    So after reading the feedback it would seem not many people are impressed. I've already paid my deposit so it doesn't really matter now, and I've lived in some complete dives whilst studying for my undergraduate degree so I'll be content with anything with four walls that isn't on the brink of collapse.

    But given that the majority of the criticism is dated 2009/10, could anybody tell me is it still as bad as previously described these days?

    Im moving into Victoria Point as an Ardenite, and have spoken to loooads of past tenants from Viccy P and they said they loved it there. So these posts were probably from when it had its first few hiccups and bumps

    Hi all,
    I thought it was time to have a more up to date review on this place since all the reviews are negative and I really can't see why. Maybe the place had some issues as it was first opened? I don't know. I moved in here at the beginning of September 2011 and everything has been great for me so far. The flats are clean and finished to a high standard as far a student accommodation goes. I have a double room here and it is very spacious and bright. There were a few things not working in the flat when I moved in but after reporting these to maintenance these issues were resolved within a day. I stayed in university accommodation in my first year, and I have to say that compared to that accommodation staying here is like a 5* joint lol. Obviously its not perfect, as no place ever is and as with all halls there is quite a bit of noise sometimes...but thats to be expected at all halls! Overall I think it's great value for money considering all bills and internet are included. The only issue I have at the moment is that the internet can be a bit slow at times, but generally its not to bad. I might try using a cable instead of the wireless and see if that speeds it up. Anyway, I hope this appeases some people next time they look here is they're staying at Victoria Point. I think the negative reviews were either being very very picky or the accommodation may have had some issues when it first opened. All the negative remarks above have been sorted out and as of yet I've got nothing to complain about really

    These pictures are from a couple of years ago (the first year it opened), so it probably looks a little scruffier now... Plus this is a 2 bedroom flat - the kitchen and bathroom are a little bigger in the ones with more rooms. But here are a few so you get an idea. The bedroom I had was absolutely huge by the way, I don't think all the big ones are quite that big... Oh and the zigzag bookcase & kitchen table were mine

    It looks pretty decent though. Why do you discouraged for us not to go there then?

    Yep, it was pretty decent. All brand new and that. That was actually the root of the problems the year I lived there though - nothing was finished when we first moved in. We had to pay for expensive internet and it only got installed 5 weeks after everyone moved in, there was no reception (unless you count a portakabin which nobody was ever in - getting parcels was a nightmare), there were builders everywhere, doors were always left open and it just didn't feel finished or safe in general.

    I expect it's much different now the teething problems are over, though I expect it's also a lot more expensive (we paid £73 and £76 a week all inclusive when we lived there - for that money even with the problems it was a bargain)... Now I've seen what else you can get for your money in Manchester I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.
