I travel around the the UK on businesses and frequently visit York .. I use budget hotels and do not expect 5star for a budget price sadly for the first time I am leaving a negative review .This hotel may have a couple of fine public rooms...The staff did their best and that's the best I can say.

The main hotel looked nice but we were sent over the road to a horrible, dirty hovel. Room was just awful.. toilet seat fell off, pipes hanging off wall, mattress didn't fit the bed,horrible stained lampshades, had to sanitise the TV remote etc.. I have never walked out of an establishment before but this one broke me and we left...

Staff wonderful and cleanliness faultless. Hotel in desperate need of refurbishment but is reflected in the price. Very shabby but comfortable enough. Has TV, hairdryer, kettle etc. Seem to have problems with heating system. Heater in room meant shortage of sockets for other things. Free wifi but doesn't work too well. 20 minutes walk to town centre.

We saw the charming fotos of hotel and got under impression it is a wonderful old hotel, good for historical place like York. Unfortunately, all charm ends when you close the door to hall and main rooms. Dusty, dirty carpet with nasty stains, old broken furniture and bad smell in the rooms and corridors. Hot water you have after 20-30...

Good location- helpful friendly staff, amazing interior design with impressive wood panelling and an awesome staircase. Rooms comfortable and very good value for such a popular city. Breakfast sitting finishes a little early though at 9 am! Will stay again.

Very damp smelling rooms off a stained and dilapidated hallway which I'm sure smelled of cannabis. Very outdated and poorly maintained room, curtains wouldn't close. Carpets in main lobby taped together with gaffer tape. Think the maintenance team have spent more time on photoshop than looking after this place... the pictures we saw when we booked certainly didn't resemble what...

The older part of the building has a great old English vibe to it, we stayed out past the courtyard in some brand new modern rooms which I really enjoyed -- I love old school looks but enjoy new amenities! The price was amazing ($90 USD) and we rarely get that much for that price at home. Would love to...
