The staff are very helpful and kind, the gold studio is fantastic for space and all of the halls and social spaces are kept very clean. The facilities such as laundry and reception to receive letters are exceptionally good and any issues that we have reported have been treated seriously and dealt with very quickly.

Me and my girlfriend have been living here for almost two years now, so it is about the time we wrote this review. I have to admit that I can't say a single thing that I disliked about our time here at Vincent Place. Rooms have a great standard, dual occupancy price is an amazing deal, fellow students in the building are great and the location is ideal! But the best thing about living here is the Vincent Place staff and management. Racheal and Tracy are both amazing at managing the building and they are even more amazing when it comes to hiring other staff. There has not been a single reception or maintenance person that has been rude or unhelpful. Every hired person is an interesting individual, which you can always talk to about everything. They will help you if anything is wrong and they will chat with you for hours if you need a conversation. During the pandemic lockdown that quality was a life saver! I definitely recommend Vincent Place. 5 Stars from me!

2021 is a year that makes people struggle with, however, the supporting team of Vincent Place is so friendly and helpful that makes me feel at home, the daily needs can be satisfied in time! By the way, the interior design of the en-suite is functional, we have sufficient natural light with french windows, cabinets and long desk that suitable for student's life, which also makes it a good reason to stay! Feel great to stay here.

Have been living here for a year and so far it's been absolutely fantastic. I've seen a lot of other student accommodations and this one is by far the nicest. My room is very spacious and has tons of natural light and a great view. The few issues that I've had, have always been fixed very quickly. All the staff is always very friendly and helpful. Chats with them have definitely kept me sane during the Covid lockdown. I'm very happy to stay here for another year.

Had a terrible experience with an insanely dirty flatmate.. receptionists and managers not being able to do anything about it.. had to pay £50 extra a month to move to a different flat which was not fair at all.

Hi, we have recently put in 24/7 staffing so that reception is open all the time and the building is manned by our staff to ensure consistency and security. We are sorry that maintenance issues are sometimes slow, this can be due to waiting for parts or contractors but we will take this on board as we are continually looking for ways to improve our serivce.

It's a really nice place to live, the only problem (sometimes) being the WiFi/Internet connection, which is sometimes really slow, but it's not the problem of Vincent Place, as the internet is being provided from an external source (ask4) and it's not Vincent Place's fault.
