It was very clean and spacious, with nice sized rooms. However quite pricey and doors lock automatically and are supposed to be kept shut, which makes it slightly more difficult to be social.

Nice accommodation but overpriced. Well kept and clean and conveniantly close to campus and town. The noise curfew is a bit annoying and is not as lively as other accommodations.

Good size rooms, nice bathrooms but quite noisy and very hot. Not as sociable as other halls. Good kitchen space but lacks a nice living room. Excellent location.

Great location and best facilities! Such a lovely room and en suite is such a bonus. Beds are comfy and workspace is really good. Lots of storage. Not the most social of halls and residential advisors can be quite strict too. Halls also get very hot in the summer.

The location was ideal being right next to campus and the reception was a fun, social space to play pool, table tennis or play station. The rooms were quite small but had lovely showers and a desk to work at which was handy, however the price per week for the accommodation is far too high for students and is concerned only for profit. The rooms also got extremely hot, especially at the start and end of the year, with limited space for windows to open, air conditioning would have been ideal.

A really nice place to stay, central on campus, takes only a few minutes to walk to lectures, shops and the library. Also only 15 minute walk down the hill into town and the train station. The common room is really nice to both work in, and play pool. All the staff are lovely and accommodating on reception too! Nice room, good desk for working, a really lovely bathroom with huge shower and spacious in general but bed is slightly uncomfortable and I needed a mattress topper. Another issue is the fact the accommodation is very expensive, both for the room and washing facilities, it costs well over the amount student loan gives.

Good location but not much outdoor space, cleaning staff can be iffy, always boiling as well, but rooms are decent quality. A safe choice but nothing amazing

It has a nice sized kitchen, clean living area Sofa is quite uncomfortable though and it is hard Rooms are a good size but little ventilation. Lots of events within Crown Place, great for integrating with others. Extremely friendly people at service desk. Internet cuts out at times very annoying

Love the location and the effort to organise many socials! Laundry room is small and machines don't work during certain hours.

Crown Place is many things. Home from home, a place to make new friends. A students first taste of independence, free from the reign of their parents. Crown is in a perfect location, the amount of times I went for naps between lectures. The reception was a hoot, mostly couldnt fault it. Mostly. For what I was paying I expected a hotel standard room, it was nice sure, but it was a sauna with poor wifi. And not exactly the most social of places, sure you'd see mates out and about or using the dreaded circuit laundry, but apart from that it was pretty poor compared to carnatic. Overall I give crown a solid 6.5/10.

Very good quality rooms. Fairly isolating in rooms, not much social space. Good at organising social activities to get everyone to engage in. Very good location for university and the city centre. Laundry facilities fairly poor, need many more washers/dryers to cater for whole halls.

Great location as it's within uni campus, so you can easily get to lectures and into town. Quite modern compared to other halls and has nice common area. There's cleaners that come in throughout the week. Overall it is a good accommodation, but it's way overpriced and the laundry room could be improved.

All the accommodation at Liverpool is overpriced. However, crown place is central to campus, en suite for both double and single rooms and offers studio rooms which include a TV and kitchen area which makes the cost slightly less painful. It is EXTREMELY hot all year round, which isn't too devastating in winter but for your own sanity pack lots of t-shirts and shorts for the less cold months. There isn't any real study space which a lot of the other halls offer, but it is in a central location to both libraries so it's not too much hassle going over to get your work done. It's designed in blocks, A-H, and your room card will allow you into your block and your flat. This is great for security but not so good when you've turned up at pres a little late, no ones checking their phone and they can't hear you knocking on the flat door to get in. The RAs who exist purely to ruin your fun at pres are a lot less strict at crown in comparison to some other halls so that is a bonus at least. The reception area at crown is the only social area, it has a ping pong table and a pool table but no one really uses it that much since it involves going outside to get to and as you'll learn very quickly, Liverpool is absolutely Baltic. The rooms themselves are a good size. It's worth paying the extra for the double because you do actually get a bigger desk and more wardrobe space as well as the bigger bed and lets face it you're probably never paying back all your loan anyway so make the most of it.

Very modern sophisticated, clean accommodation. Halls between 5-8 people sharing. Perfect if you like to socialise with others but also like your own space as you have you’re own en suite bathroom but a shared kitchen and living area. Perfect location as it is on campus so would be a maximum 10 minute walk to lectures and only a 15/20 min walk into the city centre which is perfect for nights out. There is always lots of fun events going on which involves blocks getting together for parties or in activities such as go karting.

The rooms and facilities were lovely, very clean and well looked after. Perfect location, on campus and 10 minute walk into city centre. Rather strict on noise etc.

Great location in the centre of campus, with good facilities however very expensive and overheated . Reception staff are very friendly and helpful.

Good location as it is right on campus only takes me 5-10 mins to walk to lectures depending what building they are in. Big kitchen with enough room for everyone, kitchens and bins are cleaned regularly which is good

Very good, friendly atmosphere Flats of 3-8 people, I live with 8 and love it Rooms are massive but pricing is expensive at 145pw (however, this is one of the cheaper options compared to the other halls) Reception staff are lovely and the table tennis is amazing I am there all the time One down side is the RA’s - Im lucky enough to not live with one but a few of my friends do and they hate it as they put a downer on everything.

Great accommodation in a good location as very close to the university but the room your in feels a little isolated. There is communal areas which makes up for this.

Ideal location, never more than a 5 minute walk to lectures. 24 hour security so it was never a problem if you got locked out of your room. The only downside I would say is the social life. Compared to other halls where there is easy access in and out of other people’s flats, Crown can be quite secluded to to all flats having fire doors with only people with access keys to those flats being allowed in and out.

Crown place is a centred around the campus and is often no more than 5 minutes to your lecture theatre. The gardens are kept in good condition and are very social. The cleaning staff are also very helpful and polite, wpuld recommend to first years for sure.

They facilities are really good and if anything goes wrong they come and fix it's asap. Only real problem is if you are left with flatmates that you don't particularly get along with it's quite difficult to socialise with other floors which can make it quite lonely.
