Boreland Lodge Hotel

We're a small hotel just North of Edinburgh. You can get to Edinburgh just 30mins on the train. Volunteers get their own private room with an ensuite or share with another Volunteer we're all like family. We're experienced hosts and are always welcoming volunteers with open arms!

We have 4 staff members here: John and Josie ,Greg and shelbie who are all Scottish. We only speak English (with a very Scottish accent )and try to encourage only English to be spoken whilst on duty. Volunteers are treated with patience and respect. Here you'll be able to improve your English, have lots of free study time, and gain good experience to put on your CV. During your time off you can enjoy the area, discover Edinburgh and travel around Scotland.We are happt to help and support you.

The experience was incredible. All the staff working in the hotel are very friendly, they explained our tasks very kindly and we felt very comfortable with them. They lent us bicycles to ride around the place (which is beautiful!!!). We loved our stay at the hotel.

The experience was fantastic, the place where the hotel is located is beautiful, they gave us bicycles to ride which was great to get to know the area. All the people who work at the hotel were very kind to us, they taught us many things and we will surely keep in touch with them. We felt very comfortable and would come back without any doubt :)

This was my first volunteering and I'm so happy that I had Sav and all the people in Boreland Lodge to help me. Since day one they all made everything to make me fell at home and happy. Sav is more than a host, she's a friend I've gained for life. Thanks for everything and be sure I'll be back to check on you guys. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙🤍

Hi Sav, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful opportunity to meet you all, it was an amazing experience and I will never forget it. In the future I am thinking of coming back, but let's talk about it. The Boreland is a great. The location itself is pretty quiet but gives you easy access to Edinburgh and surrounding. The tasks themselves are simple and they try to schedule around your commitments if you work or study. The staff have treated me super well and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to volunteer here.

Highly recommended!

Thank you very much for everything!
