Your score 7.9 Good stuff... The hotel is situated right in the middle of the centre, therefore it is very convenient for all your activities around the town without being far from anywhere you might want to go for sightseeing, shopping or dining. Breakfast was very good, full English was of a very high quality and plenty of it. There... More

The hotel couldn't have been in a better location, 5 minute walk into the centre. Friendly helpful staff recommended places to visit and organised taxi's . Only had breakfast in the hotel but the choice was both plentiful , well cooked and tasty. The night porter needs to be mentioned a very polite, friendly helpful man. Would recommend this hotel...

Good service at reception and during breakfast. The breakfast was really rather good. Nice room with good heating with a TV, beverage tray, proper cupboard and desk.The bed, however, is a standard double so rather small. There was an over bath mixer shower. The cleanliness was okay but not complete. Our room was also over a nearby Indian restaurant (the... More

The hotel was a little over 10min walk from the train station and located just a few yards outside the city walls near one of the main gates. It is excellently located for exploring the beautiful centre of York and we made maximum use of this convenient location. Staff were friendly and professional, which is not as common as it... More

This hotel in the past had a good reputation as being well placed for the city centre and the fair cost. However now the cost is high and the poor services provided has tarnished this. The staff are wonderful it is what is on offer that is poor. I'm not sure I would come here again when there is better... More

As of February 2015 this hotel is undergoing some much needed refurbishment with the third floor currently unavailable. We stayed in a room on the second floor which looked as though it had last been updated in the 1980's so is in need of some updating. Having said that, the rooms are spacious and comfortable although the walls a bit... More

Stayed here for one night while attending a conference. There was no parking available but I was made aware of this in advance, so travelled by train. The hotel was only a short taxi ride away from the train station and would be easily walkable if I had had more time on my hands. The hotel location is excellent, sitting... More

Happened to find this hotel driving in York looking for a place late at night. Turned out very lucky as I liked it - except the walk to the car park which is maybe 5 minutes away, but small issue. Some quirky rooms, would have been interesting to look around if I had time, mine was a very nice duplex... More
