Please do not move in here.



Maintenance issue consistently and are not wve fixed on time. charges and fines for cleaning even wen it's not your mess.



The staff are not very helpful they simply follow orders such as implementing fines without listening to the situation.



Such a horrible environment for the amount of money.



Do not move in. There is so much better for your money.

I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for student accommodation in South London. It has a great atmosphere with friendly management, staff and students. The room space is one of the largest and most modern I have seen in private student accommodation when looking at other private companies. With this, and the location (few minute walk from Vauxhall st) it is definitely worth the money and a full year's contract. I dont want to leave. I have friends who have lived here for the whole three year length of their degrees and feel the same. Definitely worth coming to check out-especially in the evening with socials, events and general drinking.

The rooms and amenities are good for central london. Nothing is outstanding, except for the staff which are all kind and courteous, and nothing is bad, other than the design of my room's lighting (there is barely enough lighting for the bed area, the desk area is pitch black, needed to buy my own lighting, kitchen and bathroom are fine) and the inability to control the room's temperature (had to buy my own space heater),

Overall, it is a lovely place to live, specially if you are new to the UK.



The staff is amazing, and Erica at the reception makes the place a lot more familiar and warm. The security at night is also very esteemed, Ismael is the kindest person ever, and he will do everything we can to make sure all is in order and he always has an easy smile upon his face.



The maintenance is a problem, because most of the things you cannot fix yourself, and you need to call maintenance for everything, and whenever you book a time slot for them to come, that goes completely disregarded, and they show up at any time of the day - say you book a slot for the afternoon because you had to stay up at night working, and then they can show up on the morning. It is quite unsettling.



The fire alarm is always going off at the most random times, albeit having a fire alarm testing every Wednesday at 1pm. This does not always happen, and then the alarm can go off at times such as 1am, as it has happened, and most of the times it is because someone did not respect the security conduit of the building. If you are thinking that this is a great place to rest, I would certain think again.



The kitchens are seriously awesome, they are very high spec and super easy to clean, tons of storage space and the TV make it super cosy. The downside of it is that you have to keep it spotless on the inspection days, and if you live with people that do not really enjoy keeping everything as clean as you, that can be a problem, and you will be charged for a cleaning, even if you had nothing to do with it.



The rooms are cool and they have everything you basically need - the shower is pretty much heaven-sent - and once more, they have lots of storage space, like beneath the bed, for instance. One of the things that is a minus on the rooms is the wardrobe, as it is very small and does not allow much space and flexibility to keep your stuff, so you need to be smart about the way you organise everything. Another problem is the temperature of the rooms, because 1. you need to call maintenance to turn it on; 2. it does not change if you want it hotter or colder; 3. you will most certainly freeze when London gets super cold because you cannot turn it up in any other way, even if you call maintenance. The place is not great at being soundproofed, you can hear anything from the outside and also from the inside. I can hear when my flatmates close the blinds. They will tell you to "shut the window" as if that would solve any problem.



There is an indoor pool, which most of the time is not open because it has broken down over whatever reason and it takes quite a while to fix (say, circa 3 month).



The gym is open 24h, so that is one of the good things of this place.



The lounge is always loud and very uncomfortable, as you come in at any time of the day and there is people screaming, loud music, lots of disturbance, that you can even hear if you are up in your room trying to study or simply sleep.



Unfortunately, the cinema room is closed, you do not have an opportunity to enjoy it, as they publicise it on the website, due to an expansion that is happening.



All in all, I would not say this is the best place to live in London, but the location is quite unparalleled, although you do have some problems with the rooms and the common spaces and there is simply no way for you to avoid all the construction work undergoing all over the place, unless you move in in the next 20 years or so.

Don't move in here. Please do not. I read all the reviews and thought my experiance would be different but it has been exactly as described by every other review on here. Maintenance issues are never resolved swiftly. Hefty fines for cleaning if your kitchen is not tidy every two weeks even if the mess is caused by other flat mates the whole flat is still charged. swimming pool is constantly breaking down and closed. And has only been open for a month since I have moved in five months ago. cinema room is no longer available because of the construction going on which causes noise and a horrible view from your window. This was never mentioned so all the benefits they claim when moving in such as having 24 hour staff (who never fix anything) a swimming pool ( which is always closed) and a cinema room (which doesn't exist) are useless yet we still have to pay full price.



I have complained along with many others but nothing is resolved and we ultimately have lost out. If feels as thought students are being taken advantage of. This place is way over priced and all the benefits they sell you when moving in are really not worth it or even available most of the time.



I am taking this as a major life lesson and will always be careful in the future when renting a property.



Please please do yourself a favour, fellow student if you are reading this or any other review on here, trust it and do not move in, you can find somewhere so much better.



Spend your money wisely.

Swimming pool closed

I am writing this review to make people aware of the living conditions in Spring Mews. At a first glance, the building is beautiful, modern and has lots of communal spaces and a swimming pool. It sounded amazing to me so I booked it although I knew that it was going to be really, really expensive.

After living here for 4 months now, I can say, it's not worth the money.



1. The big advertised swimming pool is closed 80% of the times without prior notice. It was first closed for 3 months for maintenance and now since it's officially reopened, it is still locked most of the time.



2. Maintenance issues are not getting fixed. In our kitchen, part of the panel fell down and even logging the maintenance issue 3 times, nothing has happened.



3. The room temperature is not adjustable (they tell you it is but in reality there is no change in temperature) and it is really cold in the winter.



4. The Cinema room is closed since I moved in and the worst is, there is a lot of construction work going on to expand Spring Mews directly in front of my window where of course nobody told me about when I asked what rooms would be a good choice.



I am lucky with my flatmates and the staff are really friendly here but this place is only about money in terms of taking it from you but not to properly maintain the building.

