The rooms are big and everyone is friendly. Also, the wardens get involved in events. It is also convenient to contact the wardens when they are needed.

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.

Great room size and bathroom facilities. Kitchen space is great with a table and sofa. The wifi isn't great and needs updating.

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.

Good location for Holywell, Engineering and library but would have to say that the social side felt a bit like a "committee-fest" at times

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.
