The adjective I would use to describe the room is dorm-like. There was a bed, a wooden chair, a desk that was also the TV stand and (this was a nice bit) a little kitchenette with a stovetop, microwave, sink, and fridge. There were no pictures on the walls (it's surprising how that mattered to me) and there's a rectangular darker patch on the carpet by the bed. But it was clean, the bed was comfy and larger than a twin, it was quiet and close to the university, and the price was awesome.

OK for a quick one night stay.
Loads of parking, and good value, but you get what you pay for. A little run down and the double room was very small without tea and coffee or decent free WiFi (was very slow). Good service though, so left me feeling very mixed, but knowing there are places around I'd rather stay, I won't be revisiting.

Charming, Clean and Pleasant
It is a lovely historical building. So nice to come home to. Inside does need some restoration and updating, like bathrooms and lounge furnishings. But it's present state is acceptable. Spent more time out than around the hotel. Staff were all extremely accommodating and friendly. Had a good breakfast but does need to accommodate vegan choices. Parking fine too. I would definitely recommend.

Convenient and friendly.
I love this hotel. This was my third stay and as usual the staff was pleasant and helpful. I like staying here because it is clean and not to touristy.
