The location was amazing a quick bus ride or Tube to central London and nearby locations. Far enough out of the centre to be quiet at night, not too much traffic, still enough little places to eat around. Love the ambiance, the cottage is really nice and the decor quite unique. Loved the fact that they had a dorm with double beds, when travelling with only one other person it is nice to have your space together in one place and not in separate beds.
The weather was really hot and the room didn't have any windows that opened, they did provide good fans, but they were a bit loud when you're trying to sleep. Other people in the room weren't always considerate about noise when people were sleeping.
The building is very beautiful.
The rooms can be very hot at summer and they have huge fans at the rooms to help with the heat. However the fans make a lot of noise at night and makes it very difficult to sleep at night.
Comfortable (but popular) common room. Beautiful building.
Dorm room needed more ventilation. There were some power strips to plug in and charge things, but they could have had more, and easier to reach.
Helpful staff and clean toilets and showers. Brilliant location, and tasteful design. There’s a cheap supermarket nearby.
The kitchen wasn’t clean. No outlets for each bed.
No tissue in the toilet
