Fair 4,0
Not what you book.
Booked a single room with own bathroom for £62, there was a cheaper option of a twin room but had a shared bathroom,I didnt want to share a bathroom. Anyway after checking in and told which room to head to it didnt have its own bathroom,it was next door.I thought ah well thats not too bad as long as its just for my use,but no..i heard a few folk walking past at all hours going to the bathroom. Now i know its no massive deal but if you book something you expect it dont you. Place was really noisy at 6am on a Sunday morning with bumping and doors banging. Very quick to take payment from my card too. Just really disappointed.

Fantastic place to stay with well furnished and uplifting quality rooms and the breakfast is outstanding. They even helped to make sure I had breakfast early morning so that I was fed before getting my return trip back home. I would definitely stay here again.
