"Better than before."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I really liked the improvements that were being made The staff was amazing and the breakfast was the bomb as usual The only complaint was after a long day at hospital came back took a shower, shower water pressure not so great fell in bed of exhaustion and next room having a party so noise was a factor put ear plugs in and finally went to sleep So for the most part it was okay.
