Our room was lovely, clean and large. Breakfast was very nice, although the service could be a little slow. The real stand out was Jordi, the concierge who seemed to solve all of our problems perfectly in 10 minutes. What a gem! The spa was very nice and the indoor pool heated such that it was a pleasure to jump... More

What a wonderful hotel. As soon as I arrived I knew nothing would be too much trouble. Wayne met me as I walked toward the main entrance and took my bag, I was early so my room wasn't ready but when I came back later (just after 3) my bag appeared in the room. We were shown round the room... More

A mixed experience. Location is great. Welcome from reception and porters was warm. Hotel is pretty grand (which is largely what you're paying for). Room was clean and spacious. On the minus side: service at breakfast was poor. My order was wrong and then, despite me raising it, this was not corrected. The staff didn't really pay much attention -... More

With a very warm welcome from the valet we arrived at this stunning hotel in fabulous York, at reception we were quickly and politely taken to our room which was huge, luxurious and beautifully comfortable. This is a lovely hotel, expensive but worth it! It is positioned perfectly with everything an easy walk away. We really enjoyed our stay.

I upgraded from a room to a master suite and the money was very well spent. A very large and well appointed suite was provided which was above expectation. All staff especially Daniel and Jessica were so polite and friendly. Yes this hotel is expensive but if you are looking for a special experience its worth it.
