    “Over-priced and unsafe”

    I wouldn't recommend this as a venue for women on their own. In broad daylight, I felt very unsafe after having misogynist abuse from pub next door and dreaded returning late at night. I would normally have walked but felt the need to take a taxi right to the door.

    The room was poorly organised - no bedside light, the shower was impossible to manage without getting water everywhere and there was only one power point.

    It's also not appropriate for people attending conferences as you can't properly check out before 10 am - or get breakfast in the pub.

    It was clean and comfortable enough, but when you consider that I had paid £5 less per night for a 3 star hotel the previous weekend in Perth and that included breakfast, I do not consider Lil's value for money.
