Positive Reviews

Good communal areas.

The lounge area is large, peaceful ... and a happy oasis ... next to the small kitchen where it’s very easy to prepare a drink or snack. There’s a large Free view TV in the lounge area too.

Super breakfast.

Yes there are full cooked choices and it’s all backed up with cereals, yogurts, jams, coffee etc.

Comfortable rooms.

Nicely furnished and well fitted out. They can be a bit on the compact side but clean and perfectly OK, with excellent shower.

Negative Reviews

A ‘degree’ of university overselling.

Accommodation is all very small and designed for single occupancy by students. There’s no storage space for clothes and the en-suite is tiny indeed. Several of these rooms would fit in a standard room in one of the budget hotel chains. Not many honours given for these rooms!

Low marks for breakfast.

It’s OK but doubt it’s going to be the highlight of anyone’s day. Pretty basic and with the small, cramped rooms as well ... these tariffs are quite imaginative!

There are lessons to be learned.

The Wi-Fi doesn’t work + the loo is difficult to flush. The grounds outside are fabulous. It would be great if they’d given the same attention to rooms before letting them out to the unsuspecting public.
