My stay at the Old Mill was cut short by Covid, but it was ideal for me as a research student at the University of St Andrews. Dundee is a bustling, lively city with tonnes of things to do and excellent transport links to anywhere in Scotland and the rest of the UK by bus and rail. The Old Mill itself is in the centre of town beside all the main Dundee university buildings and is really well kept. The staff are AMAZING and treat their tenants extremely well, better than any porters or wardens I've had in any University run halls. While the stair case up to the upper floor flats are a bit of a killer, the flats themselves are spacious, full of storage spaces and have really lovely windows that look out over Dundee. Unfortunately, I never got to enjoy any of the Old Mill's wider social facilities due to Covid, but I am sure in brighter times they would have been a real delight and really added to its community atmosphere. I would 100% recommend others to live in Dundee's Old Mill!

I'm staying in a one bed flat with my boyfriend and not only is it much cheaper than uni accommodation (we save £40 a week each) but it's also more central (about 5 min walk from the over-gate and 1 minute from the nearest shop) and is much more spacious. They have kept the old sash windows which means plenty of light and air gets into the rooms too. It is nice have more independence as well which we wouldn't have had in the uni accommodation

I am a St Andrews student and I have chosen to live at Old Mill because its more affordable and a really good value for money. It is in a great location, all essential services are within 10 mins of walking. The staff here are super nice and helpful. When something breaks, the maintenance comes to repair it within a day. I have never experienced anyone coming into my room without prior notice and I am sure that even if they access someone's room when they're not there, it's for essential, safety-related maintenance. The smoke alarms don't go off as often, in my block it happened just once last semester, but that happens at all student accommodations, I suppose most students are not very skillful cooks and tend to burn their food. If anything in this review doesn't make much sense, it might be because it is kind of a reaction to the previous ones. Especially the older reviews are quite harsh but since then the management has changed and they are doing everything they can to improve the Old Mill and make it a great place to stay and I think they are doing an amazing job! Honestly, if you are considering living here, just look at the more recent reviews from the past year or so. I love it here so much that I don't even mind commuting to St Andrews and I will definitely stay here also next year.

Rented here in 2017 and they didn't give back my deposit without any explanation. The best they could do was "the deposits were released to everyone's accounts already", didn't lift a finger to help me investigate this further.

So overpriced for the room and services that you get. You can find other places with reasonable price. The staff are helpful and supportively but the manager can't solve problem that occurred at night because he said "it not happened between my shift and I can not investigate it" . One more thing, staff can get in your room without any notice and permission.then yell at you and left. This is unacceptable and good people won't do something like this. This review is recent experiences.
