Each year we travel to York and stay here for birthdays and aniversarys, and each time were not let down. The royal york hotel is wonderful, great staff, great food, and great location, with parking which is very important in York. The pool and spa is ok, and ready for a spruce up but a lovely thing to do after... More

When I booked I requested a suite as it was my wifes 30th birthday, she is also heavily pregnant so I wanted her to have a comfortable stay, and I made sure I told them that when I booked over the phone. When we arrived we were put in a dingy cold room next to the road and above a... More

In terms of comfort, location and facilities, this hotel is hard to fault. Staying there on the weekend before Christmas meant lots of noise and crowds, but that's to be expected. Very slow service at the bar could have been avoided, though. Not bad.

Stayed in a garden room with a view of the sorting office! No garden view from any angle. The room smelt musty and damp. There were odd patches of painted over areas on wall. The bathroom was disgusting with black damp mould around the bath. Reception area very nice, rooms a disgrace. Will never stay here again!

Stayed for one night in this hotel and can thoroughly recommend it. The location is superb as it is right next door to the station. The welcome was warm and genuine. Our room was clean and warm with all the usual facilities. There was a bit of noise from revellers walking past in the night but this wasn't the fault... More

I am sure in its day The Royal York was the place to stay, not anymore.......We were given a disabled room (we did not request a disabled room) in the basement and although obvioulsy spacious, it was tired, dull and in need of a re-decorating. The price we paid was extremely high for such a basic room in an outdated... More

The room was ok, like the bathroom it needs updating the bed was not comfortable personal taste, barely slept due to noise from outside, the bathroom towels were dirty but I guess you get what you pay for, location ideal for trains and the bar downstairs is ok but after 10mins with the smell from the swimming baths it looses...

We love York and it is becoming an annual visit to celebrate my wife's birthday. I thought I would treat her to a posh hotel and remembered seeing the Royal York which looked very grand. I booked it in September at a cost of just under £280 for two nights. We arrived and the reception area looked as impressive as... More
