Hilton has unveiled its latest UK property in Reading, with a spoof video presented by a lookalike of Ricky Gervais’ infamous David Brent character.

The property is located on the Kennett Island Development just off the A33, and offers wifi internet access throughout. Features include a restaurant and bar, and a LivingWell Health Club with a 12.5-metre indoor pool, sauna, steam room and dance studio. For conferences a ballroom with separate reception area accommodates up to 400 delegates banquet-style, and there are eight other meetings rooms all with natural daylight.

To celebrate the hotel’s opening, Hilton employed the services of a Ricky Gervais lookalike to film a promotional video in the guise of the infamous TV character David Brent. Click on the link below to view the video.
