4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel's refurbished 3rd floor was underwhelming & our room 309 was small & drab for a 4 star superior room but this is the only reason our stay got 4 and not 5 stars. What makes the hotel is it's amazing staff. The car park attendant on Sat eve (July 25th) & Sunday morning was cheerful & helpful. The... More

Location - central, though next to the train station so always a lot of traffic Parking - difficult, more so whilst the overflow car park is being used by the building staff. Rooms - lovely now they have been modernised. However, mine was next to the fire escape so somewhat noisy. Food - only had breakfast but was of a... More

Puzzled by the reviews of late unless it's gone downhill since my last stay it was excellent. A little difficult to find the entrance at first as its right next to the train station but that's when the negatives stop for me.. Plenty of parking available at the hotel, lovely well kept grounds, excellent sized room with everything you need... More

There was complimentry tea coffee and bottled water in the room with 4 mini chocolates. Great view of York Minster and ideally situated. The bed was really comfy and air con was... More

Situated next to the railway station and close to the city and its many sights, this hotel is in a prime position. Staff are friendly and professional, check in was seamless and restaurant food and service was very good. We were unfortunate to have been allocated a very small room without air conditioning or wardrobe hanging space. As refurbishments are... More

Numerous problems. We arrived to no parking available so we were advised to park at the train station. The whole hotel stinks. It smells like a perfume shop with a lingering fart in it. I'm sure they're trying to mask a smell. Our room wasn't available at 3pm as it's meant to be so we waited patiently. We waited around... More

Positioned directly adjacent to the railway station, expect a few audible 'announcements' and screeching trains as they slow down and depart! I am pretty sure this is unavoidable. however, it IS worth asking whether there is such a thing as a 'quieter room'. You can't but help notice the excellent location of this grand hotel, a short and very pleasant... More

The Royal York Hotel affords possible the best position in the city, directly adjacent to the railway station with views across the city to York Minster. Externally it is magnificent, looking for all the world like a grand palace. Inside it is clinging on to its 'quality' tag by its fingertips. This was one of the railway's flagship hotels, designed... More
