The affordable and contemporary Lancaster houses are not the innovative township’s only draw. As one of the Philippines’ contemporary residential areas, LNC features various facilities that ensure every member of the Lancaster community enjoys life to the fullest.
One of these fully furnished facilities is the township’s multi-purpose, well-designed community center: the Leighton Hall. Leighton Hall is one of the most versatile community centers in Cavite. And for our Lancaster review, we focused on the different aspects of LNC’s unique Leighton Hall and uncovered why it’s a famous meeting point for residents and guests alike.
Exceptional Function Rooms
The quality of a community center’s function rooms is one of our ranking factors here at Land Estimate. Our review of Lancaster Cavite’s function rooms covers the pros and the cons.
From what we’ve seen, Leighton Hall’s function rooms are outstanding. They are as spacious as they are versatile, perfect for extravagant parties and private meetings alike.
The first function room is the Rivoli. The Rivoli Meeting Room’s tranquil atmosphere is the optimal setting for a professional meeting. It’s fully air-conditioned and decked out with the meeting essentials: markers, a whiteboard, and pencils. The Rivoli also features a water dispenser, with paper cups provided for your convenience.
But our review of Lancaster New City’s Rivoli would not be complete without looking at what’s lacking. The Rivoli could use various technologies for audio-video system integration. For example, LED displays and video conferencing equipment that could make meetings more seamless.
On the other hand, the function room that truly elevates Leighton Hall among the competition is the Buckingham Grand Function Room.
Comparing it with other function rooms in the region, we can say with confidence that it is one of the more appealing events places in Cavite. The grandiose space easily accommodates 250 guests, making it an instant choice for any type of large gathering, from a grand birthday celebration to an opulent wedding. It features a dressing room and pantry that guests can freely use. Even better, the posh space comes complete with a high-quality sound system and a clear LCD projector, which saves you from having to outsource a provider of audio-video equipment.
It was difficult to find a single flaw in the Buckingham. In fact, our feedback for Lancaster New City’s Buckingham function room is more of a problem for clients than a flaw in the venue itself. Because the Buckingham is so popular, you have to book your event months in advance to ensure that no one else beats you to your desired rental date.
Overall, our Lancaster New City review for the function rooms is positive. The two function halls both serve their individual purpose well, and the combination of roomy spaces and aesthetic interiors just serve to add more value to them.
The Station for Recreation
Lancaster New City is home to numerous establishments where the residents of the township, their guests, and tourists can visit for a good time. But as exceptional as these areas are, Leighton Hall is the classic setting for fun and entertainment. The English countryside-inspired clubhouse functions as an all-in-one setting for all kinds of leisurely activities ranging from sports competitions to social events held in Lancaster New City.
Leighton Hall proves that you don’t have to go far to have fun. The community center boasts a covered Activity Center, which helps to cultivate stronger relationships among the residents and guests of LNC.
The primary purpose of the Activity Center is to provide sports enthusiasts with a venue for all sports-related activities. It has two competition-level basketball hoops, along with a light and sound system to provide the complete basketball experience. There are also bleachers on the sidelines, where fans of the game can experience the action up-close and personal.
Lancaster’s Activity Center is also quite large in comparison to similar amenities in Cavite. We’ve noticed that there is more space to roam around compared to a normal basketball court.
But basketball isn’t the only sport you can enjoy at the Activity Center. Since it’s designed like a multi-purpose court, you can also play volleyball, tennis, badminton, and countless other sports here.
The Activity Center also doubles as an events place in Lancaster. It’s ideal for parties, concerts, and almost every other type of recreational gathering. As a social hub for a family-friendly community, it’s similar in design from the multi-purpose courts we’ve seen before, but its sheer size still puts it in a league of its own.
Enjoy a Well-Deserved Swim
Leighton Hall is also home to two of the most captivating swimming pools we’ve ever seen compared to the other communities we’ve visited. The first pool is a 4-feet outdoor pool for adults with water so clean, that you’ll want to jump right in. It is definitely one of the best amenities in Lancaster. A dip in this pool is the perfect getaway from the summer sun and a permanent source of fun for the avid swimmers in the community
The children’s pool, on the other hand, features the same sapphire-blue water albeit just a little more shallow to ensure the safety of the kids.
While the pools are relaxing sights on their own, the view from the structure is equally calming. Comfortable furniture adorns the poolside while green sceneries provide the perfect visual backdrop. Simply put, a dip in the pool or a pool party at Leighton Hall is an immersive sensual experience you shouldn’t miss.
A Versatile Lobby
We were pleasantly surprised during our visit to Leighton Hall when we found out that even the grand lobby could serve as a gathering area.
Adding to the list of event areas in Lancaster Cavite is the Leighton Hall lobby, a place where residents and their guests can bond and simply hang out amid an elegant space. Its structural and imposing chandelier and delicate floral centerpiece greet people upon entering, making them feel instantly welcome.
The lobby, similar to the Buckingham function room, can accommodate up to 250 guests. Also, you don’t have to worry about room temperature as four coolers consistently pump cold air for your comfort. The lobby is well-lit, too.
But for this part of our Lancaster New City review for Leighton Hall, we came to a consensus that the lobby isn’t as good a venue as the Buckingham. Renting Leighton Hall’s lobby is fine whenever the Buckingham is already booked, but if it’s not, it’s best to opt for the Buckingham.
Our Final Verdict
This year, we rated the houses in Lancaster New City as some of the ideal ones in the country. We gave them that distinction because of their features, and that is the same reason why we’re giving Leighton Hall a thumbs up.
Here’s a quick recap of our Lancaster 2018 review for Leighton Hall.
- Leighton Hall’s Buckingham Grand Function Room was a big reason for holding it in such high regard. Its visual appeal, functionality, and spaciousness are all a notch above any other function room we’ve seen so far. And for that reason, we believe that it’s one of the finest function rooms in the city.
- The community center’s swimming pools were also important factors in our review of Lancaster Leighton Hall. The cleanliness of Leighton Hall’s pools showed LNC’s commitment to keeping its property in perfect condition for residents and visitors.
- We also found it unique that a lobby by itself can serve as a venue for events. While we recognize the ingenuity of LNC’s management to offer Leighton Hall’s lobby as an event area, the Buckingham is far more versatile and an overall better choice if you’re planning bigger events in Lancaster.
- The activity center, despite its similarities to other covered courts, is still a fresh sight. The lighting is superb and the benches are durable, so the activity center holds its own compared to other courts.
Overall, our 2018 review of Lancaster Cavite finds Leighton Hall to be a one-of-a-kind community center, making it an integral part of the township. Its versatility, combined with LNC’s meticulous attention to detail and its consistent management of the property, make it the epitome of community centers.
