Liked: The welcome was anything but friendly. The accommodation is very very dated but was clean and warm. The sheets were threadbare and the decor was battered and bruised. The Breakfast was basic to say the least but for the price you can't complain. Breakfast consisted of 2 types of cereal, toast, yogurt, juice and a hot drinks. The accommodation is on a very busy road but has excellent transport links into the city centre. All in all you get what you pay for, if you want clean and functional then this is a good place to stay but don't expect anything more.

Disliked: Decor and proximity to the road

Liked: We didnt like anything about our stay!!

Disliked: Everything, the lady that checked us in didnt point use in the direction of our room, she didnt tell use what time breakfast started and finished at. She didnt remind us of the check out time. The ground floor of the house was very dark. The whole house smelt of old and damp, in our room the was mould on the ceiling in the bathroom and the paint was peeling off the window board and the skirting board. We could wait to leave from the moment we arrived! On our departure we met the lady that checked us in on the stairs, she didnt even speak to us. We went outside to place our bags in the car and she to the door to for the keys and muttered thanks with a dirty look.

Liked: The receptionist (Noel) was very kind and helpfull. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable.

Disliked: It's stated as beeing "10 minutes away" from the city centre, but it's more like 20 minutes by bus. The bus stop is less than 100 mt away, though.
