All in all, I loved staying in Hepworth Lodge as I was really lucky with my flatmates who have become some of my closest friends. It’s quite a social accom compared to others but still much quieter than marsden house. The rooms and kitchen are lovely (would’ve loved a TV in the kitchen). However, the few bad things were that the bathrooms are tiny, especially the shower, which I struggled to get used to even after weeks of living there. All the staff are really lovely and friendly. Location is ideal only a 15 minute walk from the centre and also very close to lots of other accom so has a nice student feel. Also, the ibis hotel next door often has quite creepy men stood outside, I actually had no issues all year with them except the very occasional cat call but just something to be weary of, not to be put off though.
Ibis hotel has lots of weird men. 1 of which made their way into our block and was hiding on a corner then proceeded to hide under the stairs when we got security. So feel very safe now. Par that the accom is good, social, rooms are really nice, kitchen is big.
This accommodation is decent in a sense that you have a pretty spacious room with plenty of storage, your own wet room sized bathroom and a pretty nice kitchen. However a pretty recurring thing that has completely thrown me off is staff entering the flat whenever they like and without warning a lot of the time. I had a man let himself into my room whilst I was in bed to check on the smoke detector, which is a breach of my privacy but ok. Then the house keepers come at whatever time and wander around the flat then leave, and it seems at this point that it's every few days. There's no common room where you can go and chill somewhere else that isn't your own room which is really annoying. Post boxes and stuff are all in reception and not in each block which is annoying as well ( my friends accom has their post boxes in every block so it is doable) the lifts are all in a shambles with buttons broken off and missing. The ibis hotel has frequent creepy men pleasuring themselves inthe windows
I had a really good time at Hepworth. I think the rooms are perfect and I had a perfect amount of space. Reception is lovely and very helpful. Not much of a space to meet people though. Its noisy depending on how close you are to the courtyard. I personally had a wonderful time no issues and friends said the same!
When I first looked at liberty park I was sure I was getting a really nice place to live, the rooms constantly feel like a prison although ok spacing it feels less then homely, the bathroom is like a air plane bathroom with less then etiquette spacing for a shower (have fun cramping up just to fit under the shower). The common room I received was nice, it had an ok view of the motorway and industrial restaurants and casinos. The "handy-men" who work here are constantly friendly and always ready to help any concern, the staff women are sometimes friendly if the day is going right for them but if you have a complaint you'll be first to be blamed for it (the was a bug infestation and the women at the desk said that it was because our rooms weren't clean enough even though our rooms were spotless). Overall, the place is too expensive for what you get, (Im moving into a proper 5 bed room house and I'll be paying less then half the price I pay for Liberty).
I initially loved this accommodation, I had a pretty big room; the furniture was of pretty good quality as well. The bathroom is a on the small side, but it wasn't really a problem. I also happened to live on the ground floor and that really annoyed me because you could hear people going in and out all the time; it's not that bad usually, but it's horrible on the weekends when people come back 4 in the morning drunk and yelling the entire time whilst they're waiting for the elevator. The staff at liberty are really nice except for the ladies at the reception; they never know what's going on and they take forever to find you your package even though its probably one of the very few responsibilities they have. They also handled the flood situation really badly; I was told I received a call from reception about emptying the kitchen when I clearly didn't, and everything I owned was thrown out even though it wasn't damaged from the flood. It's also at a very inconvenient location.
not too bad i guess but a bit of a walk in the morning along with many flat parties so you will always meet new people overall not a bad place i guess
When I first came here, it seemed okay, I got the promise of a nice view over looking the river or the surrounding area, but what I did get was a view of windows! The rooms are dark and dinghy! The more I am here the more it feels like a prison I honestly cant wait to leave in a few weeks
