The purpose of the visit was to help us to settle our daughter into her digs and first week of her first year at one of the universities next door. One of the courses there is to do with hotel and hospitality management, hence they have their own hotel. Everything is intended to be done to 4* plus levels but...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The students were all so friendly and eager to help. They were on the 1st days of their rotation, so "yes" checking in might have taken longer than normal, but seldom has it been as enjoyable. The room was lovely & spotlessly clean. We ate dinner outside on the patio and the...

Our party of four stayed at the Stenden for one night and were thoroughly impressed with the high level of service, friendliness and helpfulness of the student-staff and the overall impression of hospitality. Our buffet breakfast was absolutely first-class! If I had to come up with a negative it would be that it is not within walking distance to the...

This is a university student-run hotel. Check-in was a bit slow as the receptionist needed constant assistance from the supervisor. An ambassador accompanied me to the hotel room - all first-time guests would definitely need to be escorted as the rooms are far away from the reception and there are multiple hallways and function rooms in between - and she...

My third stay at this hotel and I like it very much, mainly because it is staffed by students from the university and the hotel sits in the university which gives it a pleasant bustle and youthful touch.

Was unsure what to expect. Hotel was in the hotel school university. All the staff were polite and helpful and this is an excellent concept.

THis is a hotel run by students. It was a very nice experience to stay there, staff is charming and the rooms are quite spacious, modern and clean. Breakfast is super. It is a bit far from the city centre, but you can reach it in approx 15-20 minutes walking.

The location is easy accessible by bus (direct bus from train station to hotel) or car. Parking is free for hotel guests. It is not in the center, but walking distance.
