    No hot water, WiFi, breakfast or anyone to complain to. Not clean, friendly or secure. I recommend sleeping in your car! £68 for the experience. This is not representative of most budget accommodation in the UK.More

    Booked this place before I read the reviews, but not able to cancel so lost £59, most other places will refund up to 24hrs in advance, not this place. Read the reviews, look at the pics and make your decisions wisley, but do this first....More
