The refurbishment is great. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is still a lot of construction going on that kicks off just a little early in the morning. We were up very early for the Dawn Service on Thursday morning and were hoping for a sleep in Friday morning but by 8 am the hammering etc was too load to sleep in. We were also very disappointed that our room was not cleaned on the Friday even though we left the room by 9.30 and didn't come back till almost 5.30 exhausted and then the house staff knocked at 6pm and offered to come in and make up our beds which was very inconvenient given that we were so exhausted and just wanted to relax.
