Wales: School swaps hotel after strip club claim.

PARENTS forced a school to change plans for a school trip after reading internet reviews claiming the hotel had a strip joint downstairs.

Abertillery Comprehensive School, in South Wales, has now booked a different hotel for the skiing trip to Switzerland this half term.

One dissatisfied customer described the original hotel as "one notch below skid row" on a travel review website.

The former guest said: "The strip joint on the lower floor provided noisy music till 3am."

Another comment read: "Some in our group thought the hotel was used as a brothel."

An un-named relative of a pupil going on the trip said: "I think it's terrible. Would you let your 13-year-old go there?

We had a giggle when we first found out, but then the reality kicked in. It's not funny really."

Paul Stock, acting headteacher, said another hotel had been booked.

"There was some concern regarding the hotel because of a posting on an internet site," he said.

"As a result there were a number of parental complaints because of one person's write-up."
