...unless you're vertically challenged, and like cramped, stuffy, noisy, poor-value accommodation. The bed was hard, the bedding was cheap, the pillows lumpy. The bathroom was so small that you could use the toilet, the sink, and the shower at the same time. At £95 (no breakfast included), you expect this in central London, but not in a place like York. We got no sleep because of the trains rumbling past (window open because the room was so hot) and woke up feeling stressed and unhappy - not really what you want on holiday. Thankfully, the helpful concierge Dave managed to find us a bigger room for our second night, which is why I've rated this 4 stars. It was really comfortable, with plenty of space, a bathroom made for humans, and much nicer bedding. We were advised that all the standard rooms were the same, which is why we won't stay here again. If you choose to upgrade, there is plenty to recommend the place: it's a short, easy walk from all the attractions, there is free parking, the breakfast is good (but at £10, you can do better in town). Dinner was also very good, in terms of quality and value, with very good service. The decor is lovely. We love York, and will be back, but will choose somewhere that offers better value for money.
