Helen, Danielle, and Connor always greeted me with warm welcomes and goodbyes. On top of that they have always been great hosts and maintained the place well, which always leaves me with a great mood when I see them.

Danielle, Connor, and Janet are lovely. Danielle really went out of her way to help me secure accommodation for my friends. Connor and Janet are always very happy to help, and both very friendly. Big shoutout to Danielle and Kev for organising the Wonka movie night.

I really like Houghall overall, so much so I convinced two of my friends to live here next year. Houghall was very popular amongst students for next year. Danielle really went above and beyond to help us to secure rooms for my friends, I cannot thank her enough. All the staff are very approachable and very happy to help, it's always lovely to have a conversation with Connor and Janet.

Hey, just wanted to say that the staff here are super helpful and are always there to help you solve problems + back you up. I've had problems with flatmates being noisy and not changing their behaviour, Danielle helped me resolve the issue perfectly and I'm really grateful for her support and help. She's a marvellous team leader at Houghall court!

Hey, I spend a year in Houghall Court and I really liked it ! The staff is super nice and problems are solved promptly. But I have some ideas to improve the experience. First, it could be better if there was a cleaning agent coming every two weeks or once a month at least; cleaning inspection arn’t enough. I have spend my year with really dirty and messy flatmates and Being the only one cleaning the kitchen have been a real issues for me and my mental health. And, by the way, the mop provided is really bad; if we have to clean ourself, tools need to be better and easy to use. Second, there should be a system of booking (online, on paper, at the description, in the app…) for the TV room and the other « private communal » area. Beacause those room are not really used since you’re not sure, if you make plans, that you will have an access and no else gonna be using the room at the same time. Another point; I ordered the bed kit at the beginning of the year and it’s really bad quality.

Houghall court is beautifully located surrounded by farms, hills and forests. The absence of the sound of traffic is a delight. Danielle, the sales representative and receptionist has been resourceful in helping an international student like me to settle into Durham. I would consider her, my local guardian.
