Theu have a pool outside which is a bonus and the breakfast is made to order, no buffet... More

My husband booked a weekend away for my 30th as a surprise, unfortunately not quite the surprise he was hoping for. The room was dirty complete with hairs in the bathroom and skid marks in the toilet and the decor was drab (and I'm being polite). The walls were paper thin (not too dissimilar to a caravans), which sadly meant... More

I booked two rooms at this hotel but a week later had to cancel when my mum became ill with pneumonia. A week later she died. Despite this I was charged £60 by this hotel for cancelling my reservation. What a horrible hotel.

We booked this via superbreaks, we are not fussy travellers at all, as long as there is somewhere to put our heads and have a shower, we're happy! We arrived asking to book a table for dinner but were told the restaurant closed 4 months ago. Not to worry, only a 15-20 minute walk into York. We were given room... More

Stayed here one night for a business meeting. Chose this place since a friend was staying here and the location was perfect for what we wanted. Stayed B&B. I had the room not in the main building but in the annexe bit which was good for quietness since it was the furthest from the main road. However this meant that... More

Breakfast was excellent and staff friendly. There is a regular bus service to the town centre of York which was good and the drop off bus stop is opposite the hotel. Also opposite is the race course for anyone who likes horse racing. Unfortunately the room we were given looked like a garage conversion and was not within the hotel.... More
