“Cheap, cheerful, convenient”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Arrived by train and checked in early. Woman at reception was really helpful and sympathetic. I was visiting Hull with my 91 year old mother to attend a funeral. Thanks to an early check in we were able to leave bags and freshen up before we went. Room was clean, well furnished with toiletries and great towels. Breakfast next day was buffet service with everything you could possibly want. Amazing value for the price we paid. Historic building with great local connections. Met my mother's old friends in the bar in the evening - very comfortable and civilized.

Room Tip: We asked for and got a room with grab rails in the bathroom for my mother who is frail, she was so p...

Arrived after 4 hour drive to find the car park full - they had an evening seminar on and the seminar guests had filled the car park. 20 minutes after arriving we were checked in, with one of the rooms we were allocated already being occupied! After the debacle of returning to reception we were given another room. Both rooms generally tired.

Went to bar for evening meal and (in fairness to the few staff around) had to wait 10 minutes to get a drink. Evening food was OK.

Breakfast was very poor, little choice of second rate food and did not feel like the locally sourced produce they say.

Also used the gym but it is hardly next door. The gym is pretty good but it is across the road from the hotel.

Definitely better places for the money.

Room Tip: Try a different hotel!

Turned up to the hotel to find that there was no parking because of an function on at the hotel. Then only one member of staff at check in who was not able to check people in efficiently, taking over 30mins to check in. Then after this ordeal go to my room to then find that I have been given the wrong key and entered someone else's room with them in it. The cleanliness of the rooms were poor too with hairs in the bathroom and on some surfaces. The bed was below par too, not being very comfortable. Then the breakfast in the morning was not what it is advertised to be, claiming to be locally produced tasted like frozen food. Also to add to insult the staff at breakfast were rather rude too. Wished we stayed at the holiday inn down the road. I would avoid staying here in the future unless you are a fan on 1980's hotels.

Good Price, Ideal loction, Staff on the whole very good. Spoiled slightly by the very rude portly woman at reception who would not retrieve our left luggage as she was 'busy' on the phone to her friend an episode which then almost resulted in us missing our train.

Very clean, staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Receptionist on until 11pm 1st March was very very helpful, it makes such a huge difference. Beautiful building with plenty of character. Free wifi, toiletries, tea/coffee etc, very clean and tidy. No noise at all. Bed not too comfortable, but that's a very personal thing. I would recommend and will return in July with family for our sons Graduation. (if the prices are not raised for this occasion)...... For history fans, our own Queen Victoria actually stayed in a suite here in 1800s!

Spent 4 nights here from 20 February. We had a great room and had an excellent breakfast of porridge and a vegetarian omelette cooked by the breakfast chef Margaret. Abby handled the booking and processing brilliantly. In summary, we had a very relaxing and enjoyable break and will visit again .

Stayed for 2 nights on an all inclusive break with friends. Early check in and late check out were included as part of the deal and we had free room upgrades. Room was spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean.
We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel on both days. Breakfast was a buffet, plenty of choice and eggs were cooked to order and brought to your table. The dinners were excellent. Plenty of choice on the menu with 'daily specials'. Food was well presented and exceeded our expectations.
All the staff were friendly and helpful.
We all enjoyed our stay in Hull and would return to this hotel.
