This is a new venture on the university campus. I have a 'first year' there, and looked in for the night - on a long north-south drive - to offer the starving student a decent meal!
The online booking procedure still had a few teething troubles, so I had to speak to a real human being to secure a room. This is always preferable, in my view, but they really should sort out the computers so that people who don't like talking to people (!) can stay there also.
Checking in was a breeze, with excellent staff. Since the hotel is brand new, the bedroom and bathroom were spotless and faultless. I had a delightful night's sleep. The breakfast was copious. I'll be going back at the end of term. I don't need to, but I'm happy to have found an excuse to do so.
