    Had an amazing stay at base, the staff were very helpful, especially mike who went out of his way to answer any questions i had about the local activities. The cleaners did a spectacular job at keeping the place clean. Top marks

    Great location and friendly helpful staff. Have a Small car park which seemed fine. My key card stopped working a few times but I downloaded their app which worked perfectly. Could do with a spruce up in a few areas and the bathrooms weren’t always the best but great for a few days and would definitely stay again

    Very Good

    I found the cards did not work properly to get into the room. I had to get my card reloaded on the computer twice inside two days to work. It was very frustrating. One time I was locked out as the security to get in was broken and had not been fixed. Rooms were always clean and the people were always friendly. Anyone who has family stuck in hospital it located opposite the hospital and very close to all the shops.

    It's okay for what it is. I stayed in this same building 20 years ago, and it's not as good as I remember. You must check in before office hours close at 5pm which otherwise incurs a callout fee. Staff member seemed grumpy, despite my polite and friendly demeanor. Place needs an overhaul. Likely long overdue. Facilities like the kitchen was adequate. Should be a last ditch option to be honest.

    Room itself was good/clean. Ruined by being next to a pub that operates all hours. Need to spend some money on the carpark - all the potholes may cause punctures or wreck your suspension. Kitchen area needs an upgrade too.

    Very friendly staff. The room is too stuff at nighty but you dont want to open the balcony door for at least some air because the of the music at the bar downstairs. Other rooms maybe conducive for resting but not ours unfortunately. Location of the hostel is quite good for sightseeing

    Just felt pretty dirty and kind of dodgy, the swimming pool was the reason I booked and it was lovely to be in the pool so late, otherwise I wouldn’t really recommend it if you don’t want to use the pool
