Our close family group of eleven ranged in age from four to eighty four. We were impressed with the suitability of the rooms allocated to us, the washing, showering and toilet facilities, and the self-cooking kitchen and common rooms. The hostel food was excellently prepared, well presented with over generous portions. There was a good and secure storage building for... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at this YHA where we supported a group of young people with learning disabilities. Good standard accommodation, clean and comfortable. We had breakfast and our evening meals at the hostel (good choice/good-size portions) and took the packed lunches (cheese/ham/jam sandwiches, crisps, cereal bar, fruit and a bottle of water). Staff friendly,flexible, patient and... More

Stayed Wed/Thursday we had 2x en-suite rooms. The place is not that old and purpose built I would think. Not knowing what to expect (I was a member in 1962) we were pleasantly surprised and used it as a base to visit the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre only a few minutes walk away & past a small play park.

I travelled here last week with a school party. The hostel is in a great location especially for 30+ very excitable children. The staff were brilliant letting us check in early and the rooms were great. The food was great and the kitchen staff were very accommodating to our needs.
