Your accommodation is one of the most important aspects of your stay. Our qualified Welfare and Accommodation Officer is at hand to help you throughout.

Every student will tell you that accommodation can make their time in the UK from a good stay to an excellent one and we take great care to make sure that students are matched with the right family.

The best way to take advantage of your stay in England is by staying with a local host. This gives you the opportunity to improve your English and expose you to the life and culture of the country.

Our host families have welcomed students from all over the world and hosted with us for many years. If you do have any preferences for location or dietary requirements, please let us know and we will be able to find a family to suit your needs. While there may be other inlingua students staying with a host family during their stay, we do not place two students of the same mother tongue together.

All of our host families are either within walking distance or short bus ride from the school.


If you want to be more independent, we offer a wide range of self catering accommodation. The different options available are:

  • Serviced apartments/short term rented accommodation
  • Self-catering in a homestay

If you wish to take advantage of this type of accommodation then please note that this can take longer to arrange.


Although we strongly recommend host family accommodation to all our clients due to the value of developing your English socially, some people prefer to stay at one of the many hotels near the school. The school has a variety of hotels in close proximity.

Here are a few local hotels that we can recommend:

Guest House/Bed & Breakfast/Hostel/Serviced Apartments

Cheltenham has a wealth of other accommodation options such as Guest Houses, B&Bs and Hostels. If you would like this type of accommodation please ask us for a list of possible places to stay. If self-catering is not available for the dates of your stay then we can only offer host family accommodation with a half board arrangement. If you require self-catering, you should inform us well in advance of your course start date. It is possible for students on long term courses to change from homestay accommodation to self-catering.
