
really wonderful time in London.
Thanks for your help in organizing the rental.
& Don R. may 2003
We have returned to the US and recovered from the all the time changes.
Not only did we get to experience the moving forward of the clocks in the UK
when we were there, we arrived back home in time to participate in the annual
ritual here as well.
We had a wonderful time on our vacation to London. The flat in
Bermondsey is really very nice, and provides a beautiful view of the Tower
Bridge. Our family was most comfortable there...with the exception of
having to walk up and down the 6 flights of stairs. The lift was
out....taking the luggage down was quite a feat! The neighborhood is
quiet, pleasant, and safe. We will be contacting you again in the near
future to rent the flat again. It is a perfect base for launching busy
vacation days in London.
Thank you to Warren as well for all his assistance. You both were
considerate, and always answered my never ending questions with useful
Should you desire to use us for a reference, please feel free.
Dr. and Mrs. Michael P. H. April 2003
I expect this message will get to you through your father, but I just wanted
to let you know how pleased we ewere with the way everything went with our
rentals last week. Our colleagues were pleased with their flat and Barbara and
I continue our attachment for the top floor, in spite of the last part of the
climb. As for useful information, we found the Heathrow Express train to be a
marvelous way to get back and forth, and well worth the cost. In fact, on the
trip out we were able to check our bags and get our boarding passes at
Paddington, thus avoiding the delays and long lines at Heathrow. I think you
should recommend it to your customers.
Thanks again for everything. Until the next time.
Donald S. mar 2003
Dear Nick and Warren:
Thank you so much for your hospitality and use of the Balcombe St.
apartment. It is a great location and all of us enjoyed our stay.
We look forward to staying with you again.
Chris and Susan C. Nov 2002
Thank you for a very pleasant stay at 48a. In case you want to use me as a
reference I would have no hesitation recommending this immaculately-kept studio
to anyone wanting a comfortable and convenient place in Highbury.
- Max B Nov 2002
Warren, We thoroughly enjoyed the Bermondsey apartment.
Incredible area, and we actually got to be recognized by the staff at the
Underground station, and the local shops. Thanks for all your assistance. I will
recommend your company to any other Canadians traveling to
London, and rest assured that for my next trip to the UK, I will contact you
first for a place to stay! Best wishes, Trudy B. July/Aug
Dear Mr. Price, I would like to thank you &
your organisation for providing us with such a convenient accomodation during
our stay in London. Apartment No. 18 at Bray House is very well equipped,
comfortable, nicely looked after, oustandingly located (either for strolls in
Green Park of to get the tube in Picadilly Circus), and in a safe area. Needless
is to say that it has been a key element to an unforgettable vacation in London.
Please transmit our thanks also to your father, to Ms. May and to Robbie, the
cleaning lady. It has also been a pleasure dealing with you. Yours sinceresly, Mauro V M St James Aug 2002
Mr Price - Here are the flat keys and the balance of the
phone bill. We had a lovely time, the flat is perfect for a family. Charles and
Elizabeth D Oct 2001 (31 Ground floor)
Regent Square:- I just wanted to tell you how much my
daughter, Sandra K, my grandson, Drew K and I enjoyed our recent stay in your
flat. We have stayed in a number of
self-catering places in the U. K. and your flat was by far the best, I am afraid
that you have set the bar so high that we may never find its equal! Jack R. N.
Hi Nick - just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful
stay at the flat in London. The flat was spacious, clean and very comfortable.
An added bonus was that it was very well situated, being close to stores and the
Underground. I honestly think a flat is the only way to travel when you have 2
young adults, 1 teenage boy, and 1 middle-aged woman (me) struggling to keep up
with them! It was really nice to come "home" after a busy day to a
place where we could all find our own personal corners and not get in each
other's hair! Doing that in a hotel would have been difficult at best. Hope we
left the place in good condition for you. Give my regards to Patrick for his
excellent transportation. Thanks again for the lovely flat. Hope to be back
soon. Alice W Mar 2001
Nick- I am sorry that it has taken me so long to send you this
e-mail but returning from vacation is always very hectic. My entire family
thoroughly enjoyed staying at your apartments last February. They were spacious,
comfortable and so convenient. Warren greeted us warmly and was always available
if we had questions. Staying with you made our vacation a wonderful experience.
My mother had a great 75th birthday and we had the space and ambience to enjoy
each other. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Sincerely, Marcie A. Feb
Dear Nick, The accommodation was wonderful as usual, the
students, Janice and I had a wonderful time during our stay. Thanks again, Leo
& Janice F Dec 2000
Dear Nick -
The flat was terrific! Great location and perfect for the four of us. We
thoroughly enjoyed our week in London [despite the surprisingly cold weather! We
are fairly used to that!] Hope you found everyting in good order. We
would have swept up a bit but there was no broom. Thanks for everything! I hope
we can rent from you again sometime! Jeanne P Dec 2000
We returned to the USA yesterday (Friday) after a very nice time in Florence and
Rome. This brief note is to thank you and Freddie for a wonderful stay in
London. We had a terrific time. The apartment was very nice, Freddie a big
help and the location is excellent. If you ever need a recommendation, please
feel free to use us. We hope to return in 2001. Thanks again. JohnS Oct 2000
Dear Nick - Now that I'm back in Mobile and my Cinderella's coach has turned
back into a pumpkin (I always feel this way when a trip is over), I wanted to
write to thank you for making my visit to London so enjoyable. It was grand to
be met and returned to the airport, and the apartment was very comfortable. I've
always stayed in Pimlico, and this location was so much more convenient to so
many underground lines - which we used extensively! Your web page was very
honest - my flat was simple, comfortable, and most of all, CLEAN. And Balcombe
Street is so quiet. Carol B. Oct 2000
Dear Nick, very many thanks for your so
kind support, what you gave us in time of our visit to London! We are very happy
from London, from X-mas celebration, from staying in your flat! Wish you and
your family very happy New Year,
My wife and I recently rented John Odea's Dewsbury Ct. flat for three plus weeks
and found it to be all it was advertised. The flat was clean and very well
located. We feel that we received very good value for our money and would have
no hesitantly to rent the flat again should the opportunity arise. Thanks for
including it on your very good web site.
