Very Small - Room 428

Room was clean enough with reasonable facilities, but very small.

Literally couldn't swing a cat in the bathroom. Great location!!

Great for the price

I stayed in a twin room with my friend.

It was about 15 minutes walk from Waverley. Not too far from the hub and in a nice area. We both agreed that the room was clean, modern, fresh and compact, with mostly everything we might need included. We would stay there again, especially as the price was most agreeable. The only complaint I had was that the room became very clammy the next morning, due to the heat from the shower, the temperature outside and the fact that there were probably many other guests in the building. The lack of air conditioning meant that I became too hot and had to stand outside. The small fan that was affixed to the top of the unit was unable to cool me down, especially as it was mostly facing the wrong way, was stuck to the unit therefore immovable, and was far too high up to make a difference. I'd probably want to stay here again in Autumn or Winter when it's cooler outside (but then again the heat in the building might be too high). Finally, speaking of heating, the heater in the room was right up against my friend's bed. We both thought that this would be dangerous if switched on and should be moved to another wall. On a more positive note, the breakfast was more than I had bargained for and was included in the price of the room, so we were pleased with that and what was on offer.
