Liked: It is cheap, there is a parking outside and there is free WIFI. The room was spacious, people were nice.

Disliked: It is cheap so expect cheap. Toilets door did not close, bed was broken in the middle and it is noisy (vehicle in the street and floor cracking in the corridor). But if you are not too demanding, for the price it is good value.

Liked: As far as price goes you get what you pay for. Room is clean and spacious, free wifi is a massive plus

Disliked: You do not realise how much not having your own bathroom matters until you have not got it. It is on the corner if a busy road so room choice matters especially when it is warm out and your window is open

Liked: Good value for money. Its cheap, expect cheap. Kitchen has extremely basic commodities, no oven for example. Rooms are neat and clean but you can hear other people talking in their rooms next door - NOT soundproof whatsoever.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: It was worth the money. Wifi is available in the room and there is a kitchen with all the required appliances to cook. The location is fairly good, 15 minutes walking to the city centre and 5 to the train station.

Disliked: I came here in winter and the heating was off at nights, which was very unconfortable and I had serious problems to sleep.

29 November 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It's a little more expensive but it's nice to have a private room for £20 or so. The staff are nice and helpful, and let me check in at almost midnight. The rooms are simple but clean and warm - the heating works very well. It's about a 30 minute walk from the town centre, and a 15 - 20 minute walk from the train station, so it's not the best if you're travelling alone or late at night. Otherwise it's nice!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The staff was very helpful and even we made a mistake on booking to cost us more money, the staff helped clarifying with his Boss and so eased some of our trouble.

Disliked: It was very difficult to find. The directory written on the confirmation email stated 'get off at London Road.....' but then there was a huge difference between the London Road quite near to the East Midlands Airport AND the London Road near city center. If you get off at the early part of this long London Road, you will probably find yourself in the suburb and a small town.
