Was in Grimsby ok a business trip and arranged this hotel. The room is decent and big. The sound proofing wasn't very satisfying as noise from Main Street passerby can be clearly heard and the bed is old as you are able to feel the springs below it. Overall a ok hotel for a short stay.

A most pleasant three nights in this large hotel in the middle of Grimsby. Situated within a minute's walking distance to the Minster, two minutes to the fabulous new shopping centre, three minutes to the station and just 12 minutes to the Gala Bingo! The beautifully designed, bright dining room and bar served first class food. Perhaps the decoration in... More

Very unsatisfactory stay. The rooms need total refurbishment. Uncomfortable beds dated decor unsanitary bathrooms. A restaurant decorated with weddings in mind. Greasy fish and chips served in the restaurant. Management need to take a hard look at this place but will no doubt be happy servicing the Contractors Market place.

Dear guest, Thank you for your feedback which unfortunately on this occasion is negative. The hotel caters for a wide market which does include contractors however that is not a market that is specifically targeted. The restaurant is not decorated with weddings in mind, it is decorated in a way to promote a light and airy feel which benefits every... More
