Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Photos on the web site are of a modern building not the dump we were in. For the price I would at least expect basic necessities like towels but nothing provided. Not even a wardrobe to hang clothes. This is for those who really prefer to rough it.

Massive problem when we arrived the team had cancelled our booking as someone else with a similar name had previously checked in so they assumed it was a double up.. so we had to be put in a temporary room and moved early part way through the stay, ruined the holiday, not really apologetic about it. Charged to store luggage, kitchen facilities in the flat very poor and under equipped, when asking the staff for an additional pan (only 1 in the whole flat) told there was nothing they could do. A fire alarm went off at 4am (not the staffs fault) however NO direction given at all just left standing outside not knowing what was happening. A shambles of a stay the staff seemed more keen on chatting to each other and enjoying the festival than helping

Basic accommodation
Overall it was an okay stay but feel the price for what we got was ridiculous. The walls are really thin and felt like I couldn’t speak to my friend without possibly disturbing others. The room looked like it hadn’t been hoovered found a bobble and kerbie grip on the floor, there was a bag in the drawers and a spray in the cupboard that looked like it had been there for ages! The bathroom and kitchen was very clean tho. I found the beds quite hard but did manage to sleep no bother my friend is slightly bigger than me and found it uncomfortable and the bed made a noise every time she moved. Only spoke to staff on arrival and checking out but they were really friendly and nice.
