Do you have any testimonials from previous schools we can include?

Thank you again for looking after our group; Brakenfield School last week. While I have not yet heard back from the group leader, I hope they had a welcoming and comfortable stay with you.

In fact, just some feedback I did receive during the week was that the staff were excellent, as were the facilities and food.

Thanks again and if you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to put your thoughts into an email to me.

With kind regards, Dan, Inspiring Learning.

Scottish Volleyball was delighted with the facilities and accommodation available to our International Athletes during their stay in April 2016. Safestay was a valuable partner for this event providing a great service at a fantastic rate during the European Under 19 Women’s Volleyball Championship.

We received lots of feedback from the players and staff who have commented the accommodation further enhanced their experience while in Edinburgh.

Regards, Martyn Johnstone, Competitions and Performance Officer, Scottish Volleyball Association
