Stayed at the Royal York Hotel as a group of six friends (3 couples) to explore the beautiful city of York. Overall impressions were that the hotel was overpriced, with the superior rooms feeling small, dated and significant need of renovation. Of course, this is an old hotel and we expected a certain amount of rustic charm and for the... More

On arrival at hotel,we were greeted by Caroline, she made us feel so welcome. The room was nice, it was in the royal garden wing, it was very big,spotless,and looked out onto road, but this did not bother us. The bathrobe,slippers were a nice touch too. The first night we arrived we had a meal in the restaurant it was... More

I booked a suite for two nights and was therefore expecting a 'spacious lounge area' which I didnt get. The room was a decent size, but a single tub chair doesn't make it a suite! The wine and water was a nice touch which wasn't mentioned in the room specifications. Fresh milk should be supplied in the room, but it... More

The Royal York Hotel is definitely not business-friendly. Internet connection in your room is via broadband, for a fee, and doesn't work for tablets or smart phones. The rooms are shabby--threadbare carpeting, non-working windows, etc. We got a room near the train station and, because it was not air conditioned, we had to keep the windows open all night, hearing...

We stayed just one night at this hotel. It is very convenient if you are travelling by train as it can be accessed direct from the station. It has an old fashioned charm in the public areas but the room we had on the second floor was tiny an the double bed (barely a double) was right up against a... More

Stayed here with my partner for one night - a Saturday. Upon arrival, admittedly getting on for 8pm, we found parking to be limited although we found a space after about 5 minutes. Entrance to the hotel was an attractive doorway, to a revolving door (not my forté- I got my luggage stuck in this one too). Check in was... More

Very beautiful hotel. Well kept garden and grounds with comfortable rooms. The employees were very polite and helpful. The restaurant for afternoon tea was a great value and decent, but not excellent.

We had two family rooms, a double and a twin and we were very impressed with the quality of the rooms and the facilities. The restaurant was fantastic - we had dinner on the Saturday night and we all loved the food... More
