So good with large kitchens that make it so easy to socialize. The location is near to the library and in the middle of lectures and Holywell which is very useful. Being in the student village makes seeing friends really easy also.

Student Review: 4.1 /5
By member13111716 On 22nd June 24 verified Verified student

Great place to stay however the common room was more just a glorified storage room that was never really used to its full potential and expensive hall subs should have been used in more events that made it better value for money. A Great kitchen and more social flats utilised the space well but my flat was rather unsocial so it was underutilised.

Has been overall a really fun year in the hall. Loved all the amenities and the space I have in my room, however did think the common room could’ve been improved when compared to similar halls like Rigg Rutt

Accommodation was perfect for my first year, nice spacious rooms with wet rooms that gave me everything I needed. Kitchen was large but wasn't provided with enough chairs to house the amount of people in the flat. Cooking space worked but at times was a little crowded. Cleaning was included with the cost and when done was very good, but at times they didn't clean when they had cleaned in dirtier conditions which was confusing. They did help with any problems that we did have and when anything was broke it was quickly fixed

While my experience was overall good, I don't think it was worth around £8,000, especially since it's non-catered. The location is one of the best for an Engineering student and anyone who likes to use the library. My room didn't require any maintenance as everything worked as it should and when it didn't, it was usually fixed within a day or 2. I do think the flats should have a deeper clean between leases as the kitchen always smells funky and it's sink drain always smelt like morning breath. The kitchen and room cleaning was incredibly convenient. I'm not sure the kitchen would've looked like if it was up to students. Social spaces are standard. There's nothing wrong with them but nothing better than the standard. The hall wardens are GOATed and have multiple gatherings each month. The Internet is great when it works but often requires you to disconnect then reconnect OR recalibrate your device entirely. The phone wifi is so bad that I just use mobile data.

They're good at maintenance (e.g. fixing heating/ a light bulb) same day. Good student atmosphere and lovely housekeeping staff! Close to the library, spar shop and lecture hall so quite convenient. One thing I'd say is that the heating should be better - you can't control when it's on and it gets cold frequently.

I think Bakewell is good value for money as the kitchens have great facilities and are very modern and big which allows for good social spaces. However, I would recommend bakewell more for those on the west side of campus doing science based subjects as it’s a bit of a walk from the east side. I would also say it’s not the most social hall on campus but the rooms make up for this.

It was a very pleasant experience, room is relatively spacious and the fact that everyone has an ensuite really elevated the experience of it all. The kitchen is quite nice and spacious, and the location is especially great if you're studying architecture/engineering/physics because its a mere 5 minutes walk away.

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.

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.

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.
