We undertook a major refurbishment in 2020-2021. Many of the rooms were completely reconfigured and all rooms were redecorated, re-carpeted, new showers fitted and USB plug sockets installed throughout. All rooms are now connected to an internal air filtration system that delivers fresh filtered air throughout the building (a real added benefit in these COVID times).
