This is the part of the response I received:-

Mmm, I stand corrected ref Xmas!

Ali. I know well the block you stay in for the room you need. I lay odds it won't be an issue as they will start at one end or the other not the middle two.

Thanks for the info Tom, annoying that the splash areas at the Grandstand is closed, I wasnt aware of this.

Sounds like they really need to get on with the refurb, Ive heard the rooms are looking pretty bad now. How was your room? Did anything stand out or just mainly wear and tear?

I wouldn't say the rooms are bad, just tired. Plus they have allowed them to reach an unacceptable standard that wouldn't be allowed by Hilton or others who provide 4 or 5* accommodation.

It's the little things that annoy me.
Why should I have to screw the drawer handles back on every visit?
Why are there marks in the emulsion on the walls
The sink plug waste is brown as the chrome has peeled off
Sit in the bath and glance at the water pipe feeding the loo. Solid rust. That happens due to condensation - well change it!

Furnishings aside I could make a Studio room look pristine for under $750. They should have done that 5 years ago.
