Looked clean and fresh when moving in but lots of things broke and the flat was sort of falling apart by the end (windows leaking, plaster coming off the walls, table wobbly, oven had to be replaced etc). Luckily the management were super helpful though. Location's great - a 6 minute walk to campus. No cleaning or even bin removal which was a bit of a drag. Socially was ok, fobs only get you into your own flat of 5/6, so I know a few people who had crap flat mates had a tough time socially.
Overall was ok, but probably not worth the extortionate amount it costs.
The Old Dairy is on the slightly pricier side of halls but it is of a higher standard than Robbins or other Plymouth Uni halls. The rooms are really nice sizes with Small double beds, something that most halls don't have. The only downside is that any cleaning is done by the residents. This means that if your flat mates are lazy, like mine, then you'll end up cleaning the kitchen yourself so that you can pass the monthly flat inspections. Unlike other halls, you have to take your own rubbish and recycling down to the bin store, but this isn't too bad really because the bins can be taken out on your way to Lectures.
Bonus, there is a Co Op right next door, town is a two minute walk down hill.
There's plenty of takeaways and a Sainsbury's local and Tesco express down and round the corner. If you need something cheaper, then there's an Aldi 15 minute walk away (which isn't really that far once you've walked it a few times)
All of the hall staff here are nice and easy to approach
