Liked: The staff gave us free apple crumble! They made a good effort to encourage socialising, although many guests preferred their mobile phones. They cater well to hikers. They have many blankets and hot water bottles, good for its cold weather.

Disliked: Unfortunately the room was cold (but we were there in winter!) When we got there the room hadn't been cleaned. The kind staff did then clean it but the new bedding was still old and a bit stained.

Liked: Have to admit we didn't stay long but everyone was friendly and honest ( they warned us the light in our room was broken but provided lamps) the kitchen was clean and well stocked and had free tea and coffee in it :) there was an unexplained wet patch in our room that it would have been nice if it had been sorted before arrival but we just wore shoes so.it was Fine! Bluebridge shuttle stops across the road ( although it's not a long walk) and not far to bus stop for naked bus so was perfect for us! Would recommend!
