The rooms are amazing! I’m in a classic en-suite and is it very spacious for student accommodation, very clean-looking bedrooms and bathrooms which are nice and modern (as well as the kitchens/living areas). The staff are all helpful and friendly, always happy to help. It is an easy 10-15 minute walk to the University of Lincoln, there are shops just down the road (2 min walk) to buy food etc. Great location for both the university and nightlife, since most of the bars/clubs in Lincoln are located right next to the accommodation (2 minute walk once again) Overall having a good experience with Danesgate House:)

It's more expensive than some other accomodations but that's because it's to a higher standard. The rooms are light and the windows are amazing! Have actual showers with doors. Friendly and nice staff, there usually someone there. The kitchens are big and modern which is nice, perfect for pres and afters. So close to the clubs and shops, and its a nice walk to the uni. So glad I came here and very sad to leave :( Wifi does randomly drop out from time to time though which can be p annoying but it isnt often enough to be an actual problem

Brilliant place to live! It was so close to town so I always visited my friends who lived there, and we would stay after a night out. Compared to where I live, everything like maintenance requests were always done so quick. I wish I had lived here in my first year. The staff were really friendly, the housekeeper even cleaned the communal corridors and always had a chat with everyone. The flats and rooms are a good size with big open windows and Cathedral views.

Positives +Reception and cleaning staff are helpful and friendly +Large flats of up to 16 people so good to meet new people + EN suites +Slap bang in City Center 2 min walk from Lincolns best clubs +10 mins away from Uni Negatives -"Super Fast Wifi" advertised on the page is a joke. Up to 100Mbps is misleading I got on average 5-10mbps and if you are a gamer the ping is extremely inconsistent: 40-500ms depending on time of day. Wifi also cuts off unexpectedly. -Value for money: I paid £120 pw which is steep considering the rooms are small Basic bed, cheap mattress, wardrobe and a desk. -The washing facilities are ridiculous its £5 for a 30 minute wash and a 50 minute dry. Machines are tiny so you have to do multiple loads - cheaper for me to get the train home and do my washing! -The rent payments are not aligned with maintenance loans so you have to pay a £50 deferment fee x3 if you cant pay the upfront cost. Thats an extra £150 hidden in the T&Cs which is dirty money...

Before moving in, the staff were very supportive in helping to finish my application and made me feel secure that I had a place to stay for the first year. Stayed in an en-suite, and when maintenance problems occurred, staff provided quick service to sort that (not anything major: things like blockages in the sink, shower etc.). Convenient location spot as it's next to the town and in close range to the clubs. Overall, had a good experience and glad I had stayed here for my first year. Thank you Danesgate!

Great people, great place! I am staying here for all 3 years of my course, the people in charge are lovely and so helpful, as are all the staff. Only downside is that it's a bit noisy at night and the wifi isn't always great, but you get used to it.

First off the internet at Danesgate house wasn't the best but after working with the ict team that was quickly fixed. This has been my only issue at Danesgate house and if there was another issue it was fixed usually within the day. The staff are very welcoming and accommodation for new and old students and make the experience staying in Danesgate house even better, i would highly recommend Danesgate house to anyone going to university in Lincoln

Initially it was alright the rooms were big but as time went on it was clear the staff didn't care about any complaints that were made. When a flatmate was attacked by another flatmate which we caught on camera they refused to move the offending flatmate even though she made continued threats and verbal harassment towards us. The overnight guest policy was not enforced which lead to a week long party by the aforementioned flatmate during exam season. The fire alarms were going off at around 3am due to faults in the alarm system. The wifi and Internet was either not connected or so slow that you would have to go down to the libary to do work or go on social media.So I would not recommend paying £103 for a week to live in danesgate especially as a student.

Not worth it. Reported problems all year round and nothing ever got fixed or sorted. Absolutely regretting lives here all year. Fire alarm is set off constantly, expensive for what is provided, 16 bed flat all with ensuites £103 a week, even though mantinence problems are never fixed. People constantly breaking contracts with overnight guest rules, etc and nothing done about it except a warning (or 4 but nothing was ever sorted and it still kept happening). Stay away and look for somewhere that actually sorts the problems rather than failing you in room inspection for it (even though it's been reported 20 times previous and not fixed) or you get charged up to £100 for certain things if they believe you broke it and not due to general use. Seriously not worth the hassle, find somewhere else to live.

Initially not impressed with Danesgate House because i moved in after a refurbishment which delayed lots and things were constantly breaking - but once everything had settled, it is a lovely accommodation to live in and everyone was lovely at reception. One of the cheaper halls to live in and so close to the town and nightlife. Lots of takeaways close by too! Definitely worth a look around and I would recommend it to all new coming students!
