We stayed in a family room with our 2 kids in May 2014.
The location was fantastic - overlooking the race course. The hotel is practically next to the park and ride which was great for getting into York and it's in a really nice area of York. The staff in the hotel were lovely and it was great having the gym and the swimming pool.
On the downside:
I agree that the hotel does look dated as other guests have commented. Our famikly room was advertised as having a seating area - this actually consisted of a small table and 1 chair. I had to ask 3 times before another chair arrived - the kids sat on the floor! Perhaps they were experiencing shortages with their toiletries but we had 1 shampoo, 1 conditioner, and 1 liquid handwash between 4 of us. Luckily the hotel is a short drive from Tescos so I went out and bought soap and shampoo etc. This is not what I was expectin g for nearly £200 a night wheb they knew there were 4 of us in the room. I had to ask twice over a 2 hour period for face cloths.
I would definitely stay in this hotel again due to it's location and the views etc (but maybe after it has been refurbiushed and I would take my own toiletries the next time!
