Stayed for one night - never, ever again! Room not even cleaned to a basic standard of cleanliness, expected to use previous occupants dirty bedlinen and towels. Took nearly 3 hours to get bedlinen changed and a further complaint to get bathroom cleaned. If you have a room at the back of Talybont Gate beware noise from boy racers going in and out of 24 hour McDonalds and KFC. Reception staff are friendly and helpful, cleaning staff could do a far better job. Shame as it's a bright, modern building and student flats are a well planned functional space.
Really well designed halls, short Walk from tesco, bed bigger than you think and TV is really a nice touch, sociable enough without being too noisy, except if your room is facing macdonalds then you get the bin men waking you up at 6 am, but the walk to uni is a good half an hour, if you are prepared to walk/have a bike/car then fine
Being in Taly Gate the first year after it's been build was definitely a great experience. I could not have imagined getting into better accommodation for that amount of money. Cardiff is known for its cheap accommodation, but it doesn't mean horrible conditions. The rooms are quite big, with the 3/4 bed, massive desk and waredrobe and a proper en-suite. The kitchen might be a hit and miss - some flats have a massive, square kitchen, however in our (and I guess most people's case) it was so narrow, it was difficult for more than two people to be in there. However, with the lounge (with a tv) being right next to it, it wasn't a problem. Overall, I couldn't be happier to be put in that accommodation.
The facilities at Taly Gate are superb and I have loved the social element I have been blessed enough to experience! It is quiet enough to study, but you can always guarantee someone will be out! Maintenance are quite slow to respond, but do a good job once they do arrive. Cleaners were very friendly, although rotas were somewhat unorganised at times
