Most helpful review

I had an amazing experience at park view. The receptionist and maintenance people are lovely. A particular receptionist name Elena was one of the loviest and most helpful person on desk. She is always very informative and fun to be around when hosting events. I would recommend this place as a student stay!

Love the staff so much always so lovely and upbeat, the area is a good distance from the unis and lots of buses about, pretty quiet accom not much social stuff goes on but also means minimal noise. The flats and rooms are nice and the kitchen/ living rooms are very big with nice bit windows which is nice.

Reception staff are absolutely wonderful and there are always free treats at reception such as crisps, drinks, sweets etc. Area is generally nice, there’s a bus stop outside which is helpful although I don’t walk around after dark alone. If you’re looking for a quiet accommodation with minimal parties etc then this would be a good place for you. 20min walk from universities and five minute from a tesco and lidl.

I did not enjoy living at Park View one bit, I thankfully managed to get someone to take over my tenancy 8 months later which I felt guilty about because they would of had to put up with selfish messy flatmates and the most noisy person above who I complained about and nothing was ever resolved, they over flowed their shower and it leaked into my light in my bathroom. There were rats running around outside, they charge for the car park which I was unaware of before moving in, the rooms had other peoples stuff in and the fridge/freezer was full and going off from the people before, they calculated my tenancy takeover money completely wrong like £1,800 short but managed to get this resolved once I had made them aware of this. The people who have taken over park view now are better than the people before at least, I hope the people before like Helen got into trouble for the lack of student care whilst all the staff drove around in nice flashy cars.

Do not come here unless, you like lying for your laundry and having no where to dry so you have to use their broken dryers, legit 2 wooden benches that count as “common areas” the rooms are small and dead, the location is legit right between moss Ife and Rusholme which speaks for its self. Wi-Fi is the worst no 24hr staff and I think the worst part Is you need a fob to get in and out of everywhere.

The perfect place if you want something within budget and close to the university. Reasonable distance from Lidl and other stories. A bus stop right outside the accommodation and the staff are super friendly and helpful. If you are an introvert this place is for you as there will be absolutely no social events. The accommodation offers free hamper/products very frequently. Now coming to the drawbacks, the place offers no social events and therefore if you are first year student/ a social person, find someplace else. The WIFI is terrible, it gets disconnected for like a hundred times a day on your phone and don't rely on it for video calling. Frankly would have preferred another accommodation if not for the price and the staff. 👍🏼

Overall, for this price, you can get accommodations with a gym, cinema, way more central in an area you don’t fear for your life. My stay at Grafton St Sanctuary Students made me realise what I was missing out on and how terrible this accommodation is. I wish I could go back to tell everyone to move out, because they’re wasting money on NOTHING!! Do not go here, there are so many better places with better facilities, staff, area. To summarise - dirty room & kitchen (literal SOCK in my room when I moved in, years worth of dust, dirt, and blood). Staff are rude, inconsiderate, slow. Oven never worked. Parcels late. Haven’t got my deposit after 6 months. I have my things in a jammed cupboard that they STILL haven’t fixed!!!! Dodgy area. No common room. Below average wifi. There aren’t staff/security on site 24/7, which is the worst in such a dodgy area - unlike my next accommodation that was only £115 a week and had 24 hour security. Do not waste your money!!!!

I've recently booked a flat viewing and was given a tour by a very kind lady, mrs Jo. Unfortunately I will be living somewhere else next year due to flatmates' preferences but I definitely recommend this hall to other students. The location is very good - close to university, a lot of shops and Whitworth park, although I advise caution at night. The lack of separate common room is a bummer, but there is a social little corner in the reception area for anyone interested. Overall a pleasant viewing and a solid accommodation option compared to other places I've heard about :) *ratings are just a bet*

For my viewing, Elena was extremely friendly and helpful! While I didn't choose to live there ultimately (the contract length was too long for me), the space looked really nice and clean. Great location as it's a 15 minute walk to Uni!

The staff at reception, especially Elena and Leah are really great to talk to and really helpful when I need help with anything. So overall engagement is really great. However some of the facilities could be improved such as the WiFi as it is often quite slow and I often have difficulties reconnecting, and social things have been lacking but this is probably due to Covid. Overall though, a really nice place to live.

Neil, Andy and Zekiel are just as great and look after us and the building so well. I’m gutted I won’t be staying next year (it’s my final year) but I would recommend Park View to anyone!

Great cost, especially for students completing an NHS course. Good location - walkable distance to main campus. The process of booking this accommodation was made 100 times easier thanks to support provided by Elena Bernal. Really helpful and dedicated to answering all your enquiries. Very much looking forward to next year.

Park view is in an excellent location, with a bus stop literally right outside the front door. It’s situated 15 minutes from a big Asda, and 5 minutes from the main road with many other shops and main bus routes. The rooms are spacious, with an en suite and a large kitchen living space. I would recommend Park view

I had a hard time making friends and felt really homesick, they invited me to a party and introduced me to loads of people. I wish there was a bigger area where we could hang out or a pool table or something? I have rebooked my room for next year.

I have been with ParkView since September 2018. Parkview offers a really affordable accommodation in a great location, Universities are a ten-fifteen minute walk and is round the corner from great public transport links. The staff are great! The first year there were a few staff changes but staff members like Kerry, Helen, Neil & Few Others have helped with any issues or concerns I have. They are really approachable and nothing is too much. On the social side, this has changed again throughout my stay, whilst the first year there wasn't really much going on, this year however there has been multiple events and activities going on. Room facilities are good, although some areas could do with some TLC, but should anything go wrong Neil & the team would help us out quickly as he can to rectify it. Overall if you are looking for affordable student digs, in a great location and supported by a great team then look no further.

Covid-19: I had to leave the property in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 outbreak, since then the property team have been communicating with me how best they can help with and have been so kind into offering me to end my tenancy early in May 2020 and still keep my stuff safe and secure until the government says its safe to travel to collect. Parkview have gone above and beyond in this area.
