Bristol || Mother & Daughter Trip

A couple of weeks ago I got a phone call early in the morning, I was still in bed and mum brought up the phone to me and woke me up, she was very excited, I just wanted to go back to sleep. I'd originally applied for tickets to my mums favourite TV Show and this was the team calling to confirm they could offer us the tickets. I confirmed the tickets and myself and mum set about the task of getting it off work. Success!
Mum then decided she wanted to go up the night before, so I set upon booking us a room in the Hilton in Bristol.

On Sunday afternoon (23rd of November) myself and mum headed up to Bristol, Cribbs Causeway Mall for some Christmas shopping.

We were so hungry when we got there we, we went in search of somewhere to have lunch and I spotted yo! Sushi, somewhere I'd been once before in Cardiff but somewhere I promised to take mum, so we ate there. 

Emma was our server and she was fantastic, the best customer service we'd had all day. We collected quite a mountain of coloured plates. Emma our server was fantastic!

We then set about shopping...
I bought a lovely tartan dress from New Look for £19.99, and a leather jacket for £22.00, bargain!
We then set off to find the Hilton Hotel in Bristol, which would be our resting place until the next morning. We had a lovely twin room and stayed in room 116.

We were way to exhausted to go out for dinner so we made ourselves presentable and headed downstairs to the bar for something to eat. As per I wore my favourite Matalan Boxtop and New Look jeggings with wedges.

We ate in the bar as the restaurant was closed. I ordered the leek and potato soup for starter and beef lasagne for mains, whilst mum had fish and chips.

The soup wasn't anything special, and there was no sign of a warm bread roll. I asked for it and was given two pieces of French stick not warmed.

I was not impressed by this either, no sign of the 'crispy salad' either, just some wet green stuff.
We raised our concerns with the duty manager and he handled it very well and 50% was taken off our bill to compensate us which was very generous.
We had a lovely evening after we left the bar and we went back to the room.
The next morning we awoke early and headed downstairs for a lovely cooked breakfasr £11.00 per head.

We had a fantastic breakfast and then headed off for the Dream Factory to....*drum roll please* be part of the Deal or No Deal audience. A present of mine to my mum. I can't say much because we signed a confidentiality form but it was sooo much fun. 

EXTRA NOTE ABOUT Hilton Bristol - £14.99 for wifi. If you pay for wifi for 24 hours you need to re pay for it again the next day and then they'll deduct it from your bill in the morning when you check out* No idea why it's done this way but this is what I was told the next morning.

HUGE Thanks to Angela (Reception), Beth & Nikolas (Bar), Carol (I think, for breakfast) and Beth (Reception), all gave fantastic service throughout our stay.

We watched two shows and we were back in Wales by quarter to five. We had a fantastic couple of days and we're already planning our next trip!

Have you ever been in the audience? Would you?
