I rarely give bad reviews places but the staff and accommodation here pushed me to do so for Bainfield. To start off, the flat is very expensive for the dorm-like rooms you receive (most flats have 8 people living in them). The rooms are very small, which wouldn't be a problem if the rent every month was a lot cheaper. The staff here are INCREDIBLY rude and not helpful. They are less than willing to help if you have lost mail or have not received a package you are expecting. I've also experienced several disruptions, as there are always people coming in and out of our flat and rooms for inspections or other work. It did not feel like it was actually my space. You can find other accommodation for a better price that is a lot nicer, and probably a more ideal location as well. I would not recommend this flat.

Pros: - decent, modern accommodation - en-suite toilets in all bedrooms - excellent location close to centre of town - close to pubs and clubs - fountainpark directly across the road which has a nandos, pizza hut, chinese buffet, cinema and more.. Cons: - very expensive for what you get (definitely not worth the £595 a month price tag!!!) - misleading price (told it is £122 per week, which should work out at £488 per month, however rent for September and May is split up into the remaining 7 months which pushes up the monthly price by over £100, becoming unaffordable for people relying on student loan to pay for rent) - poor (and rude) management who fail to inform you of important information - halls are right beside a construction site where a new school is being built - loud noise from 7am til 6pm. And management did very little to try and improve the situation

First of all, they charge you A LOT more than they advertise the flats as. I rented the superior suit which should cost 135 a week, but actually costs 167 a week, which they don't tell you until its too late. Flats are modern but has a lot of faults: 1. Security = terrible. several break ins, outside doors can't be locked etc. 2. Heating = non-exsistent. During the winter we had 2 hours of heating a day, however the heaters are prevented from going further than medium and the rooms are really poorly isolated. 3. Washing machines = dead expensive, doesn't clean at all. 4. Fire alarms. Going off atleast twice a week. record is 3 in 48 hrs. 5. Reception staff/ Accom office = extremely unhelpful, tries making money off charging fines for non-exsistent things. 6. No fridge space. 8 people in a flat with less than one shelf each. 7. WiFi. Terrible, shuts off a lot, slow even though I paid extra for 50mbps. In other words, I don't recommend living here for that high rent.

They charged us (as a flat) £80 for a new bin because the old one was dirty. Internet dropped at least twice a week, ridiculous amounts of noise, I see they're building a secondary school right next to the accommodation (you poor poor sods) and generally it was a pretty dismal time. Highlight was my amazing flat mates, with the only exception being the Russian girl who invited her friends around for shouting matches at 3am. Lay some ground rules down, kids.

Absolutely awful student accommodation. I would advise everyone thinking of living here to find housing elsewhere. We have had to put up with internet connection frequently not working, 2 weeks of no hot water for myself and a month for my flatmate, noise from the building site next door, shower rooms that flood because the floor isn't level, washers and dryers which are almost always either full or not working (there are nowhere near enough to accommodate the amount of people living here) a letter box which is broken every other day so we have to ask reception to open it for us, automatic lighting in the hall which does not turn off and a very unwelcoming and unfriendly head accommodation officer. Our lock on our door broke during the easter break through no fault of our own, and it took them 3 weeks to fix it. Anyone could have simply walked into our flat and taken anything from the living room/kitchen area. there are several other points, but you get the idea. Stay somewhere else

For what you're paying its ridiculous. Endless problems with shower blocking, drawers coming apart, cupboard handles coming off, the front door never locked properly, security were forceful and very rude and the fines were ridiculous. Would not recommend. Better to find either a private flat or lodge.

My overall experience of bainfield was generally good. However, I found the halls staff very rude and unhelpful towards my flat in my experience. We started the year with a broken table that ended up being pushed into a corner so we couldn't use it, for fear of breaking it. After a number of emails acknowledging our broken table, nothing came if it and any other emails were ignored. (Not naming names) The halls staff continued to inspect our flat three weeks in a row. I understand the need for cleanliness but three inspections in three weeks is a joke when no other flat got the same treatment. I found that security did their jobs very well and were polite throughout my stay. All in all the location of bainfield is good for university campuses and night life. Dissapointed that it had to be this way I just hope that it can be fixed for next year. Major adjustments needed.

Stayed in the 'suprerior accommodation' this year - not worth the money at all, our flat was basically like every other flat in Bainfield, except it came with a tv in the communal area, faster WiFi included and 'panoramic views of the city' which was basically just a building site and a canal. Even on the too floor of the building, you can still hear every voice coming from the courtyard. Within the first few weeks, our flat sprung a leak in the kitchen and one of the sprinklers just fell from the ceiling while we were all in the room. Flat inspections just feel intrusive and like they're purposely looking for things to all you out on, and when there aren't flat inspections there's people constantly in your flat doing other work on 'light, shower head or kitchen maintenance'. I experienced a few rude staff, especially the accommodation officers, who just seem more interested in your money than actually helping you. Definitely not worth the money.

