The virtual tour doesn't give any indication of the halls. The rooms are pretty much all standard, depending on where in the building they are changes what size the room is but they're all very small (as uni rooms normally are) but you really don't get any concept of how SMALL they are until you go in one in person. I made a list of the halls I'd prefer to stay in before I visited them by going through them on the virtual tour site.

i have had a look at the room on the virtual tour and Bateson seems ok it doesn't look manky at all.
Completely changed my list once I'd seen the halls in person. Now I don't want to stay in halls at all, going to go private :P
I'd be scared staying in Bateson, it looks like a prison from the outside. But hey that's half the fun! :] It's directly opposite Harry Law too, which is also pretty dim and grungy, inside and out. They're right next to the uni though, were as Rees and Burrel and Langstone are a bit further out. You could probably get out of bed at 8:50 and be in the lecture for 9:00 :]
Probably have a good community in them too. I wouldn't worry, it's only the first year, you'll probably never be in the halls anyway
