Lots of reviews say how awful this place is but it does what it says.... Its a self check in which was no problem & worked well, situated near centre of York with free parking. Yes you have to make your bed & leave it tidy. Takes 5 minutes & was no problem because when we booked the details tell... More

For location in York (with free parking too) you can't beat it. Once you get over the initial surprise at how completely "no frills" the place is it's ok. You have to make your own bed (although you are invited to bring your own bedding and actually this may be a good idea as that which is provided is somewhat... More

It is probably one of the cheapest options you can find in York, but still expensive for what you have. You need to do a self check-in, so no staff at all in the property, only cameras around and a computer screen where they can communicate with you. It is a awkward feeling knowing that you are being watched on... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here because of the price. We had a room with a four poster bed and TV, and only a 15 minute walk to the centre of York. Everything we needed was on a poster in the entrance. We didn't speak/see anyone all weekend which was both good and bad. Would stay again if on a... More

Stayed one night while my daughter was checking out her accommodation in the Uni. Had read the reviews on Trip Advisor so knew what to expect, which helped. This is NOT a hotel - think more your Great Aunt Mildred's house that hasn't been decorated since 1942. Dark mismatched scratched furniture, shabby/dirty carpets, tatty shower room. We went prepared, took... More

Good location but property run down. Environmental concerns used to excuse lack of basic services such as cleaning, provision of soap, reception services. Car parking a problem. Other reviews led me to have low expectations and I wasn't disappointed.

I’d neglected to bring my laptop with me, so had to phone for advice on how to gain access to Astley House, and, to be fair, the person I spoke to was helpful and friendly. But that was the only direct human contact we had throughout our stay. My wife and I went to check out our room with two... More

We originally booked this on the spur of the moment, and for the price I wasn't expecting it to be fantastic and it was far from it!!. We booked through LateRooms and nowhere was there a mention of a 60.00 deposit on top of the room fee! On arrival we were text the door code and given the combination to... More

Good points first, the hotel had reserved me a parking space to the rear and sent me a text with the door code,key safe code and... More
