Close to central station
The hotel was clean and comfortable for our family group. Close to centeral station and close to other activities. Our room was in the front of the building and the noise from the street made it difficult to sleep. if the window was closed it wasn't too bad, but by the middle of the night the room was stuffy and opening the window made it too noisy to sleep. we used ear plugs and it was fine. perhaps request a room in the back of the building.

Quirky converted prison
We loved the fact that this was converted prison. The rooms (lower floor) were basic, but well worth the money esp given they had private bathroom, and they were adequate size for single use. Perhaps on the small side if you are sharing. It was a little noisy on the Sat eve as some guests returning from their night out seemed to have no consideration for others, but that can happen anywhere and we are still happy with our stay. The food in the hotel restaurant was also really nice.

An Experience!
Great surroundings, accessibility to walks, local shops, restaurants, cycling (everyone cycles). The hotel was a prison originally. The rooms were originally cells of the prison. Each hotel room was actually one and a half cells (the half was converted into the bath room) some rooms had bunk beds, some had a double bed. We went for the experience of sleeping in a prison.
