3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Liked: 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!
