City break

Liked: 10-15min walk to citycenter, close to train station, nice breakfast, comfy beds and pillows

Disliked: Hot water in our room was weak but there are other toilets in the hallway that you can use. The room I was assigned is by the road so I can hear the cars passing by at night.7:30 am, Smoke detector went off and had this very loud alarm that woke everyone up. It kept on going on and off for about 15minutes. This is not good for people who want to sleep.

Liked: Staff were fabulous, facilities were fantastic.

Disliked: The proximity to the station is both an advantage and a disadvantage - freight trains rattle past all night and literally shake the bunks. The windows could do with more sound proofing due to the constant noise from traffic and trains.
