Autumn in the city

Every year, once the clocks are turned back, we are reminded of how beautiful autumn mornings in the city are. When first leaving the house and encountering the crisp air and the sun shining through bare branches and reflecting off red brick we are filled with the urge to wrap up warm and embrace the cold day.  

The autumn evening in the city in contrast can often leave us less than excited to explore and instead we crave a warm and comfortable home. We want an easy and quick route home. We take solace in the knowledge we are living in a safe area close by to nice restaurants and good coffee.

Well aware of the needs and wants of busy professionals, staying away from home for work, often with little knowledge of London, Cityhomestay ensure that all our flats and homestays are as best suited as they can be to their guests. Whether it’s a desk in your room, or access to a television, close proximity to your work, or to an area filled with nice places to eat and drink we will do our best to provide a base in London to enjoy the city in Autumn. So when leaving work at 5 o’clock, disappointed to see the dark already setting in, you are heading to somewhere that feels like home.

What did we do before computers?

What did people do before computers? Well here at Doctor in the House we survived for 30 years with just good old fashioned word-of-mouth. That was all very well for then but we are now proud to say we are enjoying the benefits of our new website and up to date search engines and booking systems. Designed with our clients in mind, we can now ensure that we are finding and selecting the perfect places for each client dependant on each individual’s needs.

We may be embracing new technology but our old fashioned values remain at the heart of Doctor in the House and Cityhomestay.

We still personally visit each one of our flats and homestays, value the long-lasting relationships that we develop with each of our hosts, and the way in which this enables us to match a prospective Guest with the right accommodation.

Our years of experience providing travelling professionals with homes away from home is what really sets us apart, though now we’ve introduced the help of technology, we wouldn’t want to go back to life without it!

Three months on at Cityhomestay

It’s been a busy three months since we launched Cityhomestay. We’ve got a brand new website and have been having a lovely time filling our books with beautiful flats and homestays in London.

With plenty of hosts now all over the city we are in the perfect position to be providing our clientele of travelling professionals with a choice of comfortable and convenient accommodations for them to treat as home while they work.

How it all started

Around 32 years an accommodation agency for Clinicians was started called Doctor in the House. From small beginnings our organisation has grown, built on our valued reputation and personal recommendations. In September 2016 we will launch our sister company Cityhomestay, providing accommodation for professionals. This blog is about our journey to establish our new venture and provide excellent accommodation for 'Professionals in London'. Wish us luck.
