Room absolutely stunk of stale cigarettes. There was a sign on the door saying it was a smoking room but housekeeping staff in the corridor told us that this no longer applies. However, the room smelt so strong of cigarettes and there was an ashtray in the room. Smell had tried to be masked with air freshener but this made the overall smell worse. We only stayed 1 night to quickly get ready for and attend a wedding otherwise I would have asked for a change of room.
Price - Summer Offer for 2 nights bed & breakfast. Our room was upgraded to deluxe. Excellant breakfast.
Restaurant and lounge bar area environment very comfortable with the staff very helpful.
Bedrooms were in need of refurbishment. No air conditioning in rooms. Bathroom fittings in poor condition. Not the standard expected or seen previously from Hilton Hotels. Being mostly on one level, had a long walk to bedroom. Disappointed not to have breakfast, but could not justify the cost of £16.50 per person extra.
Hotel has a pool and was easy to find and had plenty of parking spaces. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was included in the price Powerful hairdrier provided. The bed was comfortable.
The pool is small and quite claustrophobic - an odd shape to accomodate more than 2 adults wishing to swim careful 'lengths'. The jacuzi was noisy and intrusive and I didn't find the swim a relaxing experience - a great shame.
Greeted by beer glass and rubbish on the reception steps.Told on arrival that the room telephone was not working and an offer made to move us to an alternative hotel but no apology. Room ridiculously far away from reception. Bathroom was grubby. No crisps, peanuts or similar snacks available at bar.
