The second time at 40wink after about a year it was even better than the first time. I had a chance to attend a very special event, a glamorous pyjama party dedicated to stories of the night with a very talented actress who involved all visitors in various stories of love, death, horror and comedy. If you enter 40wings is... More

My partner and I spent just one night in this enchanting place and whilst I wish we could've stayed longer, the magic of David's home had a huge impact on us even after this short time. We were looking for some escapism from the monotony of London life (we live in London) and I stumbled across this hidden gem. We... More

Fabulous amazing decor... stunning rooms, used a photoshoot.. Owner extremely friendly and helpful :) Gorgeous copper bath! Great location near the tube. If you like interiors, then this is definitely the place for you. The only gripe, as that there was not more sound insulation in the windows. But as a listed building very tricky to do, you are in...

Hi Sarah, Thanks for the kind review!!! We are always looking at ways to improve guest experiences, but, as you correctly point out, making changes to a three hundred year old listed house can be challenging. However, we have recently just upgraded the windows in the double room, incorporating special 'acoustic' glass to help reduce any street noise. Hopefully you... More

40 Winks is a pure gem of sheer echoes of childhood and all wisdoms from a by gone era with the foundation strongly placed in comparison to a some what version of punch and Judy on momentary pause suffocated with charm and endless tones of whispering enchantment.   Truly a delightful and very special wonder world of an adults Alice...

In June 2014 I spend three days at 40 Winks with David. Already when I booked a room, I expected to find a special place, but my expections were far exceeded. To dwell with David, is to enter as in a work of art an become acquainted with the artist. David is a very special Person, creativ, intelligent, warm an... More

This review is long, long. LONG overdue; to be honest, I have had trouble crafting the words to describe such a magical place - and I don't toss around the word "magical" often because I find it silly in most contexts, but it's the only way I can begin to describe 40 Winks and David Carter's truly genius command of...

It's the first time I am the only guest in any hotel ! In fact, in 40 winks, you could be almost the only one to enjoy the greatest part of this magical house. I felt like Alice in wonderland, surprised, sometimes intrigued, and inspired. In addition, David has a great sense of hospitality and loves creating high quality relations... More

This is a highly individual place close to a bus stop and two tube stations with good working wireless lan in your room. The welcome was a bit strange when you are asked if you are staying in the right place (especially after having payed in advance). The breakfast was basic continental and nothing to lift up your heart. Having... More

It is always a bit odd when someone writes an anonymous review several months after they visited, but while our reviewer may have found us 'peculiar and highly individual', this is exactly how we found him. Quite why he came to stay with us is a mystery... although judging from his comments it was possibly our proximity to public transport... More

David, I have sat down so many times to write a review on you and 40 Winks. I am quite visual, so words, especially written words, are very difficult for me to put down on paper. I wanted to write a review that would do you proud. I found it utterly impossible to do. Our nights stay was lovely to... More
