Most helpful review

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...).

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.

Hello!

Thank you for remaining with us. We have had quite a few rebookers here at The Barn which is great as we know were are getting things right. 

 

The social spaces are very well desiged with a massive table, cooker, music docking station for playing tunes, vending machine, large TV room and gym. There is also the quiet study room as you say for you and friends if assignments are group-orientated. These spaces allow people to have their friends over and can be booked for special occasions such as birthdays or just relaxing after handing-in essays. There is also the external social area that is secure for gatherings. 

We have had people stay here for up to 3 years so far which means we get to know people really well and are sad to see them leave once their studies are over.

Thank you ever so much for taking the time to leave us a review! We are loving the admiration for the site and our efforts to make you stay here are pleasuarble as possible while you study. 

Cheers!

Hello!

We do try to put on treats for all our students to enjoy when we have the chance. We also try to make special occasions like Halloween and Chinese New Year special for those many miles from home. We look forward to any suggestions you have to make it a nice place to live and so we can improve on things we may have missed. 

Thanks you again for your lovely feedback!!

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.

Hello! 

Thank you for your review regarding the staff! That was very kind and we're happy you took the time to mention us. 

Yes, the gym is very nice here. Now we are out of lock down (23.7.21) it is open 24/7 so we hope that people use it again without restriction. 

If you liked it here we hope you tell your friends as that means word or mouth is always reassuring to anyone making the big decision of where to stay - STAY HERE!! :) 

Thanks!

Hello!

Thanks ever so much for noticing the cleanliness of the premises. I will pass your comments on to Debbie who is great at what she does! 

We also try to be as supportive as we can as we know how much pressure a course of study can be. We try to take away any concerns you have to make sure you have the peace you need. 

We do have a very nice gym that is open 24/7 permitting. We also try to put on events when we can to make sure students mingle and feel like it's a friendly place to be. Your feedback is wonderful as it means we are finding the balance that keeps our students happy and carefree during their stay. 

 

I just want to add that we love doing what we do and it's made soooooo much better by having people stay here that are friendly and relaxed. 

 

Thanks!!! :)

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.

Hi!

 

Thank you for your lovely feedback and support fo us! We get very excited about meeting new people and looking after the students that have been here for longer - many for up to 3 years now. 

 

Our gym is very good and many students stay here to use this area with it's running machines, rowing machines, cross-trainers, cycling machines and free weights. We are particularly proud of our gym, thank you for appreciating it! 

 

We are lucky to be situatated in such a prime area close to shops, resturants and night-life. 

 

We enjoyed looking after you and if you ever fancy being a student oin this area again we would certainly enjoy having you back! 

 

All the best!! :)
