Featured review

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.

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
