From Christie Sharpe It was a real treat staying at 40 winks! My mum who had been extremely pleased with her last visit, introduced me to David Carters home of wonder! Stepping off the busy street of Mile End Road into the home of Mr carter was rather magical, greeted in a dark sensual hallway I was already intrigued by... More

Truly one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed. Every room exhibits the charm and taste of the owner, David Carter. A typical hotel, no matter how lovely, is often quite impersonal. 40 Winks provides the warmth and attention normally given to a guest staying at a private residence. On a final note- the bathroom is sublimely decadent... More

Well well well, What can I say about 10 Winks. My girl friend and I stayed at 40Winks for her birthday. 40 Winks is very well-known in the fashion industry and many others, so we were very lucky to be able to find a vacancy at David's place the night of her birthday. The stay made her birthday more special... More

We were lucky, to make a reservation at 40 Winks and had a realy great weekend in London. David Carter created a very unique and lovely place. He is a very friendly host, who cares about his guests. He recommended us beautiful markets, restaurants and cafes. 40 Winks was the perfect place to be close to the hip East end... More

Staying at 40 Winks is an enormous treat! First of all, I felt very fortunate that there was an opening; I have tried to make a reservation on more than one occasion. The wait was so worth it. Staying at 40 Winks was a magical experience that mesmerized me from when I first rang the doorbell of this beautiful Queen... More

40 Winks is an experience first and then an outstanding boutique hotel. David Carter, an old style gentleman and a visionary interior designer, will lead you through his realm in a dreamlike atmosphere. Everything at 40 Winks is inspired and obeys to a vision, besides rooms are superbly furnished, cosy and clean. It really feels your home away from home.... More

We had a lovely stay at 40 Winks. Mr David Carter is a very good host and was very helpful and generous with tips about antiques and markets. The house is an experience and well worth the travel! Nina and Mikael

We were so thrilled when there was an opening at the 40 Wink. David was the most gracious host and this home is as stated in so many other reviews. Stunning. Masterful. Refined. Tremendous attention to detail. The guest rooms are on the second level, we stayed in the double bedroom, and there is also a single bedroom, both beautiful.... More

If you intend to be a guest at 40 Winks be prepared for a totally different experience from any place you have ever stayed at. While, yes it is a hotel in name, that is not what it feels like – and that is a compliment because it is far from sterile and anonymous. In fact it is actually difficult... More
