Holiday Inn [Marina], Holiday Inn Express [City Centre], Premier Inn, Travelodge and the Ibis all offer what you’d hope from well-known hotel brands – easy access to the city centre and a good night’s sleep for a reasonable price. Most of these have a couple of locations in and around the city, so check their websites for more information. The Village Hotel is another popular option, with an indoor pool and a gym for guests.
If you want to jump straight from the train and into your room, the Britannia Hull Royal Hotel could hardly be in a better position. It’s directly connected to the train station and is in the centre of town; Larkin even wrote a poem about it. Or enjoy a stay at Hull’s latest hotel addition, the Hilton DoubleTree; Hull’s most luxurious offering. Including the Marco Pierre-White Steakhouse, a rooftop bar and 24-hour room service, you might never want to leave this lavish city-centre hub.
If you fancy a panoramic view of the Humber Bridge then the Hallmark Hotel is one to try, while the Kingston Theatre Hotel is in just the right spot for Old Town. Visitors heading to Cottingham could check out the Lazaat Hotel. There is also the four star 19th century manor house Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel nestled in 12 acres of landscaped gardens in the picturesque Willerby. Cave Castle Hotel is a castellated manor house just off the A63, set amongst 150 acres of parkland.
It’s not all about hotels though. Why not try Hideout Hotel who offer contemporary apartments in the heart of Hull. There are plenty of great B&Bs and self-catered options for accommodation too, like The Toll Cottage in Cottingham. Airbnb is another good place to look, which is full of gems like this converted orangery in a rose garden near Beverley. Take a peek at the other homestays (including whole properties) available on Airbnb now.
If you fancy a truly authentic rural East Yorkshire experience, why not spend the night on a working farm, for example Butt Farm in Beverley?
