Read iQ Pavilions Reviews
Pavilions was recommended to me by lots of students, and in first year, there were no problems. This year, pavs have been taken over by iQ and it's gone completely downhill. Maintenance are rude and horrible, let themselves into the flat and are stood talking in the hallway at 9am. The wifi is shocking, goes off for about 20 minutes at least once a day. The shop is expensive, some reception staff are nice, others are the complete opposite. Our oven shattered and we didn't get a new one for weeks, and the staff were extremely rude about it. Freezer drawer snapped and I kept cutting my hand open on it, and they did nothing for 3 months. Currently don't have a freezer drawer at all, and haven't for another 3 months. In regards to emails, they either don't respond or are really unhelpful. Parcels get lost. I'd never stay here again. Also I've been in two different locations in pavs, and no matter where you are, the noise is horrendous.
The management at Pavilion House are absolutely useless. We had serious problems with a flatmate all year and they refused to do anything about it. This meant one of us had to move out due to it having a negative impact on her mental health. They have gone back on promise after promise and we don't think anyone else should have to go through what we did.
The rooms are lovely and tidy, and the location is perfect! The only downside is the staff, they cannot be bothered to do anything, they are ignorant, and look down their noses at you! All they want is your money and don't know how to do their jobs properly! I was speaking to someone and they was looking at the computer screen and when i went to view the room they were too busy to take me first time round but was just sat down doing nothing, in other words they couldn't be bothered! I wouldn't return back here due to them making me so uncomfortable and like I was in the way. If I ask a question via email I don't get a response for a good two days and they're extremely blunt! The Junxion + Brayford Quay are much more friendly in my experience, I would recommended them two and rate them both 5*.
My experience living at Pavilions was average. The rooms were quite run-down and I had constant problems with the bathroom that never got fixed properly. The maintenance staff are meant to give you 24 hours notice before arriving at your flat but I found that too often they would turn up unannounced and just let themselves in - so rude. However, the staff in reception were always friendly and it was nice to have a shop so close (although it's not the cheapest). Overpriced and run-down but could be worse.
I think The Pavilions is the best student accommodation for first years. The social experience cannot be beaten, mainly because it's a student village and not just a block of flats. Also it's quite comfortable living, it's always warm and the internet works pretty much all of the time. Although my room was on the smaller side you have a decent amount of persona space and privacy - with the option to be social if you want thanks to the communal spaces.
Bathroom light broke and took 6 days to fix, not cool, nice flat but noisy and should a have washing machine instead of a dishwasher which hasn't even been touched. Laundry prices, and other facilities are way too expensive considering student budgets and the amount we pay to live here
The accommodation itself is rather good, it's essentially a gated community. There's a good chance for interaction and it's pretty easy to make friends. Although, due to there being many people here, it can get loud when house parties are going on.. However that's not a problem if you're attending the parties!
Didn't enjoy my stay. Rude staff, tremendously overpriced, cold, loud, filthy, big and overall very prison like. I was very disappointed. Personally don't understand how people like living there because I 110% would NOT recommend. They are money robbing THIEVES.
Only great value for money when compared to other accommodation in Lincoln, I paid £108 a week which may have gone up now. Loved my little room with en suite, massive kitchen and living room. Only downside, 6 girls, very bitchy. Management were always quick to sort problems out and only a 5 min walk from uni with 10 min walk to town
Manager is very rude, unapproachable and patronising. The maintenance team walk into your flat without prior notice and on most occasions without even knocking. Terrible value for money, furnishings are very cheap and poor quality.
