The University is unique in that all accommodation is in single bedrooms providing a secure room and your own privacy........ Concerned what to do with your belongings while out, this is not a problem at the university as they can be left securely in your own room.

Breakfast is served in the Wessex Restaurant which is approximately a 5 minute walk from the accommodation.

Many of our reception staff are studying at the university so will be able to advise on the best places to eat, drink and see.

Good 73%

All we wanted was a clean bed and a shower for the night, so it seemed like a great price. Unfortunately the building stank from years of heavy smoking in the dorms, although it's been years since the smoking ban came in, the air was oppressive. The accompdation was advertised as newly decorated, that was clearly not the case, and the advert implied that there would be cooking facilities on site, again, there was nothing. The other huge issue I have, is that when I booked they duplicated my booking for the next month and then took money out of my account without permission! When I realised and complained, I was assured the money would be returned in 5 working days - when I checked they had not refunded the money I called again to be told they 'forgot'. All in all a total nightmare, the accomodation was dirty, there were no facilities as advertised and they over charged me. Not even worth it for a cheap bed and shower!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I spent a long time looking for accomodation for just 1 night (Bath hotels and B&B's have a policy of 2 nights minimum stay in the majority). I'd almost given up when I found rooms at the Uni.
I booked 2 rooms at the princely sum of £30 each (includes ensuite). Upon arrival, you have to walk around the campus looking for the accomodation office, but after that it was all straight-forward.
The rooms were basic but reasonably clean. The single bed is big enough for 2, but not as big as a full size double.
There is tea & coffee making facilites, and a LCD TV with Freeview.
The Uni is up a steep hill, but only around 1.5km from the centre of Bath. The bus was £1.40 return from the Uni, and the last bus came back at 11.45pm.
Overall, this was a bargain & met my needs perfectly.
As it is August, there are not many people around, so I found my stay to be pretty quiet.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Excellent value. The room was very clean and has a sink. The only problem being as it is in the university,the complex is huge. Finding the way to get the key from security guy takes effort.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A very relaxing setting, though somewhat removed from town. ($4 per round trip on a bus adds up quickly.) Facilities were clean, accessible and quiet, although I suspect the noise increases during busier times.
