Location is everything, and that is certainly the case here. It is tired, but undergoing restoration I understand. One problem was the shower temp wildly oscillates, from cold to burning, which is fine for an adult, but not kids. Having said that - it was actually a proper shower, not one over the bath!
Got a high floor which we were happy with and even though there was construction work, we could barely hear a thing.
The one thing that REALLY annoyed me was that there was no recognition of status when checking in, nor at any other time during our three day stay, mind you sadly that's across the board as I'm beginning to realise lately. I'm sorry, but as a top tier member, I would expect a few things considering what it costs to get there etc.
Other than that I would say value for money, with friendly staff.
