Most helpful review

nice apartment, I’m a Chinese student of UoA. I really like this apartment, because their workers are very friendly to Chinese, especially in some Chinese traditional festival, they will paste some paintings to celebrate Chinese festival that makes me feel like live in Chine.

They offer the best studio and best gym in Aberdeen! The staff are friendly and helpful. One thing hope can be fix in the future is the speed of Wi-Fi in the room at the corner is unstable.

The gym really is pretty great huh?! We take pride in our en-suites and studios as well as the site overall. Wi-Fi issues can usually be resolved by contacting Glide directly, give them a call or email, I'm sure they can resolve this issue.

Powis place was a very friendly, homely feeling place. Phil personally for me went up and beyond, always there for a chat when I needed and helpful in times that were more serious. Anyone who is thinking of staying at powis place I do highly recommend, and always remember to go down to the office for a daily chat :) thank you for all the kindness and welcoming feel.

Stayed her for my final 2 years in uni, I’d say it’s worth the money! Helped above and beyond for any issues, and the staff themselves are people who you could chat to. Recommended 100%!

An excellent facility with excellent staff. Would definitely recommend people to choose this student accommodation for their residence. Powis place has a 24 hour gym available as well, so if you ever need to blow off steam at any time it is perfect. The reception is kind and more than willing to sort out any sort of issue you may face and the free annual bus pass provided definitely seals the deal

The bus pass is certainly useful for anyone studying at RGU, there is also a cashback offer for anyone who feels they wouldnt benfefit from a bus pass. The gym is great too and just at the bottom of your stairs! Glad you are happy!!

My stay here so far has been spectacular. My room is just amazing and so spacious equipped with running hot water 24x7 and a radiator. The staff at Powis Place have been so helpful and supportive with respect to the resident's concerns and what not. This is an amazing place to live in! Home away from home!

I've been living at Powis Place for two years now and I am fully satisfied from my experience! The rooms are very nice and cozy, and the staff is amazing! They are all very helpful and friendly and make everyone's experience amazing daily!! Also a lot of social events are organised very often (currently online due to the Covid-19 pandemic), that give the chance to residents to get to know each other and have fun!! I 100% recommend it!!

The place is just 5-10 mins walking distance to lidls and Morrisons. The bus stop is just outside the accommodation. The people at the reception are friendly and often give out free goody bags and snacks for students. It is a nice place to stay.

Hello :-) Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we really do appreciate it! We do like to look after our students, and who doesn't love a wee freebie :-) the short walk to Lidl seems to be a favourite of some of the students, not sure if it has anything to do with their delicious in house fresh bakery...if you haven't tried their croissants yet, I would highly recommend it!

I can only be thankful to every worker of this accomodation, being at Powis Place felt like being at home thank to their huge kindness. The accomodation in full is magnificent, the gym is amazing and the rooms cannot be better. Personally I need to specially thank the receptionist Philip who helped me during my time in Powis Place and also during the COVID-19 pandemic becoming himself into my personal saviour which I will always remember and be thankful for.

Poor and unstable internet. Staff were not always in reception during working hours (I got a parcel during lockdown the time they reduced working hours from 11-3, it’s ok but the parcel arrived at 13:30 and no staff in the reception). My heater in large en-suite was never warm enough.

Great place to stay for university accommodation! The staff at reception are so friendly and helpful. It is in a great location as it's near to University of Aberdeen and a 30 mins bus ride/walk from the city centre (Union Street)! Also there is great transport links to Robert Gordon University. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Well planned and decent accommodation. Has a bus stop right behind the building for to Uni and city centre and even airport. I will opt for here again and again given the friendly nature of the on site employees
