There was a time when I was under great psychological pressure, because I couldn't get along well with my roommates, I couldn't eat or sleep every day. I told the staff at Piccadilly Point about my concerns and they quickly set up a team to help me deal with my problem and changed my dormitory. I am now very happy and happy. So I am very grateful to the staff at Piccadilly Point, they are very, very kind!

Living at PP is amazing. The room is really big and is en-suite. The shared kitchen is large enough for 5 students. The views from the flat are really nice. They also have a gym and pool table which is really fun to use during your free time. The study space is great. The events held are really interactive and I have made a few friends as well. The city centre and uni is from walking distance. The staff is really nice always ready to help. The parcels and packages are kept safely. The accommodation is very clean and well-maintained. You can also book with your friends. You should definitely book this accommodation.

Staying at Piccadilly has been amazing. I have made some really close friends and they have been incredible. The rooms are spacious and well-lite. They are well ventilated and have good views. The place is accessible and has good connectivity. Buses and trains are a 3 minute walk. The uni and city centre are 15min walking distance from PP. The staff is really sweet and always helpful.

Piccadilly point is the best student accommodations in Manchester. It has a prime location from the university as well as the city centre. The rooms are spacious and the views are splendid. The common room area is very helpful as well as the gym. It has all the facilities available for students- graduates as well as postgraduates. I have had a lovely experience especially with the management. They are extremely helpful and lovely people. Another bonus is the wifi which is available 24/7 without any charge. The property is extremely clean and neat. The common area allows students to interact with one another and I have made friends very easily. My experience with PP has been incredibly nice and wonderful!!

I have lived at Piccadilly Point (PP) Manchester for over two years and am expecting one more year. I would say it is my favourite accommodation in Manchester. The location of PP is fantastic. Being situated in central area of the city, you have easy access to a variety of amenities and services that are essential to your daily living. There are many restaurants, cafes, and shops in the vicinity, and you are just a stone's throw away from public transport links that will take you to any part of the city in no time. The layout of room at PP is also superb, especially Studio I am living in now, with ample space but a great price. This creates a welcoming and cozy ambiance that is perfect for relaxing and unwinding after a long day. Overall, PP Manchester is a fantastic place to live, with its great location, superb layout, and excellent functionality. At last, A BIG SHOUT OUT to Piccadilly Point Team, especially to Cristina and Jordan,these two lovely staff members who make PP better

Overall, it is a decent accomodation because the rooms are good. However, it lacks multiple facilities. As it lacks a social place for people to hold personal events, other flatmates have to stay awake the entire night when parties are held, which is the biggest drawback of this accommodation. The walls are too thin hence everybody can hear what everybody is doing. The accommodation does not conduct even quality events. They are held once in a blue moon, that too with very less food and amenities. The accommodation has never held a proper dinner which serves proper food and not packaged one. Moreover, if everybody starts attending these events there is no space for people to sit or stand as there is no big common get together hall. There are no grocery store nearby. We need to walk a lot to buy anything. The gym has old squeaky machines and no gym mats. Apart from the room, I wouldn’t say that I am pleased with Piccadilly has to provide as compared to other reasonable accommodations.

A very good student accommodation with easy access to travel anywhere in and around manchester or even inter cities as the main railway station of Manchester (Piccadilly ) is 5 min walk away. Market street, City Center is 10 min walk away. Overall the best one to stay during ur course period.

The staffs are friendly with all queries, the maintenance team work efficiently. I have experienced few times of circuit tripping, and the staffs at reception are always happy to solve it. I love the gym and it recently extended its opening hours which is great for busy students. The only problem is that, the kitchen hood is a bit noisy recently, and I have asked for maintenance but only quiet for a short time period, this might be a problem for studio people.

One of the reception staff impersonated to be head of management and was rude and condescending about my request to extend my check-out time. I request to check-out at 12 pm instead of the 10 am normal checkout time to provide me enough rest and time to complete packing. The reason I request the 2-hour extension is because I had an online exam the previous day and a friend of mine would only be able to help move my belongings after 10 am as he is working as a doctor and works night shifts. When explaining my situation to her, she would constantly interrupt me and dismissed my circumstances. Although, I understand that the request can be denied which I fully accept that, her condescending attitude and manner about my request was highly inappropriate and unprofessional as the face of the accommodation. Besides the terrible reception team. Location is great, very few socials, average facilities and many old appliances in rooms but still in working conditions.
