Most helpful review

I think the accommodation is great, the staff are very helpful and it's always clean and tidy. A shared common space would be nice as there are a lot of events but not always space for them. Otherwise I really enjoy staying here :)

I am happy either Cambrian Point. There are a fee things that need improvement. For example the dryers don't dry clothes properly. The showers could also be hotter as well. Other than that it's clean and well maintained.

I have stayed in Cambrian Point for three years - from 2021 until 2024, and in the beginning it was excellent. Friendly staff who would not hesitate to help you out, and who you could say hello to without fail. There was even one I saw on the train back from my dad's house, and he did his job of being welcoming and friendly even on the train just before Newport! This could not be further from the truth now. The staff, except for Hena who has never changed and always been polite, are the rudest people I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. No smiles, no help, and a general sense that they don't have a clue - when inquiring about a package that was going to be delivered because the saferoom was locked shut and the screen was broke (yet another common problem here, things tend to break and not get fixed for months on end), to put it simply, I have never been patronised and treated more rudely in my life. I would rather sleep rough than pay £150/wk to be trapped here.

The strategic location of this student accommodation ensures that residents have easy access to everything they need, making daily life remarkably hassle-free. I would also like to particularly mention the experience team member, Abhinav's eagerness to help is a game-changer for the student community. He goes above and beyond to assist with any queries or issues, making residents feel valued and supported. His commitment to ensuring the well-being and satisfaction of residents is truly appreciated, and it significantly enhances the overall living experience at Cambrian Point.

It's a very affordable student accommodation with all basic facilities that a stubldent might require. Only thing is the location, its about 30 minutes walk to the city centre. But bus Is available. Everything else is great. I may recommend having a common room for all students to hang out.

Amazing experience - clean place, very accessible to local amenities. I am impressed by the hospitality of the the Student Experience team, particularly Abhinav who goes above and beyond his duties to make sure the students have their issues sorted and is always thorough, attentive and amicable. The breakfast organised by the team is also a fun addition, I mean who doesn't like a croissant and juice. Also, love that there are vegan options and the team is sensitive to people with food allergies. Can't recommend this place enough!

Cambrian Point is truly a five-star experience. The staff are incredibly welcoming, making my transition as an international student effortless. The rooms are spacious, well-furnished, and exceptionally maintained. Its prime location, just a quick walk from the Cardiff Business School and local amenities, is a major plus. For the quality of service, convenience, and comfort, Cambrian Point offers unmatched value. Highly recommended!

I think it is a very warm accommodation. The reception will respond to us quickly if we have any problem. I also enjoy the festoval event they organised.

0 value for money. The laundry alot of times took the coins but didnt deliver the cards, and the staff didnt help at all in that. Lift being a utility that students pay for was unavailable for the whole tenancy, no concession in rent was given. Staff management regarding security was poor. Wifi was very poor and was the worst when it came to end of tenancy. Some of the night staff was very rude and arrogant to alot of students.

Where do i start with Cambrian Point? I moved in as an undergrad and immediately prospects were dismal. Before i came, i was forced to do a room change in which i was coerced to pay for a larger room, then i arrived there and just everything went downhill. I was paying £162 a week for a room that i did not like or want and a laundry room and that was about it. Within literal days of me moving in, one of my flatmates moved out, citing "isolation" as her reason for going, I myself was incredibly lonely and isolated and stuck in this tenancy agreement with this vulture like company. Two of my other flatmates didn't even want to live in Cambrian Point, they had been tricked into it after putting in their deposit for other student accoms which were not actually available despite being advertised as such and had felt pressured into accepting the tenancy. This place is like a prison, please, don't live here. The social isolation is too much for any average person and its not worth the £££.

I wouldn’t recommend staying here, it’s been a horrific experience. There hasn’t been one day of peace whether it be from the loud building site next door (which apparently has been here for a while) or the constant ‘contractors on site’ disturbing you in the flat and rooms. Making you constantly on edge whether there’s going to be a stranger at your door, especially during a pandemic. You also can’t get your parcels til after 5pm which is a major inconvenience especially for us who work as well as attend uni. The wifi is a good speed though, so you can’t fault that. I would recommend going into private education, but I’d stay far away from Cambrian point.

I owe cambrian point £1089.00 yet every time I try to pay they never even pick up the phone, they are sending me constant letters to pay yet I try to email them and get no response, this has been going on for weeks now, coronavirus or not I don't give a damn, you have chosen to not even divert your phone calls. How do you expect me to pay when you wont even pick the damn phone up? I was told before leaving tenancy that you would be in touch with a link for me to pay online due to covid19 well wheres that link then. Stop sending me threats and respond to your damn emails. Not only that I used to be in Liberty Court their other accomidation but I had to move becuase I had a drug dealer in my flat sniffing coacine from the kitchen tables! Rather than let me out of tenancy they transferred me to Cambrian point. Terrible company never again

The actual accommodation was good, with it having ample space (for the deluxe room) and a large area of social interactions. The problems arise with the way it was run. The security were there less than half the time which was disconcerting. The elevator broke and took nearly 9 weeks to fix which is especially annoying if you live on the 5th floor and need to bring your shopping up. Furthermore one staff member leaked all personal information to every tenant including names, phone numbers, home addresses, DOBs etc which was brought up immediately with them. Followed by a pathetic answer for regarding it as a mistake. The laundry facilities provided by circuit laundry were poor and cost £4.30. With that being said the actual facility I cannot fault, as it did feel secure. If it was £1500 cheaper it would be worth the money but with the failures listed above I simply cannot recommend this to anyone. There is a deep issue with the management of this accommodation and could be much better.

Really nice halls compared to the university owned ones. The rooms are very spacious with double beds and en-suite rooms. You’re provided with a flat screen tv which covers the tv license so no need to worry about that. You are given a hoover, ironing board also. However, the social aspect of it doesn’t match to talybont. If you’re a fresher and want to be going out every night then I wouldn’t suggest these halls. It’s quiet and it’s mainly full of international students. The location is around a 10 minute walk to lidl and 15 minute walk to uni depending on where you’re lectures are based. It’s a bit out of the way but it’s situated within a nicer location of Cathays. The staff are very friendly and will help with any queries with your room or communal spaces.

Well maintained halls with a lift, spacious kitchen and spacious bedrooms. Double bed and decently sized ensuite with a well working shower. A bit pricey but worth it. Near the town centre (20 min walk) and very near business school. No shortage of people wanting to go out/have pres but also not too loud

I was originally worried that this accommodation wouldn't be social and would be full of internationals, but I've only been here 2 months and love it!! I have to admit it's not as social as taly, but there's always someone to go out with. The rooms are lush compared to some accommodation, every room has a double bed, ensuite and spacious desk. Security on site are also fab and we have cleaners every Thursday! It's a little more expensive than some, but I can't fault it!

Expensive but good management and the double beds are a massive benefit. Spacious rooms but little cupboard space in the kitchen which is annoying. Lack of a cleaner is not so good. Close to uni and shops but a bit of a walk from central Cardiff. Overall a good place to live :)
