We stayed in a family room (2adults and 2 children) for one night as we decided to visit the deep and make a night of it and explore this part of Yorkshire. The room was cheap granted compared to competitors but I really wished id paid for the others as we had a dreadful night in the gilson. The room... More

It's a very ugly hotel on the outside (garish pink and very dated). Inside, the decor is pretty old fashioned too, but it's very well situated close to some amazing old Hull buildings, and just seconds from the station. I paid £35 for a very good sized double room which was totally clean, fairly basic and with a bed which... More

Very tired hotel! Maybe could do with complete overhaul, rooms are dingy in need of decorating, beds uncomfortable but mattress was clean, bed base leaves alot to be desired. I suppose you get what you pay for to be fair.

For the continental breakfast do not expect fruit salad croissants and Danish pastries just hot a drink and toast cereal. Good points the Internet was good and free, the... More

Efficient check in, clean tidy room and for only thirty pounds a night. Yes, there were slight issues, but not even worth discussing for the price. Would have no problems whatsoever recommending this hotel to anyone looking for a couple of nights on a budget.

The rooms were clean but basic. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and the bar area was great with sky and pool. The breakfast... More
