It’s big, it’s modern, it’s a safe bet at a sensible basic price, however, everything is optional: Bottle of water £3.95; night’s internet access £15; breakfast £10. Parking, in a secure car park under the hotel, is free and feels safe. Concierge is a pleasant touch, adding a bright and cheerful welcome to the hotel. Frustrating, long wait, at reception as the rest of the universe was queuing before me. There is a roped-off position at the desk for regulars to Hilton, otherwise you are cattle. Room had a high-tech TV with internet access giving similar functions to a PC, however, its response to remote control inputs was so slow to as make it laughable. Room is a standard affair, familiar to all modern hotels, with nothing to write about, positive or negative. Very clean room. Buffet breakfast in heated platters.
