    I stayed here about four years ago and WOW have the new owners put in some true effort to make this place a lovely stay now! Sara at the desk was kind, patient and helpful (even when I dashed in asking about a nearby siren going off. Turns out it was for the volunteer fire dept.) Anyway, they're still in the process of updating some bathrooms and small bits n bobs but I think this place is a nice price and in a great spot, just tucked up behind the main road.

    Easy 5 min walk to centre, nice little kitchen and lounge area, rooms warm and comfortable with lots of storage which is unusual and appreciated! Downsides were limited WiFi per day - modern smartphones burn through it even unintentionally! My dorm opened onto the garden and most people didn’t lock the door so not great security (although there are small valuables lockers). Staff mostly lovely, although found one member a bit patronising. Otherwise a comfortable stay and it’s well looked after.
