I had a 24 hour layover, and very little money. Took the train to a station nearby and walked to this spot. The staff was helpful, there was food on site, but also an Aldi within walking distance. It was a bit of a pain that the lockers had to be paid repeatedly if you wanted to get to your... More

The 'Guest house' is unprofessionally run by one person. On arrival, we couldn't get into the place as there is no reception. After ringing the bell for some time, we called the number on our reservation print-out. After some time, we managed to get the code to enter the Guest House. This brings up the first secureity concern of many.... More

Upon arrival on Friday afternoon we found at the address a terraced house with no sign above the door to tell us we... More
