This is a great opportunity to stay in a private home in Edinburgh and have a taste of everyday British life.  We visit all our Homestays to check that they are clean, comfortable and welcoming.  Our hosts are very friendly and enjoy learning about other countries and cultures.

  • Enjoy breakfast and dinner with your hosts, eating together and chatting about life in the UK
  • Let them help you plan your stay – they will be able to recommend interesting places to visit while you are in Edinburgh and tell you about life in our city
  • Practise your English in a non-threatening situation – putting into practice the language you meet in the classroom

We will organise your Homestay for you – just let us know when you enrol for your course.  We will check then if you have any special requirements (pet allergies, dietary requirements, etc) so we can find the best Homestay for you.

The price for a Homestay is £295.00 per week plus a one-off £50.00 booking fee.


Hotels & B&Bs

There are many lovely hotels and bed & breakfasts around central Edinburgh.  They are usually the option for students who want a little more independence during their stay.  Students can book directly with the hotel or by using a hotel booking website.  We are happy to recommend places which are popular with our students and can help you organise this type of accommodation.


Self-Catering Apartments

There are many options for self-catering apartments in central Edinburgh as well and the accommodation you choose will depend on your budget. This is the perfect option if you want to combine your English study with a holiday and to bring family or friends with you.

If booking hotels, bed & breakfasts or self-catering accommodation in the summer months, we recommend as early a reservation as possible – Edinburgh is very popular place and accommodation gets full quickly!

Prices for hotels, bed & breakfasts and self-catering accommodation depend on the time of year and quality of the accommodation.
