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.

We stayed at the Gilson for one night to celebrate a friends birthday in October. We have stayed here before and find the hotel very central for shopping and the nightlife. Although quite dated the hotel was clean and tidy. We will hopefully be staying here again for some Christmas shopping.

ok it's a budget hotel, but it's stop on for the money!! The hotel is clean, well placed ,the rooms large and quiet, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The free breakfast is basic but enough to aid recovery following a night out in lively Hull, so all in all i was very pleased and would stay there... More
