Booked it last minute so wasn't sure what to expect but it was SO much better than we thought it would be. Low price so was expecting to get what we paid for but the staff (from the owner to the cleaner) & state of the room were both 10/10. 5 minute taxi to the Newcastle nightlife as well as the pub itself having low prices drinks. We were even lucky enough to win some free drinks in the raffle! Going back up in July and didn't think twice about booking this place again. Highly recommended.
From Luton (even though we were called London the whole weekend!)
