Although bed clean the room smelt of cigarettes. And attention to the cleaning in corners and on sills could be improved. Staff very friendly and food good. The hotel was in a perfect location for the town centre.

Stayed 1 night in this hotel & won't stay again. Low price, but was still disappointed. Good house keeping should be a given. The linen & towels were good & bathroom tiled well. However Stained duvet, which I didn't notice until my husband pulled his quilt over to leave in a tidy manner, exposing the duvet inside the duvet cover.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights recently, lovely dated hotel right on the doorstep of the town centre. For £40 a night I couldn't fault the hotel, the staff we're an absolute asset to this place, they're knowledge of the area was fantastic and when asked to do something it was done with a smile how it should be!! The breakfast... More

So I had to book a last minute hotel for me and my family to attend my granddads funeral. When searching the web the Gilson Hotel appeared and looking at the pictures it seemed reasonably priced. So we arrived the day before the funeral after a long drive up from London were we found that there was only a few... More

nice hotel with proper equipment. got a free upgrade from single bed to twin bed room. apart of the lighting a bit deem in the room, others were perfectly fine. the hotel can easily access to town centre, bus station/ Hull train station and mall (St Stephen). definitely will come back to this hotel again when i visit to Hull.

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
