    Do they provide any blankets, or do the consumers have to bring their own? Also, what kind of food is in the breakfasts?

    They provide a pillow, duvet and fresh bedding. For breakfast, they provide toast and spreads, cereal, juice, tea and coffee. Hope this helps 😊

    Hello! I wanted to ask: is the kitchen available to cook food? I've seen pictures of a sink and whatnot but I wasn't sure.

    Response from Tom P | Reviewed this property |
    It is :-) The self-catering kitchens are open from 12.30pm until midnight. The kitchen is used to serve breakfast in the mornings, so can’t be used for other cooking during this time. Breakfast is at 7-10am.
