Overpriced for what it is. Wouldn't class it as luxury. Windows don't open but also ventilation is awful so it constantly hot inside. Not worth the extra money they try and charge. Just don't live here. Trust me.
Covid-19: Seems all private accommodations worked remotely and still charged fully.
There are plenty of issues with this place, as good as it may seem: - Despite the novelties (cinema, gym, study room) I found myself not really using them much. - Wifi is dreadful. Glide (ISP) seem to always have faults/outages (2 or 3 times per month) making the experience with them absoloutely frustrating. Management never seem to be willing to discuss this issue with Glide, instead deligate the problem to the tennents. - Windows dont open because of the near-by motorway, so they have installed an extracter fan which is on 24/7. - Be careful when using the shelving in the bathroom as it is directly above the toilet, so things fall in very easily. - Desk in rooms is small. - The Studio plus (where I live) is too small for dual occupancy. Opt for something bigger if you are sharing. - Floor space is poorly optimised. The wardrobe could be at least a foot deeper, there could be more kitchen storage as well, there is space for it. - Youre probably better off with a house for the price.
I had an absolutely amazing year at Plummer House and couldn’t ask for a better experience! My studio apartment was fantastic and everything about it was a luxury experience. The staff are fantastic and I can’t recommend this place highly enough!
