We love York and it is becoming an annual visit to celebrate my wife's birthday. I thought I would treat her to a posh hotel and remembered seeing the Royal York which looked very grand. I booked it in September at a cost of just under £280 for two nights. We arrived and the reception area looked as impressive as... More

i didn't know that a two-London costs so expensive. Anyway, I came to York for work. 50m from the train station is the Royal York Hotel. Very impressive building, a large lobby and tall, courteous service. I booked a single room and got a small room with a small bed. It looked as inappropriate initial impression you get in the...

I visited this hotel for a conference/meeting and had lunch here. The staff were attentive and it's a great venue, lunch was also very good and tastey. I will be returning soon and I will stay over night.

York is a wonderful city, full of history and I would recommend a visit there to anyone. The Royal York Hotel is obviously part of that history but very much long overdue an overhaul of the rooms and services. The public areas, service and breakfast are very good but the rooms and bathrooms are desperately in need of a revamp... More

This hotel is beautiful. It's grand. Reading other reviews I was worried. Personally on holiday I don't check the carpets tiles etc as previous poor reviewers have. Our room is lovely very clean views of the station which isn't a problem as it's a station hotel. The restaurant food was beautiful. The staff are very attentive and are always ready... More

Our first visit to York, me for Nat Rly Museum and my wife for St Nicholas Market and York itself. We booked a standard room and were pleasantly surprised by it's size and happy to be on the top floor. Comfortable beds, excellent facilities and it was good to find the character of the building has been retained, including the... More

We arrived on the Saturday and the reception was very busy, however we were checked in quickly and efficiently. When we went to the car park the ticket machine wasn't working so we couldn't get in and by the time I got to the hotel reception to ask about it they'd already been out to fix it which was very...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on 14/12/14 for my 40th birthday. One making this booking I requested a room with a garden view stating that it was for my birthday. When we checked in they had upgraded our room! We went for a look around York and when we came back we had a bottle of Cava... More

Stayed over in York Sunday to Monday to see the city for the first time with my wife. The hotel looks very grand from the out side and is in a good location next to the train station, and holds plenty of parking. It's just a short work into the hub of the city. We decided to stay here as... More

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here. The junior suite is amazing, a huge comfy bed and very spacious room. Posh toiletries too! After a full days shopping on the 2nd day we returned to find the bed had been sprinkled with rose petals which was a lovely suprise. The festive decorations all over the hotel are beautiful....
