Stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. We were in room 3, large one bedroom apartment with a tiny balcony overlooking the River Foss. Very spacious, extremely comfortable, central and as has been said before, lots of complimentary drinks and food. Couldn't fault it, would stay again without question.

Perfect accomation, very very central, fantastic facilities, took my mum and sister as a thankyou after my wedding. Lovely for a special occasion of any kind, even stayed in and cooked one night in the lovely kitchen. M & S is just 2 mins walk away. The fresh fuit & bread and alcohol were a great bonus.

Absolutely the best accommodation we have had through-out Europe andUK. Fully equipped kitchen(just like home). Champagne on arrival, free drinks, and fruit and supplies to cook your own breakfast. Great view from room 3 to the swans and ducks on the river. Free parking and very central, could walk everywhere with ease.thoroughly recommend, it is worth the money!

We stopped in room 4 with beamed ceiling and a four poster bed. A real boutique hotel with all the equipment you could ever need although I did find the scissors to be a little blunt for cutting the sausages (the breakfast things where all very nice) The location is just magical right on the river foss. We changed the... More

And if you are traveling by car,... More
