It was a really lovely place to stay at, as less than 30 people lived in the building, everyone knew everyone. Well furnished and cleaned, the kitchen is spacious and a good social space. The WiFi from my phone often disconnected though but that’s more of an eduroam problem than the hall’s fault. Overall it was a 5-star experience, especially for the money.

management is poor, complained about laundry room services, cause there is no laundry room in this hall. but the reception stuff just keep telling me that I need to walk to Cartwright Court to do my laundry, which means I need to walk about 15 minutes while carrying my clothes.

Great small halls, 10/10 location (better than talybont). Only social space is kitchens (no sofas or anything) but big rooms and desks and good storage.

Great location, on a street full of fast foods and restaurants. Close enough to the biggest/cheapest groceries and to university (10-15 mins walking). Rooms are big enough and very well furnished. On the other hand, the social space is a kitchen and all the parties happen there (which is a bit limiting). Kitchen is big and good though. Be carefull with thieves and robbers if you live ground floor or if you own a bycicle. Great social experience becuase you know every student in there (there are 30 of us) and you'll be likely to get a second-year house with some of them.
