My partner and I stayed here this week and found the hotel and the staff absolutely excellent. Every member of staff we encountered during our our measly one night stay were very polite and nothing was too much trouble for them - very professional. As it was our anniversary they kindly provided a couple of glasses of champagne upon arrival... More

What lovely, spacious, immaculate rooms! All the amenities included daily biscuits and complimentary bottled water. The location was excellent, just a short walk from the train station and also close to most other historic sites in York. Very reasonably priced, as well. I would move in tomorrow if I could!

It's location is great, just a hundred yards or so from the train station, and easy walking distance to the centre of York. The hotel is situated in a beautiful old railway building, but the interiors... More

A really lovely hotel. The location is just about perfect - a 10 minute easy walk into the centre of York. The valet parking was very efficient - the car was always waiting outside when we wanted it back. The room (403) was very good, although the sitting area was a bit dark as one of the bulbs in the...

There is no more to say than that- hotel and facilities first class, as is location! From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely helpful and courteous, Daniel at front of desk was extremely attentive, (thanks!). In fact every member of staff were quick to engage and help if they were able to. Would definitely recommend!!

My only negative issues with this Five Star rated establishment concern the extremely limited Restaurant Menu and the... More
