#1 of 10 hotels in Grimsby
Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
This Wetherspoon hotel was purpose-built in the mid 19th century to serve Grimsby's first railway. The hotel took its name from the earl of Yarborough, who was a director of the railway company and lived at nearby Brocklesby. The Yarborough was later owned by another railway company and, eventually, by the LNER. After the Second World War, the British Transport Commission owned it. In 1951, it was bought by a brewery from Hull. In 1960, it was nearly demolished. The hotel, which is a symbol of the town's transition from an 18th-century fishing village into a great Victorian port, is now a listed building. It closed down as a hotel post war but remained a pub and in 1997 it opened as a wWtherspoon pub and restaurant. Most recently in November 2016 Wetherspoon decided to open the hotel again and it has had a major refurbishment into a 36 bedroom hotel. Some of the old features remain including the amazing ballroom which now houses the ladies toilets for the restaurant and bar. Grimsby is known for its lively community, and the town accommodates many bars and night clubs. As The Yarborough Hotel is situated in the town centre, it is occasionally possible to hear music in the hotel from these venues (particularly on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights). If you prefer a quieter room, please book with the hotel directly, over the telephone, and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Stayed here one night. Bed excellent but wash hand basin too small to fill kettle. Also there were insufficient surfaces to put things like towel and washbag. Wifi seemed flaky. Efficient check-in/out

Decent hotel located right next to the station in Grimsby. It's modern and comfortable, located in an old hotel building that has been tastefully restored. The room that I had was larger than your average hotel room and tastefully decorated. Food and beer are just a short

OMG where to begin. A hotel in a town centre right above a nightclub (oh and another one 30 ft over the road). 4/4 time bass until 2 in the morning, a nice noisy taxi rank just outside, drunken revellers shouting and hooting till 4:45 (but hey, at least I was awake for the

Good Evening Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at The Yarborough Hotel. I am sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience during your stay with us. Due to our location in the town centre at weekends we do suffer some noise pollution from the neighbouring bars. We appreciate a good nights sleep is very important to our guests and we do try to make guests as aware about the noise as we possibly can on our website and all third party booking sites and do request that guests call us directly to see if we can allocate them a quiet room. Customer feedback is very important to us so thank you again for your comments, please accept our sincere apologies and please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss your stay further.
