A very comfortable and welcoming hotel with attentive and helpful staff. Conveniently located adjacent to the Minster and all downtown facilities. Everything we wanted to visit was within easy walking distance

The hotel is located right in the heart of the historic district. A very good value. The rooms are clean and nice while not necessarily luxurious - but because of the location you will spend most of your time out and about anyway. Very friendly and helpful staff.

This hotel is situated right opposite the York Minister and very central to looking around. It was very convenient and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had breakfast included and there was a large menu to suit all. We would recommend it to anyone.

our stay at this hotel was ok , bar and reception staff very helpful . Rooms a bit dated and require a bit of new decor. Friends room next door to ours wasnt very nice, very dated and worn and bathroom drab and not very pleasant. Very noisy also . Probably wouldnt choose this hotel again

Location, staff - outstanding as on previous visits - atmosphere, food. Room location at the back of the hotel - much quieter than front with taxi rank/running engines/drivers chat (previous visit). Room was clean, tidy and well furnished. Breakfast was fantastic. Excellent location.

Full of praise for this hotel! Ideal location for visiting the Minster & old town, yet bedroom was quiet, bed very comfortable. Liked the Bistro, with it's very friendly staff-loved the Champagne Afternoon tea! Breakfast was best I have ever had. Thought the room rate & bar prices were very reasonable for this standard of hotel.
