Very nice location in a quiet residential area with Clifton village 5 minutes walk away with lots of cute cafes and 15 minutes walk from the main university campus. There is a library, music room and common rooms. The gardens are lovely during the spring and summer times.

Was in the best location as it is in a quiet area with shops and only a 10 minute walk from the university. The hall itself was brilliant with huge grounds and a really nice community feel.

If you are looking for halls that will be a hive of social activity then goldney is perfect. It is self catered with large kitchens and realllly nice rooms (but im bias because im in the new A block). The flats each house 8 people but you basically feel like youre living with the whole block (4 flats in each). There's always stuff going on in a least one flat (in our block anyways) and on the rare rare rare occasion there isn't you're litterally 5 min walk away from the triangle. The triangle (where wills building is) has loads of fab clubs (omg and Lola los being personal faves), cafes and take out food places and other useful shops like sainsburys and raymands etc. On the other hand you could go in the opposite direction into Clifton where there a loads of really nice (way out of student budget) cafes who's windows you can look into but never go in (until your parents come and you casually suggest a coffee and cake). Also in Clifton is the saving grace that is tesco express that is there for you daily until 11pm with alcohol and frozen pizza. So basically what more could you want from halls? Goldney is where its all at.

Goldney is truly a unique halls of residence for first year! The grounds you have access to are really lovely especially in summer, and lots of balls and formals are organised too, in an amazing setting. The one downside is it's 50:50 whether you get a modernised kitchen/flat or not. Although I was unlucky and got a room on the ground floor which could be quite dark, there are other flats which are modern and have quite nice kitchens. Overall I would definitely recommend Goldney!

Goldney hall is in a good location, a 20 minute walk from the university and right next to Clifton village. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are a good size. The facilities are good; there is a library, comment room with a TV, bar, games room and tennis courts. There are events held regularly in the bar including live music, talent shows, quizzes, bingo and movie nights.

Amazing halls, great atmosphere and community and beautiful gardens. Great support network and revision facilities. In Clifton which is close to city center, shops and the Clifton suspension bridge.

Goldney was such a great place to be, not only were the surroundings like something out of a period drama but it had such a great social life. The JCR really worked hard, and by the end of the year everyone in halls knew each other well. Plus we had the Goldney cat ;)

Really nice halls to live in and be a part of! And really fancy, although a bit pricey once you get settled into to finances etc it becomes well worth it
