Nice spacious clean and well prepared rooms. Plumbing all good and plenty tea and coffee in room. Had wonderful evening in bar which was well managed with attentive staff. The food is mainly two for the price of one but was slightly below expectations. The breakfast in the morning was poorly organised and not even average quality. I'd stay there... More

The wishing well is a functional hotel. The breakfast was good, the staff could not have been more friendly and went out of their way to help. The main areas were looked after and there were a lot of people visiting to have family meals. The downside of the hotel is that it's on an industrial estate a way outside... More

Visited today with the hubby and small one and had a very pleasant time. The upgrade that has been done is the restaurant looks fab, very modern, tasteful and not over crowded, it's horrible feeling like everybody is sat on top of each other but that is not the case here. My small one didn't go into the play area... More

This was a first time visit to celebrate our granddaughter's Birthday with a family meal. It was on a weekday evening and our drinks and food order was taken efficiently with little delay. We found the Two for One offers were extremely good value. The food was brought to our table soon after ordering and the waitress was very polite... More

I didn't actually look at any of the reviews until I was 5 minutes away from checking in so I was a little worried on what I was reading. We had wanted to stay in the heart of York but the prices were a bit OTT so we decided to stay just outside of the city to save us some... More

Lovely lady on kids in yesterday, very friendly and polite! However was not impressed at the way one of the managers on shift spoke to her In front of my 2 and 7 year old girls, shouting and swearing! Although through all this she did not cause a fuss, she then carried on with her job, in a professional manner... More

We stayed for one Saturday night on a flying visit to Yorkshire. We booked online late, on Friday evening, and then phoned to book a table in the restaurant. They were already aware of the booking and were very polite on the phone. We arrived early evening and the check-in process was quick. The hotel is near the Selby ring... More
