    Unfortunately, the accommodation was quite unclean. Every surface was dusty, the small tables had remnants of the previous customers food. The beds did not feel clean but had been febreezed! Towels smelled of cigarette smoke. Location was handy for town, but very noisy until midnight....More

    West End
    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
