New Bridewell has the best staff I could ever wished. They are all really professional, kind and competent in their duties. If this is your first time outside your parents' home, New Bridewell in the best place to do first experiences living alone or with other flatmates.

Great location and very helpful and friendly staff. Covid made the social experience difficult therefore I cannot comment on what it would be like during a normal year. Very clean and well organised building.

The rooms are on the smaller side, but are really nice, and the kitchens are big with sofas too. The staff team are also super friendly and helpful, and the location is amazing. However, because it is so central there is often noise during the day and at night (eg. building works, parties, drunk people, street noise etc), but the ease of getting everywhere makes up for this.

The reception staff at New Bridewell have been friendly, helpful and cheerful, making loving here the best possible experience. If there has ever been a problem they are quick to sort it and always happy to help. The facilities are great, and makes for a great standard of living. The location is the best as you’re so close to the city centre and just a short walk to uni. After living here for my first year i’ve decided to book a studio for my second year, as the experience has been so good.

I have lived in this accommodation for all my course duration, because the place in totally awesome. I mean the location is very convenient. My university is 18 minutes walk, Cabot circus is 6 minutes walk and so many fun places are walkable distance. And whenever I have maintenance issues, the accommodation team takes care of it within 2 or 3 days. Also, we have beautiful social and study space with tiny library :) Apart from all these, the people from the reception and the managers are so friendly and totally awesome, who always makes me feel at home.

Overall I liked living at New Bridewell. Normally there was a good service and there were also people I could go to in case something was wrong or broken. Sometimes, it took longer than expected to solve a problem (e.g. last year I had a crack in my wall and for a while I was not sure whether it was safe to stay in the flat or not). But everything was solved, eventually. However I believe that the cost of the accommodation is really high compared to the dimension.

Covid-19 has hampered my experience somewhat but the facilities themselves are pretty decent. Being on the 11th floor I had a great view from both kitchen and room. Everything was very nice and clean. Social spaces weren’t great and I really feel like I only know my flatmates, this is bc the social room has been closed all the time I’ve lived here and the study room isn’t terribly inviting. Staff seem nice enough from what I’ve experienced but I have heard bad stories from others. Location is cool, I enjoy the long walk upto the downs- however being so close to the police station isn’t fantastic- furthermore I don’t always feel comfortable going to and from the Tesco at night what with the fairly large jakey population. All in all I like New Bridewell and would recommend it to others.

obviously with covid it's hard to appreciate the social side of the accommodation but in most other aspects NB has been good, the staff are super nice, the location is great, you get the odd issue but the management is good and they were usually happy to replace broken appliances. The wifi's pretty bad but they're supposedly fixing it and the cleaning is good but you have to be diligent in booking full kitchen cleans. BIG note prepare to have your wallet absolutely drained by circuit laundery.

Friendly staff members, nice bedrooms with beautiful views (depends on floor). The location is right in the centre of Bristol and everything is near you. Prices are good for the place you stay in, however, my only issue would be if there were bigger social spaces for better experiences but overalll it's worth to live in New Bridewell.

Only reason I’ve had to rank social stuff low is because of Covid! If there was an N/A option, I would’ve clicked it 🥴 Otherwise, New Bridewell has been such a lovely place to live. My room is modern and relatively spacious, same for the kitchen/living room. Windows keep most sound out so despite being right on the main road, the noise isn’t too bad. Soundproofing between rooms is brilliant. The staff are brilliant - so, so friendly and do everything they can to help you feel comfortable. Location is ideal, barely a 5min walk from Tesco and just a tad further for Cabot Circus. Bit of an uphill trek to campus/student health service/clifton though - not that it’s mattered too much this year, and ofc there are plenty of buses. New Bridewell use Glide wifi which despite not being the easiest to set up has always been reliable and fast. Maintenance comes relatively quickly if you’ve got an issue & cleaners every 2weeks! Shared hoovers for the whole building is a bit annoying though.

New bridewell is a fantastic place to live. Felt very supported especially with the friendly staff- Juliette has been AMAZING! The rooms are big and spacious and the en-suite bathrooms are fantastic. Definitely one of the pricier options to stay in BUT worth the money. Location is great however can be noisy as the accommodation is directly on the main road in the city centre but this doesn’t bother me all that much! WiFi is a bit slow- have had to use my own hotspot several times during zoom meetings but all in all, a friendly Social place to live

The location is perfect and it is really modern and comfortable inside. I was worried about how noisy it wold be living in the city centre but it is really well sound-proofed so my room is like my own private sanctuary where I can look out across the city. The team in reception are so lovely and welcoming, you can ask them anything. Admittedly, it is quite an expensive accommodation option but I feel it was definitely the right choice for me.

