We stayed in the Royal York a few years ago when it was a Le Meridian and just undergoing a refit, we were keen to return to sample the improvements. We stayed the Sunday of the August Bank Holiday weekend and had a room overlooking the gardens with a lovely view of the Minster, it couldn't have been better First... More

Stayed here at the start of the school holidays with my mum and son for a two night break. Most things about our experience were very good and as per individual tastes some tweaks would have further enhanced the stay. Very impressed with the two double beds and the size of our living space - proper beds not sofa beds.... More

We stayed here for just one night at a cost of £150 the room was small for a super deluxe but was clean and tidy but was on the 2nd floor facing the Gadens that was nice but the problem is they chose to put us in that part of the hotel nearest to the train line and directly above... More

Cleaners leave cleaning equipment in room. DO not cater for vegetarians, vegans, gluten free or people who want decaf products. Staff are arrogantly rude and proud of the fact they can not help you. You pay in advance so as the hotel has your money there is no incentive to give a good service.

I visited the hotel as part of a group of about 40 people for a conference. My room was on the top floor and was like an oven. It was very hot throughout the night and the fan i found in the room made no difference at all. I dread to think what it would have been like on a... More

I stayed here alone in a twin room for a conference. The room was well equipped with lovely large soft bathrobe and slippers, a good range of tea and coffee Etc as well as an iron and ironing board. The linen on the bed was good quality and the bed comfortable. However, the bathroom was disappointing with the toilet crammed... More

The hotel venue was lovely, the team worked really hard to make it a special day. The evenings festivities were well contained, so there was no impact on guests retiring for the night. I've stayed in hotels where the disco has kept me awake until the early hours, but not here.

I realise this is a Victorian hotel and it is impressive from the exterior and in the foyer. However, to command these kind of prices, it needs some investment in its room decor and utilities. The water stopped mid shower, which wasn't fun. The bed was so soft, it almost folded in two when you sat on it, resulting in... More
