  • Thank you so much for accommodating me at this difficult time I am very blessed to be able to stay at BISH. I love my room, its friendly residents, very sympathetic management and the remarkably beautiful neighbourhood.

  • I would want to appreciate all the help and support you guys offered me throughout this period of 1 year. You are the kindest people I have met in UK so far. If my next job would have been in Birmingham, I would have definitely extended my stay.

  • The two year stay at the Asbury has been an amazing journey that was full of memories, joys and emotions. Yes, time flies indeed! I do not have the words to express my gratitude to what you guys have done for us over the past couple of years. All I can say is that the whole BISH family has created so many beautiful memories that we will keep on rejoicing in the years to come for which I cannot thank enough.

  • I had a wonderful time here at Wesley International House. Everyone was very friendly and everything here is quite comfortable and homely. Would definitely recommend it to all my friends moving here. Good job.

  • It was my first time in the UK and am so glad I chose to stay at the Wesley house. Everyone at the house, the house-mates and staffs were all absolutely incredible. In those few months, we had become more like a family than friends it was quite heartbreaking when I had to leave. If and when I get a chance to visit the UK again I'll definitely be staying at the Wesley house. Thanks for making me feel at home and introducing me to amazing people.
