Looks like some parts of hotel getting a refurb, but sadly some rooms very tired. My mattress was like road camber! You had to sleep diagonally across the hump to avoid rolling to the edges were springs very shot!! Shower did not work at all - no water pressure in hot pipe so pump (which sounded like a tractor) gave up! Wont be coming back!
