I like Houghall is slightly away from town, so it’s quiet and safe. Staffs are nice, especially Danielle who is super helpful.

Student Review: 3.9 /5
By member468962 On 15th May 22

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.
