Having stayed here twice is indeed in itself an excellent advertisement for Knowle House apartments. Just a few minutes walk outside of the city walls and with a supermarket on the main road catering for all amenities, it's the perfect location for exploring York.
The full English breakfast is good quality and an ample portion size. There were some refurbishments taking place to the main reception area when we stayed meaning the table and chairs were dusty and required a quick wipe prior to seating. It's this lack of attention to detail and the tired rooms which make the hotel more of a 3 star than 4.
Overall the hotel rooms are clean if not a little dated and lack the touch of luxury which generally comes with a 4 star. Hopefully the refurbishments which have started in the communal areas will follow through to the bedrooms.
