Stayed here for our wedding anniversary in room 18 which is an executive suite. Fantastic room with views of the town and York Minster. Near a busy road though which can be noisy but we live near a motorway so we're used to it. The room was very clean and tidy with all new furnishings and the breakfast was fantastic... More

Just sat in the temporary reception area waiting to check out after. Lovely three night stay. Room was absolutely lovely (probably the best one we have stayed in here) and was one of the new ones. Yes there are renovations going on which will soon be finished but the staff are coping admirably with the changes and the new bar... More

The main hotel is nice and is situated behind the Minster about 15/20 minutes walk from the station. The breakfast was help yourself and ample choice in a nice restaurant. The only negative was we were put in a room in the lodge at the back of the hotel, which was next to a busy and very noisy road. We... More

The room was appalling! I understand renovations are taking place but these were meant to be completed before my stay. One employee even mentioned it was meant to be finished December 2014! The rooms advertised online look good but the reality of the older rooms is dreadful. It was old, grotty, very cramped for space. Had to sit in the... More

Stayed here twice now as a couple. We stayed here while in town to see a comedian and the hotel is lovely. Plenty of parking on site and great rooms. Stayed again and this time the hotel was undergoing refurbishment. Stay still as good but the lift was slow and no parking, but you could park just up the street... More

Stayed here for one night with my boyfriend and when we opened our hotel room door we were really pleasantly surprised! We stayed in room 16 and the design of the room was perfect, nice comfy beds and everything there that you needed. Really good location, you walk round the corner and your on to all the lovely shops, having... More

I think if you are planning to stay here in the next 3-4 weeks in Aug/Sept 2015 you need to be aware that the property is undergoing a major refurbishment programme. Bravely, the hotel is staying open and keeping disruption to a minimum but you will get issues with no Wifi in rooms, (although patchy in reception area), a temporary... More
