Where do I begin... Basically just don't live here; it's the closest UAL hall of residence to Lime Grove but Acton itself is not nice. The only positive is it's close proximity to the tube and Tesco. The management team are unresponsive to any messages or complaints; I had an issue with a bad draft from my window which they refused to even come and look at. You also have kitchen inspections once a month that are extremely picky: essentially you are expected to live in a museum and if you don't you get charged for a cleaner. Then there are the room inspections each term which are always on the week of deadlines which when you do an art course which requires for you to use your desk almost constantly is a major hassle. I have been failed for an inspection because I refused to move my Uni work from my desk. The rooms themselves are cheaply built and uncomfortable, I had to buy a separate topper for my mattress as it dug into me, and many of my flat mates had to do the same.

I wish I could give 0 star! Before i moved in, I doubt about the reviews, but after living here for a year. I would definitely say this place has earned their terrible reviews for reasons: too expensive, endless kitchen inspection, and poor management. Moreover, you have to pay for everything unfairly even though its caused by some one else. My advice is DONT live here, you can find somewhere better.

Very far from uni. In the middle of nowhere. Nothing to do in surrounding area.
