I have loved every minute of being here, it makes leaving home less of an awful experience because you feel welcomed and relaxed here, there’s a lovely team who look after you and I feel very safe as there is always a security guard and they too are very friendly. The location is perfect as there are three different supermarkets within close walking distance and the beach is very close too! I’ve been very happy here for my first year!

I ended up being transferred to Home Park but I wish I had picked it from the start. in a strange way, the name is oddly correct as Home Park really felt like a home away from home. the people I met here shaped me into who I am today and because of the environment plus how chill the building is on a whole, it's easy to make a spark a connection with anyone in this place. the staff really look out for you to giving out any help or advice they can or they'll even come out and have a smoke with you so you can have a chat. you'll normally see Natalie on the front desk giving everyone smiles if you're lucky (shes pretty good at that).

Staying at Home Park was a great decision for me. At first I was sceptical because I was worried about leaving everything I knew, but Home Parks team made the stay amazing. Lovely rooms with lovely staff members that make walking in and around the building feel like home. Always greeted when you walk in. The location was perfect for someone like me as we had everything around us in walking distance. We have a total of 4 supermarkets near us and the beach is so close you can walk it no problem. I myself have enjoyed my first year so much that I have already rebooked my room for next year. Lovely environment and lovely people. Well worth the price.

Amazing place to stay although probably would get more for your money in other halls as Homepark has no gym

Absolutely adored being here so far, five weeks today and my experience is going well so far! The staff that work here are friendly and are so helpful. The placement of the building is in the right area for whatever you need, I mean spoons is basically a two minute walk away and who doesn’t love that?? Asda is nearby as well making it easier for you to do your shopping. The layout of your flat is also spacious and perfect. Love it love it love it

We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. We're so happy you like living at Home Park and you find the location convenient.

We don't include kettles and toasters, just because we have found that many students like to bring their own  (beleive us no flat needs 6 kettles :-))

As for mops and buckets, if you'd like to you can borrow these from reception, along with vacuum cleaners. 

Thanks again for the review - much appreciated x

Home park is modern and clean as it is a new building, some of the door handle are broken and sometimes the lifts Are broken but are fixed promptly. My shower leaked but maintenance came and quickly fixed it. When it is raining the windows leak water on the floor which other people have told me they experience too which is annoying. The facilities are very good and the room and kitchen is lovely and the communal room is awesome.

Home Park is pretty great as far as halls go. In terms of the expected problems and traumas that supposedly occur in halls accomodation, I didn't really experience anything like that and my stay at Home Park has been great, I plan to stay again next year infact. The good: AMAZING fire alarm system. The flats alarms are individually triggered until they have being going for a certain amount of time, At which point the whole building is evacuated. Needless to say we have had 1 evacuation for the entire year and it wasn't in the middle of the night. As far as halls go, I'd say that's outstanding. The bad: Random liquids / food / other things do regularly show up in the elevators, for whatever reason it's ALWAYS the elevators that are an absolute state and never clean. Really, These should be looked at DAILY. People are dirty and while unfortunate this should really be an expected thing at this point and not just something people have to put up with.

The staff at home park are wonderful, always have a smile on their faces and are more than happy to help with anything. This is one of the nicest student accommodations I have ever seen, so new and clean. The bathroom is definitely a highlight compared to others. Everyone is very social here and there is always some pres you can join. Location is perfect for all nightlife in bournemouth and with the convenience of Asda, cooperative and Tesco all less than a 5 minute walk away. Would definitely recommend to any student

Honestly I loved living at Home Park, I'm so sad to have to leave. The beds are very comfortable, there is loads of storage and desk space. The bathroom is one of the largest I've seen in student accommodation, the shower is much bigger than most. The reception team are very helpful and there are security guards at all times who are happy to help when you forget your fob. Overall I would highly recommend.

Hello, thank you for the lovely review and that you reccomend living here. When we designed Home Park, bed size and comfort were high on the list of priorities, all our beds are 4ft doubles, the mattresses are super comfy and we even include a free mattress topper.

Our shower rooms are indeed spacious, with a good sized shower, plenty of storage and an enormous mirror which is back-lit and perfect for getting ready in front of.

Don't be sad though, residents can stay for the whole of their degree if they want and you don't have to move out after the first year - why would you want to live anywhere else! :-) x

Thanks again for the review and we hope to have you back again soon x

Lovely rooms, lovely layout overall, however the walls (as with any accommodation) are not as sound proofed as they could be and management like to be on your case about the pettiest things. Besides that, if you're not loud, don't mind a bit of noise and like to keep your kitchen literally spotless, then you shouldn't have any run ins with home park reception (really just one person). Fast wifi is also a plus, a good amount of plugs and pretty comfy beds. Plus you get to tell everyone you live in home park (currently the nicest accommodation)

Excellent facilities both in the flats and in social spaces, staff couldn't be friendlier, 24 hour security which makes me feel safe, the cleaner is constantly working in the communal areas and is very friendly, any maintenance problems are sorted very quickly and there is literally everything you need in walking distance... uni, Asda, co-op, Tesco, train station, bus routes, bars, clubs, shops, doctor's... Everything. Thoroughly recommend, I've already booked for next year.
