We stayed overnight to avoid a morning rush hour drive along the M62. Check in was efficient and friendly and we were able to upgrade our room to a junior suite for £15. So far so good. The room was fine, clean enough, but a bit "average". We had a drink in the bar and then ate in the restaurant which was a bit clinical and lacking in atmosphere, and we had to ask to change table having been put right at the entrance although the restaurant was pretty empty.
Starters were fine, but there was then a long and unacceptable wait for the main course. My wife had a rib eye steak, which she said was full of fat, and I had a special burger which was chewy and overcooked. Coffee was complimentary to compensate for the wait.
Back at the room we turned on the air con as it was very warm, The air con was extremely noisy and after several minutes we realised that it was making no difference to the room temperature. As it was getting late there seemed little point waiting for maintenance to come or moving room, so we gave up and switched it off, which resulted in a too warm and uncomfortable night.
We had room service breakfast to speed up getting across to the airport. The sliced melon we ordered was possible the hardest most unripe melon I have ever had, and the toast was barely done. At check out we mentioned the non working air con, and our overnight parking fee was waived to compensate.
Overall this was not a pleasant experience and not "Hilton" standard. There a number of hotels on the airport site, and we would not stay here again in similar circumstances.
