Read Talybont Court Reviews
Never again. My radiator has not worked since I have moved in (6 months ago). Even after telling people at the reception desk multiple times, nothing has been done. They were basically blaming me for not going to the desk more than twice, but how many times does it take for them to actually fix this issue? Because apparently twice isn't enough! As a result of this, I had to find alternative accommodation during the heavy snow period. Staff at reception are rude and have a terrible attitude towards the students. Their customer service is ABSOLUTELY APPALLING because it doesn't actually sound like they want to help you. They instead make sarcastic comments. The room space is good, I especially like the idea of the corner desk because it gives you enough space for work! The bathroom is nice, especially the shower compared to north and south. Wifi hardly connects, so be prepared to use all of your data!! Court lacks the social aspect; it gets so quiet! That was a BIG issue for me.
Talybont court is a great and I've had an incredible year here. The room is spacious and well laid out, the kitchen and social area are amazing and have had the time of my life here. The house keeper we kinda refer to as witch but as long as you keep everything clean it's alright. It's about 15 minute walk to su and a 5 minute walk to small Tesco or 15 minute walk to big Tesco. Saying all this all the different accommodations at Cardiff are good, my girlfriend is in taly north and loves it there.( Taly south is always partying. Taly gate is really modern but far away.)The truth is wherever you end up it's the people who make it, so don't worry, it'll be great!
These halls were perfect for my first year. The rooms are really big and the kitchen is ideal for sociolaising and cooking. I couldn't emphasise enough that these are great halls, despite everyone saying they are unsociable- if you want to meet people, you definitely will. The wifi is reliable and the security are fab (they do shots with you.) The house keeper has been nicknamed 'the witch' but the cleaners are all friendly and do a great job.
It's a really nice accommodation. It's like a 10 minute walk to the SU and a 5 minute walk to Tesco. The staff is friendly and always ready to help you if there is a problem or you simply want to ask about something. The rooms are quite big compared to other uni halls and bathrooms are en-suite. It's not as social as Talybont South but you can still socialize with your housemates. It's definitely worth the money!
The bedrooms are a nice size with a massive desk and ensuite bathrooms! There are lovely, big kitchens with a dining area (sofas and bar stools) and it's quite elegant looking. Slightly expensive but very very worth it! Also it's in a prime location because it's the Talybont complex which is closest to town and lectures - only a 15min walk to lectures and 20mins to town.
Talybont court in my opinion is the best out of the 4 talybont residences, this is mainly due to location and the facilities you get in your room for the price (huge kitchen, full sized bathroom, enormous desk). contrary to what most say if you want to socialise it is just as social as any other halls, you just have to walk around and look for people with open flat doors! Its very close to the main campus and also close to heath park for healthcare students. Yes the management can be strict, but if you were like me and had really dirty flatmates and lived on the ground floor where idiots would knock on your window then it was needed to keep the order, there not pushy just make sure everything runs smoothly. cleaners are fabulous but beware of the females, they can be a little mean in terms of cleaning when your kitchen is a mess like mine. Overall I love it here!
Really nice room with huge desk, same goes for the en suite bathroom, really nice, far better than tally south. Internet is always dogey but that's the same all over the uni. Wish my flatmates were a little more laid back and up for chilling but they're still very nice. Not as party mad as I would like, south is better for social gatherings.
My experience there was awful and I would never recommend it to anyone. It is extremely expensive for the awful service and shoddy building works which remains the case with builders constantly being there and walking into rooms without being granted permission. Problems are never sorted. Anyone moving there for the following year, I wish them luck.
BIG TIP: GO TO TALYBONT. Either North, South, or Court, it's the epicentre of 1st year uni. Court is one of the pricier halls, and you can tell. The rooms and facilities are far nicer than you'll get in north or South, but the staff are stricter and I was put into house 3 unfortunately so was with majoritally postgrads, although house 1 and 2 were more social.
My light flickers, hot water is temperamental, the restrictor on the window is actually against health and safety as it opens all of 2cm, i feel like i can't breathe. The staff are rude, take over and think they own the place when they dont, and they dont even live there. sorry but i dont think I'm giving four THOUSAND six hundred pounds of my money for this s***.
comfortable rooms, living room not great, very grumpy staff, but most memorably a distinct lack of any positive atmosphere compared to other halls, perhaps due to there being nowhere to socialise, as well as strict security.
