This beautiful Hotel is most conveniently located in the City Centre a few steps away from the York Minster and within easy walking distance to all the interesting sites and sights of the beautiful Historical City of York. It's obviously a family owned Hotel as we saw the lady owner in different areas not only supervising but doing jobs herself.... More
