About Us

About UKguests

At UKguests, we provide London homestay accommodation to overseas students and other visitors, and we are committed to offering our guests a first-class homestay accommodation service. Through much research and our personal experience of hosting international students, we are aware of the needs and preferences of students who come to London to study, and understand the importance of their homestay environment.

We take great care when placing our guests with our British hosts, who love to share their culture and home with their overseas guests. We endeavour to provide a service to students/visitors that is second to none. This is accomplished by making sure that we only select homestay accommodation with the best standards and we adhere to British Council guidelines.

Here at UKguests we regard accommodation as being the single most important factor for our international guests during their stay in London. We believe in the old saying: 'You never get a second chance to make a first impression.' Therefore, UKguests are committed to getting it right by providing our customers with the best service at all times.

Our Team

Mary (Managing Director)

Mary has had over 10 years' experience of hosting international students and other visitors in her home. As a mother herself, she understands the needs and concerns of parents who want to ensure that their children are placed in a safe, caring and good-quality environment. As a result of her passion, enthusiasm and knowledge gained through hosting, Mary formed UKguests in 2005.

Mary loves meeting new people from around the world and learning about their cultures. She has a keen interest in sports and exploring the wonderful things London has to offer.

Chanel (General Manager)

Chanel has several years' experience in the accounting, finance and customer service industry. She holds a bachelor's degree in Accounting and Finance from the University of East London. She loves interior design and cooking foods from around the world. Chanel is also well travelled and has experienced staying with a number of homestay hosts abroad herself. She too hosts international students in her home. Her experience with international students both in the UK and overseas means she is well placed to understand the importance of a quality homestay environment.

Anh (Accommodation Officer)

Anh was born in England and comes from a Vietnamese background. He has very strong IT and customer service skills and is responsible for the accommodation at UKguests. Anh has a passion for stunt biking and music festivals.

All of our staff have a wealth of experience with international students, and collectively we speak a number of languages including Spanish, French, Vietnamese and of course English. We continuously work together to improve our service delivery to our international clients and homestay hosts by focusing on their specific and individual needs.


I think that it is a good idea that international students live in a British family when they come to England. In this way, students can learn English more easily and practise it all the time.
