Myself and a friend stayed for one night at the Hilton which is ideally situated within 5 minutes walking distance of all the bars, shops and restaurants.
The hotel its self was tastefully decorated and in good repair. The bar and resteraunt area appeared very popular with residents and was very busy in the evening. The drinks are expensive though....15 pounds for two double Baileys! Next time I'll take my own bottle!
The breakfast was good and offered the usual choice of buffet style cereal, continental, full english and hot porridge.
The room was adequate. It could have been larger given it was two girls on a shopping/drinking trip but there was an ironing board, iron, hair dryer, fan and tea making facilities along with freeview TV. Disappointingly though, to use the hotels WI-Fi in your room there was a charge of 15 pounds; conversely it was free if you went down to the lobby!
The view from room 206 was abysmal and looked out on to the roof at the rear of the hotel which in turn housed an air-con unit. In the morning, 0645hrs to be precise, I was woken by what sounded like a tap dancer on speed and could only presume it was coming from the air-con unit kicking in. The bathroom too was very small and the shower would have been more powerful if I'd dribbled water on myself from the kettle!
A word of warning, you can have your vehicle valet parked in their carpark underneath the hotel at a cost of 17 pounds for 24hrs however, there is a pay and display carpark directly accross the road from the hotel which is much cheaper.
All in all it was adequate for the brief time we spent in it and reasonable value for the 72 pounds paid.
