Place is a bit old and could do with a refurbishment, main bed was squeaky, second single was a trundle bed. A bit disappointing but cheaper than other accommodation around

It was chosen as a budget option, but I was still disappointed with the experience. Leaking taps, really poor wifi (if it worked at all) after choosing this accommodation for free wifi - staff were difficult to contact to get help
