Arrived to see my son, who is at York university for his birthday.
The room was beautiful, overlooking the walls. Immaculately clean with a heated bathroom floor.
Reception staff were very welcoming and my room was ready at 2.30pm.
The breakfast was fantastic. A lovely lady served me both days, addressing me by name and chatting, which was lovely, especially as I was on my own.
I visited the swimming pool each day, and asked if my son may join me on his birthday. The gentleman in charge there was so kind and said it was no problem, before showing me the facilities. It was things like this that made the hotel so enjoyable for me.
On my last morning my son joined me for breakfast and was wished a happy birthday by the lady who served us breakfast. She had remembered from the previous days conversation.
I can't wait to visit again. The hotel is more expensive than most, but the staff and facilities are wonderful.
Thank you to all concerned.
