Great experience in Muirhead halls. Flats hold 5 people and there are 2 shower rooms so plenty of space. Rooms are very tiny though so not much room to move around. Kitchen was great but the freezer was too small. There aren't enough shelves for each person to have one. No porters are an added bonus!
It was all about the people - they were just brilliant and a joy to live with. Having been in all the halls, Muirhead is definitely the best value for money in my opinion and is the way to go. Don't break the bank and do Beech or Willow, it's a waste and frankly it feels like you're living in a hotel, not a student flat. If you're bothered about sharing a bathroom go for ASH, but honestly, you'll realise sharing is not a big deal. You won't regret going for Muirhead.
Having been in all of the halls, as a student going into second year I would definitely recommend to new students to go for Muirhead. Willow and Beech are too expensive as SAAS does not cover the full cost per month, so you'd either need to get a job or ask your parents to help you out every month (just to pay the rent, never mind everything else they will probably help you with). Also, it feels almost like you're living in a hotel and aren't getting, in my opinion, the proper first-year student experience - those who tend to live there are more likely to stay in their rooms a lot more due to the en-suites etc and I just don't feel it's worth it at all. Those of you who can't bare the thought of sharing a bathroom might prefer Andrew Stewart Hall (ASH) which is pretty good although more expensive just for the bonus of having your own bathroom and a porter - personally
absolutely fabulous year. Best company, nice flat sizes, brilliant value for money compared to the other accommodation on offer. Reasonably basic flats but could not recommend more, had the best year, met the best people and would 100% tell anybody muirhead is the way to go.
