PROS - Stayed so we could visit Warwick Castle for our son's birthday - staff kindly gave a card and special dessert. Rooms were clean and spacious and beds beautifully firm. Good atmosphere in the smart bar area. Breakfasts offered plenty of choice, all correctly cooked and presented well. Swim pool very pleasant. Great connections to motorways and absolutely no traffic noise. Excellent for familes.
But CONS - Dinner - the double baked cheese souffle starter was very sunken indeed, more than one would expect. We were quickly offered a replacement, and the duck terrine was good. Main courses of lamb, and the steak were well presented and tasty. But beware the passion fruit creme brulee. Must have eaten dozens of these over the years and have never encountered anything like this before. The china terrine was piping hot to touch, the caramalised topping may have been crisp but was swimming in greasy residue, the top and sides of the brulee had started to separate and were hot to taste, yet the middle was still ice cold and firm. We complained and the waiter wondered if it had been placed under a grill to caramelise instead of using the blow torch, and we pointed out that surely warming up a cream based chilled dessert was not advisable. To be fair we were offered a replacement, but by this stage were a little bit sceptical of getting a pudding worth piling on the calories for.
I should point out the restaurant was not even half full, so the chef was not too busy to get it right. Standard of the starters and dessert certainly not worthy of the Hilton name.
Bathroom decor in the club room could have been a bit more stylish eg. cheap wall tiles marred the effect of the marble floor.
