Don't usually stay in Hiltons as often overpriced but was attending a seminar at he hotel following day. At checkin, apparently somone had me down as two occupants in the room whereas I was a on my own. This should have been simple to rectify, but seemed to take an age. Hotel room had two small single beds, which are on wheels and move when yo usit on them. Wallpaper was peeling, light above mirror in bathroom not working. Had drink in bar in the evening. Went to restaurant but had not booked and it was full. Okay except greeting member of staff looked down his nose with an attitude of distain that we thought we could arrive at his restaurant and walk in. Went back to bar and ordered starter and main course that arrived together. The wiater even apologised as he bought them. If he knew it was wrong why did he still bring them together?
Seminar was well run though and shower was acceptable, breakfast and breakfast staff were good and check out quick but overall you pay a premium to stay at a Hilton and quality of some fittings and some staff substandard.
