This was my first stay a Hilton Hampton, I usually stay at Premier Inn. So I will compare the two.
4/5 Stars - As you would expect as this hotel was brand new. Better than a Premier Inn.
Some nice touches such as adjoining room doors and a decent size TV screen.
Room was clean and easy to convert to four in a room by pulling open the sofa.
Nice desk and chair. There was also a decent Gym with the treadmills/weights etc
3 Stars - Very pleasant, but didn't ask how our stay was when we left. Not as good/switched on as recent Premier Inn staff.
0 Star - The 'Free' Breakfast was the worst i've ever had. The scrambled egg and coffee were both like powder. Does not even compare to a Premier Inn Breakfast, with its Costa Coffee and massive additional choice. If the Breakfast was as good as Premier Inn, I would have give a total review of 4/5 Stars.
1 Star - I thought the 'Free' WiFi was going to be good as I had a decent signal. Unfortunately something is very wrong in my room. I measured the download speed at a maximum 0.71Meg in my room and I couldn't get ANYTHING to stream on my iPodTouch. If fact my upload speed was higher. No either the Wifi isn't configured correctly OR the download speed is being strangled by the hotel. Useless for anything other than Text Browsing or Email.
Parking/Access to M5/Airport
5 Stars - Free and lots of Spaces.
So in summary this is a nice Hotel to sleep in, but make sure you have breakfast elsewhere.
And instead of the 'Free' WiFi just read one of their 'Free' Newspapers.
If I was with family, I would chose a refurbished Premier Inn over Hilton Hampton and get the kids eat free Breakfast.
If I was just with my partner I would choose the Hilton Hampton and go out for Breakfast.
