Having stayed here twice is indeed in itself an excellent advertisement for Knowle House apartments. Just a few minutes walk outside of the city walls and with a supermarket on the main road catering for all amenities, it's the perfect location for exploring York. The full English breakfast is good quality and an ample portion size. There were some refurbishments... More

Just arrived home from a 3 day stay at Knowle House Apartments, allocated 'York' apartment. Small but fine for a couple, clean room, bed, kitchen and bathroom. Five minutes walk to town, friendly and helpful staff and car parking .Only negatives are the 5 flights of stairs to this room and some minor lack of attention to detail for example... More

We stayed in the St Olave's apartment. Reception was very friendly and helpful and the apartment was very good, being in an old house it boasted high coved ceilings, very large sash windows and was clean, spacious and well furnished. The kitchen area was excellent with a full size electric cooker as well as a microwave, and was well stocked... More

Having spent a couple of nights at Hedley House, I can highly recommend them. The rooms are clean, tidy and really comfortable; the breakfasts were superb and the staff are so, so friendly. It's situated really near to York's old town, perfect for sight seeing around the town. We'll definitely be back!

My mum and I spent two nights at Hedley House Hotel, to visit York for a few days. The hotel was absolutely lovely, and we were not expecting the small kitchen in the hotel room! The room really was a suite, with a great shower, plenty of towels, two(!) hairdryers, a big TV, and even a dining table with room... More

Booked through KGB Deals as a double room with breakfast but were accomodated in an apartment in Knowle House. The staff are very good and the breakfast was excellent and served efficently even through there was a large group of French students staying. The location is really good being just outside the walls. I would recommend it to friends.

Booked through Living Social so got great deal on a twin room ensuite, actually was accommodated in an apartment located in the hotel gardens. Very handy for the outdoor spa facilities, which looked lovely but we hadn't bought robes, I'd recommend big fluffy ones seeing as its likely to hail this summer!! I'd use this accommodation again for a longer... More
