We arrived and were allocated room 115 by a trainee assisted by somebody who we assumed knew which way was up. We had booked about 3 weeks in advance and were given room 115. (easily the worst room in any hotel we have ever stayed at) and I am hoping for the sake of The Abbey Hotel, the worst room they have got. A very small and hot room with bed against the wall, looking out into a very small dim, damp and dirty enclosed quadrangle, opposite the kitchens. Very hot and airless.
That night we lost about 10lbs each. Next morning we asked at the desk for a change and they could not have been more helpful,the receptionist promised us a better room ad she was true to her word.
The location is second to none, the breakfast also very good.
Don't stay in room 115.
