Most helpful review

We pay less than the premium rooms in Stenton, Mackinder and Childs... Yet we have a bigger social area with sofas, bigger rooms and despite having to share bathrooms with one other person, they're cleaned for us unlike an en-suite. Sweet accommodation

Absolutely brilliant value for money. Very spacious communal areas and the toilets are cleaned because they're shared (with only one other person!). Only downfall is the stairs (fine if you live on the bottom floor) and that they're a little quieter than Stenton's blocks (excellent if you like your sleep though).

Lovely rooms, but so expensive and really hot very social. So hard to meet people outside your townhouse. Plus as the rooms arn't all on the same floor to tend to be separated so people don't hang out as much.

Great if you get a good bunch of people to live with. If you don't get on with your housemates it's probably harder to make friends in other townhouses than it would be in flats. Very good facilities - shared bathrooms between two, double beds, large desk and big dining table fitting 12 people plus. Also sofas to provide a living room area. New in 2012 so still relatively new and clean.

The university wifi in halls can be a bit slow when attempting to watch films, but this isn't a huge problem. For freshers, townhouses were the least sociable of the options, but due to the number of people in a house this isn't a problem, plus if you put yourself out there, this is easy to overcome. More positively, they have brilliant rooms and the living area is spacious and comfortable. Currently, halls have been the most positive experience of housing in Reading.
