Couldn't ask for a better location on campus, catered life makes the social life so much better and easier to meet everyone in the hall

Would not recommend Damp in room which was just painted over Electrical fire due to heater swich. Heater swich was reported to be not working. But was told to turn off a fuse box. Turned it back on and I was on fire. Reception staff can be a bit off WiFi slow in evenings No social events planed as a hall even though it says that on the website.

Room had terrible damp and the space under the "lift up" bed was literally just concrete from the foundation underneath, not even a bit of floorboard or something! Couldn't open any of the windows in the flat - not even in the kitchen which didn't have working extractor fans for months! Things just fell off the walls whether it was shelves or towel rails (not from misuse, we're talking second week) and it was horrid As another review said, don't live here if you enjoy the internet - WiFi and wired internet was awful and if you complained you were told to contact an external company who did nothing as they wanted at least 8,000 other students to complain first to make it worth their time! Only thing that makes it worth it is the atmosphere and the staff, otherwise overpriced and generally crappy!

Great for the sea view, but that's all. Accommodation vastly overpriced. I had leaking windows and nothing was done, bathroom out of order for months and months, due to severe leak from the roof and prices once promised for the following year, changed with no notice or reason as to why.

Very poor. Damp in my room which was only painted over and a house mate had an electrical fire due to the heater swich failing. Had been reported but they said just turn it off at the fuse box..... a few weeks later turned it back on a it caught fire!! Reception staff can be a little off and don't seam very helpful. WiFi is slow on the evenings. Expensive when compared to private accommodation. Would not recommend! !!!!!

I have lived in three different halls, Alex, Cwrt Mawr and Penglais Farm. All were great in different ways.
