I really hope to plan another holiday so I can stay here again. Behind its unprepossessing front hides a beautiful old building, which I think has been lovingly maintained. I loved the labyrinthine corridors which led to my room, and I thought my room was beautiful. The one or two creaking floorboards simply added good character, for me. It’s not easy to maintain an old building, so what really matters is that it is clean. I did have a little trouble with using the bath, so I reported this to the lady on reception in the morning when I went out for the day, and when I got back she explained that the taps simply need to be turned much further than we are used to in modern buildings - and she was right and I had a lovely bath that evening.
I was there two nights and ended up eating there both times. I had walked down the Hight Street, and there are other choices but none happened to take my fancy.
I stayed here because I wanted to visit Hull (since I was already in the area), but did not want to stay in Hull itself. It was a 5-10 minute walk to the train station, and the service was good.
I did have breakfast included in my rate, and I was happy with it, but I didn’t try the cooked options so cannot comment on those.
I note other people have commented on the carpark: I did not have as much trouble as many of them, but I was nervous about leaving my car there, since it is indeed small. However, nothing did happen - most people don’t want to scratch their cars either!
I tried to use the WiFi but unfortunately I found it unreliable. Since I did not really need it (because it feels even more like a holiday when you can ignore the internet), I was not bothered and didn’t report this to the staff. (It may have been my devices and not their WiFi.)
I did not use the spa. less
