In the afternoon, Kyle had to go to camp, so we dropped him off at the weekend christian camp, there were tons of ten year old boys running around mental, and wee Holly packed a sad cause she was too young to stay over night. However after some pizza, loom banding, and going to see her daddy play in the pub seemed to cheer her up no end.
Still, after a busy day I am looking forward to bed.
... are as crazy for loom bands as everyone else, so we've been making bracelets for almost 3 days straight now. I even learned a new weaving technique! These seven year olds are way better than me.
The jet lag is still pretty strong though. When I said I was going to bed at 10 past six, the kids looked at me like I was messing with them. They were kind of surprised when I actually went to bed.
... for passport control. The car was fine and ticking over nicely the queue moving enough not to switch off but not enough to be meaningful. The temperature gauge began to rise but I thought nothing of it having repaired the fan, the gauge is a bit rubbish anyway and has a habit of going off the scale for a while anyway. We queued, the heater was now on full blast bathing us in 90 degree hot air, the temperature gauge kept rising we crawled through ...
The Final Leg began in nice weather. We negotiated a tight bend to reach the dump to empty our tanks. I set off up the camp lane while Raewyn went back to get the car. When she came round the bend and found me stopped she thought the worst, that I had hit something. The road was obstructed by a badly parked van belonging to an occupant of a cabin. His neighbour told me it belonged to ...
... up the part and a few extra bits (kids in a toy shop syndrome) it was off to the port, expecting a bit of a wait, but no we were on the ship by 19:15. Interestingly we were stopped and the van checked by customs on the way out, a new one on me. Once settled on board it was off to the restaurant for a lovely three course meal (yes, we are going to talk about food again ). A starter from a buffet selection including various salads, dips, meats and seafood - which made Ei ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Portsmouth
Like most of your reviewers I found problems with both the room and the food.
I stay at Hilton Hotels at least once a month. I had business in Portsmouth so it was appropriate to stay at the Portsmouth Hilton. The hotel is about 3-4 miles from Portsmouth town centre located within 50 metres of a busy motorway junction. Noise from this road pervades the whole hotel. The weather was extremely hot for the UK. None of the rooms had climate control so the choice was to have windows open (and be deafened by traffic noise and eaten by mosquitoes) or fry.
I have just landed a 6 month contract in Portsmouth and was fearing the worst when I checked into the Portsmouth Hilton after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. However I have found the hotel to be very acceptable so far and not experienced any of the problems mentioned.
Stayed 2 nights in a 'deluxe' room (we checked) for Trafalgar 200 booked via an agency. We were amazed to find that even if we had booked directly with the hotel, the standard rate for the room would have been £187 + VAT per night for a tired, cramped room bearing no relation to the illustration on the web site without aircon, a fridge/minibar or safe (secure) facilities.
I checked in with a group that took up around 10 rooms. 5 minutes after checkin I met most of the group back at the front desk all with one complaint or another. We were there in early Sept 2004 and it was apparently unseasonably warm so we had to sleep with the windows open. Since our room was at the back of the property this meant we had traffic noise from the adjoining interstate, and mosquitos like mad since there was no screen on the window.
Stayed in this hotel in 2003 and had some problems with mould etc which the Hilton were not very bothered about but they did offer me a discount if I stayed again.
We had tickets for the Goodwood Revial this year and decided it would be a treat to stay locally instead of commuting back and forth to London every day. I had booked the Hilton based on the standards Hilton Hotels had when I was a child. My, my how things have changed! I booked deluxe rooms based on their description on the Hilton website. When we arrived I wondered what made them so special. No special amenity packs, no bathrobes, no ironing facilities, no mini bar and beds as hard as the floor! Dinner in the restaurant was one of the worst meals I have ever encountered. The staff's excuse for poor service was that they were very busy in the kitchen with room service. My brother requested awake-up call for 7:15 am the following morning. The wake-up call arrived at 2:30 am. So much for a good nights sleep. We probably should have stayed at the Travel Lodge. At least they guarantee a good nights sleep or you don't pay.
Ok but not best Hilton we've stayed at
Stayed here on Hilton break for second time.Had family room which had 2 double beds. Room was clean and well maintained. Evening meal in restaurant was carvery ok but nothing special. Drinks as always very expensive bottle of wine which costs max. £3 in shops cost £16. Breakfast good but not best we've had at Hilton. Both mornings they ran out of cutlery and crockery.On Monday had to wait for table for breakfast didnt mind when we thought it was because hotel full but when got table and saw half restaurant empty and tables not cleared due to lack of staff wasnt pleased .Disappointed Leisure club closed all weekend due to light failure. wouldnt stay again at this Hilton.
Not good at all
I had the misfortune to stay here a few times in late 2003, always against my wishes after the first time. After stay #3 I refused to go back and insisted on the Marriott (which is much better and not much more expensive).
I've stayed a lot of Hilton hotels, and this is by far the worst. How they can charge the prices they do for such shabby accommodation is beyond me. If it was my own money I would be livid. I would not stay here again.
I stayed there for a night. It was a terribly managed hotel. The rooms are so bad that the tubs had mould. The most disgusting part was the sofas in the room were stained and we neither sat or put anything on them. This was one of the best rooms in the hotel. We saw at least 4 rooms. One room was so small that I laughed when I saw it! I thought it was a prank! I cannot understand how HILTON would put their name on this hotel. I have not yet stayed in another Hilton hotel since staying here.
