    Perfect location, great staff, good facilities. Felt safe, clean and welcoming. Showers and bathrooms were pleasant. Decor was meh but the building was very grand. Mattresses were a bit springy but I still slept fine. Communal spaces could do with a refresh, but they were still comfortable enough. Free toast, tea and coffee. We had a great stay and the price was very affordable. Thanks!

    Beds and pillows incredibly uncomfortable. Also beds creak when people even make the slightest movement. If I had other options I would not choose to stay here.
