It's a great place near Cardiff University with an excellent location near the city with adequate room size. The price is quite expensive compared to other accomodations however. Management wise, there is no one on site in the afternoon and night, so if you locked yourself out, you would have to wait for a security from another city to come and open the door for you for 30 pounds. We are also not allowed to open the windows fully for the summer, therefore the ventilation you would have is small which runs a risk of overheating in your room. I would say there are better accomodations with cheaper prices and better on site management out there than here.

I booked and paid three years in the accommodation, but because of Covid, I could only complete a year and a half. The building installations are very complete and the location very convenient. The property management have been always very attentive, helpful and social. They made a huge effort on moving all my belongings this last year to the new room I booked. At all times I felt I could completely trust the new staff, which was a relief. The technical service is also very helpful and efficient, the same day you ask them for help they try to repair everything you need. Both of the property management staff (Karen and Richard) make a huge effort on making you feel just as home. I am extremely pleased to them! A very different subject is the inflexible position of student accommodation landlords of not refunding some money if there is any problem in occupying the room, even if it is a global pandemic, like other accommodations have done. In my opinion, is unfair and even unethical.

Glendower House is great. Despite the communal areas being closed for most of my stay, I have made friends with lots of people. Also like to mention the staff. The maintenance man and property manager are not only great at their jobs, they are also very accommodating and are a pleasure to speak to. I have had no issues during my time here and would highly recommend the accommodation to both local and international students.

The accommodation is at a prime location near to Cardiff law school and the city centre; it’s about 5 mins to both Tesco express and sains (closer than crown accom IMO); plus the manager Karen is so lovely literally any problems you have she will try her best to help; the wifi is a bit slow at times but other than that 10/10 There’s not that many people in the accom building so it’s not too noisy

It is an accommodation perfectly located, close to the city center, Bute park, to the students union and to other uni accommodations. It is perfect if you are looking for an all in one. It has different spaces such as a cinema and game room to spend time with your friends. The study room is also great, it is really nice to study there, and you can also access the gym which is well equipped. On the other hand, studios are great, you have all the space you need. I would really recommend it. They look brand new, really good conditions. Also if you need to study or a bit of quiet to work you won’t have any kind of problems. Finally, it is really helpful to have people as Karen working in the building , she will help you with anything you need and will solve any of your doubts at any time.

I think Glendower house is really geographically located, just five minutes away from the city centre. it's a little far from university, there are a lot of online classes this year so this would not be an issue for me this year, and Reception is very enthusiastic. And they are actively solve the problems in life for us. Anyway, I'm very happy to live here.

A unique extraordinary place for students who looking for a quiet and clean place. The especial key point hear is that the manager try to create a friendly atmosphere. She is so kind and responsible to the residence. This place also have a great experienced maintenance team, which always solve any technical issue in your flat immediately. During this pandemic, the Covid measurements followed in this place at the highest standard.

I an am international student and I absolutely recommend Glendower House to any students who are finding a place to stay in Cardiff. The house is only a 7 mins walk into the city centre and it is quite close to many areas of the University (It was only a 11 mins walk to my department). There are many facilities in the building including a cinema, game room, gym, lounge areas and study spaces. As someone who is living abroad in Cardiff I am confident that you will be very well taken care of here as Karen and Richard (Who are in charge of running and maintaining the house) are both very friendly, accommodating and caring. Karen (she runs the place) is usually at receptions every week day and always ready to offer help (even if it's just to have a chat!). I am really enjoying my stay here at Glendower House and I am sure you will too.
