“Great Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

On arrival we were disappointed with general appearance of the hotel, public areas where old and tired looking, but the room was beautiful, very clean and spacious and the staff were extremely helpful. Breakfast great with plenty of choice. I think once the public areas are updated it will be a great hotel.

The location is excellent. Very quiet but so close to everything, all in walking distance. Free parking is a definite bonus. The staff are very friendly, helpful & efficient which is a necessity for a pleasant stay. Breakfast was excellent Our room was clean & tidy, the problem was it was at the very top floor. Too many stairs to climb which is a shame. Still enjoyed our stay there & York is a lovely place.

Excellent location, literally a couple of minutes from the Minster itself and all the shops, shambles etc. Superb breakfast and all the staff were friendly and very helpful staff. To top it all the hotel has private parking available as well. Absolutely recommended to all and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor and was quiet.

This hotel is ideally located for York city centre. Only 5 minutes walk from the Minster, the hotel offers free parking, so is perfect for a city getaway. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful both at reception and in the dining room at breakfast time. Rooms were clean and well appointed and certainly at the rear of the hotel, very quiet. The hotel has clearly undergone extensive refurbishment and the rooms are furnished in a bright modern style but still in keeping with the old part of the building to the front.
The breakfast was outstanding. A comprehensive selection of items cooked to order in addition to cereals, croissant and other cold items. Nice to see local produce being used!
I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Minster Hotel again as it offered a high standard of accommodation as well as value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms in the annexe to the rear of the property are lovely and quiet

The Minster is in a great location for exploring York, 5 minutes walk down the road and you are at the city wall gate, and york minster cathedral is the other side, which then leads into the shopping area and the shambles.

We were in a newer part of the hotel at the back, the room was spacious modern and clean, view overlooked the car park. We stayed one night and found it really comfortable and quiet.

Cooked breakfast orders were taken and cooked fresh whilst you helped yourself to cereal, juice etc. The breakfast was excellent and served in a nice dining room, some background music would of been nice though.

Would definately recommend this hotel we had a lovely visit to York,

Nice easy walking distance to everything. Good room size with four poster bed and lovely bathroom with a bath. Unfortunately, we were out in the Lodge which is separate to the main hotel and in the car park. The people in the room next door must have either been deaf and their tv was on so loud or there was very little sound insulation between rooms.
The staff could not have been friendlier, they were all lovely and the breakfast was very good. If we were staying in York again, I would certainly return but perhaps ask to be within the main hotel next time.
