Bed was comfortable, but the room was stuffy, window did not open completely. Doors make lot of noise, so you hear the neighbours as well, some slamm the doors really loud.
In case you have a big backbag or luggage, the only way from the rail statio...

The staff were very helpful.
The other guests we met there were mostly friendly.
It was a little disappointing that a small minority of the guests did not clean the kitchen utensils, benches etc after using them, to a reasonable standard.
David B. (November 2014)
Nice-ish place to stay, but obviously getting a bit tired, and certainly no view for the extra that we paid for.
All in all not bad, but not fantastic!
Ben P. (November 2014)
