We stayed at ABC for two nights and had I not paid in full on arrival, before seeing the room we would have moved to one of he many Hotels around the area.
We were placed in a double behind the reception, we had been moved from a second floor room as it was abvious that my wife would not have been able to make the stairs.
The room it self was not small but was very poorly designed.
The double bed was placed up against he window so that we both had to get in the bed from the same side.
The curtain would not fully close and the bright light outside the front door light up the room all night.
The TV and "SKY" box was fixed to the wall at the bottom of the bed so that even when we moved the bed a little way from the window you could not get passed it.
When switching on the TV it required a nack of quickly selecting the Aux option. So we had to leave the TV on all night once the SKY box was turned off so we could get morning TV.
One of there adverts said that they had SKY TV, this was the box but there was no card installed so only free channels were available.
The bathroom was small with knees against the door when you sat down on the toilet.
The tea making facilities (kettle) could not be used unless we placed in on the floor on the other side of the room.
Breakfast was a bit strange with swissroll and cheap liver pate on the menu. The only cooked options were baked beens, scrambled eggs and hard boiled eggs.
They had a notice on their board that said you could get a cheaper taxi if you booked at reception. So as we were going to a show we booked. Whilst it was a nice car unfortunatly the driver did not know where our Theatre was (not a unknown one). When we arrived we were charged £20! The return journey we decided to use a Black Cab and got back for £17.
Whe I complained I was given back £3 from reception but we left with a bad taste in our mouths and could not get out quick enougth.
We will not stay here again even at half the price. Whilst it was cleen it was not comftable.
