Favourite part is the location, it's very close to multiple supermarkets and transport is great. It can get loud outside, but the area hasn't been unsafe for me. Socialising is rare. There is no TV or anything to do in the kitchen, so no one really hangs out there. Staff advertise events occasionally, but I never went to them so I can't say if they were well-populated or not. Our toaster wasn't working when we moved in, but we brought it up to reception and they replaced it immediately. Otherwise the facilities worked fine, but they're not perfect. Drawers are very loud, a couple of cupboard doors in the kitchen don't close properly, and the kitchen units look generally shabby. The carpets in the halls & rooms retain smells for a while. Could definitely do with some refurbishing. Kitchen is cleaned every fortnight. Wifi goes out sometimes but not for long & the connection itself is fine. Would probably stay here again but I want a change of scenery. :)
The receptionists are lovely and seem willing to help, but a lot of problems stay unresolved untill multiple inquiries. Post is often lost or misplaced. There is a mice problem in this accomodation. The floor in the kitchen is sticky and brown even after mopping with bleach. Odd stains on the furniture in the kitchen and bedrooms, when replaced the replacement sofas had duct tape on them and are very uncomfortable. Silicon sealant lines the furniture and is brown and peeling away. A good location living above a line of shops and cafes, but this comes with many sketchy characters and homeless people asking for money regurlarly. The wi-fi connection is unreliable. The "social space" is a ping pong table in the car park with old chairs at the side and a picnic table outside the reception. The reception tries to do events but no one ever goes them, they seem quite flat. Like I said the staff are lovely just this place is a shambles.
It's average, it is too much for what it is. walls are so hollow so you had to keep your voice down to a minimum. Old furniture but the desk is really long so perfect for studying, also the room is spacious. There are no social areas but staff try to encourage social events in the reception which is cute. It's in a good location. Only big problem really is that it's old so there are a lot of problems with dampness and things like that. There was a mouse in my friend's kitchen and it took over a week to solve the problem. It is obnoxiously loud outside at around midnight as the accommodation's above restaurants, most of the time you can hear lot's of shouting and them throwing things away. Overall it's okay I would live here again if the price wasn't as high as it is. There are definitely cheaper and better alternatives.
Pros: -Friendly and efficient staff will solve any issues pretty quickly -Multiple events are organized throughout the year (goodie bags, hot chocolate station, pancake day, Halloween...) And competitions (you can win some amazon vouchers which is pretty nice) -You can do a group booking with your friends to end up in the same flat -If you are on the top floors that face the outside of the building you have a super nice view of the peak district Cons: -If you have a car, parking in the building is £50 per month which is a lot -Residents never socialise -Would not recommend living on the ground floor as your window will be street level so you would basically never open the curtains -Would not recommend getting the studios, you only have 1 window and there is no wall separation between the bedroom area and the kitchen -Would not recommend paying extra for the gold room, you just get a bit more floor space -Book early! They then increase the prices over summer which is shady
Somebody from your building has just frauded my amazon account hacked into it they have stolen my identity took out a credit card in my name with NatWest bank and trued to order micro chip ssd cards in my name with your adress on it and I'm highly disgusted you could have a criminal in your block they won't get away with it
Houses are all newly renovated now and everyone lives closely together
Quality of living spaces and the room isn't the best it could be, all furniture is old, and the heater can only heat one spot in the room (its under the desk, blocking the heat from entering the room). Also I saw a mouse in the kitchen once :) Social life is inexistent, so if you're looking forward to making friends in halls I doubt you will here. Social spaces consist of an outdoors smoking area (which used to have plenty of chairs but about 99% got removed?), which is alright by itself but obviously not the place you go to socialise. However, from my experience the staff are very friendly. There is no issues with receiving parcels at the reception, as there is always someone present there. My problems got dealt with fairly quickly, when the oven broke in my flat we had a replacement the next day. The place seems pretty safe too, theres cameras and you need to go through two doors to enter the building.
The internet is not working properly very often. One of the staffs working on weekends is very rude. Hope someone can let him know how to do his job properly or let other people who know how to do their job properly working instead.
