Lovely Art Nouveau interiors and helpfull staff. Parking a bit trickey but very handy to city centre. Rooms a bit old fashioned but perfect if you prefer to stay away from corporate type hotels. We would choose again.

lovely old building, warm fire and sitting area at the foot of the impressive staircase. Our window didn't close and we did ask someone to try to do something as freezing cold and very drafty(February),but nothing done so we asked for an extra quilt as they are very thin. The windows rattled and gales blew through the room, but only... More

A friend and I stayed here as we were visiting York for a shopping trip and might out. We got a room rate that would be decent in any city but for York, was fantastic. It is about 10 minutes walk from the station, so 15 mins to the centre, but I think the price more than compensated for the... More

Easy to find. Impressive looking building from the outside. Very poor car parking - hardly any at all. If you can't get in the car park, beware where you do park as its mostly residential parking (with permits). Arrived about half an hour prior to check in, and was told I could not check in til 2pm (fair enough). BUT... More

The building itself is stunning with a beautiful oak-panelled lounge. The staff were friendly and unintrusive. The location was excellent, 10 minutes walk from the city walls. The rooms are not immaculate, but the ivy creeping in the windows and broken lamps etc.. were part of the charm. The rooms were clean and the house-keeping staff friendly and did a... More

Arrived at the hotel at about 13.30pm and immediately told that we definitely can't check in until 14.00pm. That was fine because we just walked into the centre which was about 10 minutes. Car parking is a bit of an issue. The car park fits about 6 cars! So squeezed into a spot up the road. When we eventually checked... More

The improvement from when we last stayed was amazing. Still some way to for 100% top marks but getting there. location is still superb for visiting York attractions. Beware though the bridge driving restrictions.

Excellent hotel. Friendly staff and courteous. Only a 12 minute walk to the Micklegate area of City Walls. Spacious and clean room. Breakfast was excellent. Would definitely recommend and we will return.

Stayed for just one night and had a nice room over the road at the lodge, the room was spacious and bright with a large bathroom, the room had everything we needed for a short stay. The bed was comfortable and the room was lovely and warm. The main building was very ornate and all the staff were very friendly... More

My partner and I stopped for 2 nights, arriving on New Year's Day. We were greeted by friendly, helpful staff and after arranging for another guest to re-park their car, we were able to park in the small area opposite. Our room was plenty big enough and clean. It had everything we required for our short stay. TV, towels, shampoo,... More
