“Why would you stay in a hotel, so much more space!”

5/5

The building is lovely, gorgeous apartment equipped with everything you would need, ideal to make a snack or a full meal. Lovely fluffy big towels, its nice that you can check in at any time with the key codes.

“Great Apartment, Easy & Convenient”

5/5

Quirky accommodation with convenient parking!

Judy stayed in July2018 at James Reckitt Library

“Really impressed. Will be back!”

5/5

Very clean, well equipped ( kitchen had everything including a microwave) the windows opened (trust me have stayed in some places that were hot and you couldn’t open the windows!) Which was a great bonus. Wifi was great. Five minute walk from an aldi asda and kfc. Shower was really good and hot water was wasn’t a problem. Because of the park it could get a bit noisy but it was quiet from about 10.30 onwards and it didnt really bother us even with the windows open. Would definitely stay again as it would have cost us twice as much to stay in just one family room in a hotel and having the space for kids was great.

“Convenient bus ride to university. Relaxing room”

5/5

The room was very comfortable, and the staff friendly and quick to fix small issues. The front-facing location on the park was good, and so was access to buses and shops.

“Brilliant! Quirky and helpful staff!”

5/5

Loved the quirky property! Just shows you to never judge a book by its cover. Upon arrival you may feel the property is a bit rough around the edges. But I hope the owners never change the external appearance as it all adds to the character of the of the accommodation. We loved the easy check in with the easiest instructions to follow. The apartments were huge and incredibly spacious. The roof is sky high with windows to complement the ceiling height.Truly enjoyed our stay here. We had to stay another night with very late notice and the hosts were incredibly accommodating when booking another night stay, which was such a relief. I can’t recommend more highly of the seamless process it was to get another nights stay.

If there was anything to nit pick at the upper level within the apartment was a bit loud when walking on, however it didn’t bother us enough to be an issue.

“Ace location and amazing apartment”

5/5

Definitely, definitely recommend living at Kingston Villas. My girlfriend and I lived here for a while and it was amazing. Such a cool apartment with everything you need on your doorstep. If you want somewhere perfectly located with charm and style, this is the place for you. Very decent owners too, always helpful and friendly.

“Spotless and great value for money”

5/5

Great value, to have your own apartment without noise from hotel rooms. Free parking too.

Spot less and great value for money

The only thing missing was a full length mirror and I would recommend the owners make this low cost addition to ensure repeat guests.

“Fantastic Apartment – Lovely, modern & very clean”

5/5

Everything was just perfect. The apartment was fantastic. 2 bedrooms with e-suites, lovely big showers, clean, lots of space, nice & modern throughout. Lots of seating in the lounge with table & chairs & coffee tables. Kitchen had everything you need; cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster, all pots & pans, dishwasher, plenty of parking & free wi-fi was an added bonus.

I asked the host in advance if I paid extra, would they be able to leave a gift in the apartment for my parents anniversary, this was done for me & was great. Flowers, chocolates and balloons. Thank you for this, it made it extra special. Would highly recommend a stay & would stay again if I come back to Hull.

4/5

Great value, location and well furnished. Collecting keys from a lock box was also really convenient.
A couple of finishing touches like toiletries in the bathroom and tea / coffee in the kitchen would have been nice.

“Gorgeous, tasteful living in the heart of Hull’s coolest Arty Neighbourhood”

5/5

We cannot recommend living at Kingston Villas highly enough. We lived in a stylish and elegant apartment in this beautiful house for a year and a half and can truly say you will find no better place to make Home in Hull. Whether your stay is for a night or years, you will instantly feel connected to the city in this historic building. The apartment was furnished and designed to the highest standard with views across the most charming park in Hull. Those in charge were nothing but friendly and accommodating to us throughout our entire stay. Particular highlights for us include the high ceilings, spacious rooms and thoughtful detail in the design. As two full time working professionals it was wonderful to get home from work and enjoy the space. We also hosted some brilliant dinners and brunches throughout our stay here and friends were always impressed by this gem.

“Home from home”

Just want to say thank you for providing my self and my family with such fabulous accommodation this weekend.
It has been a really home from home experience. So much so we didn’t want to leave and the children wanted to live there. We will definitely be staying again in the very near future. Thank you and we will see you again soon.

We loved how easy,clean and spacious it was and will definitely use again. Owner was very helpful, but left you to enjoy yourself and the location was perfect. Close enough to centre but far enough away as well, 100 out of 100 from us!!!!

Everything was great, loved all of it!!!
