A good value alternative to the typical chain hotel. This guest house is situated on the outskirts of Hull in a pleasant residential area. Ample parking at the front of the property, and there is a bus stop right outside with frequent services into the City. It is conveniently situated for anybody visiting the University. My room(3) was at the back and therefore pretty quiet, with a view over the garden - pity I only saw it on a wet November morning, I'm sure it is very attractive in the summer. The room itself was of a decent size with plenty of facilities. There is even a microwave for those wanting to bring in an evening take away although as I ate out that night I did not use it. Bathroom very clean, no bath but decent shower. Good selection of towels and toiletries provided. Although I prefer a double bed, I found the single perfectly comfortable and got a good night's sleep.. The breakfast room is pleasant and also overlooks the garden, There is a good choice of cereals, yogurts etc available to help yourself to and the owner will prepare a cooked breakfast to order, which should set you up for the day. A nice touch is the complementary fruit bowl in the hall. Obviously, unlike a hotel, you need to let yourself back in later in the evening, and those with less than perfect eyesight might find the combination security lock a bit fiddly in the dark, it may help to carry a torch. Like 99Rita, I did not have any issue with the dogs, most of the time you would hardly know they were there. The impression I gained was that the owners work hard to provide guests with a pleasant experience and I wish them well for the future. Would certainly return if I am again in the area.
