We were kept at the front door in the rain ringing the bell for about 5 minutes. Our welcome was not friendly. The hotel was in a good position to visit the city, next door to the bus station. We felt the hotel was very shaby.

Newly taken over in July 2011 by George and Jenny. The hotel staff was very friendly, couldn't be more helpful. The reception is not 24hrs however they do have a call out facility. We arrived late and upon contacting the hotel George advised that he would wait up for us till after the tattoo to check in. On arrival George... More

This is an old-fashioned hotel, but friendly and in a central position. The rooms were large and very clean, There were a lot of stairs to get up though, and I didn't see a lift so would possibly not suit those with walking difficulties. Everywhere was easy to get to and the buses stopped on York Place to get to... More

The hotel was over priced and in a bad state of repair. We had a room in the basement and below either the kitchen or the dining room and were woken up at 7am and couldn't get back to sleep. The only thing going for this hotel was the location.

The York House Hotel is not a "frills" hotel - there is no lift and the rooms need a little updating. However, the staff more than makes up for these slight shortcomings. George, the manager, is accommodating and very friendly. At the last minute, we added an additional traveler with our group - without skipping a beat, the management and... More

We stayed for two nights in the York House. The room was very simple, maybe a little bit shabby, but clean. The television had only one working canal and no sound. We do not recognize the rude and impolite attitude of the staff in other reviews. On the contrary, they were all very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was not... More

We were a group of 4 friends, staying in the En Suite family room. The room was comfortable, clean and reasonably spacious. On the arrival, the old gentleman at the front desk was really friendly and helpful!!! As I had read the previous reviews, his attitude was completely a big surprise to us!!!! The location is quite close to the... More

We stayed here and just could not believe the service and attitude of the staff. We were just told what room we were staying in and then the manager walked off. We had to go up an down various stair wells before we found our room. The room was a good size but very shabby. We noticed that the sheets... More

Just as I've said a terrible place. The staff and manager are the rudest I have ever had the misfortune to meet. Could go on but it was so bad I do not want to waste any more of my time. Just avoid the place.
