Great location, so close to the town. Uni bus stop behind the halls if the weather is great for walking in. Although the walk is only 15/20 minuets. Always people around to talk to or chill with. Also has the new Student Union venue behind it, which makes it better for pre drinks or a hungover breakfast.

Excellent halls, have made some great friends here and have many good memories and am sure I will make some more. So close to town which means you don't spend anythig on taxis for nights out. Free buss pass to Ked road too, so honestly can not complain. Our cleaner is honestly amazing and so friendly. The maintenance guy is really friendly too

Sir Peter Hilton court is located close to town and to the university campuses, there are always staff on duty 24/7 which help you with everything within halls. Cleaners come weekly and clean the kitchens and if you have a standard room the cleaners also clean the toilets and showers. For when you run out of food there is a handy vending machine on site which does all of your essential supplies including food, drink, milk, bread and even tooth brushes. I would recommend everyone to come here.

Brilliant Halls, 2 minute walk to the Law School. The Hall Manager is great at his job and clearly cares about the site and his students. The RAs are always really friendly, approachable and professional. The Caretaker is always working so hard and the site is always really clean and tidy. The Cleaner in Charge and her team are very friendly and efficient. The security team are brilliant and get to know the students. Given the size of the hall it is not too noisy and has a community feel. 10/10. 5*s

my time at Sir Peter Hilton Court has been a magical experience. It has allowed me to blossom as a person, with the help of the friendly warm-hearted staff, especially that blonde amazonian goddess that makes every day easier, and that little bit brighter.

Good social aspect. Terribly slow management and response times to complaints and enquiries. Hot water constantly went off with no permanent solution offered. Decent security. Over priced washing and drying.

Overall, I've had a great first year at sph. The staff are really understanding that you're adults and there for a good time and are always there to talk to in the week (not so much at weekends). The rooms themselves are probably due some renewment to justify the cost but for student accommodation you can't complain!

I love being in halls and SPHC is right next to town meaning a night out is very cheap due to there being no need for taxis. The TV lounge in en-suite plus rooms is defiantly a bonus and i am glad i have chosen this type of room as it has given us space to bond as a flat and also invite friends over, its also useful for predrinks before a night out as it has plenty of chairs, beanbags and a sofa.

Its a good place to stay incomparision to the other halls but the main downfall was the continuing problems with the boiler and how long it took to fix certain problems

Great halls manager! Shame I was above the common room though... Endless amounts of noise! The location is good in terms of closeness to the city centre, but one of furthest away from the main campus. Loved my time in halls though :D
