Most helpful review

I thoroughly like Beaverbank, a lot of people say the downside is of course the location but I genuinly think it works to good advantages too. I get good night sleeps because it’s more quite in a residential area and because of that it is much easier to walk around because it’s a much nicer area. Also ST James is not a far walk at all plus there are good bus stops nearby to take you to wherever you want to go as well as the accommodations own bus service where the drivers are very nice and friendly. The staff both reception and security are always friendly and happy to help, it’s always nice to even just have a chat to them. The common room is nice, although it’s a shame the Tv doesn’t work at the moment irs in no way a big deal, I do enjoy the accomodation a lot and my view from my room gives me a really nice look at edinvurgh castle and surrounding areas which is really nice too. It feels like a community at Beaverbank and that is something I really appreciate .

It is really nice to have my own room with a bathroom, staff is really nice only problem is a lot of times there is no hot water also sometimes emails are not answered. But all in all great place to stay. Close enough to the city centre but far enough to be tranquil and quite. Really nice area.

Excellent staff/ service. I’ve had experience in the studio and en-suite. I would whole-heartedly recommend the en-suite experience. The room itself in terms of walking around space is just shy of perfect but that’s to be expected. Moreover the bed and table sizes seemingly remain consistent with those in the studios. The kitchen and shared space for the en-suites however is much larger than what you would get in a studio, boasting a full sized fridge instead of a mini as well as 4 burners instead of 2 + increased storage space. In terms of area the super store Tesco and Lidl shop both within 10 minutes walk of the accommodation makes for easy groceries however keep in mind that distance from university campuses can be quite far. Eg. To get to the kings buildings it maybe take up to an hour on some days if you take public bus. Overall I would highly recommend Beaverbank place for its friendly staff, excellent service, overall community and great accommodation options.

Firstly, I would say the only big disadvantage to beaverbank is the distance from George square and kings buildings campuses, however the area still has good transport links in the public buses, and beaverbank runs their own free shuttle service which is invaluable. The rooms are comfortable and the desk is nice and big, with an amazing wifi connection. Kitchens are nice and spacious and the sofas in each kitchen provide a good spot for socialising. The common room is well looked after and the staff are lovely. Overall a pretty good student accommodation, I am having a good experience so far!

So far my experience with Beaverbank has been amazing. The community here is exceptional and I'm really enjoying my time here. The location does have it's ups and downs as there are 2 large stores right next door and if you want a good nites sleep this is your place. The only negative thing I can say about Beaverbank is that it is a bit farther away from some places but the social life here completely makes up for it. I would recommend Beaverbank to anyone!

I would definitely recommend staying at Beaverbank place to a student. First, the staff is great, they are always available and answer your questions really quickly. Second, the studio in which I was staying was in extremely good condition. There is a big desk to work, a large bed (even if i have to admit that the mattress was not really good), and a very large window for plenty of luminosity. Third, I think that the location of Beaverbank place is great. There are two supermarkets within 5 min walk, it is very calm (no traffic noise) and it is close to a lot of green spaces (pretty nice to cool down after a hard day of work). It is within 20 min walk from the city centre which was ok for me. Fourth, i think the rent is fair considering the quality of the studio, the great staff and the fact that you do not have to care about anything (bills, council tax exemption, parcel collection). Overall I highly recommend staying in the studios of Beaverbank place.

I rue the day I chose Beaverbank as one of my 5 accommodations. For one, the location is so far from the university and the journey is almost entirely uphill. Next, for my entire stay the common room and general social spaces were shut and the only social events they planned seemed to be for children. Obviously staff can’t do anything about covid but we still had to pay full price for our stay which is a total rip off btw. My flat next year is literally cheaper than Beaverbank whilst being miles better (and miles closer to the uni). The elevator in block 10 was bust for months and I was on the 4th floor. Everyone I knew at Beaverbank felt the social aspect was lacking compared to other accommodations we know of (worth noting I didn’t know all that many people at Beaverbank because there was virtually no social aspect). With all that being said I don’t blame the staff at Beaverbank they were all lovely whenever I saw them and tried their best with what they had. Amen.

Value for money was okay since it seems more modern than it actually is (kitchen was a little bit broken at some parts). Rooms could be a bit bigger. Can't say much about the cleaning as kitchen and corridor must be cleaned by the students themselves (which is no problem). Unfortunately, we couldn't use the common room due to Covid. Internet was good and fast. The staff was super lovely and helpful - 24/7 reception. The location is not that great if you consider that there are plenty of other university accommodations closer to the city centre. All in all, nice place to stay for a couple of months.

