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!

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.

Nice, cosy, with a lot of light rooms. Big modern kitchen and living room. Perfect location. 10 minutes to uni and just in the middle of the city centre.

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.

Very nice rooms well laid out with large beds, the walk to campus isn't too long but can get annoying after a while.
