I have lived at the Maltings for 3 years now. The location is great but the staff are better, especially Debbie, Rebecca, Dave. They are always happy to help and provide great support to all the students. If you are considering studying in Colchester, look no further.
Brilliant student accommodation with well maintained facilities and lovely modern rooms. The Maltings is in a convenient location in close proximity to several amenities. The staff are absolutely amazing, extremely organised and helpful! The reception team always have fun games, competitions and freebies which help to create a vibrant and welcoming environment. I am enjoying my time here and will be sad to leave once I conclude my studies in Essex.
Great place, highly recommended for students. There are no annoying noises either during the day, so you can study well, or at night, so you can sleep well. The rooms are complete and have all the essential services and are also comfortable and nice, ideal for spending even long periods. The staff is excellent, I was 14 days in self-isolation and they made me feel welcomed and they always brought me the shopping or food delivered, because I could not leave the house. If I could I would return here every year.
The Maltings is an exceptional accommodation, very well managed by Lorraine and her team providing student with a safe and friendly environment which helped me focus my attention on my Studies with no worries about my surroundings. I recommend this accommodation to everyone as it is also less than 15 mins from the University of Essex Colchester Campus. I really enjoyed my stay the Maltings Lorraine and her Management team were always offering a helping hand when need. Warm and Lovely Environment they have created.
The maltings is a great place to live, it’s on the pricey side however the place itself and location is great and definitely worth the accommodation. The management, and staff are great. Lorraine and Debbie are my favourite, new addition to the team Michelle is amazing too :), always greeting me with a huge smile. They make me feel like family. Definitely disappointed towards how much the mangement has been bashed. Smh fix up
I have been living at the Maltings for over two years now and I have just extended for another year. The accommodation is everything a student needs. Spacious rooms, communal areas, and walking distance from a train station, Colchester town and most importantly University of Essex. The staff are efficient and quickly sort out any problems that arise. Although, the accommodation is quite expensive within the local area, you get what you pay for and won't be disappointed.
Great location, not far from the university. Really helpful that all bills are included and that there are reception staff are available to take in post. It’s easy to submit maintenance issues and they usually get completed really quickly.
The Maltings is a chilled spot for university students. It’s quite modern compared to other accommodations but I believe the prices could be slightly lower or at least more can be included in the rent, such as regular cleaners in the flats. The staff are very friendly are they are always willing to help solve your problems. I would give the Maltings 100% ratings but I just feel the price of rent could offer just a little bit more. Nonetheless, I would still have the Maltings as my first choice over the Hythe mills or anywhere else in Colchester.
We stayed in a Double studio and loved that it was all self contained as we were a couple, it also came with a car park which was great as we had a car. Its close enough to the uni and the walk is nice, and the co-op and pizza hut are downstairs, which was really handy. Tescos is also not to far away if you wanted a bigger shop. The staff were all lovely and were helpful whenever we had a problem. They also get to know you and remember your names which makes a difference as you feel more valued.
This is a comfortable and pristine accommodation - the place is well looked after and the management team are very approachable and caring. Very pleased with my choice. They have also been very on point with handling this pandemic - ensuring that surfaces are cleaned daily. Great job & thank you !
This is great accommodation, there is always something to do, the sense of community is just what I needed when being away from home. The rooms are well equipped and very clean, all communal spaces are kept really clean. Staff are always available to help with any problems whether that be with the accommodation or with university.
