Location: Close to the uni and within walking distance to the nearby town centre where there were lots of shops and supermarkets. In Beeston there’re so many major chains that you won’t have to go to the city for much. A co-op is even opening opposite BGP. Social experience: the management is fantastic, they organise so many events throughout the year that are free and fun to participate in, including a welcoming carnival, Christmas cheer, Chinese New Year festivities, and a very affordable and value for money annual Ball. Social Areas: there’s only one common room and it’s above the management office, which doesn’t make it a very attractive location. It’s fairly large though, with cushions and a pool table. There’s also a cafe, I don’t know if you need to buy a coffee to stay there. There’re some tables here and there to sit on in spring / summer, though not enough. My room: got the basic one, adequate with a desk, chair, bed and cupboard. Mattress was clearly not new. Shared kitchen and toilets - the cleaning and maintenance crew are great, they do their job well and respond quickly. Value for Money: yup. WiFi: it’s okay. Nothing much to say.
