Me and my partner have just returned from a two night stay on a four poster room. The room was very clean, warm and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and provided excellent service. the swimming pool felt a little cold, but we soon warmed up once we started swimming, and whilst the gym is small and compact, it...

I initially chose this hotel as it had good reviews and it was so close to the centre (a short walk) My plan was to do a spot of last minute Christmas shopping and enjoy the historical sites of York. Unfortunately the weather was bad and I was rather tired so decided to relax in the hotel browse the internet... More

Stayed here for New Years Eve. Had a fantastic meal before setting off out to welcome the New Year in at the Minster. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and comfy. Would recommend staying or dining here.

I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a work's function and was very well looked after. I am a fussy eater and when I stayed at the hotel I was ill with a cold but the food was great. The hotel staff were brilliant and looked after us (a group of around 16 people) really well. The rooms... More

This hotel has a very nice feel to it, Unpretentious, tidy décor with Friendly staff. Very clean and well maintained throughout - housekeeping is excellent, (this is where a lot of hotels fail so it's always a relief when it's of this standard because it means you can relax) I had a meal in the spacious but still cosy restaurant...

This was our 3rd stay at the Kilima Hotel and yet again it was lovely, the staff are always willing to help and the food in the restaurant was excellent. We will definitely be back for our 4th stay next year. We made use of the steam room, swimming pool and gym which were all very clean. The showers in... More

Very old hotel with classic old décor. I don't mean that's bad. Very good check in and a massive room which was clean and warm with flat screen TV. Comfortable bed. Scrupulously clean bathroom. Didn't try the spa. Didn't try the dinner but the breakfast was good. Would stay here again.

I selected this hotel purely for its location (I was undertaking a training course nearby) and the fact it had parking and I was pleasantly surprised. The welcome was excellent , the young man from reception coming round to help me through the door with my bags and carrying them to my room. Despite the fact it was a weekend... More

We visited the Kilima Hotel with friends as our base for a long weekend in York, Our stay duration was for two nights. Looking at the room rate for weekends, it is almost twice that of a weekday stay, which I suppose is understandable. If we were rating the value against the weekday price, it would have got an extra... More
