“More of a Hostel than Hotel”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

I don't really how know to describe the Endsligh Centre. On one hand it is a magical place, a real gem. On the other old fashioned, a bit worn and lacking some privacy. I found the centre by accident via a B&B search in Hull on Goggle as the Travelodge was too expensive due to my trip being short notice.

The Endsleigh Centre was originally built as a retreat for nuns and ladies of the Catholic
cloth but with the reduction in their numbers they have opened the centre for B&B's and other functions such Weddings etc. This does mean that you can't turn around without seeing a hundred and one Catholic symbols, pictures and artefacts. This can be a bit off putting to a single male traveller but the ladies especially Sister Catherine in normal clothing do give you a nice warm welcome and look after you very well.

The centre is located towards top of Hull on Beverley road making it easy access for the University and a bus ride from the centre. Another good bonus is there is plenty of free parking. There also extensive grounds and picnic table to sit outside on a nice evening or during the day.

My room was a disabled double room on the 2nd floor with a wet area in the en-suite for the shower. The bed and bedding was excellent with modern double glazing. However the chrome work in the bathroom and some of the furiture had seen better days but everthing was clean. The TV is new and there is free wifi. Not all rooms are en-suite so when booking be aware. The price is of course cheaper for the shared facilities rooms. There is noise from other occupants opening doors and when I stayed kids running down the corridors. The noise that made my room unique is it was right next to the clock bell. Therefore every hour between 8am and 9pm my room shock with the chimes, not unbearable but it did prevent an afternoon nap.

Breakfast was a very good cold breakfast, fresh and tinned fruit in the fridge and plenty of cereals, toast etc. It is a do it yourself buffet style including clearing your table.

In summary I would describe the Endsleigh Centre as more of a hostel than hotel and as long as you remember that you will have enjoyable stay in a interesting unique environment with a warm welcome and good valve for money.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a family celebration we had in the centre. It is a beautiful old building which was a convent but now operates as a centre which hosts functions, conferences, meetings and is a B&B. The grounds are lovely and the rooms very well kept with some having ensuites and others shared bathrooms. The day after our function we took a drive to York which is a lovely town within an hour's drive. We had a great time here with very nice food and the staff (many of them volunteers) were excellent. Thanks to Sr. Catherine and all who run the centre for a great celebration and stay.

This amazing place was a gem hidden away in the middle of a large boisterous city, the accomadation was exceptionally clean, with little quirks that only added to its charm, Sister Catherine and her merry band are such delightful ladies and I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Endsleigh was a convent and a school, and now operates as a centre which hosts functions and conferences, and a B&B. The building is quite something! It continues to be run by the sisters. As an atheist, I felt very welcome here, and found it to be very quiet and well-equipped. If you are looking for accommodation near the university, this is ideal - less than 10 minutes walk from the main campus and cheap, with plenty of restaurants/pubs/shops/takeaways nearby. Everything else I could find looked a bit rough around the edges or was much more money for a night's stay. The room I stayed in was single en-suite, and was perfectly adequate - for 32.50 I wouldn't expect luxury, just somewhere clean, comfortable and quiet. It's all very basic, but there's nothing wrong with any of it. The free wi-fi and TV in the room were an unexpected bonus, as was the kitchen down the corridor for guests - you can bring your own food and cook it there, if you want to keep costs down. Breakfast was simple but sufficient - you help yourself to cereal, milk, juice or hot drinks, toast, jams and fruit. It's very relaxed, there's no need to worry that it will be stuffy or...well, like sleeping in a convent! I've stayed in B&Bs and paid much more for a similar standard of accommodation but with less peace and quiet! I imagine this wouldn't suit if you were having a big night out in Hull, but for those staying for work and wanting somewhere convenient, comfortable and cheap, I'd recommend it. I'll certainly be staying there again.

Room Tip: There are limited en-suite rooms, but the shared bathrooms looked fine to me if you can't get on...
