The staff are friendly enough, except some night staff but understandably it can be an annoying job. The common room downstairs is so nice, however they need to do more with it, for example Purbeck have events etc (Xbox nights, Ann summers) to get people involved. Also, I definitely think the washing machines should be 24 hours and be put onto a card which can be topped up online. Another thing, the smoking area is really nice as well compared to other halls. Very convenient location, right by the bus stop and co-op.

Very student orientated with interior/ location. I feel that it could be slightly cheaper, the rooms are very basic. But the staff are welcoming and good facilities. The social experience is great!!

Really pleasant time living in Cranborne House. Rent is good since bills is included in the cost so you don't have to spend hours sorting it out with your housemates like in 2nd/3rd year. Fire alarms were really prone to go off though.

Great location, security can be a bit too strict sometimes, having to come downstairs to let a friend in every time can become very annoying

I loved living Cranborne House, would definitely recommend it over the other halls. * Really sociable building,smoking area is good compared to other halls. * Day and night staff are great * Common room is a bit on the small side but is okay. * Rooms are good, showers can be a bit temperamental sometimes. * Kitchen space is good if you live in North or South Block. * Lifts often break down and sometimes take a few days to fix * Fire alarms do go off more than other halls * Really close to Co-op * 5 minutes away from Lansdowne, and about 15 from town * Doesn't get as hot as Dorchester House! I got on really well with my flatmates and had a decent mix of people, would definitely recommend living in Cranborne, gave me the best possible halls experiences ever.

Dont waste your money and get trapped into a contract here, for just under £600 a month its not worth it. I cant wait to leave. Our oven doesnt work properly, the showers are cold. When you report this to maintenence they do come and check it out promptly but its never fixed properly. Rooms are okay but small. Not so bad if you dont mind noise all the time however the walls are so thin you can hear everything your housemates are doing when they come in drunk at 3am on a weekday, which means you cant sleep. Im not saying everyone has such a bad experience here but if you get stuck with housemates like mine who never seem to sleep or clean up after themselves its not the uni experience you are hoping for.

Best halls ever. Prime location, right by a bus stop, close to the beach, town centre and all importantly- the clubs and bars!

Halls is alright, but such a rip off for what you actually get given. Fire alarms are so annoying too! I didn't get on with my flat mates which probably made it worse, but I'd much prefer a house
