Great exhibition, not great restaurant
The art exhibition at the Queens Gallery was fabulous and was thoroughly enjoyed by my friend and me. However the hotel was not fabulous. The restaurant was dark and tucked away behind the bar area with very loud music playing to the accompaniment of a workman hammering somthing on to a wall. We were kept waiting for 30 mins before our tea arrived, which actually was very nice. Very interesting and tasty little sandwiches , lovely warm scones and delicious little pastries. The original hotel listed in the package, The Grosvenor, is so much nicer. But of course, the food may not have been as nice. If you change to hotel from the Hilton - which has a ghastly location beside the Home Office - to somewhere much nicer, the whole experience would have been first class.
