This hotel has a great location to York city, basically across the road from one of the gateways to the city. Looking out our window we could clearly see the York Minster. Our room at the front of the hotel on the third floor was spacious, clean and had quite a large over the bath shower. The room had a... More

Chose this hotel to visit Christmas market in York. Hotel is well placed just outside the city wall, a ten minute walk to the minster and shopping centre. Hotel is being upgraded through addition of new block which means there is no parking on site but is available nearby for £5 a day. Rooms are clean and comfortable but shower... More

A very disappointing stay, on arrival we found the hotel staff very pleasant and helpful and were offered a king sized room above the function room with music till 12 midnight or a standard quieter room, a big mistake! The room was above the kitchen which proved to be very noisy till late and early in the morning with fans... More

I arranged a Christmas party for myself and some friends in the Monkbar restaurant and it was excellent. The food was very well cooked and plentiful, especially for mass catering, The service was excellent, friendly and efficient without being too intrusive. I would especially like to thank Liz Beaumont, the Sales Coordinator, for all her help and patience in providing... More

Stayed here for fourth time. Always good service, room and lovely breakfast. Only down side is that the recent extension has meant that they no longer have onsite parking. You can park for £5 per night on Foss bank car park , 2 mins away. However at this time of year not easy to find a space, drove round five... More

The hotel location is excellent for sightseeing in York but it is also it's Nemesis. Room 24 is above a very busy junction, and has no soundproofing, hence traffic noise, late night revellers and the ancient sash windows rattling in the wind are not conducive to a night' s sleep. Make no mistake this is a very noisy room. The... More

Super location. Excellent staff; good food; comfortable and clean bed. BUT - really filthy chairs and rattan table in reception. Room 24 - dirty carpet, curtain off its track, dingy, yellowed 4 poster curtains hanging badly; a Pret a Porter sandwich sitting on the window ledge (?!) and, worst of all, no grid over the sink - I only just...

The quality of this Hotel was very good, what made it better was the quality of the staff, we were made to feel welcome and treated well through out our stay. The food was very good and the Hotel quiet at night.
