By the looks of the other reviews on here there appears to be some really nice rooms and some "quite pokey" rooms in this hotel. We were in the latter! I'm guessing that if you book through a website where you get your room cheap then you'll get the pokey little rooms and if you book direct (and pay more) then you'll get the nice ones!
The hotel is really centrally located, which is probably the best feature about it - we couldn't have asked for a better location. The room was very small - fine for one night but would have been a bit cramped if we were there longer or planning on spending more time in the room. Everything was clean and the staff were pleasant enough. Our bed was 2 single beds pushed together and the duvet wasn't quite big enough for this!
All in all it was ok value in terms of the location, as York is quite expensive for hotels, but I would have been happier if the room was a bit bigger! More
