Shelly is really nice, the social spaces were good. Nice to have a gym and study room, and the main social area was good although the table tennis table, table football, and pool table got broken/damaged/lost pretty early into the year. The studio room was nice and clean, well designed, just about big enough for me and my partner to share.

Overall this accommodation is good however, if I had known that I’d be on the ground floor I would not have stayed at the barn. With the communal area so close to bedrooms the noise was unbearable. The nights before exams I had to sleep with head phones on due to people screaming and talking loudly directly outside my door till early hours in the morning, yet despite emailing management about this issue nothing was done, not even a response to my concern. Overall the barn has been great, good location, clean, and great rooms, but the noise and the lack of real concern about attempting to rectify it has made me wish I chose another accommodation to stay at, specifically considering the amount of money I and others have paid to stay here.

The Barn is really close to the city center with international shops and restaurants surrounding it. The reception team is wonderful and very accommodating and help with whatever issue you might face. They also create fun socials and sessions for you to interact in and offer food and snacks sometimes. Any maintenance issue is dealt with as quickly as possible and has made my life easier. The social spaces they offer such as the gym and the communal area is great and spacious. Never had any problem with the WiFi, it’s always been fast and reliable. I would really recommend this accommodation compared to other private ones

The size of the room is just right, very comfortable, and the layout of the space is very reasonable. The apartment is located in the city center, which is very convenient. The management staff are very warm and friendly.

I have really enjoyed my time at the barn, though of course COVID has rather limited the social interactions for a studio flat user like me. Management/reception has been responsive and helpful over my time here and the facilities available are top quality. The location is also excellent, being close enough to walk to uni comfortably but placed centrally in town for easy access to shopping. Internet access is also usually good, though done through a secondary provider that can be a little limiting. Overall, very good though of course not cheap.

It’s a relatively good experience. However, given the covid circumstances where most of facilities were inaccessible, a partial refund on the rent would be good.

The facilities inside the accommodation are really good, but I have not had the opportunity to take full advantage of them due to Covid-19. I wish there were more opportunities to meet other residents.

Very happy with my experience at the Barn and this is why I have renewed my contract for next year. I love that I get to spend time with my friends in the common social area, have an equipped gym accessible whenever I want to workout, a study space when I need a more quiet space to work. In addition, the location is great since shops aren’t too far away (as well as bars, restaurants, cinemas...).

First of all, all staffs in The Barn are very nice and helpful! The gym room down stairs is very convenient for me because during lockdown all the gym are closed but I can still go to gym as usual.

Occupying a studio in the Barn has been a superb experience six months in. As with everything, what makes or breaks an environment is the staff which run the operation. That is something where the Barn has hit gold. Upon your first arrival, a staff member will greet you by name. This instantly makes you feel welcome, particularly during the trying time that is moving into new accommodation, and is indicative of the usual level of service provided to all residents. The impeccable amenities including a gym (to roll out of bed into), the conscientious of the staff, who go above and beyond, the central city centre location, and the generous size of my studio has made staying at the Barn for the first year of my History undergraduate degree at Exeter University a thoroughly memorable experience.
