I stayed here for 1 night in October on a business trip. It is a budget hotel and just qualifies at 3 stars. Facilities were adequate and food options reasonable. Room at the front of the hotel was large but very basic OK for an overnight stop only

I was quite impressed for a budget hotel - it didn't cost the earth and was in a nice central location and easily walkable into the city centre. Very clean and helpful, and friendly staff. The bar was very handy; it was made throughout the night, when we fancied a tipple when we came back from the rugby. Very pleased...

I and my wife made the mistake of staying here and having a genuine reason to complain, wrote to the ‘manager’ who doesn’t seem to exist. Have called several times to try and come to some arrangement but anyone senior hides behind inexperienced reception staff. I wouldn’t stay in this hotel again if it was free and if you’re considering...

So I stayed here on 15th October with my boyfriend, seemed okay when we checked in. However, we came back to the hotel at around 10.45pm to be greeted with blaring music and singing from the function room directly below our room. I called down to reception at 11.15 who told me it would be shut off at 12am and...

A no frills budget hotel located beside the train station and only a short walk from the city centre. It is a little worn in places but is clean and tidy throughout. The rooms are basic but functional. The staff were professional and helpful. It's all I needed for a short stay in Hull, basically somewhere to shower and sleep....
