Good value for money. We had room with queen and a bunker for three of us. Also had a kitchenette within. Bathroom/Toilet was shared with one other room. Was very tidy, the best pillows n linen. Very centrally located. Would definitely stay again.

We booked an en-suite unit for our 1 night stay. On first glance it appears OK and adequate for the price we paid, we did not expect hotel status, but did expect better than we received. What they fail to tell you is that these rooms are right near the kitchen and since the doors do not seal you have the smell of cooking in your room till quite late with or without the windows open (we tried both). You also have a large beam of light that comes in under the door all night long . The sheets, although appeared to be washed had moldy stains on them, the towels again clean were all falling to bits. They advertise breakfast as part of the stay, what they do not tell you is that rather than have the food available in the kitchen, you must go down the stairs with your plates or bowls to reception and get some then go back to cook/eat it. We chose not to use this service. We have stayed in this type of accommodation elsewhere for similar prices and the difference is huge. We would not be going back or recommending it to others.
