Everyone was very nice and helpful. It is also so close to the train station you could throw a rock from the door and hit the station. The room had a wonderful view of the minster for a value price. It is very close to all of the major attractions as well.

We picked this hotel because of it's proximity to the railway station and railway museum. It was all we expected and more, the reception staff were exceptional, very helpful, very polite and very professional. Breakfast was superb with a choice of a full English, a variety of cereals, cold meats or cheese. The room was a little on the small... More

Stayed for a night and couldn't have had a better location the staff were first class and the rooms though a little pokey were clean and nice. As with many of these old hotels a revamp would make the world of difference but I guess that's a huge job!

Some problems with the water but quickly looked at and not a major problem.The breakfast was very varied but drinks not very hot.For... More

Just back from a 2 night break. This hotel oozes old world charm. It is next door to York station and is therefore very central. The rooms were adequate. Be sure to ask for fluffy dressing gowns and slippers. The breakfast is very good and is served till 11am. So a lie in if needed.

A large impressive building, near to the station and a short walk to the city, the bedrooms were a decent size, bathroom was spacious, but I felt it was old , and overpriced for what we got. The breakfast room was large ,noisy and impersonal it felt like I was in a works canteen and the food was just ok.... More

We LOVED this hotel. The location cannot be beat as you can walk from the train station easily. The staff at this hotel is top notch. Our room was in the newer section which looked out over the impressive gardens and the front of this gorgeous hotel. We were checked in by Sophie at the front desk who was a... More

I have to say, I think some of the reviewers on here must have been staying somewhere else as we had a fantastic experience at this hotel!! We stayed for my brother's wedding at the weekend and couldn't have been more happy with the setup of the hotel, the friendliness of the staff and the rooms. I got ready with... More

Have met a friend here for the past four or five years and stayed for one night. Have had rooms overlooking the Minster and although small, acceptable for one night and room overlooking the wall, again acceptable for one night. Both quite pleasant. This time I booked a room saying three persons, thinking I would get perhaps a larger room.... More

I had an excellent experience at this hotel for my birthday recently, the hotel is beautiful, the room (one of the suites overlooking the Minster) was large, had bags of character and was also practical, lovely night sleep in super king-size bed, spa was quiet and clean. Staff couldn't do enough to help. My husband noted that the shower could... More
