    What amenities do you look out for when you choose your accommodation? Restaurants at your doorstep or do you prefer to home cooked food? In which case a supermarket is more important?

    Restaurants, supermarkets, cinema are all close to my university and the main town is a 20 minute walk.

    Don't forget home bargains

    Decent transport links nearby and decent prices shops like the ones above are pretty much the only amenities I care about as they're every day things I need. Anything else I'll travel for happily...but I'd hate to have to travel to do my food shopping all the time.

    Oh yes. I love Home Bargains. Sometimes it's much better than Poundland!

    That's handy to have so many local shops and entertainment venues nearby . Do you do much cooking in your accommodation?
