“Perfect base camp”
Reviewed October 27, 2009

I stayed for two nights whilst at a conference and found it very good for the nature of my visit. The staff were friendly, the rooms were very clean and the facilities were adequate. Breakfast was a continental buffet. The only complaint I would have is that I could detect the wireless network - not sure if that was me, or the network.

Holiday Inn Express, (Monks Cross) Malton Road York

We paid £55 per room including buffet breakfast for 2 adults and a 5 year old. Excellent value!

The Hotel is located on the outskirts of York next to a Toby Carvery close to Monks Cross Retail Outlet and the park and ride. You couldn’t walk directly to this as the road didn’t have a footpath. The hotel itself was 5-10 minutes drive from York city centre.

The staff were helpful and welcoming check in was at 3pm but we were able to enter our room a little earlier on this occasion. We were prepared to go around the retail park or take refreshment in the Toby Carvery next door if not!

Our room was located on the first floor (there is only the ground and first floor here)
And consisted of double bed, sofa bed, shower, WC, telephone, TV (pay per view films available) tea and coffee making facilities, basic storage and a desk / dressing table. The bathroom had soap, shampoo /body wash provided.

The hotel had vending machines and the staff had basic emergency toiletries that may be forgotten and some alcohol for sale also. (Not a bar)

Breakfast was buffet and was of good quality and variety. You were able to take to your room should you not wish to eat in the breakfast room. Breakfast comprised of fruit, cereal, yoghurt, toast, pastries, muffins, conserves / marmite / honey / chocolate spread. A wide selection of hot and cold beverages.

We wouldn’t hesitate to return to this hotel or try another in the chain our only negative points was the bed was a little too soft for our liking and the shower was a bit of a trickle but hey you can’t win them all!

We stayed 2 w/e nights in mid July for UKP 75/85 room/night.
Location is 5+ km from Station but park & ride nearby (but beyond walking). Quiet.
Room small but clean by local standards.
Windows are blocked and open max 20 cm. Not for someone who prefers fresh asir.
Lousy matress, our backs hurt for 3 days.
Although large posters in the lobby advertise "power showers" ours did drizzle at best and this was not remedied although we complained.
Continental Breakfast included as usual and ok.
Parking was free.

The rooms were worth the money for - It cost me 90£ a night... The hotel provided free breakfast, and you could choose from a wide range of bakery items, toast, cornflakes, juice, coffee or tea. I prefer light breakfast instead of the common 'heavy' English breakfast. There was a carvery attached to the hotel where I used to take dinner from.
The location was also good, away from the loud dins of the city.

Making an outgoing call from the room phone was the only problem. You couldnt do it.

We stayed here 23rd of May as a hen party of 12 between 5 rooms. Luckily they gave us all the rooms in our own corridor as we may have been a little noisy!

The room I stayed in had one double and one sofabed- this was incredibly uncomfortable, you could feel the wooden planks beneath you and the head of the bed was lower than the foot. I had to sleep on the bed sideways at the end which was just the foam cushion.

One of the rooms had empty beer cans under the bed when we complained on check-out they said that we had put them there!

Also the rooms were quite expensive £110 if there were 3 in a room or £85 if there were 2. Usually these places charge by the room, not per person.

Breakfast was ok- nothing else to say really.

To get a cab in to the center of York will cost you about £10 and takes about 10 minutes.
