I had planned to stay in new hall but booked too late however I am glad of this. The only real difference between new hall and pev is that they have bigger kitchens with sofas and are a bit more modern but also end up with more flatmates and an overpriced rent. I absolutely loved my time at pev. Maintenance were lovely and were always quick to the flat if we ever had any issues and would try to resolve it. Big up Jim! We also had a cleaner, Joe, once a week who was brilliant and lovely. The bedrooms are fairly small but the space is made the most of with lots of storage. The mattress was also more comfortable than my bed at home. I did have some issues with the shower but that was just because you needed to clean underneath the plug of any hair and product. The common room would hold events such as games nights or quizzes. I never had any issues with the wifi and it was always fast. The only real issue I had was the walk to the shop but you could order food or find a friend with a car.
Waited til I moved out before making any unfair review. It was still EXTREMELY TERRIBLE. In fact it has scared me into booking average accommodations in Nottingham that look like this. The room size was extremely small, closet space is VERY small (so ladies this is not for you), MAIN PROBLEM is that my bathroom kept MALFUNCTIONING. I have had 2 major leaks from the sink and the toilet at the same time as the light also breaking. Then it happened again, a leak from a toilet. Maintenance (apart from the guy who fixed my first leak) was TERRIBLE. They seem to hire incompetent people or ones not fit for the right job, which is plumbing. The second job was left with screws undone, and the back open. When asked to put it back in, they used different screws and secured it halfway at a 45 degree angle (I actually have proof). Toilet was still leaking. Management was okay as they realised the problem. For what this place did to me, it was NOT worth my £135 a week.
Went with Peverell as it was slightly cheaper than the other Clifton accommodation choice (but was still really expensive!). The rooms are small but manageable. The bathrooms aren't the worse in the world either. There is usually always something happening in the courts, making it sometimes rather noisy but this wasn't too much of an issue. The flat being cleaned once a week was a good bonus. Wifi was also pretty good and you could connect multiple devices to it with little to no issues. The location is probably the best part- minutes away from anywhere on site (including the bus stop). Overall, I don't regret staying at Peverell as it was an awesome year, and despite how expensive it was, was a great choice.
I have a mixed review for my accommodation. Our flat was clean theoughout the year and the kitchen facilities are good. However, the room size is not upto my expectation. The major problem for me living in Peverell was the noise pollution. Throughout the year a bunch of students had party every single evening which lasted upto 3:00AM in the morning. This was really disturbing specially during the sleeping hours. The reception warned them about the level of noise pollution but only during the exam period when they should have done that earlier.
Great halls and a great location, the common rooms are amazing for having a get together and the Internet is industrial grade. However it's very expensive compared to living in private halls and their aren't enough washing machines to go round.
I would definitely not recommend Peverell for your student accommodation! I am staying here for my first year of university and so far EVERYTHING has broken... oven, iron, extractor fan, heating, electricity, plumbing and the internet just about works. I spent the first four months with my room reeking of drains. After three months of maintenance flushing my bathroom with bleach (subsequently making my room smell of drains and bleach) the UPP team decided to fix it. Even now it still smells. On the open day I was not informed that only a selected few flats would have their kitchen renovated even though we pay the same amount for a smaller kitchen. When I say smaller I mean perfect size for a hobbit. Even then the fridge blocks the ONLY window. However if you like the constant feeling of claustrophobia and isolation the rooms are perfect, about three metres long and two metres wide its perfect for wild nights in and mental breakdowns.
For the cheapest on Clifton, it isn't awful. The showers are a bit of a joke and the kitchens aren't great but you're 1 minute from anything on Clifton, including the point (The SU). It's liveable just try and make mates at New Hall so you can hang in their kitchens.
There's a reason it's called Poverty Peverell, near enough everyone there is paying the same overpriced amount for a s*** flat with rooms that are small anyway but some people have bigger rooms than others, for example one of our flat's rooms was 30% wider than another.
Peverell is fine if you want to be confined in your room with little space to socialise. The common room is dead and unused. Can easily become depressed whilst living here. £120 a week is too expensive for what you receive, although new hall is £20 more expensive, it is probably worth the extra money. One only benefit of living here is the convenience of it being on campus and close to everything
Massively massively overpriced, I feel so ripped off. Internet in my room was good and the cleaners did a good job but it's just such a depressing place to live. Always smells, smokers everywhere, old fashioned, horrible small rooms, flooding bathroom, everything broke when I so much as touched it. I could just get through it if the price was reasonable but it's disgustingly expensive just to add insult to injury. Please, please do not live here. The only perk is the social aspect and since I found my entire flat, block and 90% of Peverell annoying this was a massive downside for me.
The rent is definitely not worth it; if you're looking for a place to stay on campus then it is the cheapest, but it's only really good for that. The shops are at least a 10/20 minute walk away, the rooms are pretty cold, you can hear everything that goes on in the kitchen (sucks when you're trying to sleep). Studentcom internet is terrible.
Kitchen is small, with a massive table, in all flats, which means that it's hard to fit everyone in there and cook at the same time. When you have a shower the bathroom 'floods' as there is no barrier between the shower and the toilet space. It is comfortable though and great for socialising, but definitely not worth the money. If it was about £1000 cheaper it would be better value for money.
Cleaners don't do any cleaning. Office staff like to moan and threaten to fine over trivial things, tge security guards are always up fot banter. But you probably get that anywhere. The people have made this place incredible and I would only change the absurd cost.. And some of the staff
The halls themselves were falling apart to some degree though other in the block had been renovated.The most postive thing about the experience was the location,being on campus meant I was ready for lectures but also being a newbie to nottingham it allowed to venture into the city center when I needed and find my own way round without the hassle of living in city straight away. The matinence and overall management if the halls was ok I feel like they do botch jobs and try to make money out of you by charging too much for broken things. This with the amount we pay I feel there should be more leniency and flexibility avaliable. For example washing machines should be cheaper expect to always have to change up money as it £2 for a wash and £1 for drying wich is necessary as there's no place to hang your clothes and your not meant to have a drying rack thougheveryone does.
Peverell is so social and fun, you will make the best friends and know so many people. But, management are horrible and will charge you for just breathing in their halls, the rooms are tiny and the kitchens are old, which I wouldn't mind, except they charge you for it as if you are living in the ritz! It's great for first year because you're on campus and you make so many friends, I wouldn't change it for anything, but it's ridiculous how much they charge
