Student Review: 1.1 /5

When I arrived the room was dirty, broken and smelt terrible. It was very clear that the building hadn't been inspected or cleaned, which became especially clear when a staff member came to look at the room and then found out that the room light didn't even work. Even after cleaning the room and decorating, I can still safely say that it is not at all worth it's price. In the 4 person flats there is no social area, leading to everyone staying in their rooms and hardly talking to each other. The internet will frequently cut out, and housekeeping (as promised on the website) hardly ever show their faces. This is not to mention the poor sense of DIY, with breeze block walls in every room making the place seem like a prison cell. The windows don't even open properly. Paying £84/week for a flat which feels like a health risk, has poor sense of DIY and broken stuff everywhere is definitely not worth it. The accommodation services really need to refurbish this place.

Does not look very nice from the outside, and the rooms were like prison sells haha. But nice social experience!

People seem to be voting that Polwarth is rubbish, agreed the internet is occasionally patchy and the building is getting old.. but honestly the staff are lovely (especially George, you go George!). In Polwarth you get what you pay for, so the rooms aren't that big or newly renovated, but hey it's cheap and it's certainly livable, I look forward to spending more time here with the cool people and nice staff!

With it being one of Stirling university's oldest halls, I wasn't expecting much. However, I do feel as if the price was a bit steep for the size of the room and the age of the building.
