News in brief:
Good Hilton St George’s Park auction deal available
Another interesting package has appeared on the Hilton Auctions site. It isn’t getting a lot of love at the moment but that is because people haven’t read the small print.
Long-term readers will remember my very positive review of Hilton St George’s Park in Staffordshire – home of the National Football Centre – a couple of years ago. The hotel website is here.
Because the hotel is used by the England football team, as well as visiting squads who train there, it was built to a very high standard. At the same time, because Staffordshire is not exactly the centre of the universe, it is excellent value for money when not required for football duties.
The Hilton Auctions site is offering, on a date of your choice before 30th September:
- Two night stay in a family suite at Hilton at St. George’s Park, including breakfast
- Dinner at The Restaurant
- Goody bags for the children upon arrival
- Passes to Alton Towers theme park (2 adults and 2 children)
- Family tour of the FA’s National Football Centre
- Passes to the National Memorial Arboretum, including activity packs for the children
The minimum bid to win is just 125,000 Hilton Honors points. There have not been any bids so far, so a cheeky bid of 125,000 points could secure it. The bid deadline is 28th July. You can see more details here.
