We arrived at the walmgate not expecting to much as we managed to book it really cheap. The hotel has a private car park and is very easy to spot from the road. After ringing the doorbell, we were greeted by a very polite chinese lady. She showed us to our room which was very large and had everything that... More

We arrived mid afternoon, so the resturant was closed. We rang the door bell and after 15 minutes or so was answered. The proprietor had very little understanding of the english language. No reception point, so that was the last we saw of the staff!! We ventured out into York and had a truely amazing experience. We then returned to... More

Very strange set up and the website is misleading. You check in in the bar of the chinese restaurant plenty of staff (most are very polite) however the English is poor and trying to find out any information is difficult. We were left waiting to check in for quite some time. We were not provided with a receipt and were... More

I would second all the previous reviewers comments, but at least we weren't bothered by too much noise in the hotel, although the noise from the traffic outside was awful during the night (not helped by...

I have to agree with my fellow report-writers for this hotel. If I had to put it in words, I would say that this hotel is 'OK'. It is not the kind of place where I would recommend to my friends, however there was nothing major to complain about. My suggestion would be that if you have nowhere to go... More

This bed and breakfast is just on a side of Royal Dragon Cantonese restaurant, reception is right inside the restaurant. You might find it difficult to find an entrance-it's just from the car park side, behind the building. The place is alright, looks a bit small when you enter but rooms are ok, quite big and clean, bathroom and toilets... More

Don't even think about booking up here no matter how desperate. In all my years visiting places around the world, I have never come across anything quite like this. No apparent point of contact when we arrived. Entrance door had security key pad with number needed to get in......but it was open anyway! When we arrived back at our room... More
