We had booked a junior suite as after reading reviews thought this would ensure we had a nice room. Entrance and lobby of hotel very grand and an impressive staircase. Opened the door to our suite and I was immediately let down! Room was at front of hotel with lovely view of minister but despite lovely high ceiling and a... More

However, the pool and spa was great and was nice that... More

We were able to check in early and on check out were able to leave our luggage until we were departing for the... More

Stayed here before, this time really disappointed as this hotel has so much potential. The good points; staff are really Friendly and the breakfast was excellent. Now for the bad points; rooms so need to be kept up to date. The hotel has so much history, with the communal parts being quite well looked after. Our first room in the... More

Our first surprise was that the front door to the hotel is only steps away from the train station. The room was spacious, though the vies overlooked said train station. We were concerned that there might be train noise but there was none. The staff was accommodating in every way. The building shows some wear in corners but nothing that... More

We had contemplated staying at the Cedar Court nearby but chose the Royal and what a mistake. We arrived early (1230) to enable... More

We booked, online, one night in a family room. When we checked in we were directed to the garden wing. This is a long walk past staff rooms, function rooms, equipment rooms etc. the room was Ok but in a chain hotel way, it also faced out to the post office depot across the road! Not the royal York style... More
