Welcoming sort of place with a nice bar, and pleasant TV room (in case you're wondering, there was a TV in our room). Rooms were a little spartan and no frills (e.g., no shampoo, soap only) but adequate and clean. Breakfast was OK. Location very good, about a 10-15 minute walk from the railway station. Staff friendly. Liked the fact we could stay one night when many hotels in York insist on two nights over a weekend. Happy with the price.
