The Wardonia has a fresher look than many of its neighbors. The inn posts floor plans of its rooms online (spoiler alert: they’re wee), and its TVs offer more than 30 channels, both of which are unusual for the city. The rooms’ style is less unusual—very simple in blue and white fabrics and plain brown wainscoting, bathrooms with showers but not tubs—although the crazy low rates, which haven’t gone up in half a decade, are something to astound. Everything’s en suite, so it doesn’t seem like the owners have cut corners to deliver low rates apart from not serving breakfast. The Wardonia is plainly a value contender. Prices dip about £10 lower in winter.
