5* Star Review – Gillows, Lancaster

“I stayed two months in Gillows during my research visit to Lancaster University.”

Paulinna Rantavouri June 2023

The location was perfect. It is near the food stores, the city centre, and the running routes. The bus station was only a few minuets walk. The staff, Rachel & Jordon & all the others, were great, always being friendly and helpful and taking care of everything. The laundry room worked well. I highly recommend this place for shorter stays too.

5* Star Review – Penny Street, Lancaster

“I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to make me feel at home!”

Cheyma Le Falher September 2022

I have lived in CityBlock for 3 years now. The first year, I lived in the Marton Street building and I lived in the Penny Street building for the other 2 years. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to make me feel at home!

Any maintenance issue was fixed within a few hours and any general issues I had were very quickly sorted. The flats and studios are really well furnished and have everything you need. The location is also ideal. I would definitely highly recommend CityBlock to anyone looking for both studios and shared flats in town!
