Real Ale Ray left this review about Mercure Hull Royal Hotel

A very handy hotel bar serving two well kept Wold Top ales. We tried The Wold Top Spring Fling and the Wold Gold and other customers were also making a beeline for them. The central bar area was plush and very comfortable and had an upbeat sort of atmosphere. The space consisted of a high ceiling painted in bronze, with lots of small square glass skylights. Large orange coloured lampshades hung from the ceiling in a bank of sixteen. The main columns were also painted in a bonze colour. Well worth a visit as it has a lot going for it.

Has been taken over by mercure hotels. The public bar of the hotel has direct access to hull train station. Standard draught selection and very handy for the platforms.

Sorry I beat that stay 18 months a haunted tired hotel where silver service should be top they try bless em.Bar meals good beer expensive was the place too stay in Victoria's day and the place too have one for train journey home.Most of its splendor was lost when like the Ye Old White Hart burnt down.However dont be put off by this stay there as your base for your stag do or pubcrawl and enjoy the breakfast. Oh yes the ghost well take my word for it dont sleep alone in the annexe and yes there is film evidence.She's a little girl and she runs along the corridor and the others well?If you are looking for the way the place actually was if you are into history check out Hull's museums and FERENSWAY art gallery in Victoria square.

My regular stopover hotel when working in Hull. Some of the rooms are quite basic, but they're slowly updating them all to a good standard. It used to be a lucky dip, but when you've stayed a few times you get to know which rooms to ask for. The bar is a grand affair and is part of the hotel reception and lobby. Lots of deep leather sofa's and ornate decor. There's direct access from the station as well. Sadly the choice on the bar is very limited. Worthingtons Smooth, mainstream lager or Guinness. Needless to say I don't drink in here very often unless I'm waiting for someone else.

We stayed here for one night a couple of weeks ago. The hotel is a shadow of its former self. As you walk into the main lounge area, which is a large and immpressive Victorian room, you begin to realize there is nothing Victorian in the room. As with most big hotels there were no cask ales available, only fizzy Worthingtons smooth flow and something that was supposed to be Caffrey's.

The double en-suite room was pleasant enough, but it was quite basic.

The one feature I was very impressed with was the breakfast, a full English breakfast and as much as you could eat. The self service toast making machine was especially interesting and time consuming.
