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.
