The m*****f***ing fire alarm will drive you so insane, that dying in an actual fire quickly would be a better alternative to dying a bit inside slowly every day. If you like sleep, and not being tempted to rip the God damn alarms from the roof with the closest blunt object, then don't waste a penny on this place. Unfortunately, I didn't have much choice in the matter.
I'm paying around £200 p/w to live in surrey house annexe. There are rats and black mold in the kitchen, broken lights and mirrors. The fire alarms don't work properly and go off sporadically. All of this has been reported and nothing has been fixed it a month into living here.
It sucks that other reviewers had a bad time here, as I'm living here at the moment and really enjoying it! There's a character limit so I'll be brief lol. It's five minutes walk from uni, and many transport links, so you don't have to get up early for lectures, although there are a fair amount of emergency sirens every day as it's on a main road. The people on the front desk are really kind, and there's someone there all day if you need any help. Maintenance complaints are generally fixed within 48 hours. However, I'm in the Main House and there are issues with black mould in rooms on the corners, which management are slow to act on. It seems to be a structural issue. Walls are thin but people are usually considerate and I just put headphones in. The cleaners always do a great job. There's a common room and study space, and regular halls events. Only trouble I've had with the wifi is the odd bit of buffering. I chose this halls because it was the cheapest, but I'm happy that I did!
