We stayed here for one night attending a work function nearby. Four of us shared three rooms which were all close to each other in the main building. I did notice that the room was not immaculate, but clean enough that I could stay. The furniture however looked tired and the decor was dated. The showers are really small, being... More

This isn't a 5 star establishment but then it has never claimed to be. For what you pay it is a bargain and a great little hidden gem. We thouroughly enjoyed our time here, it could probably do with a little updating and the floor boards in our room were quite creaky but hey it's an old building what more... More

I travelled here with my girlfriend over my birthday weekend. We did not get to experience much of the hotel as we spent a lot of the day out exploring the various attractions in York. However the decor was outstanding, the rooms very spacious and the bathroom was superb. It was a great regret of ours that we did not... More

No food at 9.30 pm The decor was disgusting and extremely dated. The room stank so bad I had to move to another where the decor was even worse. Shower screen hanging loose. Beds completely ancient and uncomfortable. No sound proofing between rooms so had to listen to next door's sneezing and then sexual antics. This place is shocking.

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
