Only 1 chair available and this had holes in upholstery. Pillows like pancakes, no spares. Bathroom - 32 and half cm gap to slide into shower, which has lino tiles... More

Despite protests including those of another guest we were not admitted. We found a room in a pleasant and extremely friendly nearby pub where the land... More

No soap available in bathroom. Had to go and buy some. No plug in Vanity basin so couldn't fill with water. No... More

There are a couple of quirky things about this place like the self check in/check out and the fact you never see any staff. But it wasn't an issue just a new experience. I was sent a sms prior to check in with all the info required to get into our room, luckily we checked our messages because had forgotten... More

A great low cost option - you get what you pay for, it is comfy and slightly dated. Everything ran smoothly and self check in was a good idea. Saved me a fortune in my stay in York. Take your own towel and soap/shower gel/shampoo.
