Halls are great to live in, you get to meet new people, but also the rooms have ensuites so you still get privacy. The grass area means there is somewhere to sit outside when the weather is nice

We were told that we would be given the flat for a certain price then they purposely held the contract until the new year so they could increase the price. We now pay £128 per week when we were promised £118. When arriving we were told that the cleaning cupboard would be in our flat, something they didn’t inform us about. They emptied it after we attempted to renegotiate the price because of this so they emptied it so we now just have a large cupboard in our flat which is empty, taking up space and redundant. The rooms could be described as coffins but are okay and are nice, bright and clean although the radiators only stay on for 20 minutes, the shower only has two extreme temperatures which after going to the manager about numerous times has still not been rectified. Other issues however have been rectified sharply and in all fairness the halls manager is very nice and laid back and happy for us to change stuff we don’t like. The WiFi speed is atrocious with speeds of 0.5MB/s

The rooms are cosy, and kitchens spacious. There is plenty of storage and space through out. The decor is modern yet comfortable. It feels like a home from home.

Think a lot of the bad reviews on here must be from people with a problem. I found my time pretty good here. Yes the wifi was crap but that's not really the halls fault - ASK4 are useless and halls should get rid of them. Staff were great with all the problems I had and sorted then quickly. My advice would be if you have a problem go talk to the hall manager who can help. Staff can only help if you tell them bout things that have gone wrong. Would defo return!

Terrible. Would never go back there again. Mentioned an Internet issue and it was never sorted for the whole time that I was there. We were charged for a cleaning service but we're required to make sure that the kitchen was clean before the cleaner came therfore making the service pointless. There was never any security around and the hall wasn't secure as you could get in without a fob through the car entrance. Noise complaints were not managed efficiently. Would not live there again.

Good halls, great location both for town and for uni. Great social experience, easy to make friends. En suite is great but very small for the cost compared to other halls

Moving to a different place next year and nothing could convince me to stay. Always noisy and the wifi is terrible and after many complaints it still isn't working right and I have to connect using an Ethernet cable and have had to do so since the end of September. The rooms aren't warm enough . The showers go cold. We pay for a cleaner as part of our rent but are required to make sure that the bins are took out and that the kitchen is clean before they come. People are let in to our rooms without our permission also. I wouldn't recommend living here.

Good facilities that are cleaned regularly. Staff are lovely and easy to talk to however the building's windows need addressing as a lot of noise can be heard through them and also the blind does not cover the whole window so light comes in at night.

really enjoying my time at peak court, paying the extra money was worth it as it's the nicest halls in derby! People are friendly, good location the only down side is my room is above the smoking area and they are very loud all day and night and I sometimes find it quite intimidating walking past it!

It's a nice place structural but don't expect to get any sleep on any of the student nights, i don't recommend if you're a third year (like me) ad have lots of work to do and in need of sleep. The walls may as well be made of cling film i can hear every word of the freshers signing drinking songs out of tune and wrong if you're gonna keep me up sing it right. The hall staff and cleaners are great, cant fault the staff just the structure

I thought that quite time was at 11pm and I have to be up at 7:30 sometimes for lessons. One night when my flatmate had to be up for 7 there was a party Upstairs and in the common room went on until 4am and she ended up missing her lecture because she was so exhausted. It has happened for 2 weeks now and I've let it slide a bit with it being freshers but there's no respect.

The only problem that i have is the fact that you can only have 2 devices connected to the wifi without having to pay for more

room is located near the chairs/smoking area which can become very loud at night time, and become not enjoyable due to the loud noise. However, overall experience in halls so far is good.

Management is really well done here, the halls manager and night staff know what to do exactly, even when there's water leaks in flats at the early hours of the morning setting the fire alarm off. They're very calm and coordinated.

Generally fine, but nowhere near worth the money they ask, and i got £700 discount. Going by the new price of £5500 (for 2015/16) it is no where NEAR worth it.

Peak Court is pretty quiet compared to Peter Hilton. The rooms are nicer but there is no social atmosphere there really.
