Myself and my partner stayed for 2 nights, 29th and 30th november, 2013. Our daughter and her boyfriend also came, they had stayed here about 3 weeks earlier and recommended it to us. 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

We arrived quite late and had booked the four poster room, the host was lovely and the room was immaculate. 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...

stayed one night in hull at the Whittington & Cat. Good location, near marina and town. We went to Princes Avenue for dinner and taxi was £4. Arrived after 2pm and pub was shut, you have to ring the door bell and the housekeeper came down to open the door for us. Lovely friendly welcome & everything was explained nicely.... More

Stayed here with my daughter and her skating friends for a figure skating competition at Hull Arena. The lady who welcomed us was very accommodating and although we had arrived later than expected she still arranged an evening meal. The rooms (I saw three of them) were very good, nicely decorated and very clean. I was a bit dubious about... More

Me and my partner stayed here in the master suite last Saturday (13th July) and I have to leave a mixed review, the lady who greeted us was friendly, the room was large and well presented and the bed, well I had the best nights sleep ever, even if it did squeek at every move. The breakfast (if you can... More
