I stayed here with my daughter, we phoned the hotel prior to booking and got a great deal including overnight stay bed and breakfast and afternoon tea. We were looking for a comfortable hotel, near to the centre of York. From the minute we entered the hotel, conveniently situated next to the train station we were impressed. The hotel is... More

We stayed here in December 2013 and upgraded to one of the suites on arrival. It was a lovely room with amazing views over to the minster and surrounding areas of York. Well worth the upgrade. The room was so big we could have played football in there. Would definitely stay again. Lovely entrance at Xmas too

Located right next to the train station. Looks good from the outside, but warn and dated on the inside. Plumming was an issue with difficult to flush toilets and max temperature in the shower being lukewarm (although piping hot from sink). The lobby was crowded and loud with the bar and many convention rooms opening to it. The staff at... More

Hotel gardens are well maintained and have games laid out for kids and big kids too. The restaurant is in dire need of redecoration and refurbishment. Curtains are very poor torn and need a good clean in fact... More

I stayed here for a 3 night break in room 100 which was a lovely room. It overlooked the gardens and the Minster. It was very quiet. The room itself was spacious with a decent bathroom. Staff were helpful and yes they were busy at checking out time in the morning but they were very quick and helpful once you... More

I decided to take a punt and try the mystery hotel offer just for fun. Now I know why it was a mystery. Instead of being intelligent and giving us a decent room so that we would return and introduce others to the hotel, we got the bargain basement and will not be making recommendations. Only thing really going for... More

The hotel is situated in an ideal location, close to transport, and in the centre of town. The grounds are beautiful and the building is amazing. My wife and I visited the hotel the night before a local wedding and then reception back at the hotel, so we only made a brief stay. The breakfast was great and the service... More

Location is great - literally 30 seconds from York station and at most 10 mins walk to city visitor attractions. The one slight complaint we had was a mouldly and scaled... More

The staff here could not have been more helpful. I needed to change rooms as I found the first too noisy being roadside, no problem. The second room wasn't wonderful as it was in the new wing and too small and modern for my son's liking! No problem said the staff and kindly moved us again to a super twin... More
