Most helpful review

I have been living at Keele House for my second year of study. I wish I had spent my first year here too because it's been such a wonderful place to live. I am student with hidden disabilities that greatly impact my living needs. Keele House has provided me with the comfort, independence, and quality facilities that I was denied at my previous accommodation on campus. My studio feels like a home. It's bright, spacious, and secure. Any maintenance issues are dealt with fairly quickly and the maintenance worker is very friendly. The staff are really supportive and helpful, and the shared spaces are well-looked-after. I am not paying much more than I was on campus but the difference in experience and quality is like night and day. Living here has changed my life and I'm so grateful to the staff who have done an incredible job prioritising the students' safety, comfort, and happiness. I have rebooked for next year and absolutely recommend Keele House to any student.

The property is well kept and carefully managed, and the reception staff are always friendly and welcoming at the front desk. The building feels safe and secure and the location is very close to facilities in the centre of town, with a bus station nearby. I’ve enjoyed living here the last couple of years!

Generally students stay in halls for their first year at university, however after looking around I decided keele house was where I wanted to stay first year. I wanted my own space and wanted to be more independent. The common room is great for meeting new people and in the evening a great place to relax and chill with friends. Keele House is really really really close to the bus station and Newcastle town centre so you have everything on hand. The gym is well equipped with machines, however there is only one dumbbell and no bars, however if you did want use of more equipment exercise for less is the gym less than a ten minute walk away and often had student discounts. The WiFi is good and has only gone down a handful of times. I would recommend staying here no matter what year of study you are in as students from all years even post grad chose keele house.

This is my first year at keele house and I’ve enjoyed my experience that much that I’ve decided to rebook the same room again next year - which was such an easy process! The spacious rooms are amazing and ables you to make it feel like a second home, the social areas/ corridors etc are always well maintained and cleaned regularly. Any problems I’ve had have been resolved very quickly and easily. The location is perfect for me as it’s next to town and about a 5-10 min drive to campus! Would definitely recommend!!

As an international student, a lot of time went into researching for the “perfect accommodation.” After searching for other student accommodations, I felt Keele House best met my living needs. The most distinguishable quality KH studios has amongst others is walking space around the studio. The studios are very spacious allowing for movement to & from other stations & not a very crowded, tight space like other on & off-campus accommodations are. I have windows that I can open to get fresh air & sunlight, a fully functional heater, a huge wardrobe, a comfortable workstation with ample number of sockets/outlets & bright LED light. The kitchen cabinets & fridge are extremely spacious. KH has a very clean gymnasium with good quality equipment to get a good workout in that is open 24/7. KH is in the center & in walking distance of everything you need! Not to mention the extremely friendly & helpful property managers who host fun game nights with food & drinks! I'm so glad I chose KH!

I am currently in my 3rd year staying with Keele House, and renting the same room. The spacious room is what I can consider a home away from home. Great storage and living spaces. Great value for a studio! The location is fantastic as I am at a walking distance to shops, bus station, Newcastle High Street and Royal Stoke University Hospital. Aside from the convenience of getting all bills sorted in one payment, I am pleased with how the parcels are safely collected and stored by the office/reception. The management has been very hands on, supportive and accommodating, especially during the pandemic. This year’s management might be the most efficient team that I have stayed with in the last 3 years. Any maintenance issues were sorted in a timely manner. I would totally recommend Keele House to Keele students and graduates, as well as to Hospital workers.

I have been stayed here since I started my PhD, experienced 3 rooms in 3 years. Basically, this building is well-equipped and perfectly located, any studio has sufficient space for 1 or 2 people, and there is a free gym meets amateur needs. The price for classic studio is about £120 a week, and no other jumbled fee at all. The building managers are kind and very helpful, they try their best to improve our live quality, including solving issues instantly, arranging events thoughtfully, and paying attention to their tenants individually. I feel confident to recommend this building to international students like me, don't forget to pick up free treats from the reception everyday :)

I’ve just rebooked to stay at Keele House for my 3rd year as I’ve absolutely loved living here during my 1st and 2nd year. The property team are lovely, helpful, very approachable and so friendly! I love my living experience here and the rooms are just perfect. The property is in the best location- in close proximity to public transport links as well as several different shops and stores. I would highly recommend this property to any students searching for a place to live within the area.

I've had such a lovely experience living here. To begin with I did have some troubles with room arrangements but Susan and Claire were amazing at getting these sorted for me and making sure I really settled in! They are lovely and very welcoming, always smiling when you go past reception and offering drinks and sweets and other little things! And are always happy to have a catch up and a chat. I've already rebooked my room for next year and can happily call this my home!

It is literally a home away from home. Property is clean, well maintained and rooms have a fantastic modern time charm. It’s only a hop, skip, and a jump away from major grocery stores, supermarkets, bus/train station, delis and parks. To me this has been very helpful because each time I want to hit the snooze button; I groggily stumble out of bed and go for a tempo run at Lyme valley park. The staff is very friendly, responsive and incredibly helpful. They go over and beyond to help make your stay enjoyable. Very good internet quality in the room and so are other amenities. It’s easy to meet someone new in the common room or the gym or gather with friends. Have had nothing but my peace of mind staying whilst staying here. I recommend this accommodation for anyone wanting to live off campus.

Keele house is a fantastic accommodation which provides a high level of comfort, ease of living and safety. The rooms are all studio apartments with a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom all-in-one, so it is great if you need privacy. The common room is perfect to socialise and study in and there is a gym for those who are looking to stay fit! I have lived in Barnes Hall, Keele University and in Keele House for two years each and I can safely say that Keele House is the best accommodation I have lived in. This is because I love my privacy and to socialise with my friends, so keele house provides a perfect balance for this. Keele house has come under new management this year and having experienced the management last year too, I believe the staff now are much friendlier, and better at their job because whenever I had issues in my room last year, I would not get a response for at least a week, however, I had an issue this year and the managers got someone to sort it out the next day.
