About the best priced hotel in Hull. Great central location. Some rooms are very basic, but modernisation is under way. Rooms clean, beds ok, can't comment on food, as I have not tried it. Always try for a room at back. Views are rubbish but it is a lot quieter. Sure their are some draw backs, like limited parking, but... More

Location Very central location (next to the train station) with a small parking area - note you could try a timed parking in the side streets or drive to Wilberforce St for free parking and 5 min walk to hotel. Value I stayed on a Friday and Saturday for £27/night for a single room. Although the room hasn't been decorated... More

We booked this hotel through a late booking sight on the date of our stay, and yes it was cheep, BUT we had done the same the week before and only paid £20 more for a Hilton room, so price isnt an excuse.

This hotel is really good for the price. Our room was simple but adequate with a newly refurbished bathroom, clean towels and tea and coffee facilities. Staff were exceptionally friendly and nothing was too much trouble. There's a 24hour bar/lounge that was handy as and when we needed it! I didn't experience any noise during the night and central location... More

Just came back from a weekend at the Gilson Hotel in Hull.

Obviously some very miserly picky reviewers have been to this hotel. It is a little drab and dated but it does the job. The breakfast is very good for the price and I had a good night's sleep. I paid for it myself as staying over was a cheaper option than travelling home to York and back again the next... More

Myself and my husband generally stay in Hull at least once a month, our usual hotel was fully booked so we thought we'd try the gilson hotel....huge mistake! Don't believe the free parking spaces available, there is around 10 spaces! We checked in fine, went straight to our room (132) if you get this room I recommend you change immediately!... More

We arrived at 9.30pm & checked out at 9.00am, I wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer. The rooms were clean but very basic & dated. There is no air conditioning in the rooms so it was very difficult to sleep on a hot humid July evening. We couldn't opened a window due to the noise from the main road,... More