Bainfield is the perfect place to stay if you want to go out every single night and never get any sleep the whole uni year. The rooms are very small for the amount we paid, and the walls are extremely thin so you hear everything, but the en suite was very nice. The amount of inspections and repair work that had to be done to lights etc was ridiculous, they were in our flat more than we were. The only plus is the key fob allows for better security, however it didn't stop bikes being stolen etc. If you don't care about any of the above things I would stay here, I met the best flat mates and it is in an ideal location.

Value for money: £126 p/w (probably more for '16-'17 students) is extortionate, considering how terrible the wifi is. They charge *extortionate* amounts for the slightest amount of damage. For example, my friend's flat got charged £40 in total (with 4 to a flat, that's £10 each) after a flat inspection because jars left on a windowsill left rings (which could have been wiped off easily). Their justification? That the windowsill needed to painted. That was completely unnecessary. The wifi is absolutely terrible. Either the ceilings are thin, or I had noisy neighbours, but I kept hearing them. The doors to the buildings can simply be yanked open, leading to multiple thefts from people's flats (since Gibson terrace, the street opposite, is full of jakeys). A couple of positives: everyone goes there, so it's very social; bainfield bar is good for revision (cause nobody ever goes there); the actual quality of the rooms/common areas themselves is pretty good.

Bainfield is really good for location as it is very central and I met loads of amazing people there, but that's literally the only good things. The staff are rude, inconsiderate and unhelpful. Our fridge broke and it took them over a week to sort it out meaning we had basically no food. Our flat door also didn't lock and they were very rude about sorting it out, even though the front doors could be opened easily by anyone and there were several break ins. The rent is far too expensive for what it's worth. Internet never worked and if it did it was slow. Washing machines were over priced and didn't clean your clothes. Constantly woken up early by maintenance and once had a workman drilling outside my room at 9am. They also fine you ridiculous amounts for the littlest things. £25 for a new key is a joke when they probably cost about £3 to make by some little kid in China. Bainfield summed up in one word- shite.

Bainfield was honestly just a horrible experience for the full time I was there. I lived in the bottom flat with a big room and shower room which when I moved in thought it was great. The first night staying there having a shower, flooded my whole bathroom, I complained about this problem for 4 months before anything was done about it. The accomadation officer seemed to just want to charge me of some non existing damage rather than help with the problems I faced with me flat. Living on the bottom floor meant anyone coming into the building I had to hear their conversations at all times of the night. Was unable to leave my window open as smokers hung outside my window. And basically wished I stayed anywhere else but here at bainfield a complete waste of money and 9 months of my life...

The Internet was clearly the cheapest available as it it terrible unreliable and drops all the time. The price is far more per month than any flat privately especially since there 8 man flats and so should be cheap! Regardless of what you add to the list of things they missed out when you moved in(the form for damages and breaks) the management team will still attempt to charge you for all of them when you move out. They will try charge you cleaning charges when you leave regardless of what state the rooms in and will attempt to fine you as much as possible in an effort to rip you off and take as much money as possible. All in all bainfield is terrible! And this is all due to the wifi and management team

Overall rely bad experience, staff constantly hassling us about inspections, constant fire drills randomly at any time of the day, too many people in one flat (7), and also my bike was stolen in brought daylight under their surveillance in whilst chained up with a motorcycle chain, nothing was done about it, and it continues to this day, also way too expensive your better flat sharing or something.

Expensive for what you actually get out of it although the bedrooms and flats are modern and a decent size for a university halls! The wifi was good and the location was great- just outside of the city centre! The kitchen was good although I struggled for room in the fridge as there was 7 of us in our flat! The clothes washing facilities weren't great due to price and cleanliness of the machines and room! My social experience was good and I have made plenty of friends, however I do think this was hindered by the layout of the flats and how secluded they are from other flats! In most University's they give you a personality test during matriculation and ask you about going out and interests in order to group you into a flat with people with similar interests..I had nothing in common with my flat and we didn't get along at all! The room maintenance was awful, I had people coming in and out of my room, weekly, to fix my shower head and lights even though there was nothing wrong with them)

My main issues with my stay at bainfield were the staff. Not the security staff but the halls staff. I found them very unhelpful and rude towards most members of my flat. I would urge next years tenants to view the flat with someone and take pictures so that they cannot charge you for things you didn't break. We came into the flat with a broken table and asked for a new one up until about Christmas time until we realised it wasn't happening. The halls staff didnt help with any issue and the flat inspections were a joke about cleanliness. However, I had a great time at bainfield but that surely wasn't helped by the staff there. Hopefully it can change for the coming year...

