Booked a suite and got a newly refurbished room which was beautiful. Rooms were beautifully decorated and clean. Only stayed one night, would definitely go back. Lovely views. Staff welcoming and helpful. Perfect location for exploring York.

First the good - the location is great, right by the train station and 5-10 mins to walk into the centre. The staff are very friendly working in what must be a difficult situation, the hotel is under renovation so fingers crossed it will be better one day - it certainly has potential if done right. Check-in/Check-out - takes an... More

My friend and I stayed here having travelled by train. Hotel is perfect location as its right beside station. We found it central for all the places we wanted to visit. Our twin room was spacious and very clean. Everything we needed was supplied (shampoo/shower gel, good selection of teabags/coffee. Ironing board/iron and hairdryer). Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.... More

We stayed at this to celebrate our engagement. The staff were great, kind friendly and courteous. The hotel is well kept and they working hard to upgrade the hotel to a great standard..and being a Victorian building it has history and real feel of quality. We stayed a newly refurbished delux room 103 overlooking the Minster. The leisure centre was... More

When we booked the hotel no one told us that the restaurant and bar were being refurshed. The bar has been moved as is obviously a temporary measure and is not fir for purpose. The restaurant was only open for breakfast as far as we could ascertain. The room was good but the overall experience was spoilt by the refurbishment.... More

All the staff were particularly friendly, welcoming, courteous and efficient. The hotel facilities are excellent and so was the food. I particularly enjoyed the pool and the Concierge went to enormous trouble to try to find some suitable entertainment for an older couple in York on a wet Wednesday evening.

Our room itself was nice. Clean and fair standard of maintenance. Hotel undergoing major refurb tho so large areas inaccesible. As a result we were put in a room on lower ground floor next to all sorts of meeting rooms and I think the entrance to kitchens too. Consequently it was very noisy esp. On our 2nd morning when people... More

The hotel's refurbished 3rd floor was underwhelming & our room 309 was small & drab for a 4 star superior room but this is the only reason our stay got 4 and not 5 stars. What makes the hotel is it's amazing staff. The car park attendant on Sat eve (July 25th) & Sunday morning was cheerful & helpful. The... More
