Liked this halls a lot to begin with. Food is nice, despite no lunches. The people you'll meet are great too, so the social experience is awesome. Getting the bus isn't a huge issue you'll just get used to that. The things that really tick me off is the lack of wifi, and the fact that today I opened the kitchen cupboard to find cockroaches. these little buggers are spotted now and then around my block which is just gross to be honest.
The best halls for a 'typical' university experience. Being off-campus means that there is fantastic chemistry between all, not to mention that we are surrounded by fields on all four sides, which means that there is literally no restriction on noise restraints (within the halls-specified hours). There's also something to be said for the psychological effect of 'going home' at the end of a day after uni, rather than nipping round the corner, like the Crown Place lot have to do. Yes, there's a bit of a bottleneck with regards busses when attempting to attend 09:00 lectures, but the catered full English makes more than up for it. Ian the warden is a lovely guy, as are Tony and the two lasses who run reception. There aren't quite enough washing machines, but if you go at an off-peak time, you'll have no problem finding one. Oh, and we have our own balconies, too.
This wasn't my first choice for accommodation but after a couple of nights it was surely home! It proximity to Sefton and greenback park makes it a great place for social get togethers and bbq's. An assortment of pubs within walking distance, vital I'd say for a sunny afternoon! Each room has its own balcony (apart from the unlucky ground floor residents) making the bedrooms feel light and airy, even though they are compact. I was hesitant about shared bathrooms, but this turned out to be fine. No, they aren't luxury or ensuit, but they are functioning and cleaned every day.
Although it doesn't look luxurious it does the job and you'll save money for more nights out unlike the more expensive accommodations! The food isn't that bad but by 2nd semester it is getting a bit samey and you do have to plan your day around meal times but it's better food than I could do myself. It's very sociable and you make lots of friends very quickly.
