We were here as part of a weekend break to start the school holidays. The weather was warm, hot even. But the rooms were stiflingly hot. There is no air conditioning and the windows don't even open properly. Needless to say we didn't sleep either night of our stay. To make it even more unpleasant the pool was closed two... More

Good morning and thank you for your review. First, I would like to apologise for the closure of the pool. We have had to take the decision to close it at short notice as we felt it was not safe to keep it open. I am sorry you felt the alternative offered was not satisfactory and we will take your...

Our stay here was a real mixed bag, the staff are really helpful and nice making you feel really welcome. However we stayed on 2 very warm evenings and were on the top floor - it was roasting. No air con in rooms but reception did find us a fan, albeit a small one. There were video games and computers... More

Stayed here as part of a large group doing a cycle ride. Fantastic welcome from the receptionist and staff were very helpful in helping us store our bikes. The lobby area had loads of computer consoles which a lot of children were entertained by. We had a spacious room overlooking the River Foss. Large bed and good quality power shower.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with the family, kids loved the hotel - access to the pool, a Wii and X-Box in reception / bar area to play with and a seating area overlooking the canal out back for evening drinks. The water in the pool started stinging our eyes after about 25 minutes but it was good to relax... More

As well as walking by road you can walk either along the Foss or the river Ouse. The hotel is clean and quiet and staff pleasant and helpful. There is a garden with seating over looking the... More

For the price that we paid I expected a bit more.... I agree with the other recent reviews...cleanliness not great...only one set of pillows (none in the cupboards etc)...and no Aircon which meant the room was very hot! They did bring a fan but it was the kind that should be used as a heater and not the type on... More

I actually read a few reviews before booking but wrongly assumed that people may have been exaggerating about the temperature issue. I actually really loved the hotel's location, the breakfast, the outside seating area overlooking the water and found the staff really friendly. However the whole hotel is too hot!! There is clearly an air con issue throughout and knowing... More
