I booked a table for twelve people in the hotel's restaurant (Cloisters) to celebrate my Masters graduation with family. Every single staff member, from the person who helped me (via e-mail) arrange the reservation, the menus and the pre-orders, to the waitstaff, to the restaurant manager on the day, went above and beyond to make the day special. Not only... More

Upon seeing previous reviews, my boyfriend and I were a little anxious upon arrival, yet when we got there we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were wonderful and very helpful, the room was a generous size, nice and clean with a lovely view, and the food there was fab. The hotel is close to all the attractions you could wish...

We stayed here whilst visiting family in York. The manager was very welcoming in arrival - he had made sure that the baby listening device was working in our booked room. We had dinner on the first night - both food and service were excellent.

Best short stay break I have ever had in England. Staff were so attentive. Hotel warm, clean and welcoming. Highly recommended. Reception staff and breakfast staff especially friendly, near to all the main attractions with ample parking nearby.

Can not comment on the food as we didn't eat there. My wife had a slight... More

NYeve in york was fantastic and aided more so by our proximity to the town centre. Hotel very nice and staff wonderful and helpful. Room was a little basic and tatty but clean nevertheless. Mildew on the walls under the windows and shower seal was broke making showering a bit of a chore. Overall accommodation was acceptable but creaking floor... More
