Not a good night's sleep
Contrary to many reviews, it was definitely noisy on Friday and Saturday night until midnight. It didn't help that a window in our room wouldn't fully close, so not only did it let all outside noise in but with it being winter, I had to try to sleep bundled up in my jumper. It was cold and the bed uncomfortable. Things were clean and staff pleasant, but the one amenity we tried to use (video games for the kids) turned out to be a bust (not working). The only amenity we truly needed and absolutely didn't get was a comfortable night's sleep. Very disappointing and the lack of sleep negatively impacted our trip and activities.
