If you haven't been to a YHA for a while, try this place as it will be a treat. If your memories are of customer service akin to Attila the Hun, you will find things have moved on. It's a fantastic building, and old railway shed, converted to a high standard. Standard rooms as you would get in any YHA...

The bunk bed was surprisingly comfy, except when the fire alarm went off late one night. Cooked breakfast provided every morning, including my veggie and soya options. Really tasty. Stayed for 4 nights over Easter half term so quite busy and a bit noisy at times.

We thought we had Booked an en suite family room, but upon arrival we found ourselves in a room with 3 bunk beds and 1 chair. The only storage space was on or under beds and the showers and toilets were along the corridor. We asked to move but were told they were fully booked and that the family room...

I stayed here for four days and enjoyed myself very much. The place is very much family orientated but as a sole traveller I did not feel out of place. The staff are great, helpful and knowledgeable. The food is brilliant if you do not want to self cater. I can strongly recommend the macaroni cheese. The only downside was...

I stayed here for 4 nights, rooms were tiny, there was no space to put our stuff, there was sand in our beds too. As there was sand in my bed, as soon as I got there, I decided to take a shower, the shower that I used was very small and had a strange smell to it, I wasn't...

We spent 3 days here at over the August bank holiday. We booked the full catered activity break for us our 2 kids (9 and 13) as it was way cheaper than booking everything separately and we thought we'd give the food a go and have a break from busy kitchens and washing up. We were apprehensive about the food...

Thanks to staff, especially restaurant crew for a great stop over on our journey south. Clean, well aired rooms with plenty of space. Slightly tired but perfectly adequate bathrooms. We ate on site for both dinner and breakfast and were very well fed. The communal kitchen was very well resourced. Would definitely stay there again.

This is fair a accommodation. Not all the communal showers and bathrooms are particularly great, some even had a small smell to it. The rooms were not particularly spacious, and a big problem was that there were not many plugs available--there were only two in six bed dorm. This was lower than typical YHA standards.

Over night stay here . Pleasant surroundings and good idea to use an old railway station. Our room was clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and helpful. Evening meal was available on site. Shower rooms could do with a makeover,otherwise a good place to stay.

Stayed for one night with 3 adults. I don't have a lot of experience with YHA but this one seemed perfectly OK. Good rooms that were clean, basic and what you expect with bunk beds. Location is quite some way from the main town and also up a steep hill. Breakfast was good quality, varied and enough. Staff we met...
