Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jacksf21 Good value, excellent location
This is about the fifth time we have stayed here. Good value considering breakfast is included. Great location for station, shops and theatre.
We have stayed at other budget hotels in Hull but always return here for our overnight stay to visit our son at the Uni.
Breakfast is adequate, just don't expect top quality food. Rooms are clean and comfortable.
Parking is £7 for 24hours which is good value too considering you are in a city centre.
Will definitely be returning in the new year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SirClive World Masters... World Class...!
I recently had the pleasure of staying in the Holiday Inn Express in Hull during a trip with my son to the World Masters Darts event. Most of our team were booked into an alternative hotel in Hull town centre but it was booked out when I tried booking. I did manage to book the Holiday Inn Express and having seen the 'alternative' hotel and heard my fellow travellers' account of it, I really am glad I got the Holiday Inn.
The first thing I noticed was the overall attitude of the staff. Nothing like big smiles from the girls at reception to make you feel welcome. Then the clenliness, the hotel is absolutely spotless and the facilities are second to none. Free wifi and internet access in the lobby, unlike the 'paid for' services my colleagues experienced in their hotel. The Holiday Inn even put dart boards in the reception area to facilitate the players, one of which was my son and his friend who also stayed with us. There was also a courtesy phone in reception which rang directly to a cab company, which was extremely useful.
Would I stay there again? Absolutely. Would I recommend it to anyone? Complete no brainer.... absolutely.

This is one of my favourite hotels. It is very close to Hull Truck Theatre, which I like to visit, and also next to St. Stephens shopping centre, which can be reached through the car park.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hunnypie A great stay!
From booking in to booking out, I can't think of anything more negative to say other than a couple of more tea bags would have been nice in the room as I love a cuppa tea or three.
The room was more than adequate, the mattress was just fabulous,so comfortable and I was reluctant to get up in the morning for a very nice breakfast, all in with the price of the room and enough choice to set you up for a day's shopping in St Stephens .
A great weekend and we'll definitely be returning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Valerie7 Very happy with overall experience
This hotel is very clean, lovely white towels in the bathroom, very clean linen and comfortable beds. The staff were extemely helpful and very polite and all of a happy disposition. The free breakfast was of a very high standard - well replenished and appertising.
I will stay here again and if I need a hotel elsewhere I will certainly check out if they have a Holiday Inn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by galloway Sausages
Cant fault the staff(although i had to check in twice because they had not combined my two reservations as requested when booking, i had missed a digit when referencing the other reservation,so perhaps my fault) , the room, the location, cleanliness etc etc
BUT the sausages at breakfast are lousy , cheap, tasteless and nasty. You get better ini a transport cafe.
if you want something cooked at breakfast go elsewhere. Sausage beans and scramled egg is an adequate offering, in a hotel at this cost in my opinion, but the sausages YUK.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Daviddd Almost everything fine
MIFI very slow: 1.7-1.9 Mb/sec according to broadband test meter
Normal breakfast fine (cooked breakfast, very bland sausages - went to M & S cafe for sausage & bacon butties instead).
Very thorough lady cleaner on 6th floor
Cleanliness (and quiet) of room
Excellent location 50 metres from train station.
Helpful reception attendant who managed to get my laptop to connect to WIFI (my laptop's problem, not the hotel WIFI system).
Very pleasant, solicitous Eastern European (?) waiter on duty at breakfast time.

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.

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!
