Very tired hotel!
Maybe could do with complete overhaul, rooms are dingy in need of decorating, beds uncomfortable but mattress was clean, bed base leaves alot to be desired. I suppose you get what you pay for to be fair.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

This is not the Ritz it's cheap and basic but the room I stayed in was dirty and shabby the shower was faulty and a musky damp smell in the room. For the continental breakfast do not expect fruit salad croissants and Danish pastries just hot a drink and toast cereal. Good points the Internet was good and free, the bed clean and comfortable and free car parking. The staff were pleasant but the hotel needs serious investment it was a trip back to the seventies.

Room Tip: Not for a romantic weekend but ok wash and sleep

Dear Steve,

Thank you for taking the time to review our property.

I do agree with the fact that some of our rooms are slightly tired and the price certainly reflects on this but rest assured that a refurbishment plan has been already prepared and will soon take place.

I am glad to read that you have anyway enjoyed your stay with us and I will pass your positive comments to all members of staff working here at Gilson.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back here and I hope to be able to personally introduce you to one of our newly refurbished rooms on your next trip to Hull.

Kind Regards
Pannu M.

Efficient check in, clean tidy room and for only thirty pounds a night. Yes, there were slight issues, but not even worth discussing for the price. Would have no problems whatsoever recommending this hotel to anyone looking for a couple of nights on a budget.

A group of four of us stayed at the Gilson as we were watching a football match. The location was perfect for us as very central and can walk into town and the KC stadium. The rooms were clean but basic. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and the bar area was great with sky and pool. The breakfast was really nice and perfect before the long trip back. All in all the Gilson was great value for money and we would definately come back if we were going to another game and need cheap accomodation.

After a bad non-start check;in with another hotel, we were left without anywhere to stay. The ladies in tourist information sent us here. When we arrived, they had phoned them in advance to let them know we were on our way. The lad on the desk was lovely, very smiley and helpful. We got to our room and were very impressed at the size of it, we were expecting a bed and ensuite, we got a little mini living room, a separate bedroom and a bathroom so were pleased with the size. There was a small issue with the bathroom taps being slightly dodgy but when we told them about it they were very apologetic and assured us they'd get it looked at promptly. Would definately stay again, especially if Lewis, the friendly lad who checked us in is there!

I had a meeting in Hull first thing on Monday, and decided to drive down the night before. I was looking for somewhere very cheap, and the Gilson was the best deal on laterooms.com. The location is perfect - 2 minutes from the train station and the main part of the city. I had very low expectations because of the price, but it was fine - staff were helpful, room was clean and a reasonable size, breakfast was nice. The hotel website stresses that the free parking is first come, first served, and I can imagine it fills quickly.
