2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Stayed 7 nights in Mar 2020

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Great for short stays
Lovely staff from check-in to security to passing cleaners in the hall. All so lovely. Room and shared bathrooms where clean and I had no issues being disrupted by other guests. I did have the issue of VERY loud banging pipes which I was aware of thanks to other reviews so was prepared for but couldnt have handled more than the single night I stayed. I would stay here again as single nights but not longer as its hard to get quality sleep.

A great property. Security is excellent, gym facilities extremely useful for someone who needs to maintain their gym schedule. Beds are a bit stiff for my taste, but beside that, a great hotel with a bit of a hostel feel
