I have paid more for this accommodation than most at UoB- yet the halls are visibly older than other cheaper and similarly priced halls. There are cracks and rubble falling off some walls that have not been attended to. Guild students think it's fine to post a tidal wave of advertising spam through the letter box, making a mess. Rooms spacious and in a great area by a lake, though.
Ridiculously expensive and we don't even get a cleaner (the cleaning they did before we arrived wasnt up to scratch either, left with a dirty shower when we turned up). Maintenance takes days to arrive, even when our freezer wasn't working so everyone's food defrosted and both our toilets were not working and it took them days to fix it which isn't on for the money we pay. The location is good, but that doesn't justify the cost for me.
