“Very enjoyable!!”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Myself and my partner stayed for 2 nights, 29th and 30th november, 2013. Our daughter and her boyfriend also came, they had stayed here about 3 weeks earlier and recommended it to us.
They were in the marine view room, we should have been in the emerald room but as soon as the management knew that our stay was an early christmas present from our daughter they immediately upgraded us to the master suite! The room was lovely with black gloss furniture and a four poster bed. Everything in the room was black, white, silver and grey with beautiful blinds and curtains. There were tea and coffee making facilities, a bottle of water, biscuits and even a jar of sweets. The bathroom was lovely with a deep bath with shower taps, toiletries and robes provided. Everything within the suite was spotlessly clean.

We thought that the breakfast provided (on a dresser on landing just outside door) was more than ample to our needs. There were cereals, biscuits, breakfast bars, fresh fruit, yoghurts, pastries, chocolate wafers, tea, coffee and juice.

Shopping centres, bars, restaurants and "the Deep" all within a short walking distance.

On the first night we ate at the hotel, we all had the homemade steak pie which was very nice.
Our daughter surprised us the second night with a christmas fayre meal at The Deep which we thoroughly enjoyed.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Whittington and Cat and the surrounding area and would certainly stay again.

kind regards
Baslady

A largely unsupportive, unwelcoming stay for a regular solo traveller.

No books to read.
I was declined a polite request to take their food into my room. It arrived ten minutes late and was the wrong order.
Bar was empty at 9.30pm on a Saturday night.
No toaster or cooked breakfast option.
Morrision's own brand yoghurts and pre-packaged pastries.
No toilet roll holder.
Exposed screw-heads and plaster on curtain rails.
A63 intolerable.

Bed was comfy.

We arrived quite late and had booked the four poster room, the host was lovely and the room was immaculate. The four poster bed was so comfy and the room was better than most five stars we have stayed in, if I'm ever back in hull will defiantly stay again! Host was lovely and very accommodating...just wish there was a full cooked breakfast on offer...but given the room and the high standard of the en suite we were more than happy with the price we paid. Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Next time we will ask to stay in the top floor room, we over heard someone saying it was a fab room!

Really really nice place to stay, don't be put off by the local shops as this is just bad planning. The pub itself is your standard drinking pub with good pub food, the rooms are fantastic and very we'll presented, you have access to fruit, cereal, biscuits and croissants etc with fruit juice and all sorts of hot drinks so can have your breakfast any time you wish. Great base to stay either for business or short breaks.

Looking for somewhere to base yourself that is central to Hull and surrounding areas? This is the place you want to go for. Michelle and the team are very welcoming, nothing is too much trouble, the pub has just been decorated too and the rooms (we stayed in the Master Suite) are lovely and for the price you pay, try and find better.

Room Tip: Spend a little more and go for the master suite ;-)

Only spent 1 night here but loved it ( pukka guiness )
Was here for my daughters graduation from Hull Uni, checked in with a really lovely pleaseant lady, and there was a ladies dart match in the pub that night. ( plenty of tattoos :)
Room was very very comfortable and would recommend it to anyone on a short stay in Hull

stayed one night in hull at the Whittington & Cat. Good location, near marina and town. We went to Princes Avenue for dinner and taxi was £4. Arrived after 2pm and pub was shut, you have to ring the door bell and the housekeeper came down to open the door for us. Lovely friendly welcome & everything was explained nicely. We stayed in the capaccino room which was fairly small but nicely decorated. Nice touches included, bottled water & chocolate in the room. Breakfast is fairly basic and help yourself on the landing but nice to be included in price. The one downside of the room was the lack of plugs. We wanted to plug in the laptop and phone which meant we had to unplug the bedside lamps. Hairdryer available but the only place to plug it in was by the side of the bed and therefore you could not use the mirror on the wall by the door to see what you were doing. Overall a good location & pleasant room for the price.
