Stayed for one night and was very pleasantly surprised. After reading some of the reviews I was quite worried about my stay. The hotel was easy to find and check in very easy. Bedroom was clean and the bed very comfortable. Decor colour scheme a bit strange but otherwise fine, staff were very helpful and friendly. For a city centre... More

Just come back from a stay at the Gilson Hotel. The hotel is in a good central location. The decor is a bit dated, but I found the bedroom to be clean, spacious and warm & the en-suite modern. Jonathan on reception was very helpful. I thought it was very good value for money.

Good price for 1 night, room abit shabby, hole in the door, toilet got blocked and started overflowing for no apparent reason! No parking. Shower pressure was good! Minimal staff interaction. Breakfast could improve for £6.50! A few other guests being sick around the hotel which wasn't cleaned up promptly or effectively. All in all not the worst I've stayed... More

Bit concerned after reading some of the reviews on this place but didn't need to worry it was very good for a cheap hotel and I have stayed in worse and paid a hell of a lot more. One thing I have to say don't go by the postcode on the site, it's 100% wrong and sends you about a... More

My wife and I and two friends stayed at this hotel for two nights on 9 and 10 February 2015 (football match) and after arrival we stayed because it was less hassle than finding another hotel and because it was only for two nights. We had booked "Superior Rooms" (120 and 124), although after arriving we did wonder what they... More

We stopped her Wednesday night and for the price we paid (£31.50) we wasn't expecting that much from the hotel. The car parking outside only had a few spaces but with the area its in ere isn't room for parking. The reception area looks a little dated but clean and the reception staff was very friendly. We had a room... More
