The BSR has 20 study bedrooms (some en-suite) in a mix of singles and twins. Please note en-suite study-bedrooms cannot be guaranteed.


Dinner is where our residents and their guests come together to share thoughts and experiences as well as pasta and coffee. Meals are served as a fixed menu at set times – lunch at 1.00 p.m. and dinner at 8.00 p.m. We try to cater for dietary preferences but these cannot always be accommodated. If you have particular dietary requirements please contact us to discuss this before making a booking.

Residents are welcome to attend meals not included in their room rate or to bring (pre-booked) guests — meals will be charged to the resident at the following rates:

  • lunch:    EUR 15
  • packed lunch:   EUR 5
  • dinner:    EUR 20
  • formal dinner:  EUR 25

At weekends there is no dinner service on Saturday and no served lunch on either day (a packed lunch is available on Saturday). A self-service breakfast is provided on both days in the residents’ kitchen.
