There seems to be a craze for refurbishment among BW properties - this is the third one on our present trip that's undergoing a facelift. It's worked well, too; the room offered adequate space, the beds were comfortable, and the shower had a superb head to it (I appreciate a shower whose jet envelops the whole body). There's no restaurant,...
