We had a comfortable stay at the Gilson Hotel which is very conveniently located in the centre of Hull just 3 minutes' walk from the Bus and Rail Interchange. The room was comfortable and clean and the price charged for it was very fair and reasonable. The shower and toilet were clean and fresh with plenty of hot water. The wifi in my room was very good. Staff we met were polite and welcoming.

For a fairly cheap hotel centrally situated in the city centre we were impressed. Both the guys on reception during our stay were very friendly and efficient and a credit to the hotel. The room was a good size clean enough with good facilities. Even though we were facing the busy dual carriageway once the windows were closed the room was in silence. One minor exception was that they had to close the restaurant during our stay due to staff problems. To be fair this is not unusual at the moment with Covid taking it's toll. We were refunded by credit card immediately for the breakfast we did not get and used that for a excellent one at the Wetherspoons opposite :-)

Great budget hotel, centrally located, with bars/restaurant on site. Next door to the railway station in the heart of the town centre. After reading previous reviews we were concerned about cleanliness however we were pleasantly surprised to find our room was really clean, bed linens were good quality and bathroom was freshly done ready for our stay. The hotel looked after our luggage because we arrived early and we headed out for a walk around the town. On return check in was seamless, information was given as needed and we were invited back to reception if there were any issues. (There weren’t any) Our room was dual aspect so well ventilated with opening windows, super king size bed, desk, tv etc As a frequent traveller this is a good standard of budget hotel and yes it’s a little dated in places, a bit worn if you are looking to criticise it but it’s a honest budget hotel, centrally located that offers food and drinks (also budget prices) with a large outdoor seating area

Staff were very helpful and friendly. Good location with cheap overnight parking nearby next to bonus areana £3 for 24hrs. In need of an external and internal renovation but for price paid at time was OK for our needs. Needs to have more ironing facilities to help guests.
