Memories to cherish

Queen Alexandra’s was the best home away from home for me, a young, and somewhat scared 16 year old. For three years, my home in London was with these amazing people. I will most definitely cherish all the memories and wonderful people that I met living/working here. 

There was also such an amazing selection of food on offer at dinner time; always vegetarian and healthy options along with more of a ‘typically normal’ dish to be served. My friends and I were particularly fond of the millionaires pudding and in fact I would still run all the way from South Kensington to make dinner after finishing late if it meant getting to taste some of that chocolate caramel heaven.

I miss having a morning greeting on the way out to school and having a welcome home smile, so yes, definitely a warm refuge!

A warm welcome

“QAH has a kind and welcoming community where girls feel welcome to join together to build friendships … in a city that can feel isolating at times, QAH is truly a home away from home”.

Queen Alexandra’s House is an oasis

“The prospect of moving to ‘The Big City’ is daunting. Finding Queen Alexandra’s House was just like coming across an oasis!

Apart from the location which is wonderful, it is a very happy and friendly place. It’s comforting to have a 24/7 manned reception and secure entry system. An extra bonus for me is living on the ‘Music Floor’, where I can practise in my room. Alternatively, I have the benefit of several practice rooms. My degree course is extremely busy and the in house catering saves me the worry of food shopping & cooking. It is lovely to unwind at the end of the day and chat over dinner with friends.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Queen Alexandra’s House.”
