“Beautiful but Misleading”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

At first glance this is a lovely hotel, well deserving of it's Doubletree name, however once I made my way to the room I noticed the door was worn out looking, the walls faded and my goodness, the air conditioning drove me mad, it would constantly cycle on and off, and so on which made for a very uncomfortable experience. There is much room for improvement, but there is a promising foundation.

Staff was great, very friendly and helpful but rooms not so great. I have stayed at this hotel in the past also and for some reason the quality of rooms and the furniture was never this bad. May be this time they had me staying at this floor where all the rooms are not so average.

Thank you for recognizing our staff and thank you for your loyalty to DoubleTree by Hilton Somerset Hotel. I will be sure to pass this on to them. I do apologize that you were placed in a room that you felt was subpar in regards to condition items than you have been in the past. We do have an engineering staff member whose only responsibility is to perform upkeep on the rooms. Our new ownership is looking at renovating a few items in the hotel, so that should address some of the items you noticed during your last stay. Thank you for staying with us.

Good value for money compared to UK business-standard, hotel room rates. The rooms are undeniably spacious. Possibly further attention to detail needed by the hotel in the next year or two to refresh decor and maintain standards (for example, fridge was overly noisy and empty !)

First time here having stayed in a few of the other properties in the area was interested to compare.

Was for 2 nights on business and although check in area was busy process by using the desk for Honors members was both quick and efficient.

Although allocated room was on Honors floor I have to be honest and say although it was sufficient for my needs and represented good value for corporate rate paid room itself was a little dated and would definitely benefit from some small improvements. Albeit minor issues things such as paint flaking off frame of bathroom door, some dirt stains on walls and stains on in-house menu and information booklet are not what you expect to find.

On positive note you have several dining options to choose from and breakfast is also very good offering a varied selection that should cater for most tastes.

Also, and if for you then gym area is much larger than what you find in other hotels in the area and was a pleasant surprise.

Overall it fulfilled my needs, staff were very helpful and friendly but also feel that there are better options to choose from in the area.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad the hotel desk staff were able to get you checked in quickly and efficiently despite being busy when you arrived. Thank you for passing on the room conditions that you encountered. I do apologize that these items were not addressed prior to your check in. In regards to you mentioning the room decor, we are currently in discussion with our new ownership for renovations to take place, so the outdated feel of the property will be addressed soon. I'm glad to read that you enjoyed the breakfast and the fitness center, and that you found the staff to be helpful and friendly. That's is my goal as General Manager to have a caring, helpful and friendly staff. Thank you for choosing the DoubleTree by Hilton Somerset Hotel and I do hope you provide us the opportunity to serve you again. Thank you.

Very dissatisfied to find dried Blood on sheer curtains in main room. Very bad health hazard. Room was clean otherwise. Dead fly in toilet upon arrival. Coffee maker dirty, and water left in reservior.

I sincerely apologize for what you encounterd on the curtains and the condition of the coffee maker. At that point, the state of the rest of the room doesn't really matter. I have met with my Director of Housekeeping to address the issue. Thank you for letting me know so that I may address the issue.

Arrived with a tour group in September, found reception staff amazing. Only regret was that we couldn't stay any more than 3 days. Loved TJ's and their hospitality. It was a refreshing experience to arrive and find the spaciousness of the outdoors and the indoor ambiance...The warm chocolate chip cookies were awesome. Will certainly recommend anyone to stay..Love the DoubleTree by Hilton chain..

I was at the Hotel for a Shriners Ball, I was very impress with the food we had at dinner it was very good. I really enjoyed my stay and the service was excellent. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends or family. I travel 2 hours to get to the hotel but my GPS brought me their without any problems.
