Hilton @ LGW

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Although our flight on Sunday wasn’t particularly early we decided to spend the previous night at the Hilton at LGW. Upgraded to an executive lounge we went shopping for some food in the airport and then hit the lounge for the Saturday evening free drinks. The lounge at this hotel is not particularly impressive, nor is its range of nibbles. Although we had an executive room we didn’t get bathrobes which is unusual.
