Booked a night away at the Abode for my wifes birthday.
Got a good rate for a comfortable room and booked the car parking for £10 per night.
I checked in early to set the room up as a surprise for my wife. Check in was smooth, clerk was friendly enough and let me pre pay rather than on check out.
1st impressions of the hotel are striking, really looks nice. Reception is very nice and the lifts and corridors are spotless.
You have to use your room card to operate the lifts which is a good feature.
The room itself was lovely. The bed was huge and could fit probably 5 people on!
Bathrooms were very swanky-all black with kind of neon lighting.
Wooden floors in the room, floor to ceiling windows with a view over the corner of racecourse and of the castle.
A nice stay, with a nice room and good facilities.
For some reason though, I just wasn't as blown away by The Abode as I thought I'd be. There's nothing wrong and you'll have a good stay but I was expecting the wow factor and got the "meh" factor.
