Close to the City Centre but the room was basic...

Pros: The hotel's proximity was good.
Cons: The bed and bedding was poor.
Location: Handy to a supermarket and close enough we were able to walk into the city.
Our stay was pleasant and it was convenient having the use of washing machines and a kitchen however we did find the rooms to be very basic.

Student Accomodation

Pros: Location, price.
Cons: Cleanliness. Post kitchen cleanup rules.
Staff were very helpful. Location is great. But to be clear this is STUDENT accommodation. No soap, no shampoo. Superficially it had been cleaned, but the drains were clogged with thick black hair, the kitchen was shared, but nobody else was willing to clean up after themselves. The kitchen bin seemed to never get changed. We only stayed 4 nights, that was enough. But for the PRICE, I think maybe I shouldn't complain too much, just buyer beware it is student accommodation.
