We had read other reviews before arriving at the Queens for a 5 day coaching tour. On arrival we were very impressed with check in and when we saw the room we were amazed. The room was large, very well decorated and spotless. The only downside was the lack of air con or fan in hot weather. The meals were... More

We went to York for a couple of days midweek break recently and chose The Queens for its location. We had stayed before late last year. From past experience we chose not to partake of the buffet breakfast as it had been a bit of a disaster last time. Also, there are quite a few places to get a decent... More

we actually won this break in a competition but I couldn't have wished for better if I had paid, The room was amazing maybe a little worn in places but it is after all an old building, we had a brilliant river view and a really comfy bed and pillows, The breakfast was very varied and you could eat as...

Very clean, very comfortable and perfect location for walking to all attractions with minimal fuss. Staff are polite and very helpful. Breakfast at £8.95 didn't appeal to us with small children but there are lots of places offering very reasonably priced breakfast within minutes. It was baking hot during our visit so we opted for the Yates just across the... More

Mid week break on a discount package: river view with breakfast and in an easy strolling distance of the historic heart of York (and the Railway Museum!). Great! Staff professional and helpful, breakfast adequate, though ergonomics leave a bit to be desired (quart jug of milk to add milk to your tea; everyone milling around the tea/hot water/ juices required...

We booked this hotel through Amazon local and were told it was only a two star rating, so we weren't expecting a lot, but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at 11am to be allowed to check in and more surprised when we opened the door to our room. It looked right on the river and the busy quayside across... More

We have stayed at the Queens Hotel on a few occasions and have always had no problems. The staff are really nice and friendly. The room was very hot, there is no air conditioning so be prepared. I did ask for a fan but they were all given out, but managed to get one on my last day. The breakfast... More

Visited here with hubbie im May on a superbreak. Room was spacious and had a great view overlooking the river, although one complaint was the state of the curtains, these had holes in the lining which at night when the lights were coming in it lit up the room. The hotel included breakfast which had a choice of a cooked... More
