Me and my girlfriend recently spent a night at 40 Winks and found it to be one of the highlights of our trip to London. The room was a special blend of fascinating aesthetic and luxurious comfort, with the bathroom looking even better than the pictures would suggest. David was a delightful host and a fount of information about London... More

I had read an article on unusual places to stay and noticed 40 Winks. It had been on my "to do list" for ages and I managed to book a nights stay with my daughter. This micro hotel is a magical place to step into. Like a secret world, far removed from the time we live in now. I would... More

From the moment the owner David Carter opens the door, you enter into a wonderland of exquisite sights as each room unfolds whilst being led to your room. The guest bedrooms are located at the top of this elegant house, ours was a sunny room, beautifully designed with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. We spent two... More

We spent 3 nights in the double room at 40 winks and it is without a doubt, the most magical hotel you could find within London... and further afield I'm sure! As the website advises, there are no flash TV's, room service or spa treatments - if that's what you're after, don't stay here. If you want a luxurious atmosphere... More

I spent six days at 40Winks early this summer. In short: WOW. Mr. Carter, is a natural host with a fascinating taste for details. His genuine interest in people combined with his creative lifestyle create an unique and inspiring atmosphere. The peaceful victorian house feels dreamy and homely all at once. The rooms are just perfect sized and carefully furnished.... More

When you look at the website of 40 Winks, you can tell that it is no ordinary place to stay. I have been to London many times before but decided that this time I wanted somewhere more interesting than your average run of the mill hotel. This is something that 40 Winks certainly caters for. As soon as I stepped... More

Hi Martha, Thanks for the very kind review!!! On the ironing front, I think I did explain that we use a laundry service, who collect and deliver back twice a week. If you had been staying more than a couple of days with us, we could easily have sorted something out for you. We use Blossom and Brown, who do... More
