2014Blantyre 16 is a nice, small and cozy room. It has fantastic lighting and receives a lot of sunshine during the day. It had a fantastic large wardrobe for a grade 1/2,a sink with sizable cupboard underneath, clean carpets and lots of shelf space. It also has double glazed windows which keep outside noise out and inside heat in.

The negatives are that there is a shower underneath and with the sun shining in, the room is always warm. I have never had to turn the heating on, even in midwinter. Also a some sound can be heard from two rooms next door, but only if its extremely loud. Normal conversations can't really be heard!
2009This is a cute room if you don't need much space (it's worth considering that with a common room downstairs anyway, you don't have to spend all your time in your own room). The fact that there's only one shower on this side of the house is not a problem, you don't have to go outside to get to the other side of the house and there are several showers there- it's a twenty second walk! Can get a bit hot when the sun shines full in the windows. The main issue is the soundproofing- there is absolutely none, especially between 16 and 17.... think carefully about whether this might bother you...
2008Like all Blantyre rooms, carpeted and repainted last summer. Very Small, but a nice room plus has a sink with storage underneath. Double glazed window, unlike most other rooms, and gets the sun in during the afternoon.

Very good for a grade 2, the only bad point being the small size
2006Small but cosy. Double-glazed window - big plus. Sink. Only one shower on this side of the house. Recently painted and carpeted. Decent sized wardrobe with shelves in. No chest of drawers. Nice and bright (when sunny). Can hear loud conversations through the wall but noise generally is not a problem. V tasteful curtains (considering college norms)
