The hotel is peaceful and the staff friendly and welcoming. The room clean and pleasant. Free parking which is convenient when visiting York. A 20 minute walk to the centre but plenty of buses and an easy walk to the National Railway Museum (If that's your thing). The pool is well kept. Breakfast is good with plenty of choice and... More

Staff were very welcoming. Pool and steam room nice start to the day before breakfast. Did not stay for any evening meals but the breakfasts were very nice and nothing too much trouble for the staff. Stayed in the four poster room which was clean but could do with some TLC. About a 20 - 25 minute walk to city... More

We spent one night here recently and, as the hotel has good (free) parking, it is a handy base for visiting York. The town centre can be reached on foot in about 20 minutes. The room cost £198 bed and breakfast which is certainly a bit expensive for a 3 star hotel. Nevertheless it does have a swimming pool which... More

My husband and i spent the weekend at this lovely hotel and it was a joy from start to finish. We received a warm welcome from Chris on arrival and instantly felt at home.

Stayed here with my wife for a short city break. Very friendly staff, good breakfast and comfortable room, with added bonus of a separate sitting area. Bar prices were reasonable - we didn't have dinner in the restaurant so can't review that

We couldn't have asked for a better hotel for our three night stay in York. The location was convenient - just 20 minutes from the city centre - the staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant was reasonably priced, so we ate there two of the three nights (including our first anniversary). The food was... More

Brilliant all round. Got the room at £85 with a 4 poster bed and separate lounger area. Very helpful receptionist who explained all the hotels facilities along with giving us directions into town. The room was clean and bed comfy. Very good shower and bathroom! Highly recommended.

Visiting York races for the racing this well appointed hotel pressed all the right buttons. Nice bar, easy walk to the course, comfortable rooms and a freshly cooked full english for breakfast. As the title suggests the staff without exception were friendly and helpful. Not a typical plastic super hotel and all the better for it.
