We stayed here whilst attending a friend's wedding in the area. This is a pub/restaurant with accommodation facilities on the first floor. Location good and easy to find, right opposite Hull University. Plenty of free parking. Private guest access or via the pub. Check-in easy, friendly staff. Access to some rooms is a bit awkward (long, winding corridors and stairs)... More

Booked a room for our daughter's graduation ceremony simply for its close proximity to the university. It is part of 'The Flaming Grill' chain so we went with an "it's only for one night and we won't have to go looking for food." attitude. We were therefore pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the welcome we received. The other staff... More

The only pub to stay in if you are visiting Hull University. So close, Very spacious in the bar area with friendly staff. Food is adequate and the Rooms are well equipped. The only down side is the noise from the pub late at night!

We booked 2 rooms at the old grey mare in Hull to stay in after our sons graduation from Hull University. We only used the hotel for the room and although it was cheap I found it disappointing that the hot water did not work in the shower and the bed was well worn Enough said really other than to...

This is a typical pub / restaurant that lends itself between the two categories and so ends up excelling at neither. The pool table has certainly seen better days, but being opposite a university I would think is well used. I wandered into this establishment with a friend on one occasion, and can't dig the 70's night entertainment enjoyed by... More

A bunch of us (12 in total) going to a Royal Navy reunion nearby, stayed at the Old Grey Mare, some for 1 night, some for 2 nights. Ideal venue for a load of ageing but still lively ex-matelots! The rooms were very clean and functional, I travel a lot for business and I have paid a lot more and... More

Staff were helpful and friendly, and as the pub was showing all the sports so had a great time. Food and drink was well priced - what more can you ask for. Definately would go again when next...

Stayed with colleagues for a business trip rooms adequate although the corridors could do with a hoover. Food in restaurant was ok but they could do with a few more lighter snacks . The big draw back was that the restaurant does not open until 8 in the morning so on both days with early meetings we went without breakfast... More

For the money I paid I can't really complain. £78 for two nights is good value but I think I was above the kitchen as both days and into the night there was horrendous banging every 30 seconds like someone slamming a door or drawer. It wasn't a guest as it came from downstairs. I could hear raised voices too.... More
