important do not stay here under any circumstances

I refused to stay here and am seeking a refund through Expedia. I was inside the building when a pigeon that must have been nesting in the building nearly hit me in the head. I ducked and it then splatted onto large glass window behind me. The place is filthy and a health risk and is probably no better than a Salvation Army hostel for the homeless. The bed had no sheets and I was told the poser mattress cover was the bed sheet! I left the premises and booked into another hotel which was clean and tidy. Expedia should remove the Portland from its systems and I am certainly making a complaint to local health authority regarding this place and also to local tourist board to get them to remove this place from their books. I'm very annoyed that I was tricked into booking such a disgusting place and hopeful to get a full refund. My advise is avoid booking this place if you value your health and safety!

Can't review as they had no rooms left so Hotels.com kindly diverted me to another hotel

Doesn't live up to the price.

First off let me start by saying that the staff were super friendly and as helpful as they could be (albeit clearly hindered by lack of proper management). The building itself is huge, too huge for the amount of staff that we saw working there. The room we were in initially was fine; it was small and resembled that of a room in a military barracks (even the smell). It was basic with the bare essentials (1 half-used toilet roll and 2 towels, one clean and one ... not so clean, no soap - hand soap or otherwise - and uncomfortable cheap (maybe even disposable?) bedding ... Oh and a very loud fridge). We had to move out of this room because there was a ceiling leak above the bath which was dripping very loudly and they put us nextdoor in a room that had clearly been very hastily cleaned with a lot of bleach, enough to induce a headache with the fumes left behind, and a shower that was not on the wall because the bracket had snapped off. The windows couldn't lock, so as we left the room the lock on the door didn't really matter (The room we were moved into couldn't even lock from the inside as the lock was broken) because anyone could slide open the giant (and I mean giant) window and take anything out the same way if they chose. Outside the window the balcony-type roof was littered in all kinds of rubbish. The bar nextdoor is very loud so don't expect to be able to sleep either. Self-catered? I mean ... There's a kitchen but provide your own cookware, dishes, food, ...

Pros: The staff were friendly and tried their best to make our stay pleasant.

Cons: The hotel needs proper management and could benefit from a refurbishment so you don't feel like you're sleeping in a derelict abandoned warehouse.

Location: It's very close to the bus / train station, central location in town surrounded by just about everything Hull has to offer (not a lot).

Worse than a doss house

There is a bed. mattress is just springs with a cover, the sheet was thinner than a voile curtain, that is all, no hangers in wardrobe but there is a full size fridge inside the wardrobe, the window was encrusted with black grease probably from the cafe extraction fan behind the building, the bath hadn't been cleaned, no soap. The receptionist bought me a kettle, cup coffe and milk. No other facilities, had to watch TV on my iPad as there isn't one but there is an aerial socket, the only light is a bedside lamp. Later found out this is 'campus accomodation' although no mention of that on the booking website, but even students deserve better than this. I reckon that the average cell in any of Her Majesty's prisons get better rooms than this, it isn't even fit to be called a doss house, it's far worse.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: A good clean and truthful advertising

Location: It's in Hull centre, tells uou all you need to know

  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Although this hotel was cheap I would rather have paid extra to have some creature comforts like a bar of soap, a tv and maybe some tea and coffee. There was none of the above in the room, the toilet roll holder in bathroom was broken and tap in the bath was leaking. The room was pretty basic in all honesty and could have done with a serious brightening up to make it home homely.
