“Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

My family of five stayed here for one night to break up the journey from Scotland to London. The welcome was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and very clean. Unfortunately, the weather was sweltering and the room was hot, but this would probably not normally a problem. The beds were uncomfortable though and we could feel the springs. Breakfast was great and having parking at the back was perfect. It was a handy location and the town centre was only a short walk. It is situated on a busy road and the traffic was quite noisy. The man who was running the place was so lovely though.

We have twice stayed at Palm Court. The welcome was first rate, food excellent and rooms spacious, warm and clean. Prices are very competitive. There is also a large very comfortable guest lounge, something many establishments do not have.
We will always check availability here when visiting York and would not hesitate in recommending this excellent B&B.

Room Tip: we were given the same excellent room both visits.

Palm court good base to visit York. Traditional English B&B. Very welcomed on arrival. Nothing too much trouble. Rooms lovely with lots of space. Nicely decorated and very clean. Very nice breakfast to start your day. Car parking to the rear. Good location to walk to the centre. Would recommend and will stay again.

We have recently returned from another excellent stay at The Palm Court. The hotel is conveniently located, being only a five minute walk from the town centre. We always receive a warm welcome from the owners, the bedroom was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We look forward to our next visit.

This is a traditional English B&B in its decor and treats you to a lovely warm welcome from the owners. Close to the walled city centre and with ample parking at the back, Palm Court is a great base to explore York.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast very good, with Nutella being a nice touch that was much appreciated by my partner.

We have stayed at the palm court hotel 4 times now as it is close to our family in York. the rooms are really clean and spacious and the owners Nigel and Helen make us feel special and welcome every time we return. the hotel is centrally located and within easy walking distance from the town center.the breakfast are hearty, well cooked and tasty.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel; it is not a plush; fancy space, but it is welcoming, homely and clean. you can be assured of great service and many happy returns!
