Been here many times ,generally at Xmas time ,but decided on an early year short break for a birthday treat.
Upgraded to a front balcony room using our Hilton points (room107)and for 900 points per room per night is probably worth it.Room was clean and tidy inside but missing certain features i.e. Bathrobes,slippers and complimentary basket which came with the deal.This was put right with a phone call to reception.The room is spacious with excellent views of Clifford's tower ,a large bathroom with bath and walk in shower .The only down side is its a bit noisy early morning due to deliveries out front and the beds are a bit uncomfortable for us personally.As mentioned by previous reviews the hotel could do with a bit of an upgrade as the double doors to the balcony are wood and don't close fully anymore.Although for once we got an excellent deal on the room at £122dbb per night so we can't complain.
Had our meals in the restaurant (the chefs special of steak and Yorkshire pudding was superb)and everything was excellent as usual .The staff are always cheerful and helpful but i have to say you have a gem in Shirley who cooks the breakfasts in the morning ,she is always smiling and happy and brightens up the mornings.
Special thanks to mike the concierge and his opposite number (not sure of his name)who are always helpful with our bags and the car also.
Tend to agree also with previous reviews that car parking is a bit in the expensive side and the wifi is also a bit pricey .
All in all though the hotel location ,service and staff make up for its short comings and because of that we are already booked for Xmas 2014 again.
