Definitely worth your money, Paul and Phil are so lovely and kind to all who move here, they even order pizza a lot for us! It’s definitely a quiet accommodation and has a quiet policy after 11pm. If you’re looking to socialise you’ll definitely need to go out of your way for it due to the location and the fact it is studios. Many on-site facilities which are in perfect condition all the time. Walk is a lot but gets you fit, there is also a uni bus about 12 min walk away which can help on a rainy day! You are close to move and fever if you like clubbing and the quay is a very pretty spot to go to. Near ALDI which saves a lot of money on shopping and is a 15 min walk to St David’s station. Sometimes the wifi can go down very rarely but it’s not the accommodations fault at all.

West Gate is quiet but still has social events to engage with the people you are living with. It has the best social areas in comparison to other accommodations in Exeter and is very close to the city centre.

It’s my second year in west gate and my overall experience is pleasant, the managers (Paul and Phil) are really helpful and the rooms are more like a hotel room which is definitely a huge advantage. Wish I could stay more

I have spent a great two years at West Gate. The accommodation team is lovely, cleaning and maintenance is always top notch. The location is brilliant, being only 5 minutes away from the Quay (arguably the best area in Exeter) and around 20 from the uni. The rooms are spacious and we even have a gym and cinema room in the building... It was truly such a good experience living there!

The maintenance staff and everything Westgate has to provide for it's residents is very wholesome to witness. The site has a brilliant location right next to the quay. The property is always clean and expected standards are being met on a regular basis.

The manager of the studio is an amazing man. The personal space is very warm and comfortable. However, the light of the room is not enough bright. The projector in the The cinema is broken. Other than that, it's the best student apartment I've ever lived in.

Excellent accomodation, very well kept and clean and is literally in the city centre. Value for money is bang on as all communals are very luxurious and rooms are larger than most accomodations in the city.

Very warm welcome by Paul and Phil. They are always on hand and can solve any problems if there are any. Great living space, with a range of different amenities such as a gym, study space rooms and even a cinema room. The location is fantastic. A two minute walk from the Quay and the high street is very close. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

•WestGate has the most attractive rooms amongst all the accommodations. • the best part of the studios in Westgate is the 32” TV • All the main spots are a 5 min walk away • Quay is the point where we go to relax and its barely a minute away from the accommodation
