We booked a family room for a 1 night stay at the gilson hotel on 12th august 2013 , bit dubious about some of the reviews about it but we went ahead and booked it , so wish we had never !...Day started off good as we arrived early and the room was ready so we could go straight up with our bags , the hotel looks good in the lobby , the bar and breakfast area were nice and clean .The room (132) was really shabby , stains running down the wall , the base of one of the double beds was absolutely filthy and the floorboards wow !!! never heard a floor make so much noise ..into the bathroom , nice big window , no blind or curtain then pulled the shower curtain back and the baths enamel was getting covered in rust spots ( totally unacceptable ) kids wanted a bath but had to do with a shower of a trickle of luke warm running water .We turned in for the night about midnight after a few drinks in the bar which we enjoyed , then at 12-30 the noise was unbelievable , people running about in the room above us the floorboards bang bang bang , this went on until 4 am ...I don't think it was guests in the upstairs room , it was either staff or family of the owners of the hotel. we got to sleep after 4am and it started all over again at 6am .Went down to breakfast totally shattered after 8am and greeted by a silent waitress , didn't even speak just wanted us to eat our food and go so she could tidy our table up and get finished .Went down to check out and waited 15 minutes at the desk , constantly ringing the bell still no one came so we left the key behind the desk and left for home , drained and shattered ...go back to hull ? deffo ....back to this hotel ...never . In my honest opinion this hotel is no more than a overnight doss house for passing through workmen.
