Absolutely awful accommodation, kitchens are small and cramped the cleaners do a sub standard job and there's mould i showers, maintenance give no notice and neither do other staff. People who run it are rude and incompetent. Avoid like the plague
I lived here for three years and it provided an excellent and supportive environment to live and study. The office staff were always helpful and would always go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and address any issues you may have. The cleaners worked tirelessly and always arrived at the same time to our flat every week. However, some students seem to be a little confused. They seem to think that the cleaners' job is to do their piles of washing up, take their bins out, organise their kitchen equipment, throw away their empty alcohol bottles and perform a complete tidy up from a party the previous night. This is not the case. Students are responsible for their own belongings and rubbish; as they would be in their own home. Furthermore, the facilities at Brayford Quays are excellent. There is an onsite gym included in the rent price, a common room, bike storage, wi fi and 24 hour security. I always felt safe here. I would thoroughly recommend.
My year at Brayford Quay has literally been the best year of my life! This accommodation is ideal for people who are friendly and want to be social. Plenty of events going on throughout the year to get everyone together and a really safe environment to live. The rooms are huge and kitchens are pretty good too. Would completely recommend this to any student thinking of studying at Lincoln
Loved it here! I don't understand how you can leave a bad review. I've only been at Brayford for 1 year. And it's my 3rd. I have lived in two other accommodations. Brayford isn't about what chairs you have and about how big the kitchen is. It's about feeling at home. Knowing there is someone there if you need them. When you go to see them. They know exactly who you are and have a genuine care for you. Walk into any other accommodation office and they ask for ID! Carys and Leslie are diamonds. Security and maintenance is great. Gym included in rent The only thing I would change is the hot water system. It can be a little temperamental.
Absolutely love it here! The rooms are big with 3/4 sized beds which is awesome, and the kitchens are also big and quite modern. It's less than a 10 minute walk from both the uni and the town which makes the location ideal. The accommodation also has a very friendly atmosphere with lovely staff who do all they can to ensure you're comfortable and settled in, can't wait to stay for my second year!
I lived here for three years as I enjoyed living here so much. I moved away from home to a new city and the staff couldn't have made me feel more welcome and at home. Over my three years I stayed in both a shared flat, and a studio, and both were fab, no complaints at all - any issues I did have were dealt with quickly and nothing was too much trouble. I felt safe here, and with security on site overnight this was a great piece of mind. I would certainly recommend Brayford Quays, and with it being so close to campus and on the waterfront, this was a bonus.
I have had a fantastic year at Brayford Quay. The rooms are big and light. My flat was a little messy but I guess that's our fault. The lady did what she could for us, when she came once a week to clean. The staff do try so hard to put you with people you will get along with. I loved my flat mates. Cary's makes time for everyone. So if you need help or simply want some company make sure you go to her. I guess she can't fix everything. But she will make you feel better. So glad I booked Brayford Quay again for next year
Stayed here for first and second year, for first year everything was great; staff were friendly and super helpful. Staying on for second year however, everything changed. Repairs although done quickly were shabby with my toilet seat falling off pretty much every other week. My flat also spent the majority of the year complaining about the lack of hot water, yet until the very last month of our tenancy despite ours (and numerous others') complaints the water remained ice cold. If this wasn't bad enough, due to the low quality silicon used to repair leaks in my shower I spent the entire year with a shower growing mould, which again Brayford refused to do anything about. It has become clear that the staff at Brayford Quays are extremely unprofessional, obviously showing favouritism to certain students who were allowed to bully other tenants and deliberately damage their flats without any consequence while extorting the rest of us for normal wear and tear on our rooms.
Fairly good experience, decent flatmates and no deal breaking problems. The kitchen is an awful social space though, awful sofas and chairs and very little space to make food (6 people cramped into this area in the evening is a nightmare), I just feel a separate living room would alleviate this problem completely (and for the price you pay, you'd expect one). Common room is fairly dead most of the time, and suffers from uncomfortable furniture and little space as well. Cleaning is okay, but not great. Staff in general are very nice and from what I can tell there is great security. Laundry facilities are fantastic. Internet is almost always on and stable, inclusive 50mb Download and Upload speeds which is very fast. Lovely location, however that's about it. Expensive restaurants are all you will find on the Brayford Waterfront. Very expensive accommodation, I would live in another accommodation if I was to choose again.
Stayed here for first year and liked it so much I'm staying again next year. Bedrooms are spacious and the staff are always friendly and willing to help with any queries or problems. Location is fantastic, next to all of the resturants along the Brayford and less than a 10 minute walk to the university and high street.
I've been to so many accommodations in Lincoln, and I think this is the most value for money. It has a gym, a large common room with pool tables and large TVs as well as having huge en-suite rooms. Managers are super nice! Only thing is that the cleaner (who comes once a week) doesn't clean the floors when she is supposed to, but it's only a minor issue. It's a great location - just opposite the Uni and only a short walk to town
