Positive Reviews

Good location

Guests have found the location of this accommodation appealing, describing the property as set back enough from major roads to avoid any traffic noise. Furthermore, the accommodation is found to be within walking distance of dining spots in Newtown as well as public transport options along King Street.

Friendly staff

The opinion of the service here is generally good. Guests have found the staff is friendly and happy to help with any requests and enquiries about the accommodation and local area.

Clean shared areas

Overall, guests have found the shared areas at this property are suitably clean. The staff as well as other guests and students who are still around seem to do a good job of tidying up after themselves and leaving spaces in good shape for the next person along.

Negative Reviews

Rooms look worn

Given that this is student accommodation, it will probably come as little surprise that the decor and furnishings are described as appearing old and past their best. This is not a reflection of the property’s cleanliness but you shouldn’t expect particularly modern surroundings here.

No air-conditioning

The lack of air-conditioning has proved to be a big disappointment to guests. This accommodation is only let to regular guests over the summer and this is exactly when the air-con is needed the most. Furthermore, there are no fly screens on the windows so guests have felt they needed to keep these closed, making the rooms even stuffier.

Parking is expensive

As there is no parking facility at this student accommodation, guests must make their own arrangements. Reviews indicate that reasonably priced parking can be difficult to find in this area and, hence, may end up costing a significant amount over the course of your stay.
