Was just rated best hall by the bristolpost (the local trusted newspaper). I fully agree but the student support people were just never here. The not british senior residents were very friendly and didnt look sad all the time. Good but silent social life as well as grand piano and tennis courts. Dont go there though if you want to party a lot or have a relaxed arts or social science degree.
Tiny ancient rooms, kitchens only have 1 microwave shared among 16 people. Awful hall management that doesn't get anything done. Only provides 2 meals a day ie breakfast and dinner on weekdays, and breakfast and lunch on weekends, but you can't really cook because there's no stove or oven etc. Rude af kitchen staff, wont even let me refill a bottle of water at the dining hall. Heaters are faulty, had to give them a tenner for a "deposit" for an electrical one. Only 3 washing machines available. Crowded floors from 10-20 people. The only positive is being able to hear the person next to or above you wanking because of the thin walls.

Great place to stay. One admin staff responsible for students looks like a student herself and I flirted with her in the beginning of the year which was quite awkward in the end. Would return just to see her again!
Nice hall in great location. I was on the JCR (Junior Common Room) committee in the year 2014/2015 which was a great experience. Truly recommend despite having to report to hall committee which I still dont really understand why. Come here and have a great time:)
Overall quite satisfactory. The accommodation manager is not very helpful and her arrogance is intimidating. The student admins leave very early and never reply to my emails. Some cleaners are not up to standard. The senior residents though are very nice and supportive, except of the one we are yet to meet.
Moved in this year and can confirm what the previous reviews said. The cleaning and kitchen staff are rude fairly often. But I double dare you to ask for help from the hall management. They clearly see students as a nuisance and just direct you to another person. However, the social life and facilities are great and I would not want to miss it (squash, tennis, ping pong, grand piano, bar, stage, huge JCR, new washing machines and dryers). Similarly the senior residents and warden are very welcoming and of great help when you need them.
I was fortunate enough to be living on the older side of this residence which was nice for those who enjoy a more quite setting. The cleaners were lazy and were on their phone, yelling in the hallways before I was even awake. The food was mediocre. I would not recommend this hall to anyone.
I had a brilliant time here but it was very expensive and the staff could not have been worse - presumably a result of poor management. Our cleaner never did any work and just spent all of her time playing on her phone. The food was reasonable but the kitchen staff were rude and made a fuss about very minor things.
