The hotel is dated but we paid £36.00 for a large room and felt we could not complain. The hotel does need updating but the staff were helpful and for one night it was fine if you don't have too high expectations. We paid £78.00 for a guest house in Beverely and the Gilson was much better in comparison. We... More

I stayed for several weeks and was a reasonable budget hotel in Hull Centre, one morning i ran the shower (takes several minutes for water to heat up), under the pressure of the water flow , the shower head twisted which directed the water flow away from the bath tub onto the floor. Some water did seep through floorboards as... More

Stayed here for a week and could not have asked for better. The staff are great and couldnt be more helpful. The hotel rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable. We had the continental breakfast free each morning and there was a nice selection of things on offer. Its in a great central location right next to the bus and train... More

If you are travelling on a budget or just needing somewhere to sleep for the night then this is the place for you. Not the standard I would choose from choice but someone else booked it for our group. A basic no frills hotel in a good central location close to the railway station. I would not recommend this for... More

We stayed at the Gilson last weekend as we fancied a couple of nights away without travelling too far. I cannot speak to highly of either the staff or the hotel. Our room was very large, spotlessly clean, the bed was a king size and amazingly comfortable. Check in was a doddle, and the lovely gentleman on reception informed us... More

First impressions when we arrived there are limited opportunities for parking in front of the hotel,this needs to be factored in when booking as local parking can add £7.00 for 24 Hour periods. The staff were friendly and helpful.the room we stayed in although well proportioned,it was in three sections,a small lounge area with TV,a bathroom and a small bedroom,the... More

Gilson is nicely situated in the city centre. Room and bathroom were spacious, with a nice desk and the (double) bed was very comfortable. The room was a bit noisy, though. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a bit disappointing, since there was no salad nor vegetables available. Wifi codes were available for max. 24 hrs,... More

Very close to rail station and town centre. Very reasonable rates. Clean and comfortable., and good for the price. Breakfast not brilliant but cheap enough. Not free wifi as advertised-only one hour free.

I have stayed in hotels all over the country following my football team and this hotel is one of the best for decent accommodation at an excellent price. It is located three minutes from the train station right in the centre, close to the shops, good pubs and several interesting museums. I stayed in a very good sized, quiet, single... More
