I was considering four stars as the decor was lovely, and location was fairly good with parking provided right outside, however there were a few things that let this place down. Firstly we were boiling hot, I think the heat must rise from the room below and/our radiator comes on automaticaly, had both windows open (which freaked me out after attending ghost tours and york dungeons during day!). And the second thing I found really anoying was the cleaning girl bought her toddler with her who proceded to scream the house down from about 0700 on our last morning!!!!
We also (as otheres seemed to) experienced difficulty with breakfast, we put our order on board the first morning and it came no problems. The second morning one of the housekeepers said "just tell me and Ill remeber" - the next day it was a different housekeeper, no message had been passed on so we had go to kitchen and request breakfast.
The room was very small, however this wouldnt have bothered me as you dont go away to sit in your room! Finaly the shower took aaaaaggggggeeeeesss to get the right temp, im talking 20+mins of messing about and its just a dribble of water. Its a shame as the decor is really lovely, with little vintage touches, the bathroom looks brand new, this could be a great place but unfortunately it isnt.
