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

I stayed here for 1 night and I will be going back on my next visit. It is great value, in great location about 2 minutes walk from the centre of York and the Staff are really friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was good and you can upgrade to a cooked breakfast for £5.50

Booked in for an overnight stay while in York for a Quilters' Guild course at The Quilt Museum. Stayed in St Lawrence, a generous twin bedded room with a nice view over the garden. Spotlessly clean, next to a bathroom- I had sole use- and very comfy, I enjoyed memories of my happy days at a convent school- yes, it... More

I needed reasonably priced room for the night close to The National Railway Museum prior to attending a function the following day. Initially, I found the Bar Conventr based on price and location and it ticked all the boxes on paper. I regularly stay away on business and the first priority is always to get a good nights sleep. Now,... More

Adequate accommodation in a convenient location. Clean, but lacking in some basics such as bedside tables. Pillows had seen better days. No croissants available at breakfast and no attempt was made to apologise. No black teabags available in the room.

If you are looking for somewhere different from bland, chain hotels, then this is you place. I recently stayed here and found the welcome and service received was faultless. Ideally suited for the city centre and close to railway station. Room had all I needed. I had a room without en suite, but no distance to loo or shower. Nice... More

I was booked in here by The Quilters Guild whilst attending a meeting at the Quilt Museum in York. I stayed in St Pauls which was a double room with a wash basin in the room and a shower and loo en suite. Everywhere was extremely clean, the bed very comfortable, the breakfast excellent. Staff helpful. It was a peaceful... More

We stayed for two nights in the St. Ignatius room. Although not large, this has a comfortable double bed plus a single bed with a modern en suite shower and WC and was clean and warm. The only snag was that the sash window was tricky to open.The full English breakfast in the café in the hotel was delicious and... More

Had a lovely lunch here. Ingredients were really fresh and a nice selection to choose from whether you are wanting a light bite or a cooked meal. The surroundings are lovely too and I'm going to make sure I have a look around the museum next time I'm in York!
