“Very convenient and well priced”
Reviewed 3 August 2008

My husband and I stayed 3 nights and found the kitchen and dining room well equipped and easy to access.
The showers and toilets were adequate and clean.
But the sheet that covered the mattress was covered in hair and had to be brushed away before we felt able to use the bed.
Staff were pleasant and mixing with students and travellers from across the globe was a big plus.
