Small but very clean and comfortable rooms, this is budget so don’t expect large. Reception staff were all extremely pleasant and accommodating, the breakfast room is basic but you can get something to eat before heading out for the day. Well located with access to public transport, it was perfect for our overnight stay for a concert!
