We stayed for 4 nights in October 2014. It's rated 4 stars but we felt it lacked a little quality . The room was small, the bathroom adequate and the whole acceptable. View from the room was amazing (the Minster!) Breakfast was ok and the staff attentive. The best feature is it's location. Short walk from everything we wanted to... More

With an entrance straight off the Railway Station in York this hotel is great for those who arrive by train - but has large car park if you are driving also. Train is so cheap, £15 from Liverpool - it makes for a very relaxing weekend if you do use the train! Just a short walk into town for the... More

First time at the royal york and very impressed. The building is amazing the corridors and staircases are beautiful, our room was very comfortable with some signs of wear and tear but this did not put us off at all. Our room was hot and the room above had very squeaky floor boards, we were in room 204 which looked... More

Annual business conference held. Impressive hotel that could not have been better situated next to the railway station in the centre of York, only a very few minutes from the attractions and eateries in the city centre. The room and en-suite bathroom were on the small side, but perfectly adequate. The conference facilities were good, although the room was very... More

This was my fourth trip to York on business, and the fourth place I'd stayed at. With this in mind I'd definitely recommend the Royal York hotel, both as a place to stay and as a meeting venue. I must say that the staff were consistently brilliant; from the reception to the concierge and events team. I even managed to... More

Loved this hotel, room service quick, we stayed in the suite and it was amazing, a lovely view of the gardens, hotel staff very attentive, and a bargain in price for a 4* hotel. I would recommend it to everybody! Very happy lady here x

I had a very enjoyable overnight stay at this hotel with my son and would gladly return. The staff are very friendly and helpful, I was particularly impressed with the concierge service. The location of the hotel is ideal for rail passengers and the special entrance from the station to the hotel makes guests feel like VIPs. The pool was... More
