Very Handy location. Bonus of being a bit quieter too not being on a Main Street. A building that has been re-modelled. Rooms good, all different sizes. Nice & clean. As we stayed with our 3 children aged between 11-18, we had 3 rooms & a bathroom. Different feel to staying in apartment. Beds are firm & maybe the option... More

Great location for me, could have done with a thicker duvet which would have saved on using the heater! Good exercise climbing the stairs and excellent coffee and breakfast in the morning! Love the extra large towels!

Poor value , insufficient bedding and cheap bed, cell-like room with insufficient acoustic room insulation, no gluten free option for breakfast apart from stale corn flakes and curdled milk, we would not stay here again even if the room rate was halved ..

Modern Industrial styled room. Great space and decor. Very comfortable seating in lounge area. Loved the Industrial room divider, ample storage for luggage and clothing. The host played the Faulty Towers card very well - very funny, warm and engaging. I loved my stay and will return.
