20162015 - This is a great room (rumour has it the 4 attic rooms are the best grade 1s in college...) It is quite cosy with the sloping ceilings. This one looks over the road which is nice to people watch from, and noise has never been a problem for me.

Pros - Characterful and well sized room for the money, is a full length mirror just outside, can be nice if you can get a group of 3 other friends in the other attic rooms.

Cons - Can be a little isolating at times - not like Old South where people wonder into your room. The lighting is pretty terrible, bring as many lamps as you can. There isn't very much storage room. There's no running water on the floor - but you are paying for a Grade 1.
2014Really lovely room! It's not particularly small (especially considering it's a grade 1!) and the sloping ceiling isn't too much of an issue. Could possibly be a problem for tall people, I'm 5 foot 7 and it's been fine for me, but if you're taller than that might be worth checking it out for yourself. It looks out onto the street, which means that sometimes it's a bit loud at night but as it's a residential area it's not too bad. Also Blantyre itself is a great place to live so definitely consider it!
2013Nice and cosy, has lots of character with sloping attic walls. Hasn't been a problem for me but the attic probably isn't ideal for tall people. Really good size for a grade 1, loads of storage space. View onto the street, good for people-watching procrastination. No running water on this floor, but big kitchen and bathrooms on the floor below so it's not an issue. I love this room!
2008Really lovely 'interestingly' shaped room!

Bit annoying not having a bathroom/water source on the same floor but there is a full length mirror-hurrar!!
2006Fairly small room with sloping ceilings, but I really like it. Only problem is having to go down a floor to use bathrooms, get drinks etc. Blantyre's a really good place: clean, nice bathrooms and kitchens
