Anyway, on the plus side, despite being ill, I managed to drag my ass down to Syon Park, where we'd booked an overnight stay at the Hilton.
Dinner was wonderful, I loved dessert - chocolate heaven. The first room we were given had a broken sink plug, so we changed to a (nicer) one on the ground floor. That weekend the Hilton were hosting some sort of event - not sure what for, but later in the evening whilst we were enjoying a drink in the bar/lounge we were treated to the sight of many inebriated women holding their shoes in hand and traipsing bare-foot through the lobby. Ahh, England.
I love the soothing palette of this room - isn't it gorgeous?