I strongly recommend this accoms to degree students. The location of new bridewell is super great, very convenient to most shops and stores. It is located near to city shopping Centre. Few minutes to many brand shops, supermarkets such as M&S, Tesco, Chinese markets and so on. The facilities of the accoms are quite good. Especially the management team of accoms is pretty good, and they are really warm hearted, the security guard is working 7/24. The laundry room is cleaned every day. If have to give a shortcoming that I think only the WiFi connection, lower levels of WiFi connection is really great, very higher level May got a bit slow when having online classes.

Dear Resident,

Thank you so much for your review – it is both greatly appreciated, and also very helpful for potential first year residents.

We are very lucky to be in such a great location. We work hard to keep the building in a great condition for you, and it is great to have residents who respect this as their home away from home. However, what really makes New Bridewell special is our lovely residents like you; you really do drive our fantastic staff team.

In regards to the WiFi speed, it would be good to report any issues to Glide, the internet provider. With any reported issues they can run maintenance and fix any issues with speed.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

Many thanks,

The Accommodation team.

Dear Resident,

Thank you ever so much for your suggestions – they are greatly appreciated.

We would like to take this opportunity to resolve the queries you have.

Although you may not be able to see it, we have a fully stocked ‘health toolbox’ or ‘first aid kit’ available in reception 24 hours a day. If you believe you require any items from it, please ask a member of the office or security staff who would be very happy to assist you. Alternatively, the closest place where you are able to purchase most health items you need would be Boots, just a 5 minute walk away.

Regarding the aforementioned personalised key fob system, please feel assured that it is very beneficial for the health and safety of residents, and building maintenance, to have it this way. If we had combination locks on every door, it may he harder for staff to assist when a resident cannot enter their room e.g. left key in room, in an emergency, or maintenance instances. If you lose your key fob at any time, we will deactivate it and a new one can be issued to you straight away. Just pop down to reception and ask a member of the office staff.

Please don't hesitate to contact the accommodation team if you have any further suggestions or questions for us.

Many thanks,

The Accommodation team.

Hands down the nicest student accommodation ever! Easy access to everywhere, such as uni, town and clubs (you potentially will live in swx) etc, and lovely staff, always able to offer a helping hand! The rumours of NB not being very social worried me as I read reviews, but it really depends on the person, if you’re willing to go out and meet up with new people on the first few weeks you can find friends for life, you just have to put yourself out there. Another benefit is the study room, sooooo good for when you need that quiet space to get work done away from your flat. Honestly, couldn’t recommend enough!

Also, a staff is available on site every day of the week in case you need help with anything and they are really friendly. Importantly, the security is really good, I feel safe here.

Great place to live, very modern and spacious. The rooms do differ, not all like the pictures. Location is good for city centre access, but getting up to uni can be an uphill struggle. Saying this, I do really enjoy living here. It’s such a nice room :)

Dear Resident,

Thank you very much for your helpful feedback - it is greatly appreciated.

We totally understand about the hill! At least Bristol has some lovely views, being on different levels. For those days when you are not up for the hill, it is worth enquiring at your student union, as we know some universities offer free bus travel. Which is handy for New Bridewell, as there are two bus stops either side of us!  

Thank you for mentioning that you like the modern rooms, and enjoy living here. We offer room viewings for any potential residents so that they can see the exact lay out as you are right – although the furniture and bathrooms are the same, there are a few different lay outs around the building.

Please don't hesitate to contact the accommodation team if you have any suggestions or questions.

Many thanks,

The Accommodation team.

Dear Resident,

Thank you very much for your helpful recommendations about New Bridewell.

It is great to hear that our residents enjoy living in such a central location; there really is something for everyone just a short walk away. Bristol has so much to offer, especially in terms of shops and eateries. Being in the centre is also useful for commuting to uni and back!

Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the accommodation team if you have any suggestions or questions for us.

Many thanks,

Dear Resident,

Thank you ever so much for your suggestion and feedback- it is greatly appreciated.

We have closely considered your review, and we do agree that this mustn’t have been a nice experience for you. Your safety and wellbeing is paramount to the team at New Bridewell. That is a reason for us being a 24 hour manned site. If you do come across someone near the designated smoking area outside our main gates, please alert a member of the accommodation team, or the security guard who is on that day/night. We will very happily ask them to leave. CCTV covers the main gate, which is next to the designated smoking area. We are in the process of getting additional CCTV to cover the sheltered area you mentioned in front of the retail unit as we appreciate that you may choose to move there in adverse weather conditions. Until this happens, please feel free to borrow an umbrella from reception.  

Please don't hesitate to contact the accommodation team if you have any further suggestions or questions.

Many thanks,

The Accommodation team.

Dear Resident,

Thank you very much for your feedback - it is greatly appreciated.

