The Bull Hotel is very central and the perfect place from which to visit the fantastic cathedral; I was there on my bicycle and the staff could not have been more helpful in looking after it safely and retrieving it for me in the morning. The Bull is a welcome relief after the Peterborough streets and the lobby has some... More

After staying on the Peel Hotel offer last year at Wallingford which we thought was excellent we again booked the deal for 12 of us to stay at The Bull . The rooms were clean spacious ,which was the highlight of the hotel. The meals were distinctly average, and breakfast was a shambles with long queues when waiting for cooked... More

PeteandJen, Imagine my surprise when I read this review, which is a carbon copy of the one you originally posted on the 16th January, which upon my request has been taken down by Tripadvisor. I did not respond to the original as your comments were sensational in their content and do not in any way mirror the comments and experiences... More

Dear Carole W, Thank you for your very kind review, I am very pleased that you had a good stay with us. It can sometimes be challenging keeping street noise at night to a minimum, and despite the best efforts of our night team there could be someone who might disturb your peace. I do hope that this isolated occurrence... More

This was my first visit to this hotel, I was staying here on business and chose this hotel as an alternative to the blandness of Premier Inn (OK, they're good at what they do but you get a bit bored after a while!). First impressions were good, the staff were friendly & efficient and I thought decor was tasteful and... More

No signage to say what is and isn't available, ramp up to double doors then loads of steps - it would seem that you only have to ask for assistance but if you are on your own how are you supposed to do that - and no mention of who and how. Very patronizing staff - all in all I... More

Dear JCR500, I was very disappointed to read your review. As you are aware we are a very old building, and one that has been sympathetically restored during our ownership of it. In addition to this we have listed status for the front of the building which does sometime rather complicate matters. We take our responsibility to make "reasonable adjustments"... More

I have stayed in this hotel over 10 times now over the last 3 months. I'm very pleased to say the hotel is really great and from start to finish has been a joy to stay. I have stayed in various rooms but they have all been great and consistent (so your not playing Russian roulette with rooms) The front... More

The two good things about the Bull is its location, central to shops and amenities, and the breakfast - superb. The car park was useful - although not a lot of room to negotiate the exit when full. Not a lot else to say apart from to mention the lovely Carrera on reception, whose smile lights up your day. I... More

Gillian N, Thank you for your review, and your positive comments regarding the quality of our breakfast and also Carrera who I know is a credit to our hotel. I am not too sure what you mean about the car parking area being tight if full, this is not something that has been mentioned before and is not a typical... More

For the fifth consecutive year my wife and I have stayed at the Bull Hotel whilst visiting the festival of antiques at the nearby showground.

Very pleased with the hotel, service and location. Lows: poor Wi-Fi, fire escape open allowing insecure access, room was often a little too warm, maid insisting we were only booked in the one night (computer error) and the restaurant prices (including breakfast) ensured we ate elsewhere. Otherwise, lovely hotel, and wouldn't look to stay anywhere else on a visit to... More

I'm often in Peterborough and after having tested several hotel I decided this is the one I will stay also for the future. Located in the center of the city is walking distance from restaurants and easy to find by car nice parking (to tell the truth parkins entrance is a kind of hidden). Spacious Room for a 2-3 night...
