Our room and bed was comfortable. The shower didn't have great pressure but was ample. We didn't use the restaurant so cannot comment on it. The entrance and driveway could use some serious remedial work. The whole place is in need of a total revamp to be honest. It was very quiet though down in "Wing 5". We did enjoy our stay there though.
