Ernest Place is definitely comfortable to live in especially with Tesco extra only 1 min away it almost feels like a giant fridge outside of your house. You’ll be able to make lots of friends in here but if you haven’t had friends in colleges yet then EP will be an independent bubble and sort of exclude you from the big group in town. BUT depends what you want. My time here has been brilliant.
Ernest Place turned out to be ideal for me during my PhD study, and I ended up rebooking twice. After a year at Sheraton Park (Ustinov College), the contrast in the standard of accommodation was sharp. From the stark white of Sheraton, my studio at Ernest Place feels calm and cozy, with its neutral décor and well-appointed furnishings. Located just across the road from a very large Tesco supermarket, shopping has been a breeze, cutting down on an extra weekly chore. This element of convenience is also present in Ernest Place's facilities itself - for my purposes having such easy access to a gym was fantastic, though there are also relaxing social spaces to take a break in. The free S1 bus pass, too, took the stress out of getting down to the library and university campus. Mostly, however, I think the best thing about Ernest Place is the staff - from management, to reception, to cleaning and maintenance. Everything just 'works', there is no stress; everyone is friendly and helpful.
It’s a very comfortable, nice accommodation. The area is very convenient as there is a large tesco store 1 minute away, and restaurants within a short walking distance. The accommodation is clean, the rooms are large and have many shelves, places to put stuff in. The staff are really nice, helpful and friendly, they’re always trying their best to make the residents feel comfortable during their stay at the accommodation.😊
The social spaces were shut for most of the stay due to COVID-19, but once they were open they were easy to make the most of, and since they were so large it was easy to remained distanced at the same time! The terrace was especially helpful for the hotter days of summer, and 200% made up for not having a specific 'garden' as you may have in a house. All the furniture is incredibly comfortable in the social spaces, and the furniture in the rooms (as well as the fixtures) are all gorgeous and really high quality. I have loved my stay here, it has made the entire university experience easier since I know my flat is somewhere I can feel comfortable and 'at home'
Ernest Place in Durham is a valuable accommodation. The facility worth more rent fees. The hospitality team is really helpful and warm. The location is far from the city centre, but surrounded by various groceries, so it depends your requirements. The pink bus that the accommodation offered for free to the city centre is not reliable. I would highly recommend here if you don't need to go to uni every morning.
Amazing place with different types of rooms and studios (suitable for different budgets), free sauna, gym, gaming and studying rooms. Amazing hospitality staff. Free bus to take you to and bring you from the city center. Super fast Internet (more than 100 Mbps). In front of Tesco Extra the only branch in Tesco that provides organic food. close to TK maxx, Lidl and Aldi. I love living here as this place provides everything I need and close to variety of stores.
Comfortable and very well-equipped accommodation. Facilities at Ernest Place are really amazing, and I’ve been particularly impressed with the quality of the sauna! The staff are extremely friendly and, being across the road from a Tesco Extra really does make for a very convenient existence in Durham. Overall, very happy with the accommodation.
We had great time in Ernest place. The accommodation is 3 minute away from Tesco extra, which made life so much easier and more convenient. The accommodation itself is brilliant. The studio room is luxurious and cozy. The facilities such as gym is also luxurious. It is a pity that we didn’t get a chance to enjoy others such as cinema and lounge due to the pandemic. The management team is very professional, kind and thoughtful. Highly recommend!
