Any hotel that charges over £14.000 per day for an internet connection deserves to be named and shamed. I also think that any organisation that blatantly inflates prices by over 300% to fleece customers at times of high demand should be named and shamed. Step forward the Hilton Avisford Park. This establishment masquerades as a four star. From the standard of my room and that of my colleague, it was little better than a middle ranking B&B. And bearing in mind we were paying over £300 per night (Goodwood Festival of Speed weekend), the room rate was even more galling.
Establishments like this do our leisure industry no favours at all. One shudders to think of the reaction of the many foreign guests staying at the hotel when trying to understand why they where being asked to pay so much for so little.
Upsides? Well you can land your helicopter there. But I'd suggest you only do so in an emergency! However if a force landing is required there is one redeeming thing and that is the staff who are generally very helpful.More
