About Merlin Heights

Leicester is a city and the county town of Leicestershire. Most of its population is youngsters, making it a suitable destination for international students. 

Merlin Heights by Collegiate is a student housing in Leicester that offers studios and en-suites. The studios come in five styles; Gold Studio, Gold Plus Studio, Silver Studio, Bronze Studio, and Platinum Studio. As for ensuites, they come in four styles; Gold Ensuite, Silver Ensuite, Bronze Ensuite, and Platinum Ensuite. All room types feature a small double bed, a fully-fitted kitchen, a wardrobe with three draws, a study disk with a chair, a 32 inch TV, and an ensuite shower room. 

The property has a variety of facilities and services. The facilities include high-speed Wi-Fi, all-inclusive bills, security monitoring, and a sky lounge. Other services include study facilities, a gaming area, exclusive social events, on-site laundry, and secure bike storage. 

The residence is located at Bath Lane and is very well-situated because it is only a short walk from Leicester city centre. It is in the heart of life and has many exciting and lovely destinations nearby. It is also surrounded by many nice eatery spots. If you’re on a diet or just like to eat healthily, The Detox Shack is a short walking distance from the building and it offers healthy meals like salads, smoothies, raw juices, and wraps in a cosy atmosphere. If you’re craving a juicy steak, we suggest you check out Steak and Lounge Restaurant 15 minutes away from the property. It is a large steakhouse offering dishes like burgers in a contemporary space. Altro Mondo is another nearby diner serving classic Italian cuisine plates in a casual spot. When you need to go grocery shopping, Tesco Express is 13 minutes away and it offers various products at good prices at your disposal. In the morning before heading out to the university campus, we suggest you take a refreshing walk at Fosse Recreation Ground which has spacious green fields and walking trails in addition to playgrounds. When you need to go working out to stay in shape, The Gym Group Leicester Highcross is only ten minutes away and it is fully equipped with the latest athletic tools. During the weekend, there are many activities you can do; some include going on a shopping spree at Haymarket Shopping Centre that has plenty of shops and stores; having a night out with your friends where you watch the latest blockbuster movies at Showcase Cinema de Lux Leicester or visit the Leicester Museum and Art Gallery where you can explore the local history of the city.

Landlord is being very unreasonable with tenants at the moment, students should not be fighting so hard to have rent reduction absolutely ridiculous it is not at all unreasonable to ask as tenants are not even staying there right now due to government regulation of the national lockdown, quite shocked how many one star rating Merlin Heights have too , they really do not care about the tenants all they care about is the money , greedy greedy people!

During the coronavirus pandemic we have not been refunded back our money for the last instalment when the majority of student accommodations have been. This is a disgrace and now I have received an email saying I will not get my full refund back for my end of year deposit when I have cleaned it immaculately both the kitchen and my en suite room aswell as the corridor exactly how It had been when I first arrived if not cleaner and they are deducting 60 pounds for no apparent reason.

I lived here between 2019/2020, and due to COVID-19 I had to leave the accommodation In march (tenancy until July.) I was 1 of hundreds of students that had to leave due to this pandemic, yet although no one living in the accommodation and non of my property being there, they still tried to make us pay the last rent instalment which was £1.8k plus depending on which type of room you stayed in. The amount of stress students were going through due to this, having to take exams as home and then having to worry about money on top of this, appalling service from Merlin. Care more about the money than their residents! would NOT recommend staying here.

I’ve been living here for my first year of university, and I recommend this accommodation for anyone looking for a place to stay in Leicester! The staff are all very welcoming and it’s an overall clean and modern place to reside. They have recently gone under new management which is superb and if you are worried about safety it is a safe place to stay at, it is under supervision 24-7.
