The hotel is located inside the campus. I stayed there for 5 days during a business trip to the University. Rooms are ok, however, the area is too noisy because of the young kids staying for summer English language courses. I was allocated a room but it has a horrible noises, they moved to another room but the T.V. was not working, when complained, they sent someone to the room to take off the T.V's licence lable and told they can't fixed it. I would recommend people to stay in the city center where attractions and shops are located.

We had 2 x twin bedded rooms and they beds were really uncomfortable and freaked and groaned every time anyone moved in them which kept us awake. The bathroom lights are motion sensitive and you can’t turn them off so when you get up in the night you and you room mate are blinded by the light. It takes ages for the light to go off after you leave the room too. The rooms are super basic, no tea and coffe making except if you like it black you can make a drink in the shared kitchen which was very very smelly. Even though it was Uni Open day, there were hen weekends staying and they were put in the same flat as us (family) and were up and making noise, slamming doors, shrieking, swearing etc all through the night. Normal for hen weekend but not for our family.

Needing budget accommodation for two nights, at £40 per night this suited me well and met my expectations. The "Accommodation Centre" staff gave an excellent welcome. The room was located in the "Woodland Court" block - twin-bedded student accommodation pretty much as described in other reviews. Tea and coffee supplied in communal kitchen. The "Lime Tree" restaurant/bar provided well-priced food. It suited me to leave the car as there is a frequent bus service to the city centre, Senior Bus Pass can be used after 9 a.m. The 'pay and display' car park is free in the evenings but limited to a maximum of six hours during the day. If you intend to leave your car on-site throughout the day the Accommodation Centre staff can provide a free parking permit covering your stay.

I stayed in the new Polden accommodation. The room had a small double bed with lots of storage space. Tea, coffee and small biscuits provided. Free WiFi. The en-suite had a large walk-in shower with a huge shower head. Heated towel rail and large mirrored cupboard. You have to pick up the keycard from the East Accommodation centre (or library when closed) so park in the East carpark to do that then drive to the west car park which is directly across from Polden. Otherwise it is a 10 minute walk. At £49 through Booking.com it is good value for Bath. The uni buses go regularly into the city centre if you don't want to take the car. The room was spotless. No carpet though so bring slippers

We stayed as a large group and if you get 5 rooms or more you can get a floor to yourselves with a shared toilet and bath. The kitchen is shared. There is a good bus service to bath itself or taxis are cheap. This is a budget way to stay in the city. Works for us.
