    Excellent location. Friendly atmosphere and bonus free events — eg Wednesday evening has FREE wine and cheese at 8pm! Breakfast basic but OK and 24/7 tea/coffee. Rooms reasonable and beds comfortable, hot showers, all good! Lockers pretty average. 3rd time I've stayed there and will be back again as overall good value and well run.
