Another House Added to our Self Catering Group

As our self catering houses are so popular we have now extended our portfolio and have added another house to the list.  As you can see from the photos below, comfort and style are just as important to us as our student's independence.  If you are interested in staying in one of our self catering houses contact the accommodation manager or click here for more information.

Charles Dickens Unveiled In Portsmouth

202 years after the death of Charles Dickens, Portsmouth, his city of birth, has erected a statue, that cost around £140,00, to the great novelist on what would have been his birthday (today 7th February).
With 40 of his descendants at the unveiling, and many interested onlookers, it was quite a sight on this grey Portsmouth day. Along with the onlookers were people dressed in the clothes of the time riding penny farthing bicycles. The statue stands in Guildhall square, which is overlooked by the statue of Queen Victoria.
The ceremony was televised on a large screen for those who weren't able to see.

We couldn't be more delighted to share the news of our former Marketing Director's hotel's award!
Allan Gray (who with his brother founded LSI) runs G Boutique, a wonderful boutique hotel in Southsea, that many of our students and agents have enjoyed staying at. Last year the hotel appeared on the TV programme 'Four in a Bed' and came first in the show winning their award (read more here).  Now they have been voted winners of the prestigious 'Simply The Guest' award from  For a hotel that has been open less than two years - that is an amazing success.
