3/5 Okay

Traveled with group
Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
The room is so small you can’t put a small suitcase on the floor and there’s nowhere to lock a suitcase away given the lack of room for one in the rooms, there’s kitchen equipment and washing up liquids etc but no drying rack, tea towel or a sink plug. The rooms were very cold and we had to leave a heater on full for 24 hours to get the room warm to come in too. Other than that it’s very functional comfy bed, and pillows, bright lights and a good sized fridge and microwave. It’s 15 mins from the city centre but very reasonable for the price!

Broken power outlet had to put microwave and kettle on floor. Simple things missing that would have made this number 1 for value IF they had been there. Staff interaction was very poor.

Nice hotel, close to the town centre
It a good hotel but they need to improve on their services and empty the bins regularly as they were very fool. I enjoyed the fact that the hotel is near the town centre.

5/5 Excellent

Great private room, sharing a bathroom with many
Great place to stay, i love the idea of sharing bathrooms, kitchen and lounge, but still having your own private bedrooms. However keep in mind, when sharing a bathrooms, you could potentially be sharing it with more than 10 people, so the line to the bathroom can be quite long of a morning.
