We stayed here for two nights while attending a wedding. The place is clean and feels modern. The check-in was quick and friendly.
Our room was small and had a small en suite bathroom and a double bed. It would have been fine for single occupancy but was a tight squeeze for two of us with two big suitcases. It was good to have a kettle and nice teabags provided. The toiletries were also good quality Arran Aromatics.
Bizarrely, there was no long hanging space in the wardrobe. I was able to hang my kilt, but it still touched the floor of the wardrobe. Not great, I imagine, for ladies' dresses or long coats. The rooms were pretty well soundproofed and we did sleep soundly.
There was a long (15 minute) queue for breakfast service. The food was however good once we got there.
The place is on the edge of the city but it's only a 15 minute walk to the centre.
A good option if you're on a budget, but the room is tiny. Worth considering one of the university's other, more central halls where you get a much larger room with a shared bathroom.
