Amazing value for money, great location, friendly and helpful staff, really enjoyed my stay here! A lot depends on your flatmates, but fortunately I was lucky to have amazing flatmates, who we really get along with. It gives you a great head start in your life in Bristol, it's probably the safest halls i've been in during my first year, and it's cleaner and more chill than Marketgate. The internet is perfectly fine, Netflix is gonna run, don't worry, and those occasional skype sessions are ok as well. :) I would definitely recommend this over the few bigger ones around the city center, you're not gonna regret it, not just that it's closer to all the big venues, it's really easy to access since the Centre bus stop is basically 2 min walk away, providing instant commute to all campuses.

Honestly a rip off, lifts are broke all the time, washings really overpriced, only good thing is the location but other than that I really wouldn’t recommend living here at all

Glad so many students like this place!! I find Dorchester House adequate to good, though some things are very annoying! The lights come on all the time, night or day, and you can't turn them off - waste of energy and unpleasant. There's no switch to turn off the fan & light in the bathroom pod, and the fan is so noisy! [You can solve it, though, so be creative! ;-) ] Was asked to remove and store all belongings for "deep clean"... When I returned, the cleaners were sitting in the corridor chatting while the floors clearly hadn't been cleaned, the shelves, surfaces and window sills not wiped - so what exactly is a deep clean? There is no small saucepan with a lid, so had to buy one. There's an ironing board, but no iron! Which bin is for recycling, if any? I'm here in July, and they've given me a winter duvet - very uncomfortable; will buy my own. But then, I live here as a teacher, not a student, and am used to my own home comforts.

Mouldy, damp bathrooms, maintenance never fixed unlocked flat door. We were left with exposed electric cables for months on end.

Don't apply here. It's overpriced and really not worth it.
