Stayed here on a business trip, so i believe we got a corporate rate. However, the single rooms were well over £100 each.
The first room i was put in to was a very small single room, that had seen better days. The website pronounced the new refurbishment, but obviously this did not include the entire wing of the hotel we stayed in. The door was chipped at the bottom, scuff arks all over the wall, dirty carpet, mouldy shower. I have travelled extensively with work and for leisure and have never been offered a room as poor as this for such a high price.
After changing rooms i was met with a slightly better quality poor room, with complimentary stains on some of the bed linen. Obviously slightly embarassing as we were entertaining important clients. If this is the best Hilton can do in this day and age, they should be ashamed. The room i stayed in was 3 star at best.
Couple this with poor fod in the resident pub/ restaurant and it summed up a pretty rubbish stay.
