Gentleman who greeted me was very welcoming and extremely accommodating. Made me feel very welcome. The manager was also very chatty and friendly. Accommodation was basic but had everything you needed and exceptionally clean. Kitchen was who stocked and constantly replenished. I didn't realise there wouldn't be any cooking utensils though but all appliances were there, including iron and ironing board. Being single, I felt very safe and it was excellent value for money. Doors were a bit noisy if someone let go of it rather than close carefully. But for the money and what you got for it, it was brilliant! Will definitely do again.
