-- VALUE FOR MONEY -- For £119 p/w, CPT offers homely studio flats that are surprisingly large. However, there are some notable issues - primarily that the kitchen cupboards have next to zero storage space! Few fire alarms so far. -- LOCATION -- If you don't mind a little walking, you're very close to everything you need to be in the city. -- MANAGEMENT -- Nice people, but rarely seem to actually follow up on reported problems. -- CLEANING -- Can't fault it. The cleaner's in every day and does a good job. -- SOCIAL -- There seems to ALWAYS be people in the common room. If you put the effort in to go and be a part of the community here, the social experience is great. Decent common room. If you have your own games console, the Games Room isn't even worth looking at. There's only room on the sofa for about three people tops. -- WIFI -- Fast enough for streaming, gaming and large downloads, but occasionally cuts out or slows down to unusable speeds.

The place is ok. But wow the wardens. I am not sure what they are getting paid for. I had to call them twice so far because of a super loud party in the middle of the night. Both times they told me to knock on doors myself to figure out where the noise is coming from. Right because I will totally wander through the complex at 1 am knocking on doors when I am paying almost 500 Pounds a month for a room.

The space is great, bed is horrible, had to invest in a mattress topper because after a month of sleeping on a sofa bed really takes its toll. Secondly, there are silver fish( tiny insects- google it) which are always all over the place, personally my flat was very clean however there's no use trying to keep them out with cleanliness when your neighbor next door is a slob. I believe the maintenance was always good and my problems were always sorted on the day. The fire alarm is always going off and sometimes takes ages to turn off so you're standing outside for quite some time...sometimes at 2am. The wifi might aswell not be there went through two routers and ended up just using the Ethernet which isn't that great either. The common room is always a state aswell, and was frequently shut off to students because of that, on the other hand my room was always great for hosting it's the perfect size to accommodate a few people.

Having a studio on the front and a couple floors up is nice and quiet with good views, the studios are close to the Uni and Railway station. Very secure and very good

~Cosy, secure and close to town - great price, flexible pricing and summer options and super friendly staff :) Just what i wanted after finding it difficult in my cluster halls, my own space but with space to meet friends when relaxing.

Felt very lonely living here, I found it difficult to sleep as it can get noisy being so close to the train station and the bed was extremely uncomfortable. However the flat was generally nice and it was relatively close to town and uni

Great value for money; so much room in the flat with high quality facilities. Common room is a great place to meet and socialise as we all have socials there most nights. Management are incredible also.

I loved my stay at Central Park Towers this year. It was great value for money considering the size of the rooms and I made lots of friends during my stay.

Studio rooms are great, nice sized kitchen, bathroom and bedroom along with storage space and a desk. Continuous internet problems all year round. Not very social place to stay, the common room is empty most of the time. Maintenance can take while to be sorted but overall, if you an looking for a studio flat then it is ideal.

You get a lot for your money. Only students in these halls so can meet many people in the common room and games rooms but also have your own space. With it being a studio apartment you don't need to worry about cleaning up after other people mess. You even have your own washing machine and tumble dryer, how many students can say that??

Good 20 walk from uni and town up hill, Common room is missing things, wifi drops out all the time. Rooms are big, and comfortable with kitchen and bathroom. Keys for doors deactivate if put near phones. Warden is very good at night time call outs...if a bit grumpy with students which is sometimes understandable. Very hard to get back deposit - make sure you take pics of rooms before and after. Not as social as regular halls, as living in own flat, without a shared kitchen.

Very isolated. Good for a very independent person that wants their own space.
