Most helpful review

Overall great experience, friendly and helpful manager always willing to help. I had an exceptional stay at Davidson House during my time at Kingston University.The location couldn't be more convenient, as it's just a stone's throw away from a Sainsburys local and Kingston University campus. The standout feature for me was the manager's warm and helpful nature. From day one, they went out of their way to ensure I felt comfortable and settled. A hoover, mop and bucket were also provided by the manager to help our shared kitchen stay clean. One main area of improvement would have to be the heat. Unfortunately I had recorded indoor temperatues to be continuously around 30-38 degrees Celsius (86 - 100 Fahrenheit) within our bedroom and shared kitchen during the spring and summer months. I would recommend that each student purchases a tower fan to place within their rooms. As the heat can be a bit much.

I have lived at Davidson House for a month now and I’m very satisfied with my stay here so far. All the problems I’ve had were dealt with quickly and efficiently by the management who genuinely care about the over all wellness of the people in the building. The manger is friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Davison House to anyone who is studying at Kingston. The location is absolutely perfect.

Pretty alright but still a few issues to iron out such as the lack of 24/7 security during both term time and holidays. No ironing amenities were present as well.

Staying in this accommodation has been such a great experience! The receptionist is very welcoming and inclusive planning lots of social events for the building. The location is perfect as it’s only a 2 minute walk to Kingston Uni and extremely close to the town centre and the train station. The only negative thing I have to say is the Wi-Fi acts up from time to time but other than that I defo recommend!!

The package arrived unattended at the front desk over the weekend. Some repairs take a long time. The soundproof effect in the suite is not very good. People can hear talking in the corridor and the door closes loudly.
