My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights this weekend, the staff were very pleasant and helpful, especially Julie behind the bar, very apologetic because of problem with certain drinks that were unavailable (Guinness), my husbands' preferred beer, the room (Marine View) was very nice, clean and spacious with a lovely bathroom, the bed was very comfortable. 2 minuses...

We have stayed here on several occasions and always go back. The Whittington and cat is in a great location easy to find and minutes walk from the bars, the Arena and the shopping centres. The rooms are top notch and great value for money. The bar and dinning area is very well decorated clean and bright. We was greeted... More

Lovely plush room (Marine view) with robes provided, tea/coffee &biscuits and bottled water. Lovely bathroom. The bed was comfy and the decor fresh, with a brand new carpet. Well located, only 5 mins to the marina, town centre and about 10mins walk to The Deep. The rooms ate over a bar/pub but it wasn't busy or noisy during our stay.... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night (Marine View room) on Thursday. The hotel is really nicely refurbished and the rooms are fantastic. They are just as cheap as the Holiday Inn, over the road, but are far, far superior. It was nice to stay in a proper place, rather than a boring chain hotel. The location is... More

They were in the marine view room, we should have been in the emerald room but as soon as the management knew that our stay was an... More

A largely unsupportive, unwelcoming stay for a regular solo traveller. No books to read. I was declined a polite request to take their food into my room. It arrived ten minutes late and was the wrong order. Bar was empty at 9.30pm on a Saturday night. No toaster or cooked breakfast option. Morrision's own brand yoghurts and pre-packaged pastries. No... More

The four poster bed was so comfy and the room was better than most five stars we have stayed in, if I'm ever back in hull will defiantly stay again! Host was lovely and very accommodating...just wish there was a... More

Really really nice place to stay, don't be put off by the local shops as this is just bad planning. The pub itself is your standard drinking pub with good pub food, the rooms are fantastic and very we'll presented, you have access to fruit, cereal, biscuits and croissants etc with fruit juice and all sorts of hot drinks so...

Looking for somewhere to base yourself that is central to Hull and surrounding areas? This is the place you want to go for. Michelle and the team are very welcoming, nothing is too much trouble, the pub has just been decorated too and the rooms (we stayed in the Master Suite) are lovely and for the price you pay, try...
