Eleven of us (family birthday celebration) stayed at the Royal York Hotel from 27 to 29 June 2014. We had two family rooms, a double and a twin and we were very impressed with the quality of the rooms and the facilities. The restaurant was fantastic - we had dinner on the Saturday night and we all loved the food... More

Upon first entering the room it looked nice and clean but it was dated in parts. We had marks on the celing and paint... More

Had to wait 2 hours for our room to be ready along with several others all waiting in the reception area. Not sure where the " luxury " part comes in or why they have 4 stars whole place needs to be refurbished. The hotels charges you to park in there carpark £6 overnight, outrageous!

Overall we were very happy with our stay for the price we paid. We had a very good sized family room with fabulous view of the gardens and Minster (130). The bathroom was Ok but feel with a little more expense could have been very nice. It seemed they had replaced the toilet and wash basin but kept the old... More

Enjoyed our two night stay. Swift check in. Our room was in the extension which felt miles away from the heart of the hotel. Complicated to find and the trek would not have suited those with mobility problems. Room ok...just. View out to Post Office depot and was fairly noisey. Clean enough with comfy beds and nice towels. Breakfast lovely.... More

Just spent 3 days, one meal in restaurant very good, worth paying for better room, 200 very nice. Bar could do with face lift, however seating in reception area very good. Only complaint had to leave one day early, reception told first thing but still charged for fourth night.

Start with the good - room we were eventually given was OK, despite it being almost on the railway platform and hearing every wheel of train brakes and railway announcements it was 100% better than room originally allocated. Location of hotel ideal and onsite parking was a bonus. Breakfast was fine, nothing special but ok. Now the bad - arrived... More

The Royal York Hotel is a lovely hotel situated ten minutes walk from the centre of York and right next to the railway station. Although if you look closely the décor needs a little touch up from general impression it is beautiful and the room that my friend and I received was huge. Our window looked onto the train station,... More

Booked the hotel through Hotwire's Secret Deals so got a great rate - and am glad that I did. The hotel is right next to the station which is so convenient. I was allocated a room in the "garden wing" - this is a modernish wing adjoining the conference/events space. It is quite a long walk from the reception and... More

It is regretful to read that your room did not meet your expectations, however I am happy to advise that our new owners... More

Whilst the staff in the Royal York Hotel are helpful, generally the hotel is very tired and requires updating. We had a large family room, which was very spacious. It is relatively close to the City centre and next door to the railway station (though I did not hear one train).
