Stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding at the hotel. Once you find the hotel, and it is not easy, you should find the following:-
Staff excellent couldnt do enough, no request was too much trouble. Booked an executive room.
Bland rooms, resemble a travelodge on first look. nice lighting, very uncomfortable single chair plus office style chair for working. Basic bedding no luxury touches, cushions or colour. Not a patch on Sheraton "sweet sleeper" beds.
Wardrobe very badly designed with doors that keep malfunctioning (had to call maintenenance twice as doors jammed blocking access to safe) and clothes rail running back to front making clothes dificult to access.
Smart bathroom with separate bath and shower, however no shower attachement in bath so have to take shower if you want to wash your hair!
Cost cutting is refelected in ammenties for one guest only (we were two) i.e one bottle of comp water, one packet of buiscuits etc. Not what you expect from Hilton brand.
Executive lounge was open for compl drinks in the evening 18:00-20-30 with mediocre canapes the breakfast spread is excellent and service to match.
However, apart from the wedding we attended the highlight of the stay was dinner in Mr Toddiwallas Kitchen, the in house indian restuarant.
Excellent quality food with exceptional service, looks expensive but when you see the quality it is very good value. The beetroot and coconut samosas were a sensation as was the tandoori duck and vennison. Portions are generous (we could barely manage two courses) and cost for two without drinks was aprox £70 far less than central london prices for same quality.
