Evaluations of DoubleTree by Hilton Swindon
Generally ok. Food was fine.
Bathroom was a bit worn and not pristine clean. Room service was rubbish, over an hour after saying 20-30 minutes.
Very poor service & quality is not consistent.
General all rounder
Room was cleaned.
Services in the restaurant are very slow.
Rooms are of a reasonable standard. The Breakfast was hot with a varied choice. Provision of a card asking for visitor's comments.
The reception area and lifts are engulfed by the pungentsmell of COOKING OIL (the staff seem oblivious to this - I suspect that working in the environment on a daily basis has made them immune to the effects). The reception itself should have been refurbished at least two or three years ago. The decor is scuffed, chipped and tasteless. In particular, the lack of a carpet gives the whole area the feeling of a Bus Station. The coffee is brown, muddy and like the decor tasteless (I suspect cost saving mesures mean theat insufficient coffee powder is used and labour saving measures mean that far too much is made at one time which leads to the evapouration of any semblence to coffee after a hour or so). Whoever the Franchisor is they need to action these points with the Franchisee - The Swindon Hilton is damaging the brand - I would think twice in the future about staying at a Group establishment. The Duty Manager (27 July 2008) had little hesitation in stating that there was a funding issue - he also added that in the two years he had worked at the Swindon Hilton there had been 4 inspections by the Hilton Group - I might sugggest that the next time the evaluation team visit they do so when the fryers are on and that they take a couple of large inhalations as they walk through the front door.
