Really good for engineering but a little walk from town and union. The walk is max 10 mins and you don’t really notice the distance. Good size rooms kitchens and en-suites. Good cleaners 2 times a week and a nice big common room and laundry room.
I love Bakewell! I am so lucky that I had the best freshers and second year experience here, with both my flats being 10/10! It’s so close to everything you would need on campus and is always lively on nights out! The committee put on amazing events all year round and make it worth the money!
Excellent. Whilst it is looking slightly tired in areas (2021), Robert Bakewell provided me with two years of enjoyable experiences. Social life is excellent with hall committees organising regular events from welfare weeks to punch parties, summer and winter balls and huge carnival like days called hall days. Lots of tradition, lots of fun and with an excellent sub warden support network.
Overall, Robert Bakewell Halls are very good. Cleaners are very friendly, rooms are sufficient and the on suite is good. Theres a reason why its rated so highly. However, the walls are very thin and the beds are terrible. Expect to be awakened by beds squeaking from people shagging and students screaming after a night out. Overall, very good.
Robert Bakewell is the best hall on campus! 3/5 stars for location as in first year it is great to be on campus but when you affiliate (live out of halls) in second year its a bit of a drag from town to it, but social life is great, modern spacious rooms and kitchens!

Although it is a more expensive hall, I think it is value for money because you receive a double bed, en suite and you're self-catered, which were all desirable for me. The room is spacious and the kitchen areas are nice and big (although they are lime green..). Good hall culture, I was really able to get involved in freshers fully every night through Bakewell as it is led well by a student committee. Pretty decent location, in the village with lots of other halls, 2 mins walk from the Library and 5 mins walk from Holywell Gym, a takeaway and shop also nearby. The only thing that is on the other side of campus is the Union, but you walk in groups so its no hassle and is really not that far. All in all, a good experience.
Avoid plenty better halls in hindsight

The start of an incredible journey, somewhere that made everyone feel involved, made some true friends for life, through some incredible events and memories. Will always be the best hall on campus , we’re bakewell till we die!
Hall is located in a fantastic part of the student village, being an approximately 5-10 minute walk from both the Holywell Gym and LSU. Hall Committee ensure that all students get a great experience whilst in Bakewell.
I've had a great experience living in Robert Bakewell. Both kitchen and rooms are in great condition and really spacious. Really close to the purple onion and to the library for last minute deadlines. Also really close to engineering department which has been great for me. It is further to the union but that hasn't been a problem. The social side has been really good too, lot's of stuff to get involved in and regular events.
Internet is a shocker but that's a campus wide issue. Got the nicest cleaner in the world, friendly maintenance guys & very helpful/approachable hall management team. Common room has table tennis/pool/tv/xbox/darts. Probably the best common room in the Uni. Plus we have the best socials.
Felt uncomfortable in this hall, with nobody there to help. Last year I stayed there and the committee did nothing to accommodate the freshers and just cared about themselves. Had the worst year of my life there.
Met some amazing people during fresher's events with the hall. Bakewell is very friendly and gets you involved with various activities. Rooms are a great size and the en-suite is a lovely bonus. Kitchen's are also spacious with room for are few people cooking at once without getting in each other's way too much. Overall Bakewell is a great hall. The price tag is a little painful but it's certainly worth it for what you get.
Great experience have loved the facilities especially the double bed and the en-suite. Everyone is part of the Bakewell family and makes you feel at home with great punch parties where everyone in Bakewell comes together.
Lived in Bakewell since September as an Engineering Student. Location is perfect as it's next to both the library and the Engineering building. Social life is also amazing due to the committee efforts but this is the same as with most halls in Loughborough. Cleaners and maintenance guys a cracking, always polite and easy to talk to, never rude. More expensive than other halls, but with maintenance loans covering most of the rent bill anyway, it won't make a difference to your bank balance. You'll be poor wherever you live.
Fantaistic hall with great facilities and friendly staff. The Hall is well positioned on campus, very close to the library. At the heart of the student village it is alway livily with something going on. The hall is very friendly with people always about to talk to and hang out with. The hall also is one of the best in Loughborough winning many awards and doing extremely well in others. The committee are all fun loving and approachable as well is the Warden and Warden Team.
En suite is the best part of this hall, but is that really a priority when at uni? Kitchens are comparable to the ones of many other self-catered halls. Socially can be quite good if you get the right people in your flat, but doesn't have that 'hall community' feel that others do (eg. Falk Egg, Telford). Good hall overall, but I don't find its worth the extra money payed.
