We arrived around 12.30 pm on the Friday afternoon. Unbeknown to us there was a conference going on in the hotel so all car parking spaces were taken. I had to go into the hotel and ask where we were to park. They directed us to the long stay car park at the train station with a begrudging comment that... More

We stayed at this hotel recently, we only stayed for 1 night but really wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is stunning, the room was absolutely fabulous and the staff were brilliant, so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel

I came to stay for a girly weekend with a friend where we could spoil ourselves and felt that the price we paid (£153/night not including breakfast) meant we could expect a treat. The hotel is in an excellent location but unfortunately this is the reason for the high price, the rooms are very small with dated bathrooms, the decor... More

A very ordinary room for a very high price. We weren't even in the main part of the hotel. There was a very small wardrobe for hanging clothes with no other storage. The extractor fan didn't work. Ordinary self service breakfast and ordinary food in the restaurant. A bit of a rip off really.

Stayed with my partner as a birthday treat in one of the suites; nice, clean, spacious accommodation. Enjoyed the breakfast each day and all dealings with staff were pleasant. Parking was no problem, always spaces available and the hotel was in a good location, near to the town centre.

My friends and I stayed at this hotel last weekend and I have to say this is a really fabulous place, containing many highly impressive features, both internal and external. The hotel's facilities are excellent and my room was spacious and spotless. What I found disappointing, however, was the fact that, on arrival, the "welcome" I received at the front... More

My girlfriend and I had a lovely weekend stay at this hotel, building has character, comfortable rooms and nice bathroom. We also used the swimming pool and spa facilities which were very relaxing. The breakfast was also very good and location is absolutely perfect is arriving by train, as its next door.

We had a very enjoyable stay once we had moved rooms. After checking in we were taken to a small, old & very tired room which was completely different to photo's on the website. After checking with reception, staff were very polite and friendly and offered to move us to a refurbished room which was much nicer and a lot... More

The entrance hall is truly grand - sweeping staircase, chandeliers, massive space. Bedrooms are comfortable. Breakfast was good. Location right next to the station is very convenient. The walk into York city is very short and old York itself is a place for walking.

I stayed two nights for a conference based in the hotel. The hotel is ideally located at the railway station and easy walking distance from the town centre. My room was quite large and the bathroom was huge. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout my stay.
