2016Although I had my reservations before moving in, I have grown to love this room and Blantyre House in general. As mentioned before, really good value for a Grade 2, lots and lots of light, two wardrobes, 3 chairs and a big coffee table. Near enough to the common room to be sociable, but not so near that it's a nuisance. The walls ARE really thin (I have been woken up by my neighbour's alarm before) but this hasn't really been an issue for me. Don't buy in to all the Blantyre hate - I would definitely recommend this room!
2015Good size, larger than most of the grade 2s in Blantyre. As mentioned, two decent sized windows provide plenty of light. Never had any problems with noise, though the walls are quite thin so would depend somewhat on your neighbour. Plenty of storage space with two wardrobes, two overhead cupboards, and a cupboard under the sink. I haven't had any of the problems with the sink the person below mentions so this has probably been sorted; water is fine for drinking and temperature is fine if you let them run for a minute.
2010Good sized (much bigger than the Garde 3 next door) pleasant blue painted room with windows on two walls (so v bright). Far enough from common room to get peace when you don't fancy being kept awake. Basin is handy for brushing teeth/make up/shaving(??), but other than that a bit useless - water doesn't taste drinkable and hot and cold taps both run luke warm. Got back after Christmas hols to a FREEZING room since it has three external walls and the roof, which took about a week to warm up. Would recommend Blantyre for the speedy wired internet and great common area (but it's a long way from the boathouse!).
