My husband and I stayed here for one night (Marine View room) on Thursday. The hotel is really nicely refurbished and the rooms are fantastic. They are just as cheap as the Holiday Inn, over the road, but are far, far superior. It was nice to stay in a proper place, rather than a boring chain hotel. The location is perfect for the best of Hull; the marina (have a drink in the Minerva), the Deep (absolutely brilliant!!!), the old town (10 mins walk to some old, historical pubs like the Lion and Key or Ye Old White Hart) and the shops and museums.
The only slight disappointment was the help-yourself-continental-buffet-breakfast. However, this was my fault for not looking into this first, and actually it is fine. I would recommend "Thieving Harry's" set with a view of the dock in the fruit market (on the marina) if you really want a bacon earnie or nice cup of coffee.
My parents also stayed here with us (Emerald Room). We all agreed that we would return to this hotel again as it was so delightful. Highly recommended.
