Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Caroboe Clean and comfortable
Checking in was quick and the staff were all very pleasant and helpful.
We had booked online but were offered a choice of floor and whether we wanted to be at the front or back. Guess the front would have the better view but the back was soooo quiet!
Good choice for breakfast.
Was great to be able to leave the car and walk everywhere.
Love Hull - it deserves to become a city of culture.
Great concert from Hull Philharmonic and visit to Ferens Art Gallery.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bacx Very poor experience
There was a loud repetitive knocking noise in my room all night and as the hotel was full, there was no other room to move into. The night receptionist was unable to help and did not even mention the possibility of any compensation. Furthermore, the telephone in my room did not work and the shower gel holder was full of mould. An altogether extremely disappointing stay. Definitely NOT up to the normal level of HI Express that I have come to expect.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Single Beds - Not so good!
I travelled up from London for a 2 nights stay and when i arrived i was put in a room with 2 single beds.
which i wasn’t even advised at the reception when i checked in, only to find out when i got to my room.
i called reception, they said that all the rooms in the hotel were booked that night and they couldn’t do anything for me.
So fair enough, i thought, it’s not a big deal until i went to sleep on one of the single beds.
VERY uncomfortable and every time i turned the bed would move, it seemed like 2 foldable single beds in my room.
i complained to reception and they didn’t and couldn’t do anything about it.
i should have been offered some points at least on my membership as an apology. but i got nothing!
It was clean room and warm. but wouldn’t want to be sleeping on a single bed again! Lucky i didn’t bring my wife with me this time i went on business!

Room was clean and comfortable. Staff behind the front desk were always very pleasant and helpful, especially with details of the car park and in extending our stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor to cultural hull PLEASANT STAY
PLUS : WE WERE GREETED BY A FRIENDLY YOUNG LADY ON THE DESK WHO EXPLAINED THE PARKING PROCEDURES TO US AND TIMES OF BREAKFAST ETC.
WE HAVE STAYED A FEW TIMES BEFORE AND ON THIS OCCASION WE NOTICED THE TABLES WERE CLEARED QUICKLY AND THE RESTAURANT STAFF WERE MORE VISIBLE. THE HOTEL WAS VERY BUSY AS STUDENTS WERE GRADUATING AND MORE SEATING WAS AVAILABLE IF REQUIRED.
MINUS: THE PLATES FOR THE HOT FOOD ARE ALWAYS COLD AT THIS HOTEL. I HAVE RAISED THIS MATTER SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE BUT THE ISSUE HAS NEVER BEEN RESOLVED OR INDEED AN EXPLANATION GIVEN AS TO WHY THIS IS!!. WHY PRESENT HOT FOOD AND LEAVE COLD PLATES?? OUR GRANDSON. AGED 7, WAS STAYING WITH US AND YET THERE WAS ONLY 2 CUPS IN THE ROOM. I HAVE RAISED THIS BEFORE AND THE MANAGERESS APOLOGISED. IF YOU KNOW 3 PEOPLE ARE IN THE ROOM WHY PROVIDE CUPS ETC FOR 2??

