2016This is an amazing room. It's definitely worth more than a grade 2, which I reckon was only given because it doesn't have a sink.

It has a marble fireplace, which is a great mantlepiece for pictures/ alcohol etc. Lots of storage - huge shelves, big chest of drawers, big closet.

It's really big for a grade 2, there's enough space for me to fit 2 chairs and a coffee table in front of the fireplace. It's also right next to the kitchen, laundry, 2 toilets, and 2 showers (shared amongst 3-5 people, so you never ever have to wait.)

It's quite drafty sometimes because it's facing the road (also a privacy issue sometimes), but this also means there are huge bay windows which are nice when its sunny. Also just got the heating fixed, so its really warm in the winter!
2010Really nice room. All the comments above are accurate; the only thing I'd add is that I've moved the desk so it's now by the fireplace and not in full view of the road!

Pros of this room: cheap, pretty big, nicely decorated, lots of storage, on nice side of the house, next to all the showers and laundry facilities.

Cons: right next to housekeeper (although this isn't actually a problem, she's lovely as long as you're nice to her!), road is a bit loud and distracting, although only at 'peak' times of the day. Net curtains (new!) help a lot.
2008This is a really nice room, quite a good size and very light. There is a large kitchen nearby and you are close to bathrooms and showers. There is lots of storage space. Only bad thing is the noise from rubbish collection on Tuesday morning.
2006This room has been newly painted and carpeted (both green) this year and feels very fresh. As the previous person said it has plenty of storage space and the size is fine - it's not big but it's certainly not poky. My only concern is that my laptop sits on my desk in full view of passers-by! It's a nice room other than that though.
