Room Details

Our Homestay Plus option is available in Single rooms only and has a private or en-suite bathroom. A comfortable and simply furnished room contains a desk and storage space for your clothes. Bed linen is provided by the host. Your host will clean your room, but you should keep it neat and tidy too by making your own bed and putting your clothes away. 

You can choose between half-board (breakfast and evening meal included daily) or breakfast only (breakfast daily). Cooking facilities are not included and access to these is at the host's discretion. 

Breakfast is not usually cooked. It is often toast and marmalade, cereal, fruit juice and tea or coffee. Dinner is the main meal of the day and should include meat, fish or poultry unless you have asked in your application form for vegetarian meals. Special dietary requirements are available on request. Please let us know at the time of booking.


Students should be able to do one washing machine load of laundry per week. Please discuss with your host whether you should do it yourself in their machine or whether they will do it for you.

Please ask your host if they will allow you to use the telephone.
