Trefloyne is an awesome hall - It is very well priced for Aber, and is alot better compared to accommodation of the same price. You get a recently refurbished kitchen, which has a fridge and an freezer, so it is more than enough for everyone to store everything. It also has a sofa in the kitchen (unlike some of the seafront accommodation) and the walls have plaster on (unlike Cwrt Mawr). The internet is good, and you get wifi pretty much everywhere. The wired internet is good too, and you can get 100 up 100 down most of the time. The hall has 3 "wash rooms" - a room with a toilet and a sink, a room with a bath, toilet and sink, and a room with just a shower. They are also sinks in the bedrooms for cleaning teeth etc... It is located really close to the arts center and the SU, so its good for social events, and the kitchen makes it good for house party's. However, if you are going into town, you will want to get a taxi, as it is quite a walk up, especially when you are drunk.
Trefloyne was good, clean, well maintained, specious accommodation for a reasonable price, clean, with an on campus location ideal for lectures but not so much for the town or social life activities/ nights out etc. Internet was fast but torrents were blocked!
Trefloyne is one of the better 'cheap' halls. The rooms are definitely the biggest (apart from Fferm Penglais bedrooms) and you get a bath and a sofa, which a lot of halls in Aber don't get. The wifi can be patchy but there are wired connections in each room and it never affected my ability to work. You get a lot of kitchen space (cupboards are massive) however there's not a lot of fridge/freezer space, but I'm guessing that's the same in most halls. Porters/maintenance team are usually fairly quick to sort out problems and you're in a good location to get to lectures, the local mini-supermarket (CKs) and even the Llanbadarn campus fairly quickly (and without having to tackle any of Aber's notorious hills). It's about 20 mins walk to Llanbadarn or into town, so on rainy days/nights out this means getting a taxi, but they're only £1/person if you're sharing with friends. The parking is terrible, so avoid bringing a car if you're in halls.
