Hi there @shirinaroraa , I totally understand how u feel, choosing accommodation can be nerve racking. The main difference between Middle Mill and Seething Wells is the ensuite toilets and distance from Uni. Seething Wells is quite popular due to the newly refurbished facilities (eg. common room, kitchen and bedrooms) and ensuite toilets, just note that is is a 25min walk away from campus but it is an easy commute via free KU bus services. I have stayed in the budget ensuite at Seething wells and think that the room size is more than adequate for a single person.
Middle Mill has shared toilets and showers but is only a 3 to 5min walk from Kingston's Knights Park and Penrhyn Rd Campus, I would say that rooms are slightly longer with sinks within each room and would recommend looking at the attic flats at Middle Mill as they tend to be bigger and shared with less people due to the configuration of the building. In addition to reference images of the rooms, you should also check the floor plan of each room through the Uni's Accommodation portal when booking, that was how I decided on my room(at Clayhill) as some rooms are slightly bigger than others due to the configuration of flats!

Here are some useful links to help you visualise how each Halls of Residence looks like 🙂
