Accommodation

There is accommodation available on site in the form of a flat above the salon. It comprises of a comfortable lounge with a television, DVD player and also a radio/CD player, 1 bedroom, a shower room and toilet. The kitchen includes a fridge, microwave, electric 2 ring worktop hob, toaster and kettle.

The lounge and kitchen are shared by the other students in the morning before training starts if they arrive early, and at lunchtime, but the bedroom door and door to the toilet/shower room both lock therefore keeping these private and secure for your use only.

The cost for accommodation in the flat is £45/night and must be booked at the same time you book the course.
