A bit run down. Getting a good shower just wasn’t possible. We stayed in one of the executive suites. The balcony right on the river was great, but really buggy, so you don’t use it very much. I’m old and I think the waterfront would be perfect for someone young and on a budget. Next time, I will stay next door at the David Livingstone.
