My sister wrote a review regarding the room,however before we left Greg the manager came and apologised for this error and said it would not happen again and thanked us for bringing it to his attention. I will be definitely staying in this hotel again.

We stayed for two nights at the monkbar this weekend. We were in one of the rooms at the back of the hotel two flights of stairs to access it but one of the lads on staff kindly carried our bags. The room was very spacious with a lounge area. Room was very dated but clean the hotel is having... More

Public areas and breakfast OK but do not stay in room 101 unless you have ear plugs. Room 101 is next to a lift shaft with a window on a busy main road so it was a noisy night. The room was also dusty. I paid £100 for one night in a single room and expect better from A Best... More

Although the hotel is going through refurbishment there was no disruption. The room was lovely, large and comfortable. Both dinner and breakfast were first class. Staff were all friendly and helpful .Although there is no parking at the hotel, the deal of £5 per day at car park 2 minutes walk away I think is a good deal. We will... More

The hotel is undergoing a refurbishment and the price should reflect that, we arrived to be offered room 101 again on the busy main road next to the lift shaft, we requested another room, we were reallocated another room without any problem, the noise was probably the same as the guests stand outside the front of the hotel to smoke...

Spent a lovely 4 days here last week. Excellent Hotel, everything from check in to check out was great. Lovely room, nice breakfast, friendly staff and just minutes away from some traditional old pubs. What wasn’t there to like.

Really enjoyable stay for a night in York, a city we love. Staff very accomodating on arrival and arranged to store our luggage while we went into York. Room excellent. Lovely set of refreshments including bottled water. Breakfast excellent although a little crowded but it was a Saturday morning. The refurbished room has been tastefully done. My only negatives were... More
