We first visited 40 winks for Mr Carter's enchanting Bedtime Story nights back in 2014 and were totally captivated by the event, the hotel, and the inimitable Mr C! Since that evening we have returned to the Bedtime Story events or the Saturday Salons at the hotel about 15 times with each visit being even more magical than the former.... More

Staying at 40 Winks is definitely a unique experience, and a very good one. Stepping there is like entering a strange yet familiar world, magnificently created by David Carter. Conversing with my host was a wonderful moment, he really made me feel at home and I will never forget the extraordinary time I spent here.

There’s only one minor, miniscule, microscopic thing wrong with this utterly remarkable BnB which lies slap bang in the middle of London’s Mile End Road in the city’s undeniably “happening, hip and revitalised” East End. “What’s that?” I hear you ask. Well, quite simply, when most people travel to London they are there to see the sights, explore the city,... More

Staying at 40 winks is a most intriguing experience and something you will not forget. David Carter is clearly a highly talented designer and has created some fascinating spaces within his home which he is willing to share. David is most welcoming and one feels as though one is staying at a slightly eccentric (in a good way) country house... More

I hesitated a little about what to write in this review, not because I had nothing to write about, but because I think my fellow guests at this amazing micro-hotel have done a great job describing the kind of experience you have at 40 Winks. But besides the out-of-this-world decoration, amazing warmth and unique experience you have staying here, there's... More

We stayed at 40winks for our wedding anniversary and we couldn´t have been at a more lovely, warm and welcoming place. It just felt like being at home every time we opened the front door (very early in the evening, since we weren´t able to stay away very long ;)). David is a great host, very kind and charming, who...

I want to write this review only after I recover from jetlag. What more can I say or add to all the great reviews written by many inspired travelers before me? David personifies 40 winks and the experience is very personal. The reception and introduction to the property and sharing of his beautiful space and experience is more than what... More

I chose 40 Winks as my accommodation while I was visiting London because of the incredible interior design of the home. Elegant wall papers, turkish rugs, and unique art at every turn keep your mind and heart filled with awe, but what one will quickly learn about 40Winks is that the beautiful rooms are just the backdrop and stage for...

What can I say .... 40 winks is not to be described as a hotel, or B&B or some other place to stay overnight. It is an experience of a unique kind. It seems like a mysterious house hiding a portal into "Otherworld" where you may choose your experience, or the experience chooses you. Every piece of the burlesque, victorian,... More
