Great accommodation room spacious I could make it a cosy wee pad to complete my studies. I also had the gym on the same floes so gave me a motivation to go. The study room is large and good place to get your work done. I had a great experience with staff always up to help I am now looking forward to staying here next year

Hello, 

 

This room is a gold en-suite bedroom.  Meaning you will share your Kitchen/living space with 3 other people. 

 

Hope that helps! 

 

Laura Smith

Q
hi! I was wondering if in the single bedrooms you're able to take your own TV or if there's one already there

Hello, 

 

What a great question! We provide a TV in the kitchen/living space.  We don't provide a tv in the en suite bedrooms, however if you wish you can bring your own tv to have in your bedroom if you'd prefer! 

 

We look forward to welcoming you soon, 

 

Laura

Hiya! Do you get a lot of first year students? If so, will shared kitchens and living areas be with those of the same age?

Really nice rooms in a really nice location - bus travel to other parts of Edinburgh easy with a bus stop right outside the accommodation. Supermarkets are a 2 minute walk away so reslly accessible. Staff are lovely and ready to help with any issues. Rooms are spacious with plenty of storage space. With plenty of events it was really easy to meet and make friends with others in the building and flatmates. Highly recommend!

Only acceptable as a plan B I’ve been living here for almost 5 months now and I don’t really like this place. Here are the reasons: - The draining system in the shower is THE WORST I’ve seen in my life. The water just never easily goes down! In the best case, you have to turn off the water every 30 seconds and wait for the water to go down and then repeat this until you are done with showering. In the worst case, even Mr Muscle won’t work! Even the maintenance person couldn’t fix it and I believe it’s because of the small pipes they’ve use for the building. For your information, whoever I spoke to in the building had this problem! So if you think you can take a relaxing shower after a day of studying, it’s actually going to go on your nerve badly! - The accommodation is on Gorgie Rd. which is a main road and there’s a lot of noise coming from the street. Usually there’s a lot of ambulances, police cars, etc. passing and the noise they make is too annoying (and imagine this happening

Thank you for your feedback, although we are obviously disappointed it is not a bit more positive, we would like the opportunity to work on your concerns as some of the concerns you have raised are likely issues we can rectify. 

Can you please report the drainage issue to us directly via the Mill House email or come to reception to speak with a member of the team so we can investigate and try and fix the problem. It is not uncommon for there to be times where the drainage needs worked on in any property, which can be the result of a variety of reasons. Without being able to investigate we are unable to come up with a suitable solution.

We are situated on a main road, which some of our rooms do face out onto, but we also have rooms available facing onto our courtyard or off the main road. Being on a main road does come with challenges such as it can be a bit noisier due to traffic- Emergency service vehicles do use this road as a route, but we cannot determine the volumn which will be compliant with noise control measures determined by local councils to ensure they access their emergency situation in a timely fashion. There are methods that can help reduce any possible noise.

We do have benefits to this location however, such as excellent transport links to all the education providers and the city centre. We are also very close to quieter areas such as Saughton park and the Water of Leith. 

I hope we have been able to offer positive experiences for your time here, but we are happy to discuss further to help support the remainder of your tenancy with us.

Thank you

Dani Calder

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a Review – we feel very rewarded when Students take the time to do this.  I’m so grateful you find us helpful and friendly; we are very aware that many are far from home and need a warm and friendly environment, so we do the best we can.  I’m sorry you have had a problem with our WIFI.  This is news to us, as we have not had a problem other than once during a storm.  The Helpline for the Internet Provider is excellent; we have heard nothing but good things from other Students!  Your last point speaks for itself; because we are ideally located and our building is large, contemporary and houses Social Spaces, Outside Spaces, Study Space and a Gym, we believe we offer value for money.  We are glad to have you!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a Review – each one feels like a wee pat on the back for us and we are grateful!  I’m very happy that you enjoy living with us so much.  Our Housekeeper does take pride in their job and keeps all of the communal spaces clean and tidy.  Our location is a great asset – on the same straight road as Heriot Watt University, Napier University Sighthill Campus, Edinburgh College and in the other direction Edinburgh University; with so many buses right outside the building there’s nowhere in Edinburgh one cannot get to from The Mill House.  I’m glad you feel safe and comfortable here.  Glad to have you!

The staff are super friendly and always happy to help no matter what the issue (personally I had a flat mate issue and they helped me move without any hassle). With Covid19 hitting everyone it's nice to know there is always a friendly face during office hours who you can speak to. Rooms have the perfect amount of storage space, under the bed and in shelving space. The Kitchen is a great space to have a cuppa and chat with your flatmates or to do your work if you don't want to be stuck in your room. The accommodation has a gym, social space and study area. While I have personally not been able to make use of these spaces due to the current circumstances it is still nice to know they are there had this not been the case. We live right on a bus route so easy to get into town I think it takes about 20mins, Aldi is a 5 min stroll down the road and if you are an MGA student like myself the Balgreen Campus is only a 5 Min walk away, perfect if you're running late!

Hello, 

What a lovely review to read just as my working day is coming to close!  Thank you for taking the time to leave such a personal and detailed review, its always heartwarming to receive such great feedback.  We do try our very best to make all our residents feel at home within The Mill house and help as best we can in any given situation.  Sometimes it is not always possible, but where there is a will theres a way.  

Please be rest assured that the social spaces and gym are patiently waiting to be re-opened again once restrictions allow - hopefully by the end of April, fingers crossed.  Then the MGA students will have all the space to sing and dance until their hearts are content.  

 

Many thanks,

Hello, 

Thank you for taking some time to review your experience here at The Mill house.  In normal circumstances all social areas of the building would be open 24/7, however in order to keep everyone safe during this current pandemic we have kept these closed as per Scottish Government advice.  Hopefully restrictions will be eased shortly and these areas can then be re-opened. 

 

Many thanks,

Hello, 

 

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience of living at The Mill House.  As per Scottish Government guidance we have closed our social spaces in order to keep our residents safe and minimise the spread of Covid-19.  I can appreciate this is frustrating for you, however I am confident we will be able to open these spaces in the coming months once lockdown restrictions begin to lessen.  

 

Many thanks,

The accommodation is very nice and spacious, however I do not believe it is worth the amount of rent per month. I think that we should have had a reduced rent due to the fact that we are not permitted to use any social spaces. Location is good for Napier Campus with many good bus routes.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.  Our location is very handy for many of the local Universities and Lothian buses provide such a brilliant service around Edinburgh. 

 As I am sure you can appreciate due to Scottish Government guidelines we are unable to have our gym, study room and social space open - however these are all ready and waiting for when current restrictions are eased! 

 

Many thanks,

The room looks pretty great, the only problem I found is that the kitchen is not very good equipped. There is no toaster or kettle, which I think are neccesities.
