    My friends and I stayed for a long weekend and it was great! The facilities are amazing, clean, and well-stocked. We were running late because of traffic and would have missed the check-in time but that was no problem, staff were very understanding and accommodating. Overall amazing stay and would definitely stay again and recommend!

    Lovely place to stay. Was a bit pricey but worth it for a clean bed, lovely facilities. Location is perfect - you can walk from the station and into town to get a bus to view all the lovely sights. The town is awesome, definitely recommend this place to anyone who needs a nice relaxing place to stay with beautiful hikes available.

    I often stay here on the way from Cornwall to Scotland, just for one night. Always A1, quiet, usually manage to get dorm by myself. Can leave early without disturbing others. Absolutely ideal for my situation. Thank you Wayfarers. Very near the M6.
