This was a wonderfully unique experience; one which I will never forget. Absolute hospitality, stunning interiors and a feast for the eyes. I stayed in the single room and enjoyed the delight of the top floor bathroom. Feeling like Cleopatra, I bathed surrounded by bronze leaf Chinese wallpaper as water tumbled out of the lion’s mouth into the cast iron... More

Even if I’m writing my review quite some time after I stayed at David Carter’s magical place ‘’40winks’’ it doesn’t mean that the memories of my stay have faded. In fact the opposite… I stayed for 3 nights during August and as I was traveling alone I was looking for a different place to stay. I had such a good... More

David Carter allows a spectacular dive into London city life, inviting you into his most unique house for an always too short stay. His hospitality is exceptional! Do not expect typical hotel. His recommendations for eating and going out are great.

As soon as David opened the door of 40 Winks, I knew we were in for an aesthetic treat. You are at once absorbed into a fantastical and glamorous home. We had a comfortable night, lovely linen and pillows. The bathroom is divine. David was very welcoming and guided us on where to explore and eat. This part of London... More

I've stayed here three times and it is now always where I stay when visiting London. It's difficult to put in words what makes the place special. As other people have mentioned, the interior design is aesthetically spectacular and stays with you. Also, David is a kind and welcoming host as well as a good conversationalist.

Stayed three nights in the smaller upstairs room, facing the backyard. Quiet and comfortable. David was very hospitable and helpful both while I was making the reservations months in advance and while I was there in his home. It was a pleasure chatting with him & sharing stories. The décor of this townhouse is really unique - as you can... More
