Ms Shannon Harvey, August 2011: Very basic accommodation, but good value for money. Location is actually quite a decent walk from the university where I was attending a conference, which was fine for me but not appropriate for others who had mobility problems.
Ms Georgia Emblen, August 2011: I was very impressed with the accommodation, the duvet was lovely and fluffy, and I was surprised at how clean the place was. It was a bit of a walk from campus but it made up for it having some complimentary biscuits on arrival. Thank you very much, and I will be recommending you to my friends. Georgia Emblen
