Setting

Buzzing city centre

Make yourselves at home in Hull at Hideout Hotel, whose 15 apartments and refreshingly independent approach to hospitality encourages you to do exactly that. Forget Independence Day, this is an independence stay: from self-check-in (via a nifty code) to the notable absence of staff. There’s no restaurant or bar – but you’ll fall for the onsite independent café, BE coffee house, where you’re likely to start each day’s adventures. And, locally loved Atom Brewery, just next door, where you'll likely end them…

Our favourite rooms

The Deluxe One Bedroom Apartment gets our vote, thanks to its lashings of space, separate living room and freestanding claw-foot bath tub – we’d happily move in.

Packing tips

Bring footwear fit for cobbled streets and an appetite for fish and chips.

Also

Except for the Den Studio, all apartments come with an arty boon: an easel and watercolours for guests to use during their stay. Unleash your inner Hockney.

Dress Code

Wear whatever the heck you like: you’ve got an apartment to yourselves, after all.

Hideout doesn’t have a restaurant, but shares space with an independent café, BE Coffee, which serves delicious home-made sausage rolls and excellent coffee, among other things.

Automobiles

Hotel parking is £8 a night; drop your luggage off at the hotel entrance when you arrive (the carpark’s a short walk away).

Worth getting out of bed for

Spend some time getting the most out of your surroundings: admire the art on your walls (buy a piece or two if you’d like to take it home with you: most of the hotel’s art is for sale). Sit back with a just-brewed coffee, starring the beans you’ll find in your apartment – they’re sourced from the local Blending Rooms. (Hideout can also provide in-room ‘fill the fridge’ hampers on request.) Hull Minster is close enough for a staring contest; and stare you should – it's rather comely, both outside and in, where elaborate stained-glass windows sparkle. Wander around Humber Street Fruit Market, pausing to pick up snacks from the food stalls and listen to live music – the market hosts regular performances. Get an art fix at Ferens Art Gallery in Queen Victoria Square, home to a magnificent array of paintings and sculptures, including works by European Old Masters and modern British art. Dive into The Deep, the UK’s largest aquarium (more than 3,500 fish await) on Tower Street; stay put for an eye-popping, fish-spying dinner at the aquarium’s restaurant. And, if you want to peep through – allegedly – England's smallest window, head to the Land of Green Ginger alleyway and stop by the George Hotel.

Local restaurants

Great name, even better food: Thieving Harry’s at the Dock, Queen Street, will handsomely fulfil your brunch and lunch needs. Options include crumpets, French toast with streaky bacon and maple syrup, and fried eggs with chorizo, salsa and crushed avocado. Have a delicious pub lunch at Head of Steam on King Street, which woos brew lovers with a worthy line-up of craft, cask and world beers, plus some lip-smackingly tasty ciders. The former home of a fruit merchant, Butler Whites on Humber Street has been sensitively transformed into a modern restaurant that’s beloved of locals. Highlights include buttermilk chicken, king prawn thermidor, pizza with pork belly and black pudding, and pan-seared sea bass. Or, canter through Spanish shared plates at Tapasya @ Marina, on Humber Dock Street. For a sloppy yet satisfying, grab-and-go affair, make a pilgrimage to the Dope Burger stand on Anlaby Road by the station. The Black-and-Blue burger with melted blue and cheddar cheese and treacle soaked into the bun is an unholy, yet heavenly, treat. 

Local bars

Slake your thirst in style at Bar 82, which is sitting pretty on Princes Dock Street, in the heart of Hull’s Old Town. Historic Hull is still evident in its drinkeries: 17th-century watering hole, Ye Olde White Harte, is notable as the place where the English Civil War kicked off (when city elders denied Charles I entry to the city); and WM Hawkes, on Scale Lane, has been flying the flag for maximalist decor for around 600 years… Back in the present, one of Hull's best pubs is right next door to the stay… Atom Beers has a stonking selection of craft beers.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this self-catering hotel in East Yorkshire and unpacked their Yorkshire tea and cheeses, a full account of their city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Hideout Hotel in Hull

If you’re the kind of traveller that takes a less-is-more approach to hotel service, you’ll love Hideout Hotel and its handsome bunch of self-catering apartments. These forward-thinking, city-centre stays set in a grand old Victorian building have been lovingly kitted out with designer furniture, sleek modern fittings and locally sourced curios and antiques. Some have glossy toffee-coloured parquet floors, claw-foot bath tubs and stellar views of Hull Minster and Trinity Square; all have cosy underfloor heating and a convenient kitchen area. Check yourselves in whenever you like, then enjoy in-room breakfast hampers and luxury food packages starring local treats, visit the onsite independent coffee shop or cook up a storm in your well-equipped kitchenette… leaving plenty of time to explore the 2017 City of Culture, of course.

 

The Guestbook

Whenever you book a stay at a Smith hotel or villa, we’ll invite you to review it when you get back. Read what other Smith members had to say in Hideout Hotel’s Guestbook below.

We loved

We loved the quirkiness of this hotel:the code emailed to you in advance to enter your large room and also park your car, the very lovely bathroom with delicious smelling products; the excellently equipped kitchen was a bonus, large and very comfy bed, the position in the heart of old Hull allowed us to see a side of Hull that one would never have expected – quirky buildings and cobbled streets. The friendliness and warmth of Hull residents is wonderful too.

Don’t expect

Peace and quiet at night – earphones provided by the bed were supplied – though not used by us.
