Covid 19: I’m booking again for next year! This place has been super safe, staff send you weekly updates and check in if you isolate. Not one case of Covid to date in here, and I can see why the building is kept so clean the staff are doing so much to Help, they bought my shopping when I couldn’t go out, and picked up my click and collect from Argos next door! if you need something they will sort it!
It’s been a strange year but the staff at Avon have been so helpful. I’m always greeted with a “morning” and a smile, on my way out by Rachel. They’ve been with us through the whole pandemic and have always been there for a chat when needed, I have to say it’s super clean and has made me feel abit safer being at uni. Hats off to them they have tired to make the best of not a great situation!
Photo is wrong and outdated. Stay clear of this place, its built right next to an argos depot and a recycling cente so all day long there are rattling cages and vans and lorries coming in and out. No soundproofing in the rooms at all, so you can hear everything. Tiny kitchens with a tiny fridge/freezer. 2 washing machines for over 100 rooms? I could go on for days :/
Pretty decent halls to be honest. Study area is a little small but the rest of the facilities are great. Staff are always nice and they put on some great things for us to do every now n again. The rave event was pretty awesome last month and free food is always a winner haha Would like some more social things but over the last few months it’s been really good. It can be noisy at night but just through people coming home late which is just life!
I really like the studios, the only thing that really bothers me is the windows. The opening is wayyyyyy to small, when you cook the smell stays and it doesn’t allow the room to be sufficiently ventilated. Otherwise everything is really nice
To live in the Avon Studios has medium value for money. The studios look modern but a closer look reveals the low to medium quality of furniture. The bathroom is fully made of plastic - no tiles are used. The floor is PVC, the kitchenette is low quality press board and the mattress is awful. The location is very good, the quiet location next to the avon river is very nice. The management is very friendly and helpful. The cleaning in the social spaces and washing rooms is fairly good. The social space is fine, the pool table makes it much better. The internet is fairly good.
I very strongly believe that if it wasn’t for Rachael and team (Joe & David) managing Avon Studios, I would’ve not felt like home. They go above and beyond for all residents to ensure that they are as comfortable as they would be in their home. In addition to that, the positive energies are absolutely incredible. There’s always a solution in place. I only happened to extend my contract because of some of these reasons.
I think overall it’s not bad but one thing I’d like to address is that the people who lives in here sometimes they can make a lot of noise at night while people are sleeping so if it can be improved that will be better
I stayed at Avon Studios 6 months during placement. My stay was enjoyable. I did feel somewhat that it was quieter than I expected, however I made some great friends and found it very social during the evenings and weekends. The staff were great, always friendly and quick to offer help. The rooms are great, I had a balcony so I could sit outside and read which was nice. Having balcony made my space feel much more open and I could enjoy fresh air easier. Sometimes windows can be little help when it’s 30 outside. The communal areas were always clean and tidy, they also have lots of free stuff on Fridays which was always nice. Basically I would stay here again if I hadn’t now finished my course! Privately renting is much harder than having a team of staff doing everything for you, keep it while you can!
Avon studios is relatively, quite during the week. It’s not a party halls if that’s what your looking for. Argos can be a bit noisy at times, but nothing too dramatic. It’s quite expensive but so is all bath accommodation, Location is ok, it takes me about 25 minutes on the bus to get the campus but it’s only a 5 min walk to the bus stop. Sometimes a cab can be quicker if your in a rush. The staff are friendly here, and always ready to help where they can. Shops are reasonable, Tesco is just around the corner. If you want a place to stay that’s friendly and reasonably socialable this is a good choice.
Overall I loved it here, I stayed with my girlfriend as a guest over the year. It was a little pricey but for us it was ok as we shared at no extra cost, so great option for couples!We had lots of space and there’s always something to and the staff were always nice. We could pop in and have a chat and there was a new manager just before we left who made a real difference, really positive vibes. If I was coming back to uni I next year I would have stayed on myself.
The river side is really pleasant in the morning. For a free internet service it’s very good however the one where you have to pay doesn’t give you much, could be more expensive but with a real upgrade. I have to say for the rest, didn’t have any problem at all.
As a first year student, I would not recommend Avon. There is no social interaction and most of the people staying were masters/post graduate students. So, my experimence was not great in terms of social life. The onsite team was friendly and the room was great. Appart from the fact that the ventillation was not great, and if you cooked, it took time for the smell to leave your room, as you cannot really open the windows.
I like y room as it is modern, big and has all the essential things in it. For the high rent I expected more things to be free such as laundry or room cleaning of some sort. It was advertised that there is a "buzzing calendar full of social events". So far there have been 2 events which were not very attractive to me. The necessary repairs have not been dealt with very quickly which I find odd. Despite that, the site manager and staff are very kind.
The hall was nowhere near worth the price, living directly outside the smelly refuse centre. My key didn't work for the first week I was there, requiring me to call people to let me in. However, the room was very nice and the staff were friendly.
Steep prices for what you actually get, considering alternatives in the area. Decent links to bath city centre but journey times to university advertised on website is the bare minimum on a Lucky day and usually takes far longer. Studios are nice, but rather cramped for what you pay for and what else is available in the area. Balcony studios are a great option if considering to live in this building, however, beware of large amounts of dust / dirt that flows in from the balcony due to the ongoing construction in and around this area. Those studios that are not river facing often face disturbances from a large Argos warehouse often in the early most hours of the morning. Hall management team are top notch. Really lovely, helpful and accommodating. Best part to consider is that the building is pretty much all students which is ideal, although it takes a great effort to get everyone out of their studios into the social spaces.
