I wasn't expecting much as this is basic student accommodation. The room was clean and comfortable enough, although sparsely decorated.

My room was very spacious and extremely good value, especially when you take into account the huge breakfast you could eat.

The college is only open as an hotel during Easter and Summer recesses, but they offer B&B facilities that are very competitvely priced. I had a single room with shared bathroom, but the rooms do not have handbasins. There is a single toilet and two shower units between about 6 rooms and I was always able to use the facilities...
