I have used SpareRoom a number of times and have found the service exceptional and highly successful.


I have been very satisfied with web site. My first lodger stayed longer than 2 years. I got my second lodger within a week of my ad.


Brilliant - one of the best things I've done. Just found my second Mon to Fri lodger.
