Any halls are a great place if you get along and have great housemates! You'll have some of the best times if your life in halls. In Ledbury it was a decent size for what you're paying, however the wifi was diabolical, always cutting out, however I think this was a problem over the uni as a whole and not just ledbury halls
For one of the cheapest halls £104 a week we (flat 8) have four rooms a massive wet room, bathroom and communal area which is great space for having parties or just hanging about in the kitchen. The halls could do with updating like the walls and fridges etc but 2 min walk to the uni as you are by the bus stop and woodbury building. Our cupboard space is better than some of the more expensive halls! room size is good in all rooms as they include some nice storage space and study desk and we are right next to the taxi pick up point. As our building is smaller and the ceilings lower it feels more homely than the newer expensive halls, also the colour schemes feel like home. Cleaners are good depending on who you have as a couple of occasions they have skipped days and even not cleaned except wiping the kitchen table and that's it considering that's part of your rent but overall good also maintenance are good with response however,Ledbury again needs updating as we have made many requests
Too expensive for what it is. £107 a week no ensuite no comfy chairs in the common room no TV. Cleaning doesn't turn up half of the time and even if they do its not a proper cleaning. Sinks in the bathrooms are always left dirty, shower isn't even touched.
Ledbury halls are the heart and soul of the Worcester uni social life, there is always something going on there every night every year. Not the prettiest rooms but they get the job done and sharing bathrooms is surprisingly never really an issue. Defiantly recommend to any first years.
Ledbury had a lovely atmosphere with each hall joining together, relaxed and comfortable for making friends. 1min walk to uni campus shop, 5min walk to main reception area, 10min walk to local shop, 20min walk to town. Taxi service going to town is right by the campus shop so only 1min percent walk! Bedrooms and living areas are standard, it's what you make of it I.e posters and pictures
Out of all of the halls.. The first block flat 1-8 for Ledbury is incredible.. You all have balconies facing eachother.. Meaning social life is amazing.. Makes other halls look naff.. Instead of having 6-8 flat mates and maybe the flat opposite you as friends.. You have about 30 people at predrinks! And when you're bored there's always someone about to chat or party with!
Ledbury is a fairly average halls. The price is extortionate but if you go for the cheapest the quality of hall decreases massively, and if you go up to standard plus, well the area might be nicer and much newer but you don't get much more for your money. I prefer my kitchen and bedroom (it's a small attic room but it's not as small as i imagined.it's cute and I love my blackout blinds!) to those of my friends in the next accommodation up. We have a fairly large kitchen and have a lot more fridge and freezer space than other flats! Ledbury is known as the party halls every year and this year has been no exception. Incredibly loud music, lots of parties, slamming doors screaming and shouting at all hours, people smoking everywhere (and not just tabacco..). I quite honestly have loathed living in halls. I found the people lazy and selfish and can't wait to move into a house next year! Also Ledbury is in a great location in terms of being close to the Su etc but you can hear the karaoke.
