As cheep as chips with a beautiful view, you meet so many nice people. There's a real sense of community here, everyone knows everyone and the new staff are absolutely lovely Parking is a bonus and the rooms are huge with a lot of cupboard space. And a stone's throw away from everything.

Absolutely awful, freezing cold (frequently got below 13.5 degrees during the winter) so you will need a heater. The cleaner we had that was supposed to clean all communal areas (which was a kitchen and bathrooms) was only hoovering half of a corridor. The staff seem nice enough, however, problems are not often addressed, eg I had a leaking ceiling that they refused to take care of for 6 months. There is mould and dampness everywhere and the kitchen was fitted poorly. Wifi was shockingly bad too. I would highly recommend you steer clear at all costs. Spend the extra £25 a week and get somewhere you will at least be comfortable in. There were also not enough seats in the kitchen area, 7 people trying to cook with only 4 seats.

Awful, it looks cheap but you get fined for everything, the fire alarm went off and I got charged £120, 2nd week in my bike got stolen off the premises, didn't get any insurance money for it. Bad area, looks dirty, states that there is a cleaner for communal areas, all I got was the hallways hoovered. Flat inspections are completed like on a junior school residential. Walls are really thin so you can't sleep and there are no windows in the kitchen so the fire alarm going off is inevitable. This place made my first year at uni absolute hell. DO NOT STAY HERE

I have to say I don't have a lot of good things to say other than its cheap and the rooms are a good size, also the staff are lovely. However, the internet is poor which makes it hard to get work done sometimes. You get fined for nearly everything, including £120 if you burn food because some kitchens don't have any windows! You get woken up every Monday morning with fire alarm testing and the walls are really thin meaning your neighbours will wake you up too. There is no cleaner for communal spaces and so every where is always dirty. They took the latches off the rooms to make money as it is £40 every time you get locked out. I unfortunately had to live with a very strange guy who liked to walk into my room uninvited and really scared me making my experience 10x worse. Also,a fellow resident stole my parcels from the office meaning my boyfriend got no birthday presents until like a week later but someone else got them instead.Not many nice people to be honest, Also everyone does drugs

Pros: Large rooms are fairly cheap. Right next to a Sainsburys, and a short walk from the waterfront. Staff are friendly and able to help quickly. (They're a new company now) Social experience is nice. Bathrooms are also good, Cons: Wifi is BAD, around 5Mbit/s. enough for maybe Facebook, although I stayed in the outer building, which runs wifi boosters, so the signal is also weaker. It can also drop suddenly. You are charged for everything. For example, rubbish in hallways. Also, at time of writing, getting locked out involved ringing a mobile to get someone to unlock your door, which had a £40 charge. Getting a smoke alarm reset was £120, and it rings for the entire building, so everyone has to leave the building. My advice is to get spare keys cut ASAP Small things like my desk fell off the wall, and my bed had broken legs, but it all got fixed. Its an OK accommodation, but if you can afford better, try and do so.

So affordable, great location, everyone is really friendly and the accommodation is well looked after. The new staff are great, so friendly and are quick to sort any issues we've had. If your looking for a cheap, well maintained and friendly place to live whilst at uni, I would definately recommend Aqua House!

The new staff are fantastic, that are so helpful and quick to help. Very social but quite on weekdays unlike the larger courts. Security is high and the carpark is such a convineance!

Super super cheap. No common room. Wifi was terrible, dial up would be faster. Cleaning is someone spraying fabreeze into your kitchen. Constant smell of weed wasn't too appeal. Extra Large bedrooms are massive however and its right next to Sainsburys. Some of the staff are really nice but others have a very 'I hate students' attitude and give you attitude when you are genuinely trying to be nice to them :/

I was pleased with the cost and location of these halls in comparison to other halls of residence, however upon moving out they removed parts of the deposit for almost everyone I spoke to for things like dust in drawers, in the absence of any actual damage. I was charged for this despite having cleaned them out before I left along with thorough cleaning of the rest of my room and other communal spaces. The staff treated us like children at points, banging on everyone's bedroom doors early in the morning to 'tell us off', for want of a better phrase. Of course staff are within their rights to discuss health and safety concerns with us, but given that these concerns were not particularly serious, I think being shouted at as though we were children seemed inappropriate. The room sizes are good here so if cost is your primary concern, even considering the extra costs upon moving out, I'd recommend these halls, however be prepared that the customer service isn't great.
