The hotel is in a fabulous building and is close to the station and within walking distance of the town centre, so a perfect place to stay to explore York. Our stay was comfortable, but I would say the little touches that make a hotel 5 star were missing. No bubbly wine on offer at breakfast, unlike every other 5 star hotel I have stayed in! Restaurant very cramped at breakfast. Lovely cold meats and smoked salmon on offer but no dressings or salads to accompany them like they have on the continent. The cooked breakfasts were very good and enjoyed by the rest of my family. The lounges were beautifully decorated and furnished but not enough seats for all the guests to sit and relax after dinner! Our room was huge but sparsely furnished and we never did get it warm. UHT milk in the fridge - fresh milk would have made so much difference. We did have a problem with our TV which we reported and a very helpful technician appeared very quickly to sort it out. The spa was small but adequate and the staff very helpful. We found the concierges to be helpful and the overall the service the staff gave was good. The Cedar Court is a lovely hotel but we felt some aspects fell short of it's 5 star rating.
