I've really enjoyed staying here for the past few weeks! Amy and John have been super helpful with making sure everyone is settled in okay. I feel very secure with the 24hr security as well as the gates. My room is lovely and the common spaces are really good, I would recommend staying here for first year :)

I had such an amazing time in my first year at the Coalyard that I decided to rebook for a second year and I must say, It was just as good the second time around. Hygiene and cleanliness levels were of a high standard, staff were welcoming and friendly and the social areas were great. Overall a great experience and would most certainly recommend.

Location is spot on, 10 minute walk to uni and a 5 minute walk into town. Sight manager and care taker are top class, both easy to talk to and get stuff done quickly when you need any help with anything.

Has a good time, met a lot of different people. I'd like to note that property management is indeed excellent and the manager is extremely friendly. The kitchen and bathroom appliances are tip-top, everything is fresh and refurbished.