Situated by a lidl and a few green areas which is good, but quite far from the city centre. The hot water working is about as consistent as Ronaldo’s free kicks. Lift has been broken for a while and never been fixed. Interior is really nice though, and a generally nice and quiet accommodation. Staff are all friendly.

Bedrooms are cosy & love the desk/notice board colour setup. Kitchen lovely & spacious. Safe location but quite far out but it’s been a good incentive to walk places in Covid times. Social experience has been seriously hampered by Covid. That said the staff are absolutely lovely, so friendly and very helpful.

Beaverbank is in a really good location in the city, with lots of activities around and good transport links. The onsite staff are very friendly and helpful with everything, and in email communications they are just as supportive. The rooms are spacious and the WiFi works everywhere at the accommodation. There is also a laundry room with washers and dryers which you can access through the common room (which is very easy to work).

The building is immaculate and has a great local bus service to get to uni and back. WiFi is very good (only had one glitch but was sorted quickly). Communication between student and staff is brilliant, they reply promptly and can easily resolve any issues. Can't recommend this place enough!!

It's a really nice place, even though a bit far from George Square, I could actually get up earlier and enjoy the morning of this city on my way to unversity and get some morning exercise as well. The bedroom and kitchen are good, I love this small space for cooking and chatting with my friends. There are two supermarket nearby so it is easy to buy food and other daily necessities. The staffs are very nice and friendly, Fiona helps me a lot in basically every problems I met and she is really nice and friendly. I hope I could met her again next year when I able to back Edinburgh. The security team officers are also very responsible, they helped me two times at 2am driving away my crazy roommates who held parties with at least 8 or 9 people on the first day social restriction rule published, I still think I am kind of lucy of beibg able to back to my own country without any problems. Thanks to them and all the beaverbank staffs who have offered help to me~ ♥(ノ´∀`)

My experience at Beaverbank place is definitely one to remember. I stayed here for 4 years because I loved everything about it. The staff are always extremely accommodating and are so friendly and approachable. If you need help with anything they are always so helpful and nothing is ever a bother to them! The rooms are lovely and clean with lots of storage space, with an en-suite bathroom with is extremely handy. The kitchens are also spacious and are kept to a high standard. There is a Lidl and Tesco just around the corner so not far to go for shopping which is so useful. The Omni centre is at the top of the road which is really good for flat outings. The only slight disadvantage to Beaverbank Place is that it’s quite far out from the universities, however there are plenty of bus stops close to the accommodation that take you to exactly where you need to be for uni. Overall I loved my stay at beaverbank and would definitely recommend it to anyone contemplating about staying here!

The Beaverbank team were all very polite and friendly, always offered a helping hand when needed. With the pandemic, socialising was difficult but Beaverbank has a common room and other common areas for socialising. The secure car park was very handy as well and was very useful! Staff knew how to deal with issues and most of the time they were very prompt about it too! Thanks Beaverbank!!

Beaverbank is a great place to live! I would say it's specially great if it's your first year at uni. The staff are lovely and always nice and helpful. Some people say it's a bit far away from uni, which it is, but there's a shuttle bus every weekday, and if you like walking, it's a nice walk in the mornings. There's also other public transport just around the corner. The area itself is great, with a nice pub around the corner, and nice cafés and restaurants down towards the sea. There is a Lidl right around the corner as well as a Tesco which keeps open until 10pm so it's almost always possible to pop out and get a snack:) I all in all had a great year living at Beaverbank. The area is nice and so are the people and flats. Would definitely recommend living here:) And enjoy the walks in the mornings:)

In terms of rooms, cleanliness and management these halls are wonderful, and I ended up meeting my best friend here. However, when the university websit tells you it is within walking distance of campus they are straight up lying. Be prepared to either walk up hill for a solid 45 mins whilst running late for a lecture or spend your precious student loan on the (very very reasonably price) bus service. Ultimately I cannot fault the accommodation, but I can fault the uni for continuing to tell students it's a ten minute walk from campus

Beaverbank was the nicest place I stayed in in the 4 years of my student life. The staff is lovely and helpful at all times. They made my stay and the move out process as easy as possible. I really liked the location- I had so many great walks, the Botanic Gardens are a great place to visit, but Beaverbank is also reasonably close to Deans Village and other places you can spend time in. Beaverbank is a bit further from the University than some other locations but there are free shuttle buses and public buses that go to uni. I personally really enjoyed walking to classes, it gave me an opportunity to relax a bit before lectures and kept me motivated to get some light exercise regularly. A little downsides are: laundry machines are a bit pricey and there is no cleaning service (didn't bother me personally, I have no problem cleaning my room and it's really not that difficult to set a rota with your flatmates to clean the kitchen. Overall, I really nice place to stay

The staff are lovely. The flats themselves are clean, the rooms are a decent size, comfy beds and en-suite bathrooms are an amazing utility. Location slightly further than university than preferred but worth it for the rooms and amazing staff. Can’t recommend highly enough.

