Excellent value for money. I paid a little extra to get a room to myself; if I'd taken a shared room it would have been even more outstanding value for money. I had a car; parking was on-street, but easy to find {although the whole of the location was very quiet}.

A towel should be provided for dorm stayers, not very good at informing where all areas are and what facilities the place offers. Didn't know where I could smoke as well as where I could do laundry or make a tea. No one was around at the time I needed to know these.
