Ridiculously strict with having the kitchen windows closed even when it was just me and one other flat mate in the kitchen talking. Also the area is very rough multiple times I've seen drunk people walking around in the middle of the day and once got threatened by an older man on the walk back from uni. Other than that the staff are all lovely and always make an effort to talk to us and with it being a small halls it's very easy to get to know everybody
Value for Money - The kitchen facilities are not great, the rooms are nice but basic, the bathrooms are very good. Location - Up 2 big hills and also not the nicest areas either Hall Management - Had no hot water for over 4 days, reported it everyday and nothing was done. Report a broken hob on the oven and that still hasn't been fixed. Cleaning - even though the cleaners are quite noisy, they do a very good job and are very polite Common Room - decent size, good facilities, its a shame that more people do not use it Social Experience - like any halls, very sociable, it allows you to meet some great people
The halls could do with a bit of a makeover, expecially the kitchen. Ive seen a number of silverfish in the bathroom, bedroom (including my bed), and the kitchen. Told management about it and they say we just need to clean, which we constantly do. This has been a problem since October and nothing will be done as management says silverfish are not harmful.weve found them in our kitchen cupboards which id a hygiene problem. Halls are nicelu set out, 180 odd people, nice little community. Friendly atmosphere. No far from city, but the hill to the halls is steep. Pay 113 a week, which we feel is too much for the halls. Wed feeln 90/100 should be the maximum
Blenheim is situated about a mile up a hill from the city centre, definitely set apart from the uni. The kitchens are very basic (school chairs and desk are basically the kitchen table), and the security guard are your constant help if you need assistance but they don't do too much. Maintenance wise - any issue will be dealt with literally the next morning and it's always fixed! But don't expect any luxury.
