“A deluxe room but too much road noise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

We had to go for a deluxe room as all standard rooms were apparently taken. Fair enough and the room itself was decent with first class bathroom and shower. Downside was that the room backed onto the road by the river and we were constantly aware of passing traffic, both on arrival between 4:30 - 6:30 in the evening (when we went out), and from 6 in the morning onwards. A deluxe room needs to be deluxe in every detail including location. Not so with this room so take care and ask for a room on the inside of the hotel. Evening drinks sensibly priced and buffet breakfast acceptable. £10 for car parking is an irritant but seems to be par for the course in York. Does that make it acceptable?

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near to Skeldergate, particularly Room no. 46.

Unfortunately the road noise is beyond our control and being a city centre location, it is something we cannot prevent. If you choose to return, we would welcome any request to be away from the road where available. We hope that you will come back and stay with us again, and look forward to that. Kind regards, Lady Anne Middleton's Hotel

We stayed for 2 nights with some friends and this was our 2nd visit. Reception and bar staff are very friendly and the hotel is really close to York centre. The rooms are standard but that is what we expected, the pillows were a bit hard so none of us slept that well. Breakfast was lovely and there was something to suit everybody though they are tight with the butter and tea. I would definately stay again though I am gutted they have cottoned on to charging for the car park.

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your second visit to Lady Anne Middleton's Hotel, and we will definitely look into the quality of our pillows to make sure that they are as comfy as possible! Apologies for the car parking charges, however we match, if not beat, the prices of other city centres hotel and use this income to improve the car park and other areas of the hotel. Hopefully you will notice the improvements on your next visit! See you again in the future, Lady Anne Middletons Hotel

A one night stopover with a late arrival, so we ate in the hotel. The meal was adequate but steak and chips on a wooden platter arrived cold. And not much choice of wine by the glass. Breakfast elements not so good. Poor coffee and reheated toast. Had to ask for non lump sugar, and it was difficult to source..... Room was well equipped, clean and spacious (even though access was not) and the front desk staff very friendly. I would definitely use again.

Sincere apologies that the meal you had in our restaurant was not up to scratch. I have passed all these comments on to the head chef and restaurant manager to look in to. We do offer 8 different wines by the glass, and for a small independent hotel we feel this is quite reasonable. But we will look into this to see if we can improve our wine list. We are glad that you would use us again and hope that we have made all the improvements necessary for your stay to be perfect next time! Kind regards, Lady Anne Middleton's Hotel

My son booked a table at 4pm on Mother's Day and travelled from the Peak District to take us out to dinner ... We arrived just after a client was kicking off about the service and quality
The meal arrived and I asked was the small bowl of veg for 1or2 people.... It was for 2!! I asked for more and was told there were no roast potatoes or broccoli left..... We didn't get any on the first dish..... There was loads of undercooked turnip though which was gross... I had to ask for more gravy too
There were only 2 tables full while we were there and the service was appalling!!! They were standing around chatting ..... I was so upset as I have been recovering from a transplant and was a treat to go out..... They shouldn't have accepted the booking if the food had run out and it wasn't cheap!!!!

Room Tip: Didn't see any rooms

I'm very sorry that you did not enjoy your Sunday Lunch with us. We did not run out of broccoli or potatoes so a member of our staff must have been incorrectly informed, and for that I am very sorry. There was no turnip, that was artichoke hearts, I apologise you were not correctly informed as to what the selection of vegetables included. We only put a small amount of gravy on each Sunday roast as some people do not like a lot, but of course we are more than happy to provide more to suit each individual liking. Obviously we were unaware of the medical conditions you were recovering from, and again I can only offer my apologies that this meal was not up to your expectations. I wish you all the best in your recovery and hope that you are not deterred from travelling to York in the future. Kind regards, Lady Anne Middleton's Hotel.

Great meal, although we were not asked how we would like our meat cooked, average prices. The staff were not quite as attentive as we would have liked, it took a while to get their attention for drinks service at the table.
If you are wearing heels to this venue I would advise you use the front entrance, as there is a steep slope at the back which is virtually impossible to walk down.

I apologise wholeheartedly that you felt the service was no as attentive as it should have been. I will ensure the restaurant manager is aware of this and allow him to look into the matter with the staff. Other than that I am pleased you enjoyed the meal and I hope you will return again in the future. Kind regards, Lady Anne Middleton's Hotel

I have eaten here a couple of times and always find the staff very friendly and accommodating and the food delicious.
We went for Sunday dinner yesterday and it was very pleasant.
I had a three course meal which was really nice. We have a young baby too and the waiter was very helpful and made our dinner very enjoyable.
I love the atmosphere in this place, it has a real "family business" feel to it.
The comedy night is also worth going to!

The review below by 'bondopi' is completely at odds with my party of seven people who all thoroughly enjoyed the 'Lady Ann Middleton' experience. On arrival the Manager asked if we would like to go to our table , but we explained we would wait until the remaining guests arrived which was ok, the ambience of the bar area is superb with piano playing softly in the background, the beers on offer were as expected, good, as a CAMRA member I would expect nothing else. The service in the restaurant area was brilliant, especially as both eating areas were full to capacity, helped no doubt by the fact it was Mothering Sunday, the food portions were sufficient, food quality good, all the staff, both Bar and Waiting were very friendly and efficient and received a suitable tip to help top up their probable meagre wages. All in all a lovely afternoon was had and when in York again will certainly pay another visit. Maybe the bondopi group would prefer a fast food outlet.
