Half Term Hideout in Hull


We've had the Levine family to stay at Hideout during half term break. We hung out with Saffy (9 years old) and Lily-Rose (12 years old) to find out what they thought about Hull, and their Hideout.

Q: Hi saffy, what did you like about hull the most?

A: I really like the fish & chips in Hull, and playing in the water pools and sculptures outside the Hotel was fun. My favourite stationary shop Smiggle was just down the road in Princes Quay, I bought loads of cool stuff to take back to school next week.

Q: Lily, how about you?

I liked exploring the old streets and buildings in the old town. I got loads of cool Instagram photos!

Q: what were your favourite things about your hotel apartment?

Saffy: Ooo I loved being able to watch Netflix from my bed, and I could see the stars through the skylight in the bedroom..until Lily made me close the blind...but the blind was cool too because it was electric.

Lily: I loved painting on the easel in the living room. I've not used watercolours much before so that was pretty cool.

Q: Did you visit any of the free museums?

Lily: We went to see the Turner Prize at Ferens Art Gallery, and Saffy and Dad went to the Streetlife museum whilst Pip (my Stepmum) and I went down Humber Street shopping.

Saffy: The Streetlife museum was so fun. I liked the old fashioned games.

Q: Would you come back to hideout?

Saffy: YES I want to live here! Pip & Dad said we might come back in the Christmas holidays too.

Lily: Oh my gosh yes. I want to bring my friends to stay here and go shopping, and to Thieving Harry's (my favourite Cafe).

Q: Parents, what did you think to your stay at Hideout, and Hull in general?

The location couldn't have been better, we didn't use the car once as everything was just a short walk away. The apartment was beautifully decorated just to our taste, and better equipped than our own home. Our Two Bedroom apartment had two gorgeous bathrooms, and had three TV's all with the Netflix app, so that was great on an evening for the girls, and us! 
We were spoilt for choice of places to eat and drink around us, we particularly enjoyed hanging out down Humber Street over on the Marina. We equally enjoyed the peace and quiet we got in the apartment whilst the kids entertained themselves doodling on the easel, reading the retro children's books, and watching Netflix. We will definitely be back to Hideout soon!
