Most helpful review

Pretty pricey but great flats of five bedrooms each with ensuite and 3/4 beds. Super friendly reception and security staff, there within 20 minutes day or night if you lock yourself out - which you will. RAs did organise loads of group outings, particularly during freshers week where they were very popular and great for meeting neighbours.

Great value for money. Great building, conveniently located, with all necessary amenities. Everyone at reception is extremely friendly and helpful, they are there for you at any time.

Security is incredibly relaxed. It is not uncommon for people to walk in off the street, entirely unchallenged or stopped in any way by reception staff. Following this, there is no CCTV above the ground floor level/outside of the elevator. Trash is often found overflowing in the courtyard by mid-afternoon/evening. It's not uncommon to find rats in the dumpster when taking your trash out. The walls between both rooms and flats are very thin plasterboard. Individual noise complaints are recorded by reception, but it is highly uncommon for action to be taken against any individual based on noise. Management and maintenance regularly downplay, or for the most part, ignore building quality/damage brought to their attention within the premises/flats. Also, the surge in five star reviews to this website between June 27–28 is curious. These did come at a time when management was making a push for positive reviews.

Fantastic location-10 minute walk to Princes St. and law school/ George Square campus. The staff are excellent and the building has an enjoyable social scene.

Lovely place to live, great gatherings and events so that people meet each other and socialise. Stuff always available even at night and very helpful. Only two shortcomings, windows are small in certain rooms so better come prepared for it in case you only see the pictures, and walls are a bit thin, not unlike other student accommodations though! certainly not something to disuade you to stay in a central, lovely location!

I can highly recommend Portsburgh Court student accommodation if you are looking for a place to stay. The staff are hands down the best. Always super friendly, helpful and always available. If you have any questions, need help or just want to chat they are all always happy to chat. Moving to Edinburgh was already stressful enough, they made it so much nicer! Apart from the staff, things that I love about my accommodation are: the location (everything is in walking distance and a Sainsbury's is just around the corner), the internet is quite good, I've never had any problems with it, there is regularly something going to meet people. The only two small complaints I have are the cleaning schedule (only every second week) and the window size in some rooms (just schedule a viewing beforehand to check). All in all, I am very happy with the accommodation and highly recommend to come to visit and check it out for yourselves!

I was originally unsure where to live between university accommodation and here but after reading reviews I was really impressed by the professional and friendly staff.

Very slow to connect to the wifi and if you want a hoover or anything you have to go to another building. But it's very close to the center of campus. Rooms are a decent size, and very modern.
