Read Haddington Place Reviews
I have been living in Haddington Place for the past two years and it has been a great experience. The rooms are comfortably big, and you are provided with facilities almost unmatched by any other housing provider in Edinburgh. The gym has enough equipment to be useful for everyone, the common room is always fun with people hanging out and playing pool, and we even have a small cinema room. Other facilities like the laundry room, bike store and study room are top notch as well. The staff at Haddington is very helpful and quickly resolves any issues that come up, which is different from other university houses for undergrads. I have lived in the cluster flats and they are definitely one of most comfortable compared to other University of Edinburgh halls. The only downside is the distance to George Square campus or Kings Building. It's 25-30 min uphill walk to George Square which puts some people off but there are regular buses. Apart from that the area is lovely!
We were very happy in Haddington, it is a bit expensive, because for what you pay you can get a flat, but it sort of compensates with all the amenities and attention you have. The staff is very helpful and they are all nice. The location is good, and has lots of supermarkets near by. Social experience wasn't so good because of COVID but that had nothing to do with the place. The Wifi works perfect.
Haddington Place is in a perfect location that is quiet and safe. It is close to Princes St, Calton Hill and the Uni of Edinburgh main campus. The rooms are extremely well kept and spacious. I actually had too many drawers for my items. My oven stopped working and it was fixed immediately without issue. All of the staff are helpful, friendly, and lovely to talk to. I am so happy I stayed at Haddington and would recommend it to anyone.
Really friendly and helpful staff, and always quick to respond. Studios are perfect for mature students looking for your own space- I've stayed here for the entirety of my PhD. Location is great - in between the city centre and Leith so best of both worlds. Well connected to bus routes and there's a big Tesco in walking distance.
Great place to stay! Highly recommend to anyone moving to Edinburgh. It's in my favorite part of the city as it's in-between Leith and the centre, easy to get a walk to uni, get the bus or train anywhere. Also lodes of great cafes, restaurants, bars, and multi-cultural supermarkets. The staff are always supportive, friendly and chatty, the security guards honestly deserve medals as they do an amazing job to make you feel safe, can always ask them anything or have a good chat late night. The studios are a great space, perfect if you are a mature student or want something more quiet and private ( I have placement early mornings or late night some days!) Staying for the second year because I've enjoyed my time so much, despite being away from home through the pandemic.
