  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness

Negatives: The bathroom was very dirty. There was beard hair in the sink for days and the water wouldn't drain away. Also tissue all over the floor. There is no lift access to the top floors. Positives: cheap price. Free cereal or toast for breakfast. Friendly staff.
