Efficient & comfortable
Mr Desmond O

Great place to stay. Great & welcoming staff. Facilities are great value for money & having attached private bathroom is key. They provide in-room free coffee, towels, linens & there's a nearby kitchenette for use. Lots of nice restaurants nearby & High Street with all the nice shops is close by. Definitely recommend!
Dr Shohinee S

Overall good. A clean standard room with ensuite. No complaints
Dr Richard F

Glad to have found you, and will be back! Comfortable, safe, clean, very well-appointed room, and charming modern approximation to a mediaeval college. Only one minor moan - it wasn't at all clear how to get into the building on first arrival! A little notice, out front, about the hidden doorbell wouldn't come amiss.
Ms Margaret C

All very good - no problems whatsoever, nice and handy, and efficient reception. I'd certainly do it again, and recommend it to others.
Mr Colin B