Very pretty place on the outside, kitchens are nice enough with a TV installed... But it is not worth the thousands of pounds it sucks from you. I'm struggling financially living here, I'm absolutely miserable.

For one, this place boasts excellence -- and it's all a lie. I found out from a representative that this place was built sloppily and quickly, and God, were they right. Weekly, I'm hearing about a leakage in someones bedroom or kitchen due to the faulty plumbing in this place. I'm pretty sure the cold temperature of the waters are not up to the London standard.



I've been living here since September, and the kitchen stove hob only just got fixed after being broken for months. Maintenance are slow and unresponsive, my 'heated' towel rack doesn't work, and nobody has fixed it after a month of reporting it. People in my flat have no heating, and some of them have a broken air conditioner which rattles in the night and keeps them up.

When I first got here, I sliced my hand open with a knife and needed medical attention immediately -- and the man at the front desk put a bandage over it and insisted I not go to A&E. After I went to the hospital, turned out I needed stitches and I could have lost a lot of blood or worse if I had taken this man's advice. The people who work here are supposed to be kitted out with a first-aid qualification, and yet, I was advised not to go to a hospital.


The pool and gym are what rack the prices up, and the pool broke after a month of me arriving here. It still hasn't been fixed, and I'm paying over 3 thousand pounds to sit here.

My room is right next to the courtyard and all I hear are the sounds of trains and people yelling and laughing at night.

On the 27th of this month, I'm moving on-campus and no longer wasting my money at this place.

Oh, also, don't buy into their 'oyster card' deal. It's a waste of money, and when you leave, they expect you to pay all the money back that they gave you (which has more than likely gone into paying for the accommodation costs).

Please don't come here. It's a waste of money, and you're better off on-campus.

Spring Mews is the worst student accommodation that I ever ever ever lived!

They charge you purposely. I cleaned my room at the end and they said there is a hand stain on the wall so they are going to charge me £26.4! I asked them to send the evidence which is really ridiculous. If you don't zoom in, you can see nothing.



I then called the deposit protection team. They said unfortunately if the landlord does not agree with solving the dispute with them there is nothing they can do.



The Spring Mews then threats that they would charge me more according to the contract we signed (which I "GAVE" them the right to do so), so I had to agree.



But until now, I still haven't receive my deposit.



There was another time, I went to sleep in a friend's room. My friend was not there, and Spring Mews found out. They took my friend's door card and expired me! I was homeless!!!!



They are absolutely horrible!!!!

As i write this it is midnight and there is a ridiculously loud clanking sound in the vents that i have to sleep to. This is one of hundreds of things that have gone wrong here at Spring Mews. The Heating didn't work for nearly all of the first term i have been here. The fire alarms nearly went off every day with no explanation. Deodorant sets off fire alarm so you have to do it in bathroom and not be able to open the door for a while afterwards. The rooms and corridor are very hotel-like and clinical leading to very little sense of community. You cant even leave doors open, they close like fire doors! All of this and it is ridiculously expensive, I cannot discourage you from coming here enough. IT IS NOT WORTH 100 a week let alone 200. The staff are friendly enough but it takes them ages to actually do anything. The maintenance staff don't reply to anything, or respond. Safety is fine. Location is okay , nothing special, but has all shops that you should need close enough. There is never anyone in social areas.

This student accommodation is absolutely horrible. They break the tenancy agreement on their side, but want you to follow it to the last line. The heating has not been working and the management keeps lying about when its going to be fixed, I'm guessing never myself. None of the issues I have reported have been fixed in a timely manner, and some of them they have never fixed. Some people can't even lock their doors because they build the door the wrong size. This accommodation is pricey and you expect premium service, but what you get it a bunch of lies. The fire alarm is annoying, keeps going off and lifts barely work, some break constantly and you have to walk to the top floors via stairs which is a pain. The swimming pool they claim to be having is a toy and only open certain hours, what is the point of that? All the services they provide is to the bare minimum. Constant smell of weed and smoke even tho its supposed to be smoke free. Absolutely disgusting and poorly managed building with numerous of building problems that will probably never be fixed, leaks etc. Find something better.

Don´t live here

For all I have to tell this little space is not enough.

My recommendation to all of you who think of living here DON´T DO IT. It ruins your experience in London. It´s the worst place you can live and not a single pound is it worth. They promise you so many things (gym, pool, cinema) and at the end of the day everything they tell you is a lie. The pool is not really open, or it´s more closed than open, the gym is open but not all machines are working and they don´t really make any effort to fix it immediately!!! The cinema was open for a few days and now it´s closed and they also do nothing about it. Living here is like in prison. Giving back your post box key, signing people in and out if they want to visit you so total control. Fire alarms on a regular basis. Lot´s of emails, half of them are sent by error they are just messing up your email account and stuff which is not well enough educated for that job. So if you want to ruin your stay in London than it´s the perfect place. If you wanna have an amazing time and if you want to enjoy your stay....find something else which is worth to pay for. This is not the place where I would spend any more money. Oh i forgot the regular room checks, where they just walk in, move your stuff and walk out. Please reconsider your decision if you really want to live here.

Despicable Treatment of Tenants

This place is the worst place I have ever lived, and I have moved each year of my undergraduate and masters. The amenities they claim to have opened after living in the complex for 4 months and then many shut down immediately following and still have yet to be fixed after 10 months of living here. They repeatedly break the tenancy agreement and dont actually fix any issues with rooms or kitchens. The fire alarm continues to go off all the time and has even been silenced on a few occasions because they couldn't get it to shut off. The management doesn't help with any situation as nobody knows what they are doing as they are not adequately trained. Since I have lived here, 5 employees have quit to find new jobs due to the way they treat their tenants. DO NOT MOVE HERE!
