Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carolyn59 Break with parents !!
What wonderful staff you have, so friendly and helpful, room was only squashed due to having a double sofa bed put up for me as sharing with my parents, if not the room would have been very comfortable..
I would like to say how the staff go to over and above what they need to do, especially Simon, Dave and his colleague who had to put up with me in the early hours of the morning due to my bad back and letting me drink tea!!!
All in all we were all really pleased and great value for money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YADU GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY, COMFORTABLE BED, GOOD SERVICE, EXCELLENT BREAKFAST CHOICES I HAVE EVER SEEN
STAY WAS REALLY GOOD, I ENJOYED THE STAY WITH THIS HOTEL. EVERYTHING WAS GOOD, I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO COMPLAIN EXCEPT THE WATER KETTLE WHICH WAS REALLY RUSTY AND LOOKS LIKE IT WAS NOT AT ALL MAINTAINED BY THE STAFF (MAY BE BECAUSE NOBODY BOTHER TO USE THIS SINCE THE HOTEL ITSELF IS PROVIDING THE VARIETY OF BREAKFAST CHOICES WITHIN THE HOTEL?). HOWEVER, PLEASE CONSIDER LOOKING INTO THIS. APART FROM THIS, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT, REAL VALUE FOR MONEY, VERY GOOD LOCATION BEING SHOPPING MALL NEXT TO THE HOTEL. I REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO BOOKING THIS DURING MY NEXT TRIP.

Fantastic service from the moment we arrived until we left. Linas was exceptional and deserves a special thank you. The accommodation was excellent, the sofabed had been made up prior to arrival for our children which was brilliant and saved us having to do it with 2 very tired children at our heels. The food we ordered was superb and very reasonably priced, compliments to the chef. All in all a great experience, we will definitely be returning. Thank you again to the whole team.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Loonyquirky Cheap but great
Check in was quick, room was spotless and well appointed. Could have done with a mirror near the dressing table but only a minor quibble. Shower was awesome. Bar was pricy. Breakfast was good, eggs looked questionable so I bypassed them. Don't know what happens to scrambled egg on a hot buffet but it never looks appetising. Check out was quick. Would strongly recommend.

Arrived at 1.10pm on the off chance that our room may me ready as being Platinum Elite members this usually is the case.Indeed our room was ready and we were allocated a fabulous room with a view on the 7th floor by a friendly and informative receptionist.You literally came out the lift and were in the superb shopping centre which we stayed in for most of the day.The evening we sat out on the balcony in the hotel reception area.Were surprised to hear that breakfast was on until 11.30 which I have never come across in any IHG .This is obviously a well thought out idea from managers in this hotel meaning guests can have a leisurely morning rather than having to rush and also saves all the congestion at peak time!.The young man on duty also came to inform us that he was closing and asked if we wanted anything else which was first class service.
Pity it was a half way stop for us on our way to Scotland otherwise we would love to go here again....perhaps next year!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steve77 best hotel so far
Iv stayed in many hotels in Hull over the past 10years and the holiday inn express has got to have been the best so far.
Location of hotel is perfect for nightlife,and theres plenty of places to grab some food and being build over a shopping cemter is great if you want to do shopping while you stay also the staff at the hotel are very friendly and will cater for any needs
Best nights sleep iv had during my stays in Hull
And has got to be the best room iv ever had clean and tidy it was spotless i would highly recoment this hotel to everyone
Thank you holiday inn and most of all the staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great value for money!!
The holiday inn express was just as we thought a nice clean hotel with everything you need for an overnight shopping trip! However there was no mirror on the dressing table or nr a plug socket so we had to go and buy one as 3 girls getting ready for a night out with no place to do hair would be a nightmare!! The complimentary breakfast was a bonus especially as it was on until 11:30!!! Staff were all very friendly and the hotel very secure! One downside was the uncomfortable sofa bed but it was only for one night! Overall a good hotel!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by renrut4 service has improved greatly - give this hotel another chance!
We ( a family of 2 adults & 2 children) have stayed in this hotel several times in the past. The location is excellent but the service was disappointing. This changed significantly on this visit for the better. Every member of staff was cheerful, helpful and efficient, particularly Kev & Becs, and we left after a 3 night stay with a very positive attitude to this hotel. One example - on the first evening, we collected extra milk from reception for tea. On the second evening, the extra milk was replenished without asking. We had a problem with the car park card (the car park is part of the adjacent shopping centre) - the hotel reception resolved the problem for us. Both small things, but the attitude of the hotel staff was the key. The hotel is a standard HI Express but the rooms were clean, tidy and comfortable. Breakfast was included in the rate, and a good selection was available, but the attitude of the staff was great - breakfast about to finish, everyone asked if they wanted anything more before doors are closed.
Highly recommended for a stay in Hull, with good service and great location. Well worth extra money compared to the Travelodge and Campanile which are nearby.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Anon34a CHEAP(ISH) BUT NOT CHEERFUL!
Although the room was clean, it was rather 'tired' and shabby. Breakfast was chaotic due to large volume of customers and lack of staff. It would have been helpful to have been advised that the hotel does not actually have its own car park and that we needed to park in the shopping centre (this was not a problem in itself but we didn't appreciate driving round and round looking for a hotel car park that doesn't exist). Also we were charged twice for car parking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sdksjp As always a great stay
Multiple rooms booked and little confusion caused by myself but the staff are helpful as always and reassigned our rooms and all was well and nothing is to much trouble. Not if but when you go to Hull stay here it is all on your door step. Special thanks to Becs she will always remember you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Debby1924 Small family room - poor breakfast
The family room we had was extremely small and really not adequate. The breakfast was poor. Coffee was disgusting, beans were if the cheap variety. Bread had to be toasted as again, it felt cheap and not entirely fresh!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Goldenbudda Central location
Hotel in town centre parking is in st stephens car park next to hotel, £7 for 24 hours if you stay at the hotel, if you want to take your car out between your stay you have to pay again to exit the car park which is a rip off , we stayed for 2 days Friday & Saturday. On checking in we were informed that the restaurant was not serving food over the weekend only breakfast, which is very poor for a hotel the size of the holiday inn express. the staff at this hotel need re training in customer service skills, there is know interaction with the guest. The breakfast is one of the worst iv ever experienced, I only had a yoghurt on both days, yes there was other dried up hot food if you like that for breakfast, would never stay in this hotel again whilst visiting hull.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grinch Holiday Inn Hull express
I stayed here for two nights with wife and two small boys, (reward nights). Hotel was as is the case with IHG consistently clean, tidy and in a good state of repair. Rooms were clean and tidy as was all the facilities. Staff were exceptionally nice and pleasant, genuine, not just the painted on result of training. There were three things that took shine off - Wifi kept dropping, parking - although very convenient and link from the multistorey of St Stephens to the hotel is seconds walk, £7 per night doesnt feel best value and finally breakfast. I stay in these hotels weekly and have learnt express breakfasts are hit and miss. This hotels missed on first day (food not replenished , i ate at 9am so feel sorry for the later arrivals for breakfast, but second day was plentiful and fresh - so perhaps just a hickup.

