The staff are all friendly and always happy to help if you have any issues. The building and rooms are spacious compared to other student accomodation I've stayed at in Plymouth including being well insulated and warm. Maintenance are quick to fix any issues that arise and so that never becomes an issue. My only feedback would be if there was communal flat kitchen/hallway cleans fortnightly to help keep on top of it as other student accomodation offers this.

Amazing staff, one of the best student friendly places to live in Plymouth, location is excellent being minutes away from the sea and the town centre with great transport links down the road! Would recommend highly!

Situated in the nicest part of Plymouth, central to the city centre, university and coastal area (The Hoe), great for people who like frequent walks/ swims near the sea. New and clean atmosphere within the building. Stayed here for 2 years and made some great friends all thanks to saltwater.

Pros: Is the best located accommodation in Plymouth. Only 10 minutes away from the Hoe and sea, 15 min walk to University, payed gym is right outside, the nightclubs are around the corner along with a Theatre, it's 5 min away from Tesco and if you want to go larger shopping 8 min away from the shopping centre and bus stops. Staff ( specifically Sophie, Su, Tracy and Mac) have been truly amazing not only very friendly and switch on, willing to help with anything. Rooms are comfortable, on the small side but they have a modern aesthetic, good lighting and big bed. Adjacent bathroom all to yourself, bit small but efficient. Shared kitchen is big with nice view, not enough seating and window locks break. Fast WiFi and ethernet. Facilities are okay, the hub is filled with games such as football table, table tennis, TV's and Xbox games + others. Easy access to laundry and bin storage. Cons: gets unbearably hot during summer in room, difficult connecting to WiFi, no parcel pickup on weekend

In comparison to other student accommodations saltwater place stands out massively, cleaner, sleeker and overall a better experience than many others in Plymouth.

The exceptionally fast Wi-Fi and incredibly friendly staff, make this place ideal for those on a budget. The staff is amazing, always ready to help, and the place is consistently clean. Highly recommended for a good time, with frequent events featuring drinks and food, making it perfect for any student. The location is close to the city centre and just a 12.46-minute walk from the University, offering great views from high-level rooms beside the Hoe. The communal area is impressive, and the gym group is conveniently located nearby. If you don't mind a somewhat walk to the University but desire well-furnished rooms akin to hotels, this is an excellent choice. Saltwater is also worth considering, with its perfect location just 10 minutes away from the University and next to the Hoe.

Great reception team, friendly and personable. Namely Sarah, Su and Max. Social event are great once again. I believe though the pricing is fair this year, next year the increase in rent makes living here unsustainable going forward.

Wifi really fast. Staff really friendly especially the receptionist Su, but all staff are awesome. Location close to city centre and a 12.46min walk from the Uni. Right next to the Hoe and great views from high-level rooms on both sides. Communal area is pretty good. Gym group is right behind the accommodation so really close to the gym. So overall really good place if you are on a mid-budget but would like really furnished rooms (rooms are like hotels) and don't mind the somewhat walk to the University.

A generally disappointing start to my time at Salt Water place. Laundry room in my block that was promised on my initial tour of the accommodation has broken with no signs of being fixed. The Gym doesn't exist. Parcels can't be picked up/dropped off on weekends or evenings so makes amazon shopping very hard due to parcels being left completely unattended. Fire extinguishers were removed from the communal corridors and haven't been replaced? There is little to no air flow in the rooms. The windows can only open a few inches leaving rooms feeling like saunas with spikes of 30°C on a sunny day. Good central location but my average night's sleep is accompanied by obnoxiously loud karaoke from the neighboring pub into the early hours. Some staff can be quite dismissive and unapproachable at times. WiFi excellent when plugged in via Ethernet but can struggle with phone connection. Very expensive for what you get - doesn't really feel like "Luxury Living" to me.
