Booked for two nights, first trip to Hull, would I return....probably not. Hotel was in good location, bang slap in the middle of the town surrounded by shops, pubs, restaurants, very close to the Hospital A & E so sirens on the go throughout the day and evening. 20 mins walk from the KC Stadium which was the reason for...

Simple you get what you pay for. Side board of the wardrobe was broken / missing. Soap in the bathroom was horrible think they used the same soap for shower and for washing hands. Bed was just ok. However room size was big. Will I stay there again? Big fat No!

Just needs an evening menu as there is no food available. Plenty of local restaurants within the area just have to hope the weather is good. Staff are very helpful and shopping is very close for the wives when the husband is out trying to earn what she's spending.
