Visited the hotel for a one night break in March. It was on a dinner bed and breakfast basis and we paid £109.
Parking was fine, check in was easy, and the reception staff very friendly. We were a little early, so sat in the bar whilst waiting for our room. Drinks were a little expensive, £6 for a small house wine and £3 for a hot chocolate.
Room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We were given a garden view room. Had the usual, hairdrier, iron/ironing board, toiletries and flat screen TV. It had a minibar, which was empty so you could keep some of your own drinks cool.
We used the leisure facilities, which were okay for a quick swim and jacuzzi, but you wouldnt really stay in there all day.
We had evening meal included in the price of the hotel, so wasnt expecting much, but you were given £25 per person which you could use for either the set menu or al la carte menu. I have to say, the quality of the food was superb. We did have a mix up with a couple of the courses and the bill, but the staff were fantastic and sorted this out without any fuss. They couldn't do enough for you. Total bill before deduction was £80.50 and we had three courses each, a bottle of rose (£24) and two beers (Pint and half of Stella £6.50)
Breakfast the next day was a buffet, with everything you would expect and more. Even had an area where they would cook you fresh pancakes.
The location of the hotel is great. Not to far from York city centre, but I would say you'd need to drive into York or get a bus. Its a bit too far to walk if its cold or raining. Car parks in York are quite expensive, with central ones costing around £2.20 per hour. The hotel its self has a rear terrace area with views of York racecourse. You could imagine that on race day, it would be one of the best places to stay.
Overall, great hotel, good location, lovely staff, would visit again.
