Hello everyone ... or is more apt to be heard here, "Allo, there!" Well, I've been here for one full week and it's time for me weekly update. I'll do my best to try and convey to all of you my experiences. To give you the full effect, I have to back to the beginning. The beginning was for me, 3 weeks ago when I got a call at 6pm in the evening when …
... Britain. 1100s. It was built against the cliff the castle was on and it had rooms cut into the rock. Amazing. The castle was good too. Only parts of the gatehouse was medieval but the building on the top - a 1700s building for the very rich - was great. It is now a museum. You can hire the place for parties and weddings etc, so I'm thinking of my 60th birthday! We travelled back to pick up Dave and headed to ...
Pick up Sat Morning. Smooth handover. SC- Can you feel it? DC - No hardly tell it's there. First outing in the new Van at our first C&C site in Ashbourne. Lovely Site. Friendly helpful staff help us push it on the pitch. The Van is very comfy and warm.

... drink out of the fountain. We then sat down and basked in the Tuscan sun. Later that evening we went out to dinner at a nice little restaurant. I had gnocchi with a shrimp sauce. Yummy. Jeff had chicken with a balsamic sauce which he thought was very good . For starters we had mellon wrapped in prosciutto. We walked a bit more around the piazza that evening ... Ahhh I will miss you Siena! Buona ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Nottingham
Just returned from a loverly weekend at this hotel.
I have just laughed myself silly, reading all the bad reviews, because they're all true!!! Here's a few of my own 'experiences':
I had reservations about visiting this hotel after reading the reveiws on this site. I told the hilton about this and they were fantastic. They elayed any concerns that I had and with a smaller amount of trepidation, we went ahead with the booking.
My wife and I took advantage of the recent Times offer of "a two night bed and breakfast stay with a complementary bottle of champagne" at the Nottingham Hilton.
Stayed 4 nights on package in August 2004. We booked an executive room with welcome package. We were given a small room without any welcome basket or extras. Ensuite had cigarette ash around the loo and someone (presumably staff?) had used it and not flushed it. We had two single beds of unequal heights pushed together to make a double. One bed had no sheet on it. When we we complained we were told it was indeed an executive room and what we ordered. Dinner was was like canteen food and served in a section for those on a package. We only ate one of our 4 prepaid meals. Other hotel deals have come with excellent meals included. Overhearing another couple complaining we complained again. A welcome basket was delivered to our room on day 3. After constant overnight noise from a generator I complained a final time and was moved to another room. This time it was the executive we ordered - twice the size of the first they tried to to pawn off on us. Staff were rude and unhelpful. Location isn't great. Will never return no matter how good the offer appears. Swimming pool/leisure facilities are it's only saving grace.
Stayed at this hotel on 22nd jan for the one night, normally use the Royal Moat House but decided on a change. Overall I was satisfied with the hotel, the staff at reception were very helpful. Breakfast was good, not amazing however nothing to complain about. The Living Well centre down stairs was very clean and was a good cure for the night b4. The rooms could do with a spruce up, and the windows defo need slight attention! I would stay here again, I guess sometimes with the name Hilton you kind of expect the best of everything!
OK but not great
I stayed here on business in 2003 and found checking-in efficient and staff helpful and friendly. Room was good and just at the right temperature. Service in the restuarant was appalling however. It took 20 minutes for our drinks to be delivered and when they were the order was wrong. It took a further 40 minutes before we got our first course. The whole meal took over 2 and a half hours due to the slowless of the staff, and there was only one other couple being served!
I'd say this is a good hotel to stay in but if you are particularly hungry you may want to eat elsewhere.
I stayed at the Hilton in July 2004 for a couple of nights and found it OK overall.The room was large and nicely furnished but the beds were not very comfortable.We had to ask for a change of bed linen and towels after we checked in because they were dirty.I believe this was due to a slovenly cleaner who just couldn't be bothered to do the job properly and was a one off occurrence.The management were apologetic and we were amply compensated.There is no car parking at the hotel but there is a multi story carpark across the road which costs £13 per night. The food in the restaurant was very nice but expensive and the buffet style breakfast was great,lots of everything.It would appear to be a very popular hotel with stag and hen parties and so is very noisy in the bar area,something to bear in mind if visiting at the week-end.It is centrally located and within easy walking distance of the town centre,castle etc.
This hotel is ok. The rooms can be a little on the small side and not luxury. They are cosy, comfortable and clean. The leisure facilities are good. However, the Hilton does charge more than it is worth. A Travel Inn or similar would be just as good.
This is a nice older hotel which has been stupendously remodeled. The floors still creak, which is kind of neat. It is fairly centrally located about a 15 minute walk to the castle & Robin Hood stuff. Bathrooms are particularly nice. It has no A/C, so it was a bit warm in the middle of summer.
