          Easy to find, staff was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. Loved the friendliness of the front desk staff. The rooms are unfortunately quite small, having 4 people in one room and attempting to get ready with the lockers open is actually impossible.More

          Centrally located, many bars & pubs & restaurants within easy reach, friendly staff and all in all a very good place to stay! Nothing to complain about, nice and cosy "living room", the breakfast was sufficient and the atmosphere fine.
