The room we booked was a 'sidings classic double' upon check in i was told he had been upgraded to a 'superior double'. Although we had been upgraded i feel we would have... More

I booked this afternoon tea as part of my retirement celebrations. It was excellent. The food was exceptional - without doubt the best afternoon tea we've ever had. All my guests commented on how good it was. The food was only part of the experience. The garden room is beautiful - a wonderful setting. The staff were equally as wonderful... More

We stayed in a deluxe room for one night on what was probably the hottest day of the year. On checking into our room the first thing we noticed was the horrendous smell! Our room (106) was directly above the kitchen extractor fans and having to have the windows open due to the heat, we had to endure the cooking... More

This is a wonderful hotel. It is located next to the York train station, and only a few block from the Old Town & the York Minster, the iconic Gothic-style Medieval Cathedral. This is a wonderful hotel for a romantic weekend get away. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The staff was very helpful

We paid £600 for 2 nights in a superior room, the room we were allocated, next to the lift was tiny, 21m2 is indicated on the website, it would be lucky if the room was 15m2. The room was small enough but additional space for the cupboard and lift next to the room took even more space out of the... More

We stayed here for one night in the new annex rooms. It was very cosy. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff were wonderful, friendly and attentive. Breakfast was delicious. The location is perfect for seeing york. Will definitely stay again.
