“Easter break in York”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Great hotel, very nice room in the new courtyard rooms. Really clean and smart. We had the Singapore room, very impressed.

Staff were very happy to help and called us a couple of taxis and it seemed no trouble at all.

We didn't eat in the hotel but it looked like a great restaurant and we will try this next time.

Will certainly stay again, booked through hotels.com so a decent price too.

Overall very impressed.

hotel experience was definitely not the standard I have come to expect from a Best Western. The room initially appeared clean but glancing around, it could certainly do with a good honest dusting. Cobwebs dangling from the lamps and over radiators.
My pet hate is finding people's hair everywhere and this I found in the bed, over the desks and worst of all eyelash with mascara on it in my food!! I did receive an apology and meal refund but even on the morning of me leaving while trying to grab toast there were flies in the basket of bread. OMG. Simple things like covering the food area would solve that! Those experience together with exceptionally poor WiFi coverage made my stay there unbearable.
I will never stay there again.

My friend and I stayed here for a girly night out... We were aptly put in the "Boogie Woogie" suite which was set at the back of the hotel garden. It almost felt like we were away from everyone and had full use of the garden for sitting outside our room. The room had a lovely clean feel with an amazing shower.
The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Everything we experienced made our stay wonderful and nothing was too much trouble.. the breakfast was amazing and well worth the money. We would definitely recommend you stay here as only 5 mins in taxi from city centre. Fabulous!!

We booked to stay for one night for a family wedding. Food that was served was lovely and the bar staff very attentive and chatty. Room was nice but not so sure it is worth £120 per night; a few small things such as the room being cold and the finishing's looking a bit dated but only a small niggle. Breakfast was pleasant, the cold buffet had a nice selection and the choice of hot food was good too. The bacon was a little anaemic looking and could have done with longer but again its only a small quibble. Overall a nice stay. The biggest problem with this hotel is that it has a small car park and when this hotel is at full capacity for functions it can be difficult to get a space. Possibly introducing a few reserved spaces for guests that are willing to pay for the parking etc may be a good idea.

Lovely georgian hotel surrounded by spring gardens in a quiet village on the outskirts of York. All amenities easily accessible. Hotel staff very helpful and accomodating. Nothing too much trouble. Would recommend. But cant guarantee the weather!!!

I have stayed at this hotel twice now over the past 3 years, nothing has changed or improved since 2011. the reception area is welcoming, the staff couldn't do anymore for you. The breakfast was great with lots of options. The brerakfast room itself is gorgeous oak panelled floor, fresh flowers, quaint intimate dining. The lounge area is cosy where you can sit and have a drink. Lovely sofas, magazines, newspapers. Moving onto our room.....tired, dated and dull. Tiny little double bed, basic bath and shower. Off white towels have seen better days, old fashioned tv with limited channels. Ugly flowery bedspread. We stayed here because we had a fresh weekends voucher for one night in a unique hotel!! We originally wanted to stay in the Kilima Best Western, but 'conveniently' they aren't honouring the fresh weekends vouchers!! The proprietors of the Pavilion need to seriously update their bedrooms. We sat in the downstairs lounge and had a glass of wine, we counted 12 lamps on in that room!!!!!!! Won't rush back here. I also notice that one reviewer had a downstairs room that opened onto a patio area.....sounds great! shame we couldn't have had a nicer room!

Room Tip: perhaps go elsewhere!

Had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. We were very fortunate with the weather and enjoyed lovely walks along the river to the city centre each day. The food was excellent and the evening meals in the Restaurant were delicious. I am a coeliac and have to be on a gluten-free diet which was catered for with ease - at breakfast though they could not find the gluten-free bread until our last morning which was quite surprising as it always appeared for my evening meal! This was not a problem as I always take gluten-free bread with me when I go away. All the staff were most helpful and friendly.
