Smoking Policy

No smoking indoors

Check-in Guide

You can collect your keys from reception when you arrive. Remember, if you have been asked to do so, make sure you have booked a check-in slot. At your allotted time, just come straight to the main reception with your photo ID and the team will have your keys ready and waiting for you.

Check-out Guide

You’re responsible for leaving your room clean and empty. You can recycle or donate unwanted items, and all rubbish must be disposed of responsibly. Any items left in your room will be removed, and we’ll need to apply a charge for this.


If you’re sharing a flat, it’s a good idea to find out when everyone is leaving so that the cleaning in your kitchen and hallway can be shared equally.


Please leave your kitchen / lounge / hallway clean and empty – don’t forget to clean inside the fridge and freezer, and to empty your cupboards to avoid cleaning charges. If there are any items or food left in the kitchen or hallway, then removal charges may apply.


All cleaning, damage and removal charges will be split equally between all tenants.

Double Occupancy Policy

Double occupancy rooms:

No double occupancy rooms.
