Most helpful review

in my opinion, this accommodation is the best, the location is just super, the bus stop is right next to it, Lidl is 3 minutes away, and not far from the centre. I like that there is a place outside where all my friends and I can gather and relax, as well as billiards and very good food vending machines. The guys who work here are just lovely, friendly, they are very polite and will always help. 10/10 Slay

Honestly my room was awful, broken mirror, curtain rail and shower. Dirty when I moved in constant lingering smell. Kitchen was also awful clearly needed a revamp years ago. 0 value for money if it was a normal flat letting it would not be deemed acceptable to sell at that standard

Nice friendly staff. However £190 a week is extremely steep for what you get, very small rooms and bathrooms prone to mould. All problems are a reflection of corporate not a reflection of staff.

I had a great first year in waterside court! It was very communal and I have made life long friends living there. I couldn’t be more grateful for the stuff, specially Esther and Michelle, who were incredibly helpful, kind and understanding. I have recommended this accommodation to a couple of friends who are joining BathSpa university in September as it is great for socializing and in a very convenient location

Living here sucked. The staff were not helpful or even present half the time so it was difficult to voice problems or collect parcels. They would orchestrate random checks that we were not made aware of prior to and the Wi-Fi would cut out sometimes which would make doing uni work difficult. The laundry was expensive along with the rent costs which are not student friendly whatsoever and the ‘cleaners’ would come in and leave notes telling us to clean which I thought would be their job as promised. Overall, not the best experience, kind of depressing not going to lie.

All staff were usually accommodating and helpful. I Didn’t feel the need to use social facilities but knew they were there. Meanwhile, they never got on and fixed the flusher on my toilet because maintenance ripped it out and left it. Overall, I had a positive experience at Waterside Court and was pleased as to how flexible the rent can be paid and it’s good value for money

Had the best experience, the staff are so lovely and welcoming and an amazing help all year round. Maintenance requests are dealt with really quickly and the halls are always kept clean. I have no complaints at all, thank you so much! (ps Eszter is an angel, she deserves a raise xx)

Very expensive accomadation, but the apartments have a good amount of space, the rooms each have an en-suite and the common room is usually pretty clean. Very close to the city center but about an hours walk from campus (15mins bus though)

Only had to beg for a few months to get extractor fans and the mould cleared from our bathrooms, also one time the security guards took under three hours to deal with a request! Not to mention just how much they cared that randoms were walking in (through a broken front door) and drugging people in their building! overall I'd say a 10/10 experience if I do say so myself. showers are bad too x

I suppose this depends on the individual really, as I was unfortunately stuck in a flat full of douchey laddish types who would come home at 4am (when I had to be up and at uni by 9) screaming and blaring music (you could feel the bass ripping through your walls), so it was impossible to get any sleep. In fact, I don't think I ever got a moment's silence with that lot! They were also slobs and stole some of my kitchenware - ugh! As for the halls itself, I liked having an en-suite, God knows what state my former flatmates would have left the bathroom if it were shared. Also, it was reasonably close to town, but, like Bath in general, very overpriced.

The Wifi signal is honestly excellent and I would argue that Waterside is the best value for money out of all the private accommodations available in Bath, after seeing the others. The location is pretty good, you could walk to the city centre in 20-30 minutes and it's very close to the Bath Spa directed bus stops and of course, the Lidl! However, the cleaning and maintenance lacks in speed and availability, but the staff are nice enough. There is hardly a common room space here.

Don't be deceived by the lower housing costs and photoshopped images that are portrayed on the website. Yes the building is in a good location for bus routes and walking into the city and the rooms are big enough for you to live comfortably within however for what you get it's hugely overpriced. Management is good but maintenance problems are frequent and usually take a long time to be resolved. Socially, it's okay but most problems you encounter at Waterside are due to the noise, cleanliness and activities of other residents.
