All in all I’ve spent 3 full years here in a studio room and I can say ive had an amazing experience and I have met some great people. It’s very close to the university (5 min walk to the uni) and the housekeeping staff always keep the place clean. The reception team is very friendly and always willing to help and it’s managed by Aimar who always goes above and beyond for the students here.

I have stayed in Dorset house this year and I will be rebooking for next year. It is a great location and the staff are very friendly. Shout out to Ranila, Abhay and Aimar

Dorset house has been a great place to stay and very convenient for me to get to university as it is a 10 minute walk. The people are friendly and the staff are great. I have stayed here for 3 years and by far the best staff has been Aimar. He always helps me out and works very to make sure everyone is happy.

Living in dorset this year has been a struggle. I have had so many maintenance issues it’s been a genuine nightmare. But since aimar started working he’s the only member of staff who has tried to help me and got my issues fixed.

I’ve really enjoyed my stay at Dorset house, I’ve made some great memories but my stay would not have been complete without Aimar. He is the best management by far and ALWAYS tries to find a solution for all of the students here. We are very grateful and hopefully Aimar will be here for the following semester.

Overall great. However it wouldnt be a nice experience without a welcoming reception. Especially a staff member that goes by the name Aimar. He helped me very quickly and efficiently when I faced problems or had questions!

Only good thing is location. Complained about broken door to block numerous times and nothing done, found homeless people sleeping in hallway and still they won’t fix. People working reception are useless and cleaning is poor. Can’t wait to leave.
