Torquay - Home of Riviera English School

We always recommend staying in homestay (previously called host family) accommodation, not just for value for money, but also this will help you practise your English…

Many students return to the school, and ask for the same hosts.

Accommodation

Homestay Accommodation

All our homestay hosts are carefully chosen by our accommodation officer, who visits all hosts; checks with the relevant authorities are also made to ensure they are suitable to host students.

You can tell us specific needs, for example, if you don’t like dogs or you are a vegetarian. You will be met at the coach or train station by your hosts. Homestay hosts are normally in walking distance (5-30 minutes) of the school and all are within 30 minutes travel time. Bus passes are available for a cost of about £19 per week for unlimited local travel.*

The price includes breakfast and dinner Monday to Friday, and all meals at weekends. Homestay hosts will do light laundry and will provide towels and bedding.

*Junior/Teenager Summer Course students have full-board accommodation (with packed lunches). Bus passes are included and the maximum travel time is 30 minutes.
