Dennis Lennox's visit to Beverley Minster
With art galleries, theatres, museums, historical landmarks and an abundance of amazing bars and restaurants, Hull has something to offer everyone. With a stunning marina, amazing scenic views of the Humber, and being just a stone’s throw from some of the country’s most beautiful countryside, Hull is a great place to explore whether you’re visiting for work or fun.
But where should you stay? Here are some of the top hotels in the area:
DoubleTree by Hilton, Hull
One of Hull City Centre’s newest hotel developments, you’ll be sure to enjoy a luxe experience whilst staying here. It’s just a few minutes from St Stephen’s shopping centre where you’ll find many favourite high street brands, leisure outlets and plenty of restaurants. However, you may not want to leave your hotel when you see the beautifully appointed rooms and visit the rooftop bar, The Lexington. Here you can enjoy a delicious afternoon tea, brunch or even take part in a cocktail masterclass whilst enjoying amazing views over the city.
Hideout Hotel, Hull
Another recent addition to Hull’s hotel scene, the Hideout Hotel offers something a little different. This boutique hotel features 15 stylish, serviced apartments, nestled in the heart of Hull’s old town. Enjoy home-from-home comfort just a few minutes from some of Hull’s biggest tourist locations, including the Fruit Market, The Deep, the bustling marina and busy shopping centres. The Hideout will happily stock your fridge ready for your stay (just send them a list) and will even take care of your dry cleaning if you want them to.
The Royal Hotel, Hull
This is a stunning landmark, and one of the first things you’ll see when you hop off the train at Hull Train Station. Outside, the building boasts grand Victorian architecture, and inside the decor is modern and luxurious. It’s based right in the city centre, so it’s the perfect place to relax after a busy day enjoying the sights. It truly is a Royal hotel, too, as Queen Victoria once stayed here in the 1800s!
The Village Hotel, Hessle
Not too far from Hull City Centre, The Village is a modern, well-equipped hotel just a stone’s throw from the Humber and A63. It boasts a gym, spa, Starbucks Coffee House, a bar and a restaurant. It’s also a few minutes’ walk from Hull’s Park & Ride facility, which is handy if you don’t want to take your car into the city centre. It’s a great place for exploring the city and beyond, especially if you’re travelling by car with its ample free parking.
Mercure Grange Park Hotel, Willerby
This 19th century manor house is located on the outskirts of Hull in a village called Willerby, so it’s a great place to stay if you’d like to explore the wider area. It has a peaceful setting with 12 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens, a health club, restaurant and bar.
