Don’t bother
My partner and me stayed for one night while I was on business. Given the time of year with the festival it was hard to get rooms in the city. Rooms were small, you only had one very soft pillow and you weren’t able to get an additional. The towels in the bathroom were tiny. The showers were so small you had to step in side ways and shower could only be turn on/off while in it. Rooms were very basic I feel bad for the student paying 114+ a week to stay here. There was a lot of noise as well due to building works and people running round the corridors.

Stay elsewhere if you can
Shortly after arriving in my room I discovered a used condom on the floor under the table!!!! Completely disgusting and unacceptable, I mean the cleaners missing a bit of litter I can get over but a used condom?! Radiator in the bedroom area didn’t work so I was freezing at night especially. Dirty marks all over the walls. Shower didn’t drain properly so you had to shower really quickly and even then you were up to your ankles in water .

Comfortable, but perhaps short on cleanliness
The room and set-up were comfortable and adequate. However, there was a smell in the bathroom that made me suspect that it wasn't as clean as it should be...

Walking distance to the city. Small bathrooms and uncomfortable bed. Have elevator. Kitchenette was functional. Also need to pay 5 pound if u need a hair dryer for the whole duration of your stay.

Satisfactory stay with room for improvement
Overall: Stay was satisfactory. Positive points: Staff were friendly Very clean and pleasant environment Location was pleasant Negative points: One of the lights wasn’t working in the room leaving it dark The bed creaked horribly - to the point where it would wake us up in the night if we moved Other: Room was smaller than in example picture although this wasn’t a problem
