Hi, 

Absolutley, we want you to feel at home and you can have your friends over whenever, all we ask is that you sign them in at reception so we have a record of numbers in the building. If someone is staying over in your room for longer then 5 nights we would ask you to let us know so we can fill in the relevant forms too. 

 

Hope this helps 

Q
Hi there, how are the rooms allocated? Do you have a lot of first year undergraduates? Do you try and place all undergraduates in flats together?

Hi, 

Thank you for the question, 

We generally try and group people in the same year of study, but you can also request things like the same gender of flat or same age group. If nothing is specified then it could be in a nice mix of new friendly faces/ages and gender. Hope this helps

We are called Dobbie's Point because the building sits next to Dobbie's Loan and the front of the building is pointed.

I used to love living here but the staff have favourites and let them hang around and everyone else is brushed to the side the night people and security officers are lazy and just sit with there feet up and you have to wait until they are ready to get up Maria is superb and Iain to Fiona Zack and Calum are way to stuck up and bossy it was better when I first moved in now it’s different and not as enjoyable

Hi, 

 

Thank you for getting in touch, We always strive to have an open door policy for all our residents, some people take to this more than others and come down and visit us more at the front desk but it is in no way exclusive and you're always welcome to come have a chat whenever you like. I'm really sorry you feel this way, we're more than happy to set up a meeting for yourself with Fiona to come talk about all of your feelings on this, with everything happening at the moment our number one concern is your wellbeing and if it feels like there is no time to speak to us just send us an email to set up a time and place and we will be more than happy to come talk over your concerns. Take care and hopefully speak soon.

Room is well-equiped. But I suggest that there shall be a service for cleaning the shared area.

Hi Boris, 

 

Thank you for the review. 

 

Although we provide cleaning for all our communal areas in the building we do leave your own personal space like your bedroom and shared kitchen up to yourselves and/or your flatmates. We do appreciate all feedback and if you feel like you're not getting the support from your housemates in keeping up with these tasks then you can always come speak to us at our 24 hour reception or send us an email

Thank you again for the review

Hi, 

Thank you for leaving some feedback. 

We could not agree more that it's a nice place to stay, in terms of expensive, we're not the cheapest in town but that means we offer so much more than the places that are. We offer different rooms all at different price points which all include 24 hour use of our on site cinema, gym & communal areas to use whenever you like along with 24 hour security. On top of that we have a full social calendar all free of charge too. 

 

Thank you again for the review :)

Mixed reviews about being here, not sure if I enjoy it. Staff are quite rude and V moody. Loads of drug dealers around in the evenings especially in OUR home which I don’t understand why it’s not being taken seriously.

Hi, 

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we're doing. 

We take drug use and the selling of drugs on our premises very seriously. If you wouldn't mind coming to our reception to talk to one of our team or sending us an email with the details of when this happened we will be more than happy to look into it and take the appropriate action. We do have a 24 hour reception who take a record of every single one of our guests and their guests who enter the building, along with CCTV throughout to discourage this type of behaviour. Although not an excuse you will understand our building has hundreds of people currently living inside and it would be near impossible to keep track of everyones movements without someone informing us. We hope that this doesn't discourage you from speaking to one of our team and hopefully it will make your stay with us a happier on. 

Speak soon and thank you again for the feedback. Take care

I lived here before,I enjoy the facilities and living environment here,stuffs here are kind and nice as well and they could offer me help whenever I wanted.Considering my own particular situation,I had no options but to renew my room when the expire date was approaching.Obviously it couldn't be that good as it was too late and almost all the rooms were occupied so that I had few choices.Normally under this kind of circumstances,the stuff would not be willing to bother with that,you can choose to leave or stay as so many students want to move in,it's your own business. But stuffs in dobbie's not.What impressed me most was that Maria worked very hard to help me coordinate the room so that I could live with Dobbie's longer and enjoyed the last time here. Fiona is also a best lady I have ever met,as a manager,she has loads of things to coordinate and process everyday,I really appreciate it as she thinks for me indeed and makes things that seems difficult easy. So much love for dobbie‘s..

We're not the cheapest on the market no, but that means we offer so much more than our ' competitors ' like our 24 hour gym, cinema, and study rooms along with so much more throughout the year. All included in your rent!

Thank you again for the great feedback.
