“Nice hotel, fairly quiet location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Visited the hotel on business, got give an room overlooking the far off road and directly by the entrance, so had to suffer hearing the conversations of muppets having a smoke.

Nice room and bathroom, very clean and a comfortable sleep

Breakfast was ok, but nothing special and included in the cost of the room

Room Tip: away from the entrance :)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Had a couple of nights here as a family. Rooms were basic but clean. Beds were very uncomfortable. Breakfast wasn't very good - orange juice was watery and stale rolls.

Reception staff very nice and helpful.

Car park a bit of a pain. Arrived back at 8pm and struggled to get parked due to the carvery next door.

Wouldn't stay here again.

This hotel is well located if you want to combine a visit to York with visits to North and East Yorkshire. If you are just visiting York you may want to look at alternatives. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the rooms functional and comfortable. Breakfast is as advertised and adequate but don't expect anything special.

Room Tip: Seek a room away from the main entrance if you like to sleep with the window open - it can be noisy...

Stayed for 3 nights courtesy of earned priority Club Points.

Rooms clean and Tidy, and hotel is quite quiet.

Breakfast Room is very small for the size of the Hotel so in school holidays have your breakfast early circa 8am to avoid having to queue.

There is a Good and very popular / busy Toby Inn next door. Great for carvery meal or morning Breakfast if you want something with a bit more moisture than the Holiday Inn Express Continental Breakfast.

We used the Hotel as a base for York and for the Moors and Coast.

Car Park is always very busy and shared with the Toby.

Booked as part of a an extended family get away for one night. Wanted a twin rather than a double room was told this was not possible, then asked for some bed linen so we could make up the pull out bed. At first the manager refused as it had not been booked as a family room, couldnt understand if the bed was in the room why he did not want us to use it. He did however eventually agree and came to make the bed up. The room was clean and well kept, no complaints. It was £8 taxi fare to York that went up to £12 at night, so ended up costing quite a bit over the weekend stay. The family was split up all over the hotel and although we had a good night sleep some of them were kept up with noise and banging on door till 5.30 am from a group of lads. We complained and although we got an apologie nothing else. Breakfast was help yourself buffet syle, was fine. Dont think we would stay here again due to location.

I was really impressed with the friendly staff and the facilities. I see a lot of people giving average or low reviews. This is a Holiday Inn Express, not a 5-star hotel. We arrived about 9pm, and were checking out the next morning, so it was perfect for our needs. I know what I can expect from Holiday Inn, and they surpassed those expectations. You can eat at Toby's Carvery next door, or you can choose one of the take-away menus the hotel provides. We opted for take-away. The hotel allows you to use the dining area at any time of the night, so you don't have to eat in your room. You can have a wide range of drinks at any hour. The hotel is a bit outside of the city centre, which saves you money, but it's really close to a park-and-ride centre, so it's easy to get to York.
