The location is good but the price you pay is so high it’s gone up massive amounts over the 3 years I’ve stayed here and the lift issue is ongoing for the past year, constantly broken, the on site staff are helpful on the whole but this is an issue with the actual Fresh company who clearly don’t care about fixing the lift issue as reviews are left from 4 years ago with the exact same issues of the lift being out of service for months at a time which is a huge inconvenience when on a high floor I would not rebook here next year if I had another year due to the experience I’ve had in my final year

The worst management I have ever seen. The lifts have been broken from November until February just for them to "fix" them and have 3 people get stuck in them and then close them again. No compensation, no help with trash, no responses to complains, nothing

What first attracted me to the Lantern was the fantastic location, being situated right next to Lime Street, the city centre and a 10 minute walk from the universities is a massive advantage as a student. Though, since moving in it has constantly impressed me. The team here are extremely helpful and social, you often forget they manage the buildings and they're not just your friends. They regularly host great events for residents and consistently communicate to us whether it be for planned maintenance, wellbeing initiatives etc. The rooms, kitchens and facilities are all very modern and spacious and the 'backstage area' and the gym that is included put to proof your value for money,

The Lantern is a great, sociable accommodation, it has allowed me to feel comfortable as there are many social spaces on site along with great facilities. The location being a less than 5 minute walk from the town centre allows for easy travel to shops, for food and nights out. Also as The Lantern is a 1 minute walk from my bus stop so I am able to get on campus at Liverpool Hope I can easily get to uni and back stress free. The staff here as well are exceptional they have helped me when I have been feeling home sick and have even helped me with uni who as some of the staff also go to uni. They have been so good that I have even decided to stay next year.

I recommend this accomodation so so much! The location couldn’t be better and the rooms are much more spacious than all the other accommodations I’ve seen. The amount of storage in the bedrooms is amazing and the wardrobes are huge. The staff are really friendly and I have always felt very safe and comfortable living here. Depending on the part of the building you stay in it has some incredible views. I stayed in block A and the kitchen was really spacious and had a view an amazing view overlooking lime street station. The value for money could have been better but only because of the pandemic, as many things were limited but I understand some of these issues were out of the managements hands.

The lantern is definitely one of the nicest accommodations I’ve been to in Liverpool. It’s so central and the rooms/kitchens are modern and stylish, with loads of storage and a good sized wardrobe. The kitchen is so spacious with plenty of room for the whole flat to be in it at once. It is a bit pricey but if you have high standards it’s definitely worth the money. The management is so friendly and helpful if we ever have issues. I did stay in this accomodation during lockdown so a lot of the perks weren’t as easily accessible, however I know that is not the managements fault. Overall great experience!

Although it is in a good locationz that's about the o ly thing that's good about the lantern. Especially during these hard times with covis-19 their response has been awful. Almost every student accommodation in the city has released students from their tenancy agreements, whilst fresh student living is still forcing struggling students and their families to pay 2k! Shameful response considering we're not even allowed into the building if you aren't already on lockdown in your flat.

Perfect location in the city centre!! Super close to Uni of Liverpool and also LJMU. The in-house staff could be more efficient when responding and dealing with queries (e.g. moved into my flat in September to find the extractor fan was broken and it still is now as they are "awaiting a part" but have had no update of this, I had to chase this up!!) Rooms and communal spaces are pretty spacious and if you/your flatmates are good at keeping areas clean there should be no issues. The social spaces built this year are nice and modern but lacking that nice homely feel especially on the higher floors where the study spaces are (feels very cold in there). Other than that it's a good accommodation.

Poor reviews don't reflect the reality of how good this accommodation is. Good size rooms, lovely well designed shower room. Lots of storage. Great views. Spacious shared lounge & kitchen. Iron & hoover supplied. Of course it doesn't have utensils - it's student accommodation. It's not a hotel & you have to grow up & look after your flat

If you're looking for a place where homeless herion addicts come into the building and steal clothes out of the dryers then this place is for you. Ideal for students who love to hear their flat fire alarm go off from 8pm - 4am.
