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

We don't get away that often so a lot of thought and effort went into planning our little weekend break. The Royal York website is very misleading. I booked online after being impressed with the website it was only nearer the weekend that my husband checked the reviews. I rang the Royal York to cancel and to book somewhere else... More

The Royal York is a very large hotel, and we stayed in the Garden Wing. This is a long walk from Reception, and very confusing when first arriving. The signs need to be better. But, it was a very comfortable room and quiet except for the firework display at 10:15 p.m. for a wedding party - why on earth have... More

After booking a romantic hotel in York to celebrate our 14th Anniversary, we spent a considerable amount of money £229 booking a Junior Suite, we chose this booking because the online booking page clearly shows the quality and standard of the room expected. When we arrived we were given a pokey room on the third floor and after making a... More

We had a lovely night at the Royal York - it's a splendid historic hotel, very impressive and with excellent staff. Our room was very large and comfortable, with a lovely bathroom with a huge bath. We enjoyed the breakfast and had a table from where we could see the Minster, which was a real treat. The staff were wonderful,... More

This should have been an ideal location for a family break in York. This is a beautiful and impressive hotel, which can be accessed directly from York train station. I had booked well in advance directly through the hotel website, and felt I had excellent value for money. Check in was easy and fast. Things went downhill when we made... More

Having read some of the reviews AFTER we booked a room for our trip to York, we were a little apprehensive to say the least! But we did not need to worry. On arrival the outside of the Hotel is very impressive and has parking at £8 a day. We checked into a large and very grand Reception area and... More

Stayed here on Sunday night with my boyfriend. As I had seen the negative comments on here I emailed the hotel to ask for a room away from the train station due to the noise. When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised as our room was clean, very spacious and away from the train station. The staff were all very... More

Stayed here for one night as a group of 4. The first impressions of the hotel were ok but not as expected after looking at the website. The lobby was very impressive and location of the hotel was perfect for exploring the city. Our room was ok but the cleanliness could have been better. On the day of our departure... More
