“Night out/stop over in York”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Booked this on a voucher deal. Upgraded to a Luxury room and stopped on a Friday night for some shopping and a night out in York centre. The hotel couldnt be situated any better really. Its 5 mins walk to the edge of the centre so away from alot of the noise(i say alot as i was woken at 3 am with some idiots shouting on th road). The hotel was lovely. The staff couldnt be more helpful and the room was great too although a little cold but they did leave a small rad to plug in should you need it. Didnt eat there but it equaly looked very good. We did spend time in the small but very well decorated bar too which is always a nice touch when youve got back to your hotel. All in all i will be back as it ticked all the boxes for me and the wife:)

Room Tip: The suites upstairs in the old part are lovely and worth the extra. Four poster beds, and lots of ro...

This was our second visit to the Churchill Hotel and it won't be our last. The rooms, food and service was fantastic.We was able to leave our car in the car park before booking in so we could go and explore York, which is a very short walk into the town centre. We was given an upgrade to a luxury room which was a lovely surprise on arrival. Our evening meal was fabulous, the food so fresh and tasty, as was the breakfast the next morning. We were made to feel very welcome, even the friendly waitress at breakfast wished me a happy birthday. Can't wait till we visit again

We decided spur of the minute to have weekend in York. We stayed in the Churchill really lovely comfortable room. The hotel perfectly situated just a short stroll into the heart of York. We had a really delicious breakfast and there was plenty of it. Minor annoyance was there was no cream for my husbands coffee which is bizarre in a hotel of this size that they didn't have any cream !
Will definitely return and stay here again

The Churchill is very convenient for a break in York, being only a few minutes walk from the city centre. We stayed in an executive double, which although small, was adequate, comfortable and clean. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and provide maps and tips for where to eat if you don't want to use the hotel restaurant. We ate in the hotel on the first night and found the food excellent. Breakfast was plentiful with a huge choice of fresh fruit salad, cereals, croissants, toast and a cooked breakfast prepared to your specification. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel and can recommend it.

Me and my husband stayed for a weekend in January, it was bought as a gift for our wedding which we were more than grateful for especially as we had an excellent weekend. The staff were exceptionally polite and very helpful nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent we could not of asked for better, the whole atmosphere of the hotel was relaxing and welcoming. The room we stayed in was nicely decorated with a modern feel. We will certainly stay again and highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here last week for my boyfriends birthday. The hotel was in an extremely good location with the added benefit of free parking which not many hotels offer, and only a short walk to the shops and restaurants/bars etc. The hotel is clean and decorated to a high standard and the staff are welcoming and friendly. We did ask to see another room rather than the one given to us as it didnt have a bath, and we were actually upgraded to a better room which made our stay! We unfortunately cannot comment on the restaurant or breakfast as we did not eat in the hotel, however the restaurant and bar looked lovely. We would definitely return to this hotel when we next visit york.

We stayed overnight in the Holme Lea Manor (the sister venue to the nearby Churchill), which I'll report positively on elsewhere. When settling into our room, the local literature revealed the link between HLM and The Churchill together with a sample menu to illustrate the type of food on offer - on a damp evening after a busy day in York centre, this seemed like an ideal solution to our eating-out dilemma; little did we know what an impeccable dining experience awaited us.

On arrival we were greeted by the friendly restaurant manager and shown to a nice table in the lovely dining room. We turned out to be one of only three couples dining that evening - the ambience was excellent with beautiful piano music all evening ( a recording on this occasion but no doubt live sometimes); our only slight criticism was that perhaps the lights were a touch too low.
We opted for the main menu offering three courses for £29.95. As it turned out we enjoyed an additional free appetiser, together with fresh brioche loaf with fish pate, queen olives and balsamic and olive oil dip.
The menu offered a decent range for each course with perhaps half a dozen choices all of which were imaginative. My starter was pan-fried scallops on a slice of belly pork with pea puree and pear foam? - it was beautifully presented and stunning to eat, especially the pork. Cathy chose the beetroot salad with goats cheese textures - equally lovely in its presentation and very tasty. For main, Cathy took the pan fried tarragon gnocchi with duck egg, truffle etc - on reflection this was perhaps not the best choice because she finds gnocchi a little stodgy; however, having sampled a couple I found them delicious. My main was the Hogget loin in herb crust with pancetta, roast roots and pickled chestnuts - once again it looked lovely and tasted divine with the lamb being perhaps the most tender that I've ever eaten
All the while we were attended by a lovely waitress from Poland who couldn't have been more helpful.
With these courses Cathy enjoyed some Chilean SB and I enjoyed a bottle of Argentine malbec, which went very well with the lamb.
For pudding Cathy enjoyed the selection of homemade ice-creams, whilst I sampled the coffee and pistachio with assorted textures. This proved to be another fine course with tasty pistachio ice cream, coffee panna cotta of ideal consistency, some unusual fluffy pistachio substance topped with powerful espresso flavour caramel crisps,

I can honestly say that for me the food was flawless, the service nicely attentive all in a warm atmosphere with perfect mood music. Perhaps the best over all meal that I've ever had. When visiting York next time, the location for evening meal is set in stone.
