Featured review

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

Talybont gate is great! There's a great balance between being quiet and social! Tescos exta is so close which is great but the main building is a good 30/20 min walk which does get annoying every day!

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.

Lovely Building, and within main uni complex, but distance to laundry services is quite far, and the quality of cleaning/maintenance is not great.

Stayed here for first year. Bit of a trek to lectures, but by far the nicest Talybont residence.

Very far away from uni and very expensive. Rooms and en suites very nice. No social life at all.

Best halls in terms of space, toilets/bathrooms to yourself, secure key cards and a great experience.
