Most helpful review

Near a lot of other students and the lidl. Walk through the park to get to uni is very pleasant. Not that close to town but most of what we need is nearby. Building is pretty nice, though walls don't seem that thick because we've had several noise complaints about parties. Shower water temperature and pressure is great.

Hector Boece is certainly not terrible, but for £113 a week the value for money is shocking. The bedroom is tiny with a single bed although a very large wardrobe is provided. The kitchen Is appalling, the table is like a breakfast bar and goes halfway across the main kitchen area so only 2 people max can comfortably cook at the same time. Half the kitchen area is a seating area however it’s only a 2 person couch so it’s pretty pointless. If it was £90 a week I would be over the moon but it’s a premium to pay for what you get. However, it’s surrounded by students, there’s an on site centre which has a shop and bar/restaurant as well as activities and things to do. There are direct buses to the city centre, it’s a 10 minute walk to Lidl, a 20 minute walk to uni and it’s right beside Seaton Park which is lovely especially around the start of semester 1. Overall, not terrible but photos don’t do justice of how tiny this place is!!
