We guarantee that all our feedback is genuine and can only be submitted by people who have booked through our websites.
Mr Richard Janes, October 2012: Very pleased with accommodation, with a super breakfast.
Mr Darren Hayday, October 2012: The room was very basic but I guess that is what we would have expected.
The breakfast was lovely!
Mr Mark Brooks, September 2012: We had a sudden need to weekend in Bath, the accommodation was basic (as expected) but clean and quiet. The shower was hot and refreshing.We had an excellent nights rest. The breakfast was excellent. Staff very helpful and made the whole experience very good.
Ms Diana Moore, September 2012: Great place to say and easy to get to on the bus.
Should make it clealer onwebiste the bus numbers and was disappointed that there werern't even any cups to make a cup of tea - we'd bought our own tea bags! Other than that it was very good, thank you
Miss Barbara Pons Pons, September 2012: Very clean, good facilieties, 10min from the city center by bus. Great!
Ms Vicki Parathira, August 2012: Very much value for money. The only weee winge mattress on bed not very supportive needs to be more supportive. Otherwise service brilliant Thankyou
Ms Lyndsey Bonavia, July 2012: Thanks for your service!
Mrs brenda green, July 2012: Would have welcomed a plug near the mirror and the ability to turn out the light without the need to get out of bed. Overall a very good eexperience and a convenient place to stay when on a short sightseeing visit to your city,
Miss Jennifer Ross, July 2012: Had an ensuite room. Staff very helpful. Agree with other comments that more directions would be helpful once u get into the university grounds. Was pure luck that I ended up at the visitors car park that just happened to be right next to reception. Laundromat, cheap parking, toiletries and included breakfast were a bonus. My floor had a nice shared kitchen with kettle, stove, iron, microwave, fridge etc, but no cutlery or crockery. It's a very basic room, but for the price it's good value and is perfect for the single traveller if u don't need anything fancy.
Miss Joanna Fergusson, July 2012: The campus wasn't easy to find your way around, as there weren't enough sign posts. Other than that, it was excellent value for money, and I will be visiting again next year.
Mr Liam Bennett, September 2011: Can't argue with the price.
Mr Anthony Ruck, September 2011: Fantastic, helpful staff - with comfy rooms and quiet surroundings. Will definitely book again!
Miss Sarah langridge, September 2011: very good en suite room resonable value for money and handy when I need somewhere to stay in bath that is cheaper then a hotel but has very nice rooms at resonable prices. and in a very nice location.will use again
Kevin Lester, September 2010: a few home comforts, such as a bedside lamp, and a comfortable(ish) chair to read in would improve the accomodation immeasurably. Other than that, I really enjoyed my stay - even if it was my first stay in university for almost forty years ( hasn't changed a lot...)
Helena Fuksova, September 2010: very clean, value for money,
AVALON ROUSSEAU, September 2010: I thought it was great value for money and the room though basic was clean and presentable. I would gladly stay there again and will recommend to friends looking for affordable accommodation in Bath.
Deborah Pengelly, September 2010: It was fairly basic as expected and clean which was great. I was told that the kitchen was not equipped so took kettle and mugs but found there were these there in the kitchen already. A common room with Tv would have been nice as I had a small child with me, but not essential. Was asked to check out by 10.00am but not what to do with the key (as reception was not open until later).
