What our guests say about Beckenham
I would just like to say thank you to Ellie for a wonderful stay in Beckenham this week. Nothing was too much trouble for us and when we were looking for a nice pub/restaurant in the evening, Ellie's suggestion was perfect for our last evening. Our students were very happy with their host families and many had some in-depth conversations in the evening which i know they really appreciated.
