Decided to have a couple of nights in York so booked the best room type the hotel offered which was the suite. Check in was straightforward and we pointed in the direction of our suite which was on the first floor, immediately in front of the stairway. The room is equipped with a fridge (empty), tea/coffee, hot choc and a... More

This a grand old hotel adjacent to the station which makes access if travelling by train really easy. It is a short walk to the city centre and all the attractions and is reasonably priced. The service is good with friendly staff being willing to assist and provide advice. Breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of food on offer.... More

Just returned from a Christmas shopping and foodie break in York with my best friend. We booked a standard twin which was perfect for our needs, plenty of space in the room, lots of sockets for our phones and hair appliances and very comfortable beds. The hotels is extremely well placed, it's adjacent to the train station and only a... More

A really great place to stay. It has the atmosphere of a bygone era and reminds one a little of the Budapest Hotel (as seen in the film), so goodness knows what is going on behind the scenes. However, the place is clean; the food is good and the staff (mostly)accommodating. The desk always seems rather busy, which can be... More

there were several other companies holding seminars that day.the staff coped brilliantly.The facilities were excellent and the meal laid on for lunch has to be one of the best amongst the places I have been to for a conference or training day.

Myself & husband stayed here for romantic break as we love York. We usually stay at du vin but as we booked late there were no availability so this was our 2nd choice. I have to say I was a little apprehensive with the reviews being so split but I really was impressed. It's very grand and opulent, I love... More

I've just come back from a 1 nights stay at this hotel. It is very convenient for the the railway station - you literally walk to the end of platform 2 & you can enter the hotel through its back entrance. It is also very well situated for the city centre, but unfortunately, my stay was very short, I didn't... More

Spent 4 nights here with my partner and had a very restful time. The standard of the room was excellent, clean and very well presented. The bed was very comfortable (if a little squeaky!) and we both slept very well. The pool and sauna are a good size and ideal for a little exercise and we did not meet a... More

This hotel is so convenient right by the station, it's quite dated but still very nice. My negative is it lacks colour, pictures, plants that sort but the room was beautiful, bed was better than home! Very clean, Staff very nice. Ate in the restaurant, it's not well lit and the portions were quite light although very tasty leaving us... More

This was our first stay at the Royal York and it was everything that we wanted for our 2 night stay. We've visited York lots of times and this time decided to go by train. The Royal York is perfect for train travellers as the hotel is an integral part of the station. We arrived an hour before check in... More
