Great bargain!
For the price of about £10 a night, my 5 days went very well. Not too loud, bathroom in room and plug sockets at my bed. Will stay again and have recommended to friends.

Poor 2.0
not very helpful - avoid
I cancelled with plenty of notice and was refused option to move dates or refund my costs. Not very helpful or understanding. I had a sick relative that could not attend so we wanted to move dates. Awful customer service
