Excellent experience living here and you couldn't be in a better position, it's the only halls with two bus stops just to itself and just outside the door so even better! Perfect positioning, social space is amazing and up to date but no many people went down there until the football was on, plenty of girls there for the boys and plenty of people friendly enough to just enjoy life while your there, it goes too quickly!

The bedrooms were a good size, and the kitchen space was also not too bad, however, the amount of times the fire alarm went off was ridiculous! Some of the staff that worked there were nice but some of the others weren't. The 2 ladies doing the end of year inspection on my floor had broken one of my dishes and didn't even apologise! The common room was big but there really wasn't much to do.

Rubbish internet. Good sized room and en-suite. No cleaner for the communal areas in each flat. No hoover for each flat. Rubbish washing machines and tumble dryers. Modern common room on ground floor.

When I started Lyme we had no wifi for a month, which sucked. I know they've sorted that all out now though. It also gets extremely hot on the top floors, so bring a fan with you, by the time you get to Bournemouth they'll probably be sold out everywhere. You don't need to buy wristbands for events in advance, no matter what anyone tells you, you can decide when you get there when you can actually see what other people are doing. No TV aerial sockets, so pack a mobile aerial if you plan to watch anything.

As a parent I am disgusted with the service provided at Lyme Regis house.My son is staying in halls nearly 4 weeks and still not supplied a cooker in there flat to make themselves a meal. They are quick enough to take the rent. Dispite ringing daly And leaving messages not one has yet called back. they have not met the standards within the national code set out. The front reception staff are rude and unhelpful?

On arrival the kitchen was not clean, Fridge was disgusting had to clean as well as the freezer, Oven again had to be cleaned. Table was broken in the kitchen area. Looked like the only thing which was cleaned was he floor!!! Curtains were not even hanging right looks like part of the rod had come down as well an not enough clips, Everywhere looked like it could do with painting. No bowl or plug in the sink and appears not to have the basics you would expect in a self contained kitchen ie kettle, toaster. Bedrooms need a good lick of paint on the walls, bathroom again looked it had not been cleaned the ceiling had brown patches on brown. For the amount we paid deposit and a month rent in advance I expected a higher standard!!! However good location.
