Nice place to stay, friendly hotel. Rooms very modern. Only thing I'd say it's a little walk for the centre but that didn't bother us and we enjoy walking. Parking round the corner which is good. Also a pub opposite as well

The room was nice, the breakfast OK. Close to everything, very good location. I would certainly go back to this hotel. Although the outside of the hotel does not say too much, the inside is very confortable. The staff were very helpful and very organized considering we were a group of 22 people.

Ate at hotel restaurant as too tired to go anywhere else. Arrived at 7:30 to be told there is a 20 min wait although the... More

A modern clean hotel situated within easy walking distance of the major sites -Minster, Railway Museum, Jorvik Centre etc etc. The hotel was most comfortable, bedrooms ditto - and the towels wonderful. The menu appears limited but the food is wonderfully presented and v tasty.

Good location but needs redecorating!! Would not stay here again. Cost a lot of money and the children did not get proper beds. It was a very small room that had not been cleaned. The lift up to the floor was tiny and could barely hold two people. I would recommend the stairs and hope your not on the top... More
