Tea and cake for 2 came to more than £10. We considered this far too expensive as compared with later in the day at a city centre restaurant we had lunch for 2, plus 2 glasses of wine for the same price.

Just outside The Micklegate, car parking round the corner at Nunnery Lane )Thursdays free. 15 minute walk to The Shambles, 10 min walk from The National Railway... More

Clean, tidy room and very helpful welcome from the duty staff. The Bar Convent is centrally located close to the top of Micklegate and a short walk from the train station and a slightly longer, but certainly do-able walk to the centre of York. The room I had - St Marks - was very roomy and comfortable. The place does... More

Only a short walk from the train station & the town center, the convent provides an exceedingly clean & peaceful haven, especially nice for a single traveller. Easy to find & within walking distance of everything. Price is moderate & the food delicious & simple.

A really nice location near the main attractions. It has an absolutely beautiful chapel (along with an old priest hiding hole and St Margaret Clitherow's relic). Furthermore it has a lovely Cafè and gift shop and is well worth a visit. The Staff are friendly. It has a museum also.

Clean tidy, close to town and the train station, staff very helpful. Did not give it 5stars as minor faults with decor. Was allowed to check in early. There was plenty of bedding and everything was so handy for York and all its attractions. Will be returning soon
