    Alessia - Holland Park, 1 week ago
  • "Nelly is a very nice, polite and professional cleaner. She arrived on time and did everything within the two hour slot. Perfect service for me. My only minus point goes to the company as one can't tip online after 23h on the day of the clean. That's unfair for the cleaners if you don't know about it or don't have time to do instantly. I wouldn't mind a second tipping bill."
