The Sidings staff are very welcoming and accommodating throughout Covid. Maintenance of appliances going wrong are fixed as soon as possible which is great! However it would be great to receive emails telling us when parcels have arrived ( similar to how Glasney/ campus does it).

Q
Is there a great deal of house from the trains?

The Train Station is based right next to the accommodation and so it makes it very easy to access Falmouth as well as the main line to London.

The staff are great here and easy to get on with. The university is a short 15 minute walk and the wooded area you get to walk through is very pretty. Train station runs alongside the accommodation, which is great for getting to falmouth or truro. However as someone living on the side by the trains I can say this can be quite loud (especially since they run from 6am to past 11pm) and can disrupt your sleep. The only other issue here is the wifi which is slow unless you pay quite a lot for faster speeds, and you can't get wifi in the laundry room where the app requires it. Personally I've enjoyed my stay and I'm glad I stayed here instead of at Glasney.

Social experience is low because I experienced the place during lockdown. Basic wifi said to be slow for some people, but I had no problems. Overall great place to stay! Super close to train station and penryn campus! Plus you don’t even notice the trains.

I have stayed at the Sidings for 3 years in a row now and have been happy with the experience every time. Its a very cosy and peaceful place to be if that is something you are looking for. The common rooms are a decent size and there are multiple sofas meaning it's a great place to hang out if that is also something you want. The location is great with the bus stops and train station being right outside, campus is about a 20 minute walk but the steps can be tiring in the mornings. The WiFi is good when you have it but it is frustrating having to pay so much for extra devices or not having anything guests can connect to. Staff are friendly and make an effort to remember you but having to collect parcels between 2 and 5 only 5 days a week is a bit annoying. Although pricey, it is worth it for the comfort and pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend.

Thanks so much for your review! We are so pleased you have enjoyed your time with us at The Sidings over your three years! We have equally enjoyed having you! We really appreciate your feedback regarding Wifi and will take this into consideration for the future. In regards to postal hours, this was a Covid restriction which we have since lifted so post can now be collected any time between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

The rooms are quite a bit smaller than they are in Glasney but a bit more expensive. The bike storage is great as it's secure and sheltered but can sometimes be difficult to find space. Surf storage is a bit weird but does the job. Great for the train station and going into Penryn but it's a 20minute walk to Glasney and campus. Maintenance takes a while to come and sort things out (if they come at all). The reception staff are always very friendly and helpful, but are only in from 9-5 during the week. You have to wait to collect any parcels until 2pm. A cleaner occasionally hoovers the stairs but the rest is down to residents. Mop, brushes and hoover supplied. The kitchen is open and fairly spacious, the sofas are great. If you're someone who likes to go to bed early then the Sidings are great as there is rarely anything ever going on - you won't be kept up! WIFI is slow and upgrades are expensive, there's also no internet or signal in the laundry which makes the app impossible.

The location is great, right next to the train station, staff are all lovely and the rooms and common room/kitchen is really nice. Only downsides are the costs of internet which is a lot and it’s not always the best WiFi either in the past but overall really enjoyed my time here

The Sidings is great, off from the main busy campus but not too far and right next to the train station. Homely place to live.

A generally pleasant environment about 20 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Glasney. Safe, calm and quiet - although next too busy road and train station. Easy to get around, very idyllic.
