We stayed for our last night after walking Hadrian's wall. The flats had 7 single rooms and were clean and warm. The kitchen facilities were great and the space meant that we could all squeeze around and eat together (16 of us)
My only gripe would be the shower, there was a separate loo, separate shower and a bathroom with a bath and loo. Whilst I was having a shower one of the others in my party ran a bath and the shower went off (totally) leaving me covered in shampoo and freezing and unable to do anything about it. If you're aware of the situation it's not an issue (just time having a wash better) but after a 19 mile walk it really wasn't what I needed.
The strange undersheet/top sheet/pillow combo is something that everyone needs to experience at least once in their life too!
Might be worth taking earplugs as although you're in a single room, the noise from the flat travels a lot.
I'd definitely visit again, and think it would be a good base for exploring the area.
