In terms of location, the Hilton is probably one of the best positioned hotels in Brighton, walking anywhere from there is pretty straightforward.
The reception, breakfast room and hallways are all beautiful - with some great staff, and the breakfast was fantastic..
But my room was truly awful; starting with the bathroom, the filthy tiled floors, the damp mould on the ceiling and along both the bath & sink, and the water damaged chipboard fittings were all totally off putting.
I stayed there on a pretty damp and cold September weekend, yet still the room was absolutely boiling, and had no air conditioning controls and the windows only allowing you to open them by about an inch, but instead a dust covered fan left for us to hunt down in the back of the wardrobe - which didn't really solve the problem at all.
So, muggy and irritated, I got into my double bed, which was two singles awkwardly left side by side with no effort to keep them together.
So I feel pretty ripped off here, the room I got really wasn't worth anywhere near what I paid for it, and I feel pretty let down, because after going past this hotel countless times over the last few years, I was really excited about the stay..
