Hotels are everywhere in Britain, but they get booked up, and if you don't have much time, then you won't get much choice, especially in high season (School Holidays, Easter, July and August and Christmas)

Sometimes the best deals can be done at universities when the student accommodation is available for hire. These are usually two or three bedroom flats with kitchens and bathrooms. The flats sometimes have a maid service for cleaning and linen. Some shoots have found holiday villas for rent, which works well.

It really is important to get your accommodation sorted out early, as the later you leave it, the less chance there is of a deal. In Hotels you will be expected to pay per person, not per room, unless a special deal can be arranged. Phone calls, bar bills and room service can be expensive, so make sure the hotel knows that the individuals, not the company, must pay these costs.

London is very expensive all year round, so it may be a better idea from a cost point of view to put the crew up just outside the city where hotels can reduce the rate. akfilmservices have deals with various Hotels in London so let us know if you need somewhere to stay.If you know about accommodation near a wonderful location, e mail us at