Room was excellent, very clean and tidy. just a shower, but what a powerfully shower.
Secure lift to floors.
Centrally located which is a massive plus.
Reception staff and check in very efficient. Becs (I think this was the you ladies name), was very helpfull on suggesting places to have a drink and point this on a map for me and the wife.
Would I come again, yes, thinking about it already.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 10nelson1805 Overnight in Hull.
The Holiday Inn Express in Hull is easy to locate as it is a modern building attached to a multi-storey carpark just off the City centre. This unique feature means that you can park up in the dry and enter the hotel in the same way. This would be a very useful thing in the winter!!. The staff are very courteous and helpful and checking in was a good experience. The bar/dining area is quite spaceous and airy and has a veranda that overlooks the city some little way below. The rooms are an adequate size, but maybe a little cramped if there"s a few of you, but at the price that is of small consequence. The breakfast bar is well stocked with all the usual favourites and you can help yourself to as much as you like. Overall my stay at the Holiday Inn was a good experience and I would stay again if in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sidneyboy Almost excellent
Location of hotel excellent for me and my partner - we could see Hull Truck Theatre from our room. The room was spotless, modern and utilised the smallish space well. Location of car park is great - you can practically fall into reception from level 2. Reception staff were polite, friendly and informative. Breakfast was good overall. The waiters were very good. However, the waitress did not disguise her irritation at guests arriving later, nearer to restaurant closing time. If you advertise breakfast until 11.30am then it should be served until then. Staff were starting to clear away well before this time so anyone arriving after 11.15 found less on the menu. I actually felt I was in the way of some staff when i returned to the food area. Anyone arriving at 11.31am found the shutters closed. Also, the orange juice was vile and cheap and if you can't serve decent coffee then don't bother. If not for my restaurant gripes I would give top marks all round.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JEDM Great location and great hotel.
Visited Hull 2.5 years ago as part of a group and wanted to come back to see Hull properly. And this was the obvious choice of hotel as I remembered its location, facilities and staff to be perfect for a weekend break. Would recommend the balcony outside the bar as a perfect place to soak up the evening sunshine (if you're visiting in summer like us of course). Staff were very helpful and efficient: top marks to them (Becs and A.N.Other - sorry forgotten name). Inclusive breakfast was a nice bonus I'd forgotten about. Looking forward to visiting Hull again maybe next bank holiday for another long weekend. A much underrated city for shops and nightlife. The Old Town pubs are not to be missed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Where was the car park?
Very handy location in the city centre, next to the railway station. You can walk from here to most of the city's main attractions. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room, on the 5th floor, was mainly quiet, though there was some noise at night from the station 'courtyard', which seems to be a gathering place for the local bored youth. Our main criticism is that the hotel's written directions don't make it clear that its car park is actually the St Stephens shopping centre car park (we were looking in vain for a Holiday Inn Express CP). If we'd known that we'd have saved ten minutes going twice round the houses!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catherine89 Good value and excellent staff
Recently stayed here since will be moving to the area soon and was looking around for places to rent. The receptionist on the desk went to the trouble of pointing out the nicer areas of Hull and recommending some estate agents.
Additionally, found the price really reasonable since booked up in advance. Didn't actually realise breakfast was included at first so that was a nice surprise.
Overall, would definitely recommend

Cervility costs nothing and you certainly get that from your staff
Well done as always
