Landlord rating
Very poor. Exceptionally so. He was rude, standoffish, and entitled.
He often failed to give proper notice or would tell us he was coming over, then simply let himself in instead of ringing the bell. He randomly imposed rules (no overnight guests, no large potted plants) that had nothing to do with the tenancy agreement (these rules were often enforced when he was bothered and I suspect were a way to get his anger out). He saw a mark on the carpet and said we needed to clean it, we agreed that it would be deep-cleaned when we left the flat at the end of our tenancy. Three days later he came for an unrelated reason and shouted that we hadn't cleaned it yet. We said we had exams and hadn't had time yet, and he said that didn't matter because he "said so".
There was an insurance document with rules to follow. We were not allowed to see it, even though when we signed the tenancy agreement it said we had agreed to it. This document was brought up multiple times by the landlord and his father to control our actions though we were never allowed to read it ourselves "why would you need to see it?" - because we are meant to be following it!
When they came over they would park illegally on the road. When we realised they were not good landlords we asked third parties to be present when they were over. This led to their insistence that we were subletting (we were not.) and the third parties were consistently sent out of the flat to check on the illegally parked vehicles so as to not be present when we were talking.
There was an unenforceable clause in the contract saying that if they could not get a new student tenant group by a certain date then it was our fault and we would be fined. They got new tenants so late because the flat was poor quality and too expensive, so it was a last resort.
Bristol has a surplus of students so it is shameful that management like this is still profitable there.
Living here and interacting with the landlord was a genuine detriment to my mental health.

Property rating
3 bedroom flat with a 'garden' (a tiny pit into which neighbours threw their rubbish).
The flat had no number, it was just 'flat'. Combined with the fact that it was tucked into the side basement of the property and wasn't listed as a residency on the land registry I strongly suspect that there was something fishy going on legally.
(speculation) multiple people commented that in the event of a fire it would be very difficult to escape. There were issues with bins not being collected (and not enough bins for the number of flats). The flat was not an address option on many delivery services. These compound my suspicion that there was something wrong.

Clifton is a lovely area, but it's a shame that is used to justify such high rent for sub-par properties