Lets be honest, Hull isn't the most exciting place to stay, but the hotel staff and overall hotel experience made a pleasant overnight business stop. Would happily stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BA319131 Bypass the street lobby!
I've stayed at this hotel on 3 occasions and will stay again, there is an excellent curry house near by!
The rooms are always clean and tidy, staff friendly too. The only gripe is the strong smell of urine from the ground floor street entrance, it can be smelt as high up as the 4th floor stairwell, quite nasty.
That aside, no issues.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cobygrace Not one to visit again
Only 1 member of staff to man reception and bar , no first aid kit in hotel when we asked for one at reception ! Very poor !!
Resturant shut as hotel quiet. !
No tv signal as Ariel had blown down 4 days b4 we arrived !
Best part of visit was cleanliness of rooms !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yorkie The hotel continues to maintain a high standard
Stayed over Christmas, Excellent customer service from all hotel staff. Choice and quality of food for breakfast very good.
Hotel fails to get 5 stars for overall experience due to lack of luggage trolley and restaurant being closed in the evenings.
I know the hotel does not offer porter service but I am sure guests would not object to using a luggage trolley themselves when they are travelling with a lot of luggage.
Use Holiday Inn Express throughout the UK and this one is amongst the best 1 or 2 I stay at.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dan5487 Great location - pretty much all you need.
Very happy with the hotel. Stayed 23rd-27th December whilst visiting family in Hull for Christmas.
Location wise it is superb, right next to a shopping centre and just a couple of minutes walk from the bus/train station.
Room was fine, a couple of things could be added (a fridge or cooler, a safe, extractor fan in the bathroom).
Breakfast is limited, but not much room for complaint since it is included with the booking and no extra cost.
Not a hotel I would recommend for a holiday (then again I would not recommend Hull for a holiday!) but perfect for somewhere for a night or 2 if in Hull for business or visiting family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Allisoc1 Central location, comfortable and decent price
Have stayed here three times, as it's often cheaper than a taxi! It's always clean, consistently comfortable rooms and includes breakfast, making a night out into a special weekend. Staff not quite as welcoming on this occassion (usually very friendly) but wouldn't put me off staying again. Nice and quiet if you choose to overlook the car park

My two children and I enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff were extremelly friendly and helpful and the hotel's facilities are ideal for disabled customers as it is also close to the centre of town.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lou104 Terrible for parking but clean hotel
The parking here is terrible, at any other holiday inn you would get free parking. Although they state it will only cost £7.00 for 24 hrs that is if you car stays there throughout. We used the hotel as a base but were traveling around hull so as well as the £7.00 payed also other times when needed to leave. Also got there on Saturday in dec so struggled for parking place and that was after we struggled to find entrance to car park.
Hotel clean, staff helpful when asked but did not go out of their way to help. For example nobody told us how to use the lift (like we should know you put your room card in then press your floor). Mirrors not conveniently placed near plug socket for straightening hair.
Would not stay here again mainly because of parking/ location.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Denni70 Comfortable room - staff very friendly and helpful
Enjoyed our stay but feel that the hotel should come to a better understanding with the owners of St Stephens Car Park with regard to parking. Our card for the car park should have been sorted on the day we arrived (Saturday evening) when we were quite willing to pay for the cost of this without having to use the machines to allow us to exit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by doniowl Trouble free night
Myself and partner thoroughly enjoyed our stay,the helpful receptionist and the immediate payment of the car park fee helped as we did not want to keep troubling reception(we payed upon check in).
The room was good size with plenty of space for our cases and we weren`t falling over each other in the room.
No noise disturbing our sleep from other guests.
The buffet style breakfast was adequate but limited,we had the sausages,scrambled eggs,beans and toast with plenty of coffee and juice available and enough seating to accommodate all guests.
Will stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Diane94 Great weekend!!
This hotel was so central to everything, next door almost to the train station and shopping centre. The staff were fantastic and very accomodating. Our rooms were ready on arrival at 12 and when we checked out our we could leave our cases until our train was due. One of the things I would have liked would have been more of a hot choice at breakfast rather than just scrambled egg, sausage and beans, we found it so strange that bacon wasnt served! This was only a small gripe though as the rest of the choice was fab. This hotel was excellent value for money and we would definately use it again if we were in Hull again. My only other suggestion would be that the staff should have informed the guests that the two minutes silence was going to be observed as two male guests chatted throughout even though the rest of the restuarant were silent. These gentlemen were English and there was a tv at both ends of the room showing the rememberance service. Even a stony glare didnt stop them but I think a member of staff should had approached everybody or announced the two minute silence prior to the event as I think all hotels should observe this.

This is a great hotel for the city centre. Its really good value for money, is clean, quiet at night and has easy parking (multi-storey secure parking). The selection offered at breakfast is better than most other similar hotels. I have used this hotel several times and will continue to do so when I need to visit Hull.

Breakfast was plentiful choice cereal, continental ,cooked breakfast but not full! Would definitely stay again!
