Absolutely terrible people and the most unhelpful staff, I made an agreement with a tenant to take over her tenancy and she was kind enough to let it to me for £100 pw instead of £133 and paid the difference herself. And the girl quickly made the £1600 difference to the agent. I called the agents and booked an appointment with the them for the following day (from Leeds ) to go sign the contract and they emailed me and the tenant that I'll be the replacement tenant. I was on the coach to Newcastle literally 20mins away, they called me and said that they gave the studio flat to somebody else because somebody else out Of nowhere FOUND OUT that the previous tenant had made the £1600 payment and came this morning and signed the contract. This was sooo shady of them. They were so rude to me when i went there to speak to them. The previous tenant had no idea that they rented the flat to someone else. They were literally lying to my face. Do NOT recommend at all
Fantastic accomodation, very modern and clean. In terms of location it's about 2 minute walk to Northumbria university and 10 minute walk to Newcastle university. There is a gym on site. The only negative things I can say is that the price is not the cheapest but if you have a part time job and your loan you'll be fine. The waashibg machine facility however is awful and stained my clothes with rust, and also very expensive.
This place is amazing for if you want your own space. It's a 10 min walk to the city centre and nearest clubs, and a 10 min walk to Northumbria Uni with Newcastle just across the road. Everyones extremely friendly here - including the staff. It's definitely a place for peace and quiet if you don't like too much interaction but you always in a position to socialise down in the common room which have different nights (like pizza nights or parties), whilst including having a PS4, ping pong table and pool table. You have 4 washers and dryers which is pretty much enough for how many people live here; just don't go on weekends. The only problem is the free wifi you connect to isn't that great, however you can pay for a better one if you're up to it. I highly recommend this place!
Pretty terrible. Stayed over summer, within a week your room feels like a prison. It's clean and the furniture is nice but there's floodlights like a doctor's room, the windows are portholes with a film over the surface to prevent light getting in and carpets are black. 7 rooms have a common room and kitchen which is okay, with a sofa and a good TV. When I first checked in, I wasn't shown the main common room, refuse location, laundry system, gym facilities (now revoked). Nothing! Further, there's not much green space or even a decent view and you feel oftentimes like you're in a car-park. Laundry is £2.50 per wash, £1.20 per dry and the laundry system is a huge hassle to use. Topping up online and scanning machines and buying cards. The halls common room has a football table but is made terrible by the joint laundry room. (Who thought that was a good idea?!) The ONLY saving grace is it's location by the Quay. STAY AWAY.
The noise levels in this pace are ridiculous. Contractors arrive before 8am and start their banging, shouting and other loud noises. The studios are poorly laid out. They can get very hot in summer but the window hardly opens, there is no ventilation and it's not ideal to sleep with the window open because of the noise levels (other than contractors people stand outside shouting at ridiculous hours). So you are basically trying to sleep in a green house with no fresh air. In addition, the window is next to the bed, which makes it bright because the blinds are useless. The washing machines always stink because people close it after using it, which means your clean freshly washed clothes end up stinking. The social aspects are poor. Even when the contractors are gone I do not recommend this place.
All throughout my stay there has been renovation works going on so often waking up to loud drilling and heavy objects being moved around. There is constant works going on outside and overall liberty quay feels like a prison and I pay the most out of all my friends £124 a week for a single bed, very overpriced and a good 10minute walk away to uni as opposed to most only being 2-5 minutes. Would not recommend even after the renovation has been done
A lot of things need to be updated (appliances, bathrooms) and also the gate at the front is a pain if you have lots of bags and there is very rarely a guard to open the big gate. Otherwise it's a good place to live in terms of location etc.
