Overall the hotel is lovely. Was rather disappointed with the upgraded room, I paid the upgrade charge thinking I was getting a Superior room but ended up with a King room which was average. The service at dinner on our first night was lacking, order our drinks with our food and had to wait 20 minutes until we eventually asked... More

I stayed for one night on business. There was a friendly receptionist who gave me directions to the local car park and sold me a scratchcard parking ticket (£5 for 24hrs). I was allocated a newly refurbished room - it was spacious with a comfy double bed. The bathroom was good with a walk-in shower and the usual selection of... More

Lovely hotel in a perfect location for a break in York. Work was being done to extend the hotel when we were there but it did not interfere with our stay. We were put in the annex to begin with but when we explained that this was unsuitable, a room in the main hotel was made available. Staff friendly, rooms... More

If you want a great location for exploring York or are visiting the Barbican then this is a good choice. However if you want a good nights sleep and modern amenities then you will be disappointed. We were given room 12 which is a good size but very tired - the wardrobe door looked ready to drop off - and... More

New years eve - room next door to the lift and facing the main road, no parking facilities on site. Rude and unhelpful at breakfast, had to ask 3 times for tea and toast (white) and they still brought brown. Enough staff but doing nothing. - cooked breakfast was good. Not worth any money if you do not have a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the hotel very central for shops restaurants and the sights also has a car park which is a must for York. Breakfasts were ok nothing special,nice bar area and reception area, staff very friendly and helpful.If we return to York we would stay here again.
