Liked: Guests were really friendly and chilled out Love the shared kitchen and convenient helpful things like the free food cupboard and free toiletries box Lovely common room Everything was clean and well-kept

Disliked: The wifi in the rooms didnt work The staff were really friendly except one older lady at the reception who was extremely rude to us- she was annoyed that we wanted to keep our luggage at reception for the day, even tho we asked politely. And she was then angry to serve us when we returned making impatient comments. (I would have given Belford top ratings apart from this incident)
