Clean, basic study-bedroom. No frills (you make your own bed and strip it on leaving) but very good value for money in a city where a B&B would have been twice as expensive. There might have been a few more pieces of cutlery around in the kitchen but no biggie!

This is the first time I have booked a university room and it was fantastic. The staff were brilliant and the facilities very good indeed. You need to advertise these facilities more to the general public.

The only thing I would have preferred was the option to book via Paypal. The actual room, experience and value for money were excellent and I would use the service again.
