Stayed in Alcuin Lodge between 17 and 18 September 2016. Absolutely love our room and the amenities provided! It was totally value-for-money and the location is great also. Darren was a fantastic host, very easy-going and makes good breakfast for the guests. No complaints at all! Thanks Darren for the wonderful experience!
