Premier Inn Hull City Centre Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 December 2010

Hull is such an easy target for critics, so it's very refreshing to find a hotel that really pulls out the stops and bucks the trend. The Premier Inn is a new, budget hotel very close to all the city centre amenities. Its rooms are bright, spacious and comfortable. Staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. We did not eat there so cannot comment on the quality of food, but I've no reason to believe it would be anything but a good standard. Very little noise from guests in other rooms. Both corridors and rooms are well carpetted, which cushions any noise. A bit of noise from the busy dual carriageway near the hotel, but nothing to stop you sleeping. Would definitely use again. Highly recommended - give it a try!

This Premier Inn is newly built and unusual in that it is a tall building. It is situated in central Hull, alongside the A63 which is a busy dual carriageway. There are six floors of multi storey car-parking with reception being on the seventh floor. The bedroom floors are level seven and above, so all bedrooms and public rooms have a good view of either Hull City Centre, the River Hull or the Hull Estuary and Bridge.

Once you have found a car-parking space, there are two lifts to access Reception. We needed disabled car-parking and were mostly lucky enough to obtain a space opposite the lifts, even when we went out daily and returned later. But there are only three spaces so others weren't so lucky and once we had to park in a normal space and this made it very difficult. This could be a problem for other disabled users in busy times. However, only car park level one was available in October, the other floors being closed off by gates, so there may be more spaces available on each floor at busier times.

The restaurant, bar/lounge and IT area are on the seventh floor and are modern, spacious and comfortable, with great views all round. The restaurant serves a good selection of pub type food and prices seemed reasonable to us. A buffet style breakfast is served daily in the restaurant, is varied, of good quality and the fresh coffee is particularly good. You can choose between Continental or Full Breakfast but the choice available is limited, is identical every day, so by day three we were quite bored with it.

The Premier Inn staff are excellent, very helpful, friendly, courteous and efficient. Being light sleepers we found the first room offered to us very noisy (A63 noise) so we asked to change. This was no problem for the staff and we were shown a selection of available rooms further from the road. Unfortunately we later found the room we chose to have a problem with the heating but again this was quickly sorted out by the handyman. I am afraid that after our first night we also found our bed to be extremely hard. But again, after a word with the staff , as there were no alternative mattresses they kindly put an extra duvet under the bottom sheet. This wasn't ideal but did help a little.

All in all this hotel was good value for money, (exceptional value if you can get some of the £29 rooms!). It has competent and caring staff, interesting views, it is easy to find, it is adjacent to the Deep (which is great for families on holiday) and is in an ideal location for everything in and around Hull. The downsides are that it is surrounded by busy roads, is in an area currently under redevelopment , and the beds are very firm.

I stayed here for one night on business. I arrived before two o'clock which is check in time and the staff rallied around to try to get my room ready early. All the staff I met were friendly, helpful and very professional. I ate in my evening meal in the restaurant and it was delicious and I consider it to be reasonably priced. The room was lovely, modern and clean. My only criticism is that the shower could have been slightly warmer (But i think it is on a thermostat for safety)

A good quality budget price hotel close to the city centre. We paid £29 per night so to pick faults for that price seems poor form.

The room was very large, spacious and comfortable. The bed was large and comfortable with crisp clean linen. The bathroom was also large and well stocked. We had a great view out over the estuary from the big windows. Television was large and had a good selection of channels. There was also plenty of tea and coffee.

The breakfast was not included in the price and I think it would have been better to have found breakfast away from the hotel. There was nothing wrong with it, just expected more for the price. The bar was good but again was expensive. We eat out in the evening but the menu looked pretty good if on the expensive side

There is ample secure free parking on site and the hotel is well placed for the Deep and the city centre.
This is one of the better premier inns I have stayed in and would happily visit again and encourage others to do likewise.

Very decent budget class hotel with good facilities in an excellent location near the historic Old Town and dockyard area. Ample free parking is available on site with barrier entry and code required for exit. Reception is on the 6th floor where staff are friendly and efficient. Some fantastic views are possible on the higher floors towards the river Humber and city centre. Rooms are warm, comfortable and modern with the expected facilities including tea and coffee. The city centre is a few minutes walk over the canal via one of the swing bridges depending on which part of town you want to be in. We paid £56 for a room which is acceptable. I am yet to find one of the elusive £29 a room Premier Inn deals which are like looking for a needle in a haystack. Would definitely stay here again if ever in Hull.

I'm a Premier Inn regular - always good value and decent facilities - but this one is exceptional. It has a good location and, being in a tower above a new car park has great views over the city and the river. The restaurant is good for a budget hotel and also has great views. Also easy to walk to The Deep and over the footbridge to the old ferry port, marina and Old Town pubs.

Would be nit picking to find any faults for this hotel. The only one i can say is the extra £2 i had to pay for using my credit card to book my room. But for the price of £38 it is still an absolute bargain.

Location is near a fairly busy road overlooking a fantastic view of The Humber, with rooms on the 7th floor and above you won't fail to get a view. The Deep aquarium is just a 5 min walk away from the hotel.

Staff looked happy and the thus the service i got back was excellent.

Restaurant is on the 7th floor, again with panoramic views. I only had the breakfast but what was there looked good and there was plenty of it.

Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
