Stayed here for 1 night, when meeting up with our daughter for the weekend. York was very busy, at it was horse racing day. We arrived early midday on a Saturday, which was fortunate, given the limited number of car parking spaces in the facility opposite the hotel, for which we had to pay £10 for a day.

I looked at other hotels for this overnight stay, but couldn't find a reason not to stay here.It is clean and comfortable and an ideal situation a short walk from the attractions in York.

Hotel ideally situated within the city walls with parking available for £10 per day. Bedrooms were well appointed with tea and coffee facilities and wi fi access. Beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom spacious and immaculately maintained. Breakfast was good.

This hotel is nice and clean, as are the rooms, however the room we got was tiny. After finding a place to put two suitcases we had no room to move. We had to jump over bags to get out the door. In saying this the room and bathroom were both clean, and wifi was free, which was a bonus.... More

When we got to it, our room was comfortable, spacious and clean with all the trimmings we had been promised. (Tea and coffee facilities, toiletries and luxury towels etc.) It was however noisy as it faced the road, and the window could not be opened by any reasonable distance on a very close humid night. We had paid in advance.... More

Located within the city walls it is a short walk to most of the sights. The staff is friendly and efficient. As to the bedroom the pluses were the bed and free Wi-Fi and the minuses were no AC and a sitting chair at the cramped desk rather than a desk chair. I felt like a Lilliputian. The bathroom was...
