Q
I did not enjoy my time here. My hot water never worked - even when I repeatedly told maintenance and requested help through the app, it wouldn't get fixed. Luckily my boyfriend lived down the road so I could shower at his place but even this was still a hassle. My room was small and dark. Although this is through no fault of Manor Bank, I had awful flatmates; we had maggots at one point in the ki...

The building is really close to Northumbria University and also close to the City centre. The staff have been great since I moved in and answered any questions I might have had. I made some really good friends from the get go and booked out the common room for a few movie nights with them. The price was great at £97 a week and I felt like I got a lot for money.

Had a great couple of years living here, really decent price and so close to campus. The staff were always great and had time for me too, even when I had issues with some flatmates and was thinking about moving, they sorted it all.

The team at Manor Bank are lovely, when things did go wrong they were always there to help. Fantastic value for money for city centre accommodation. My room was in great condition, I booked a premium room that looked like it had been freshly painted and lots of things in the flat looked new. Good common room too! I had a great year here.

When I moved here, the kitchen was ABSOLUTELY FILTHY. Rotting food scattered on all the work tops with MASSIVE flies hovering over it. On top of that, there were what appeared to be rat faeces on the kitchen floor. The accommodation is located downhill at a steep angle - such an extremely steep angle that I ended up losing my footing and pulling a muscle - very dangerous if you are in a hurry in the mornings or returning late from uni when there is less visibility or are simply a woman who loves wearing heels(!!) There was also foul-smelling water spewing out of one of the gutters and collecting right in front of the bottom gate. It is also right next to the train track - so expect a lot of noise. AVOID at all costs and look for better accommodation in Shieldfield is my advice!!!!!

Probably the worst student accommodation place I've ever been to. When my friends and I first got there, everything was dirty and broken. Despite the complains that we made not all of our requests were completed. Now they are trying to charge us for the broken things that were already like this when we came in. Not to mention that you will not be able to get good quality sleep since the walls are made of plasterboard and you can hear the slightest noise. It is also worth mentioning that they were times when we didn't even have warm water. Therefore, I will be not recommending this student accommodation to anyone. There are plenty of student accommodations which have similar prices like this one, but they are actually way better, more modern, with great customer services.

it's a very old building and it's very noisy all the time both by drunk students and by trains as the building is built right beside train rails. the fire alarm goes off every other day and it is terrible when you have exams the next morning and suddenly you have to wake up at 4am because of the fire alarm and to evacuate the building only to find out that it was a false alarm.. the kitchen chairs are broken and the sofas are very uncomfortable. cleaning every fortnight was good and people at the reception are friendly. bed mattresses are uncomfortable because of how old the building is and the amount of students that have slept on it over time. the halls smell weird all the time and are carpeted with vomit stains by drank students. the elevators are very dirty and smell especially when students carry their garbage from their kitchen to the ground floor. the washing machines always break and are faulty AND too expensive! (3£ plus 1.70£ for the dryer).

I had a horrible experience at Manor Bank. Please if you’re reading this, don’t bother. I had problems with my flatmates and had no support from the staff. The security is very inadequate, even when locked doors could be opened and broken into by my flatmates. Guests entered and left the building whenever, there was no record of people going in and out. We even ended up with a drug dealer in our flat at one point.

Would not recommend these halls. Not social at all and not that clean. Far too expensive also! Nearly £125 a week!
