“Great Hotel? Oh yes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

A quality boutique hotel within minutes walk of the centre of York, The Churchill is great base for a short break to enjoy in my opinion the best city in the UK.

My stay here came courtesy of my grown-up children and Red Letter Days so it was free too, even better.

The hotel has a large car park, always a bonus when staying in York as many hotels do not and parking charges here are expensive. The staff are welcoming and friendly, escorting you to your room on arrival to help you settle in. The building is in the Georgian style but the rooms are bang up to date with Huge flat screen TV, huge bed and the most amazing multi jet shower. Our room had a remote controlled velux roof window with blind, really cool. All very clean too, not a streak or speck of dust anywhere.

Although we ate out during our stay the menu in the restaurant looked good and reasonable value. The piano bar dining room is Georgian grandeur itself. Our breakfast was the only let down, the continental serve yourself type is great and good quality with cerial, toast and juice available. We both ordered a full English but had to wait 40 minutes for it. When it arrived it was dry and tasteless. Oh dear.

So, would I reccomend the Churchill? Oh yes! The quality accomodation and perfect location are unbeatable and the free parking a bonus. The dull breakfast? Perhaps just a one off.

Booked in here after dining at the restaurant a couple of days earlier. I do not think we have stayed at a place where value for money has been better. The Hotel is clean, comfortable, quiet, and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is superb with a 4 minute walk to the Minster and York city. Any time we are in York we will be booking to stay here.

I had an enjoyable stay at this hotel in York. It has a large car park and I was told that they will guarantee you a space to park, finding you one elsewhere if the car park ever gets full.The decor in the room was pleasant, although I did find the lighting rather inadequate. There was a desk and chair to work. The bathroom was huge - with a vast expanse of floor - rather wasted space in my opinion. The lights on the landings are the sort that are activated by movement. Great for the environment, but not so great when despite moving you find yourself in complete darkness! The staff were friendly and helpful.

Stayed here for 4 nights and delighted with the hotel. Just 5 minutes from the centre so an easy walk in. The bedroom was a good size - bathroom a little neat in size but had an excellent shower.. Only niggle was the bedroom which we found rather dull in furnishings but that is personal taste. Breakast very good with a wide variety of cooked dishes, pastries, cereals etc Decided to stay for dinner and had both the early dinner menu on a couple of nights and the full A La Carte on another 2 nights. Both excellent with plenty of choice.
Staff all very polite willing and helpful . Would certainly return and recommend to friends

We celebrated our son's wedding here last May and the Churchill pulled out all the stops- a fantastic weekend! We stayed very recently for one night and from the moment we arrived received a very warm welcome from a lovely,friendly lady receptionist The room we stayed in this time was much smaller than the large,luxurious room we had before but it was very clean,bright and modern with good quality bedding and towels.
The breakfast was fantastic- plentiful choice of fruit, cereals, yoghurts and breads. The full English was delicious and cooked to perfection. The waitress who served us was a delightful lady,so happy and genuinely warm, she couldn't do enough for us.
Guests also have the added bonus of being able to park their car free of charge with only a short stroll into the centre of York.
Well done to the hotel's management and staff for getting it so right- we will definitely return.

We have just returned from an overnight stay at the Churchill and were most pleasantly surprised. It is in a perfect location, just 5 minutes walk from the city and although rather tight we were able to find parking. The hotel itself has retained many beautiful features and we were fortunate to be in the older part which has been renovated to an extremely high standard. We stayed in room 103 which had a most unusual bath in the bedroom area. There was also a lovely walk in shower in the bahroom for the more modest!
We opted for the full English at breakfast but there was plenty of choice and access to fruit juices, fruit, cereals and breads. I have to say that we were waited on by a really lovely waitress who took the time to chat to us about the city and the university as well as bringing our daughter a pot of hot chocolate. She is a real asset to the hotel.
As our daughter prepares to go to York university later this year, we have been looking for a good hotel to accomodate us when we come for visits and this ticked all the boxes.
Highly recommended.
