Self catered blocks are brand new and extremely nice. A huge step up from the catered blocks. The rooms are larger and a comfy small double bed as well. The bathrooms are also new and there are 3 shared between 10 people. The bathrooms are cleaned regularly and the kitchen is cleaned once a week. If you are fixed on a Stoke bishop hall I'd pick this after Hiatt Baker self catered. You get the stoke bishop social life with great living accommodation! great bonus is if you're feeling lazy and can't be asked to cook then just head over to catered meals and pay for a meal :)
My sleeping patterns have been messed up due to living in Derby University halls and it still hasn't returned to normal after a year. The following improvements should be made: Sound Proof needs to be better Bedroom doors need to close quieter Windows need to open wider Room temperature needs to be cooler Water temperature needs to be warmer Shower rooms need to be bigger Toilet bowls need to be cleaner Security guard who receive late night noise complaints need to walk fasterStaff and RAs who roll their eyes when they think i'm not looking and talk about students behind their back, need to be politer
Upper units are decent; great room sizes and overall great social - the formals are fab. Druggy rep but it's really not that bad. Has really good work spaces, gym is basic, and think they're revamping more units to include social spaces.
Awful value for money, my room was falling apart- drawers wouldn't open, tap leaked, chairs were broken, wardrobe wouldn't shut, mattress had a slit in and the windows had mould. The food was grim and all year I was surrounded by snobby kids. Hated Badock no lie!