I have stayed here for 2 years and I am very happy with it. The staff are very friendly and don't hesitate to help with any issues you have. The carpark is a great bonus for moving in and out. The only issue I have is the distance for uni, however there are shuttle busses that drive to the different campuses. It is located near two supermarkets and the botanic gardens which is nice for taking a break from studying.

Very nice accommodation in terms of aesthetic and staff are very friendly. Only issue would have to be the distance from uni campus.

Covid-19: My lease was ended one month earlier than it was supposed to.

I had a nice stay at Beaverbank, whereby I rebooked for another year as it just felt right. The staff are lovely, I really enjoyed the short walk to stores and botanical gardens. The people staying at Beaverbank are also lovely, and I had a great experience. However, I do think it needs more social events and would be great to see improvements to the flats (maybe include televisions and music systems?)

Covid-19: I don’t stay here at this moment. But I was offered summer Accomodation from a friend that works at Beaverbank. I have not accepted, but i would not hesitate to stay here.

All in all, I had a good experience living here. Everyone who works here is pleasant, helpful and responsive. The flats themselves are pretty good -- enough storage space, a fully functioning bathroom, the kitchen's spacious. The mattress isn't the comfiest but there you go. I became really close with my flatmates so I can't complain at all about the social experience and I didn't use the common room much. The laundry facilities are through Circuit Laundry which is pricey and the setup is finicky but it's convenient. Many people complain about Beaverbank being far from the uni but I really love the area. It's far enough from the city centre so as it's quiet but it's still in the city so all the necessities and amenities are within walking distance. There are lots of lovely places to explore nearby like the Botanic Gardens and the Water of Leith Walkway. Also, being a bit of a walk from the uni isn't too bad as there's a shuttle to and from, Monday to Friday.

Covid-19: They were extremely helpful and supportive! Honestly, they went above and beyond. They made me feel secure during a very unstable time and helped me with things even after I had left. Again, the Beaverbank staff is great :)

This is the worst place you could stay at. It is expensive for what it is, extremely isolated and there is no professional cleaning, you have to do it all yourself. On top of that the room is so small you will be clostrophobic.

This place is a big concrete block, so noise travels so easily. I am on the third floor and is someone is talking on the pavement outside the building, they might as well be in my room having a conversation. My neighbors are very noisy, so it gets incredibly annoying. The place was dirty when I got here, I have cleaned it since, but I think a lot of it is just wear and tear. The people in the reception are nice and respond relatively quickly. The street itself it boring, but there are two large convenience stores close by and it is only a 30-40 minute to the city center. There are buses running quite often. It is quite expensive considering the price, but it seems to be generally expensive to live in Edinburgh, so I can't complain too much.

Been here just over a month it's crap social aspect is rubbish there's no cleaning it's too far away and none of the people I've spoken to actually had Beaverbank down on their choices, everyone was just put here. A lot of people have transferred to other accommodation and I'd like to join them, don't come here!

It's just so far out, much more expensive than average and that doesn't include a bus pass! No cleaners in flats - just monthly ridiculously overzealous inspections. It's nicely designed and easy to clean, however, and the social side is good.

To an outsider, Beaverbank looks great. It's a very new build, every room is en-suite with a double bed and there is twenty four hour security. However, it's a TREK. It's roughly a thirty-five minute walk uphill to get to the main campus uni (and that's on a good day). This means that the accommodation is very isolated in terms of students who live near by - and Beaverbank becomes clique-y to say the least. The staff are lovely, and will do all they can to help but there is no free cleaning service at Beaverbank, and if you live in a flat where not everyone gets along then the monthly kitchen inspections can take their toll. The rent is also sky-high at £660 a month this year (14/15), despite the less than ideal location. The common room promises so much and delivers so little: there is only space for about 10 people, and the "full sky tv" package actually lacks movies and some freeview TV channels. Beaverbank looks nice, but is definitely not the ideal fresher halls.
