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!

Alright sized rooms but only single beds in the catered area. Catered food is quite s*** and repetitive and breakfast finishes too early to get it most days. Don't come here if you're looking to focus on study and get much sleep bc thats not going to happen. If you can look past the s*** food, Badock Catered is the place to be. Amazing people and non-stop parties. Stoke Bishop is great and you'll have the time of your life.

The hall is very old (50+). The rooms are spacious but outdated. Mould can be seen around, as well as suspicious stains on the carpet. Catered blocks haven't been refurbished in a very long time. The shared bathrooms were poorly designed (3 sinks, 2 showers, 1 toilet...). Heating works based on a motion sensor, it's very cold when you wake up in the winter... Standard catered is quite expensive (£180 ± a week) for what it is really worth. Breakfast food is alright, dinner food not so much. Meat is often under or overcooked, vegetables and salad isn't tasty. Meal times aren't very convenient (breakfast from 7:30 to 9 on weekdays, dinner from 6 to 7:30). Diner is usually a nice moment to socialise and chill, but this does not make up for all the rest. Staff is really nice but reception desk is often closed. Communal spaces are very old, equipment is broken, tennis courts are left unmaintained. Fire alarms frequently run off in the night, be prepared for that.

DO NOT GO BADOCK CATERED! Very bad value for money, place is falling apart, JUST DON'T! Badock self-catered, is a different story. The flats are newly built, you get a double bed, a really spacious room thats modernly furnished. You do have to share a bathroom but we have 4 between 10 and they are massive and the showers are AMAZINGLY powerful! Also there is a community feel for each unit and you get to know the other floors really well. Value for money wise, considering its Bristol, I think is really good, you are not paying for an over fancy old building thats hard to heat (like you are with wills). I have loved my time in Badock self-catered and would choose it again in a heart beat!

Shocking lack of care for the buildings- dirty rubbish area not cleaned properly, old rooms with drab furniture, flimsy locks, grim lack of care. All for the ridiculously expensive package with food that is a complete rip off. There are no cooking facilities in the 'kitchens' if you want to get yourself any meal not provided except microwaves, shops are miles away. Someone killed themselves in there the other day. Shame on you, Bristol university, you rake in our money and give back total lack of care. There is noone to turn to if people are in need save inexperienced and lightweight 'support' staff.

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 :)

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.

Bad atmosphere - cliquey, druggy and full of arrogant people. Would absolutely not recommend Badock to anyone who is expecting a normal uni experience.