We are very happy that you think your accommodation is great. However, it is so important for us that you feel as if New Bridewell is your home away from home as soon as possible. We totally understand that if you discovered your room in a condition you found unsuitable, this may not have been the case straight away. During check in weekend, we have professional cleaning teams on site who are able to come into your room and clean any areas which you decide need extra attention. They work tirelessly to clean and check all rooms ready for check in weekend, but here may sometimes be areas missed, so we have them ready to help when you arrive too.

Please don't hesitate to contact the accommodation team if you have any further suggestions or questions.

Many thanks,

The Accommodation team.

Quiet and conveniently located for university students (the Christmas steps can be quite tiring en route to lectures, but this is outweighed by the nearby Tesco Metro and 2 oriental supermarkets). Friendly and helpful staff (learn how to use the portal to report maintenance issues). Rooms are a comfortable size with storage space underneath the bed. Lockable gate and doors to enter the hall and flats provide a degree of security.

Really a noise accommodation!!! Block C 214 or 216, the room in the opposite of 217, always have party and shout in the corridor in 12 p.m or later! And the yard always have someone talked loudly in the midnight. Besides, there is a bar located in the opposite of the accommodation's gate, which is really noisy.

Please don't hesitate to contact the accommodation team if you are experience this issue again in the future - we will be very glad to help you.

Overall my experience has been quite positive. The rooms are perfect and very spacious but the cleaning of the kitchen is not always at the desired standard. When I first got here, I had to get my shower head changed immediately as the water was constantly boiling and it was nearly impossible to take a shower, making it a very upsetting first couple of days. The stuff are very friendly though and the maintenance worker was very helpful in letting me know how soon I could get a replacement and actually fixing the issue.

Nice place to live, the best location of any hall, but minimal social experience due to a lack of social spaces and events. The accommodation feels more like a hotel than halls. If you're not a sociable person, I would recommend New Bridewell to you.

The accommodation office should conduct checks on the kitchens of flats and impose some sort of punishment for tenants who do not keep their area clean. As someone who does keep his area clean, it is extremely frustrating to have to keep telling flatmmates to clean things and keep the place clean and free from odours.

There is mo other accommodation in the city centre, Bristol, that i would recommend. Its one of the best when it comes to value for your money, The staff and management are extremely nice ( Both the veterans who where here before, and the new ones ). If you are a student looking for a great spot the live, or a resident who would like to stay in a place that is connected to the city centre, there is no better place that i would recommend. Its simply just the BEST.

Secuirity is really good, especially Dave. My biggest complaint is the shower drains as they constantly block really easily and are not deep enough to put a hair trap on to combat this. It's also really annoying that we are not provided with mops or hoovers in our flats to do our own cleaning. The clothes washing facilities are really expensive and the timers on them don't work - the staff don't really seem to care when you report this. I also don't like how they don't notify you when parcels arrive for you as not all orders give a specific postage date. They never reminded us when to pay our fees or how much to pay and how to and it was really complicated so I had to call loads of numbers to find out how as reception staff didn't know. Overall I've had a good experience but I'm pointing out the negatives in the hope they will change them.

Dear resident,

Thank you very much for your feedback - it is greatly appreciated.

We are glad that you are happy with our 24/7 security service; we will make sure to let Dave know that his great efforts are appreciated.

Regarding your remarks, we have plungers available 24/7 at reception if you experience problems with your drain, along with hoovers. Please don't hesitate to contact the accommodation team and we will be glad to help you with any requests of this kind.

For the parcels, there is a QR code that you can use 24/7 to see if your parcel has arrived - you received the link for the QR code at the beginning of the academic year and it is also available in the noticeboards at reception, along with the ones in Blocks A, B and C.

At New Bridewell, we are not part of University of Bristol and, although we are always trying our best to help you, we are not managing anything in terms of payments - we don't have access to any University systems or financial department. Consequently, we always refer you to your University services.

Once again, thank you very much for your feedback and remarks that allowed us to answer to questions that many residents also have.

Please don't hesitate to contact the accommodation team if you have any questions or suggestions.

Many thanks,

the Accommodation team.

The laundry is very expensive, and the social space is lacking. It is too small and there are very few events held. Even the few events held are not satisfactory: for example, they promised us a pizza night but ordered only 4 pizzas. The wifi, however, is good, and so is the quality of the flats.

Dear Resident,

Thank you very much for your feedback – it is greatly appreciated.

We would like to thank you very much for your recommendations. Moving further into the academic year we have implemented more social events, with pizza, as this was clearly a very popular aspect of an event on site. For example, through working in partnership with Dominoes, we have been able to provide a lot more pizzas for the turnout at our most recent Games Night with Pizza. Make sure to check out our ‘What’s on’ guides displayed around the building and on social media to see what else we have in store for you.  We are happy that you are pleased with the quality of your living space, and our wifi provider. The laundry prices do reflect prices across most student accommodations, which is decided from the provider. Here is a link to their website for you to have a look at:

Please do not hesitate to contact the accommodation team if you have any further suggestions or questions.
