Stayed here in an Executive double, really nice room but a tad small, lovely shower but no bath which was a surprise. Room with a view of York Minster and only 5 minutes into town.
Only downside is it sits next to the railway line so an early morning call from British Rail can be expected if you are on that side of the building
Also the room was quite cold and the heating takes a while to kick in and you cant leave it on to warm up whilst you are out. The staff provided us with a heater which sadly didnt work but Im sure in the warmer months you would not notice this at all.
Did not eat dinner at the hotel, its quite a small room and a tad dark and doesnt come across as a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast was lovely and the lady waiting the tables was very polite and friendly. The same could be said of the bar staff and the reception staff.
Un attended reception desk however so you can be waiting a little while before a member of staff notices you. Really quirky environment with Winston being ever present, in portraits, quotations and cigars.
I would certainly return in the future it gives the feel of a family run hotel which has a great appeal

Stayed here before and had a lovely room in the old original part of the the building this time we left it late and there was only " the broom cupboard " available in the new annexe I knew they said it was small but the bathroom was tiny, good job we are both not too big. Disappointing choice of evening meal so rather than eat in we walked down into city centre where we had an excellent meal. If you are staying here ask for old rooms if available.

I love this hotel it has a great location the staff are all very friendly. My husband and I booked a standard room for 2 nights but when we checked in the man on the front desk took one look at my 6 ft 7 husband and said the standard rooms are quite small and he upgraded us to the luxury room and it was a very nice room. The room was very clean and comfortable and we would stay here again.

We stayed at the Churchill for two nights in an executive room. The room was clean, the bed comfy. Thought it was strange, only having one towel in the bathroom, doesnt give the impression of being very generous. The shower was great, no bath, which after a long cold day wondering around York would have been welcome. I found the lighting in the bathroom horrendous, far too dark for a bathroom. We didnt eat in the hotel, but noticed the restarant was very busy each evening. Maybe we would try next time we visit York.

The hotel has a good location - just a short walk to York Minster and the walled city. It's about a 15 minute walk from the train station. The room was well appointed and clean.

The front desk doesn't seem to be routinely staffed. At check-in and check-out we had to wait a while before a staff member noticed us and provided assistance. At one point the battery in the locking mechanism on the door ran out, and we had to snoop around to find a staff member to assist us with getting into the room. WiFi didn't work during our stay.
