the best feature of this hotel is the location. City Centre with Parking included, handy for roaming around the centre. Rooms are ok, by no means bad, but not plush either....perfect for a weekend and roaming around...it's all I needed. Didn't eat here, so can't comment on food....you're in the centre so you have so many choices. All in all... More

All nine double rooms were large,comfortable and clean with everything we needed: iron, hairdryer, tea, coffee, chocolate, tv, wi-fi,... More

My Husband and I and 2 work colleagues stayed here following a day at York races. On first impression I was quite impressed however upon only being able to fit 2 people and 2 overnight bags in the lift, this was not the case. No found the corridors more to be like a rabbit warren and also a health hazard... More

To be honest, we spent very little time in our room...a shame because we had been upgraded to a suite!!! The location of the hotel was absolutely perfect! Food was average but it was clean, spacious and we were always greeted with polite/attentive service. We will visit again!
