“Fab experience that of a student, close to the city but away from the noise, comfortable facilities and a pleasant walk through the gardens (immaculately kept) to breakfast. A big thanks to the Porters in the front office for all their help/advice. There is a product to be enjoyed by anybody here.” Marilyn Robins, September 2013
