When travelling for business you get used to hotels saying they are 4 star but in reality they are an optimistic 3 star. Also with business booking you get shoved in the old rooms. So I was really surprised when I got a lovely room, great size, tea tray with about every drink you could think of on it. The room was clean, bathroom a good size and the bed was really comfortable, the sheets had not been sterilised to an inch of their lives, so where soft not scratchy.
The staff where just wonderful, felt really safe and nothing was a bother, I had room service and there is a good selection of veggie options and the food is not over priced. The breakfast selection was good too. To top it off, you're a stone's throw from the Minister, so can hear the chimes when you have the window open.
Felt like a mini break rather than a business trip, just need to find a reason to go back to York to stay again!
