This is a wonderful place, close to the train station, parking available, if needed. There is a cafe on the ground floor where you can be served breakfast Continental style or extra for Full English. There are some nuns still living there but it is run by other people. I think a lot of churches use it for retreats. If... More

Looking for somewhere clean, but not expensive; non-smoking, no loud music from guests, no piped music in lifts etc, and definitely no loud parties and drunken revelers? Then without a doubt this is a good place to stay in York; and in my opinion after several visits, definitely the best. Only a short stroll from the railway station. Run by... More

I stayed one night at the Bar Convent in a single en suite room. The room was great with lovely big shower and everything you need. One little improvement would be heavier curtains, as the room was too light for my liking. The big area to improve is the cafe. While the food was lovely, it is far too expensive.... More

As others have said, this is not a modern boutique hotel, but is welcoming and (in the best sense of the word) homely. Stayed in a comfortable single room with tea- making facilities and good quality clock radio. Was not en suite, but facilities just across the corridor so not a problem. There is a common room with TV, and... More

Bright and cheery quite rooms, just outside of historic walls. LOCATION This B&B is a safe 5 minute walk from the York train station and about a 15 minute walk to the tourist attractions. There are 2 pubs across the street from the B&B and a 5 minute walk to other pubs and shops. CONDITION The B&B itself is average,... More

Not a modern hotel - or part of a large national chain, but if you'd like to stay in a large, very old and interesting building with an interesting history, then this is the place for you. The old wooden floors are creaky, and the odd sash window is painted shut, some of the décor is old fashioned, but their... More

Excellent location only a short walk to the centre. No parking available which was a little bit of a pain. Room clean and beds comfortable although we found the room too hot, even though radiator off, and the window was painted shut and we were unable to open.

We stayed at the Bar Convent for business [and also hired meetings rooms]. The location is excellent, the building is quirky & interesting. Some areas may look a little 'tired' but it's all very clean, easily as comfortable as the big 'chain' hotels, & with extras they'd never provide. There are kitchen facilities, so it'd be possible to heat up... More

A very comfortable room, brilliant location and a very interesting place in its own right A wonderful chance to meet the religious sisters who live there and take a tour around this fascinating place which is still alive with Christianity. Bells ring for services, walls show paintings and give glimpses of the past history of this place. And people act... More
