Portland Hotel - Cesspit of a hotel
Posted Jun 12, 2012
Dreadful overall experience. Long gone are the days that The Portland Hotel can be considered a quality Hotel. Being from Hull originally I remember when it was considered a quality place
Very tired, extremely dirty overall, whole hotel was obnoxiously smelly. Website advertises cleanliness, we must have been unlucky as our room was filthy. Requested the use of an iron and ironing board, request was ignored three times before I went downstairs to the front desk to ask again.
Hotels website advertises room safe, they are non existent (Only suites have them apparently). Toilet only flushed one out of four or five attempts. Bath was filthy on arrival.
No Parking available except on street at £2.90 for two hours, had to use train station car park at cost of £70 for duration of our stay.
I would have checked out early if we hadn't paid for 9 days in advance. This hotel experience totally ruined our first visit back to Hull in 12 years
Never again for us....Book your stay in Hull elsewhere.
