Aimee Cleary

04 February 2009 Aimee would recommend this property

Liked: Friendly staff, break common room and facilities. While it was a great place to meet people, it was a little loud at night, which wasn't a problem for me, but may be for some. We stayed on the ground floor, so maybe it was quieter on other floors.
