Stayed here for an Saturday evening. A last minute weekend in York meant that we couldn't be too fussy about accommodation. (If you are planning a trip book fairly in advance.) The location drew us in; overlooking the River Ouse, 2 minutes stroll to all the Cities Jewels, and balconies to eat breakfast and enjoy a drink. Unfortunately the imagery... More

We were a coach party of 40+ and were met and seen to our rooms very efficiently. Meals were similarly dealt with in a very organised way and the food was very good. The hotel is in a great position, within easy walking distance from York city centre and with a frontage to the River Ouse, so many bedrooms look... More

Stayed here recently on a groupon two night deal....excellent value for money and stayed with two children. The hotel overlooks river Ouse and is ideally located for all attractions/shops/pubs/restuarants. Upon arrival, the welcome was warm and friendly. The room was spacious and spotless and everything you could expect. Comfortable bed, quality linen on beds and childrens beds were quality and... More

Myself and my family stayed here for 2 nights to attend a family members wedding. The public areas are very nice. Including the breakfasts which were fresh and appetising with plenty of choice. The room was nice but a bit small for 3 of us. There was a double bed and a small mattress on the floor type bed for... More

Booked this hotel as it was advertised as having parking, however upon checking in I was told you had to prebook a space as only 19 spaces to service 80 rooms, this was fully booked so had to park in an ncp 5 mins walk away which cost us £18. Check in was swift and staff... More

Great location for all the main attractions. Alongside the river and across from the main boat trips. Food was very good with a good choice and an adequate breakfast buffet. Room service was frequent and cleanliness was 9/10.

Ideal for sightseeing York, it's all on your doorstep. Hotel basic but clean. Room seemed a little tired but ok. Paid extra for car parking space with hotel, which let us use it before check in as people had already left that morning. Not tried food as we ate out for our short stay. Main issue was with how sensitive... More