Harold H. Jan 2000
look for our next visits, Vladimir and Valentina K Jan 2000
Nick, Thanks so much for the use of your apartment! My stay in this wonderful
city was great. This location to store my things was so convenient to everything
I wanted to see and do!
I know Iíll be back to visit-you can expect a call from me! Mechiel L, Jan 99
Dear Mr. Price:
This is just a short note to say thank you for our accommodation at King Edward
Mansions. The location of the flat was perfect and the flat itself was just
right for our family. Also please thank Michael de Sancha for the ride from
Gatwick to the flat. We enjoyed visiting with him. All in all, we thoroughly
enjoyed our trip to London for Christmas and hope to return soon. Again, thanks.
Sincerely, Charles B. Dec98
We thoroughly enjoyed "our" London flat. Itís cozy, comfortable,
clean Quiet and perfectly located to get us where we want to go. Thanks for
making our holiday so much more enjoyable than it would have been cramped into a
2 very expensive hotel rooms! Iíll be back soon! Thanks again, Carol H, May 98
Thanks for all that you did to help make our trip to London very enjoyable. We
found the apartment very pleasant and wonderfully convenient. Our only real
problem was that the stay was too short. We will certainly look forward to our
next trip to London and to our next stay in the Price Apartments.
Cordially, Phil H, March 98
Just a quick note to say thanks for the work you did in arranging our Dalmeny
Court apartment and ride from the airport.
We had a perfect holiday and really enjoyed the great location and comfortable
accommodations. When it's time to return to London, I won't do so without
contacting Price Apartments first!
Sincerely,-Steven B, March 98
We just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our visit to London. It
was our first time there, but it surely won't be the last.
Your flat was just lovely, and you made us feel like at home. We told
all our friends, and you should hear about some of them in the future.
Gabriel K & Family Jan 98
We loved the flat. It was perfect for our needs. It was
clean and spacious and the neighborhood was very
nice. It was convenient to everything. Our friends from
Bristol were very impressed with the Spode china.
Tea tastes better in a Spode pot.
Ann L Feb 98
Nick!!!! Happy 1998. I am just now getting a chance to write and say how
delighted we were with the flat. It was perfect. In fact, if I had gone
ahead to London to scout the
territory, I couldn't have discovered anything any better. We will
definitely refer anyone to you for an extended stay or to Valerie for a
shorter visit. And speaking of Valerie, please relay our thanks to her.
Let her know that we had our anniversary dinner at The English Garden and
enjoyed it very much.
Once again, thank you so much. Please, feel free to use us for a reference.
Carol and Don R December 97
Hello there Nick!
We just wanted to tell you how much fun we had in London in December and how we
enjoyed staying at your apartment on Balcombe Street!
You were such a nice and courteous host. It was so thoughtful of you to have
given us a Christmas card as well. London and your Balcombe Street apartment
will always have a special place in our travel memories.
Sincerely, Douglas and Deborah A, Dec 97
Dear Nick Price,
We moved in and decided to be Londoners for a month (w/o worrying about making
a living. Your place in its delightful, safe, quiet neighborhood was all we
for and more. The proximity to transportation, pubs and food makes your place
ideal for Americans looking for a bit of England.
Thank you , Jim J Dec 97
Thanks for everything. The flat was great Ė very comfortable and nice and
centrally located. Sincerely, Marguerite C Sep 97
Dear Mr. Price,
Your flat has been most comfortable. It's clean, convenient & has made our
visit far more than it would have been had we rented a hotel room. We've taken a
brochure as we fully intend to recommend your flats to our travelling friends.
We thank you again. Most sincerely
Carl & Roberta B June 96
We've really enjoyed our stay, the flat is perfect.
Dale & Lisa W May 96
I enjoyed very much staying in your flat - truly began to feel like home!
Craig H April 96
Dear Mr. Price,
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The flat met and in many cases
exceeded our expectations. I will be sure to recommend it to anyone I know,
travelling to London.
Sincerely, Donnie E April 96
Thanks again Nick, we enjoyed staying here.
Sue & David L April 96
Nicholas, Thanks much for the apartment -- It worked out just fine! I'll
surely pass on to friends your name and number! Gary W June 95
Thanks - It was great!
The P's May 95
Thank you! It has been really pleasant here, and you've made it cosy and
comfortable. We look forward to staying here again soon.
Sid and Bob W, Apr 95, Ferndale, Wa.
-----We will probably become annual visitors to the UK & would hope we could
return to the Price flats for those visits. We have mentioned your flats to a
number of friends & believe one or two have already stayed there.
Sincerely, Art & Phoebe G, Christmas 94, Sacremento, Ca.
