    Loved this place and would definitely stay again. The staff was great and full of suggestions and the location was right by everything you needed without being in too noisy a place. It was off the beaten path so it was secure and the security in the rooms was appreciated. 10/10

    In a private room for two it would have been nice to be able to adjust the temperature. We had too low temp. almost all of the time.

    Did the job. But vibe was weird. Reception should be 24hrs. Sheets had stains on them but at 3am, we did not care enough. Location was good and not too bad cost (3 bed private room). Bathrooms need ventilation as they smell of pee but are mostly clean.

    Paid for private room for 1 night after travelling extensively. The manager seemed pleasant but insisted on giving me a tour straight away - watching me drop my bags off in my room. He express his enjoyment off catching people “break the rules”, felt more like a naughty kid threat than a welcomed adult guest. Room was in common area, in which manager liked to sleep directly outside my door. Very uncomfortable and zero sound proofing. No social environment whatsoever. Wouldn’t stay again.
