We wanted to stay somewhere that was clean and tidy and that’s what we got. Quiet rooms and not much corridor noise made for a lovely sleep. The pool was ok, my 2 year old loved it. Would stay here again.

I didn't notice any bike lockers either. The lift is really tiny. You won't fit a bike in there easily. The stairs isn't much better so make sure you stay on the ground floor.