I loved the experience of meeting new people and it was a spacious halls! It was great but definitely too expensive, they charge you for anything possible and it's never cheap! It's ridiculous, they don't understand we are students! They expect you to clean it to perfection when in fact we have probably cleaned it better than it was when we first arrived! The staff are just rude and speak down to us! Definitely needs a lot of sorting out before it even comes close to 5 star

It's not worth the money for what it is. Stuff was always breaking and took ages to get fixed. The people who worked there were awful and we were treated like children as we had flat inspections every other week and room inspections. It's a good location for going out but if you go to sighthill your a good 45 minutes on the bus. The people you meet are amazing though and it almost makes it worth it!

Far to expensive for what it is worth. You will have people constantly coming in and out of your flat. There is break in and bikes stolen from their supposed high security. They blame students for these even though people are getting past their "high security" The rooms are small and you'd think they heat up well, your wrong. internet crashes on a regular basis a lot of times when its coming close to deadlines. Staff are disrespectful and will look through your personal items and argue points that are unnecessary for example I'm a digital media student and I shouldn't have such a big pc with me. You pay so much for so little you are cheaper going to reigo or Morrison circus, cheaper still going private. Ontop of your rent being more than you think it will be they will charge you for anything and i mean anything the smallest dust particle in your room is enough to try and charge you £30. DO NOT come to Bainfield.

The only thing I have enjoyed is meeting people at this accommodation. However! It is not worth the rent money spent each month. Heating is on for a few hours a day leading to rooms being cold for the most part. Accommodation officer and reception staff are rude and unhelpful. You will get fined for anything. Even issues present at the time you move in. Security is lacking severely with bikes and personal items being stolen and security staff slacking off often across in the entertainment complex. Most of the time stag in reception so regular patrols are non existent. Doors to blocks are easily pulled open so anyone can get into the block. Parking is terrible and accommodation officer only really cares about getting his car parked outside reception. Reigo, slatford, Morrison circus all seem better than Bainfield so look at them before deciding on it. Private accommodation seems to be cheaper as well.

Bainfield as a whole has been good due to the people I have met, the nearly double beds and having an ensuite but apart from that nothing else has been pleasant. There has been continuous disruption due to building works, regular fire alarms going off at 3/4am in the morning weekly due to 'technical' faults, door handles breaking, leakages in the corridor, ridiculously expensive washing machines and driers to name just a few of the problems. I could go on but what you need to know is that although the price is way to high for the quality of Bainfield it is worth it compared to other accommodation available and to meet such amazing people to share the halls experience with

Great, clean and very modern. No real common room, just a bit of a rubbish "Union bar" which nobody goes to. Hall management was a disgrace, would've gave 0 stars if I could, had a very troublesome flatmate who caused distress to everyone for 3 months before he was eventually kicked out. However, I have met plenty of good people and friends in nice surroundings. Have to make the effort yourself to meet people though. Overall, very good (apart from the management).

Bainfield is very new and modern, although it is a lot of money for what you get; it is the nicest accomodation that Napier have at the moment. Cleaning is the responsibility of the occupants of the flat although hallways/lifts/outside areas have external cleaners. If the room allocations were based on the personalities of individual students then flatmates would propably get on better, however the rooms and en suits are expentional.

Its a nice building, personally feel there are too many people in one flat. Also having such a diverse mix of students in one flat is difficult. It is quite expensive especially when there's so many people in each flat however facilities are good and for the area its cheaper than a one bedroom flat. I think experience at halls all depends on your personality and whether you get on with you flatmates.

As they are private halls, you get to share a flat with 4 other people. The kitchen is nice, modern and spacious however it's not the cleanest. It has a dishwasher but the filters are dirty as were the hobs and extractor filters when I first arrived. The social spaces are great and well kept. The rooms are good with loads of storage space except in the bathroom, where there is no storage space at all. All rooms are accessed through a key card which is also used to provide electrivity for the room, so once you leave there is no electricity in the room so you can't rely on things to charge whilest you're out. Overall it's a great place which a very friendly staff and emergency services available 24 hours incase someone forgets their key. You also get to meet lots of people from different backgrounds which is very interesting and there is manay events arranged by the accomodation to make friends :)
