“As a wedding guest, very lovely!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Although I didn't stay over at the Jorvik Hotel I did attend a wedding with them on 21st September and wanted to compliment their good service and the quality of the food they provided.

The communal areas of the hotel itself are cosy and nicely decorated. The relaxed homely feel to the venue gave the wedding an intimacy that was lovely, particularly the back garden area. We were welcomed with friendly waiters serving sweet and savoury canapés that were just divine. The wedding itself was held outside on a raised decking area. The wedding breakfast was a traditional roast served carvery style which meant food was served warm and fresh. Very tasty. Drinks weren't overly expensive for hotel standards.

All in all a great experience.

Stayed here with my husband for two nights and found the hotel clean, comfortable and close to most main places in york. Staff were helpful and friendly and although we had a room at the front of the hotel and it was very noisy during the night we would definately stay again

On arrival at the hotel the lady who checked us in was very polite and helpful. The room itself was clean and tidy and served purpose. We were not expecting luxury for what we had paid. The ensuite had a bath and shower ( spa bath and power shower although these extra fuctions didn't appear to work) but the room was clean and we liked the option of bath or shower. The bed was not the most comfortable of beds. The problems we encounted at this hotel was trying to sleep!!! Some other guests came back at around half midnight. One of the party couldn't get the keycard to work. Instead of them waiting in one of the others room the entire party waited in the corridor and had a loud conversation. ( I know this is not the hotels fault if other guests are inconsiderate) however the night porter also joined in the comverstion whilst tring to sort the key problem the man was NOT a quiet man nor was he light footed as he went back and forth several times whilst sorting the key!! This went on for around 20 mins along time if you have been rudely awaken.

Room Tip: Rooms are basic and a little outdated. Ensuite have a bath and shower.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you were not completely happy with your recent stay here at the Jorvik.
We do advise our guests if arriving back late to please be considerate to the other guests that we have by keeping noise levels to a minimum. I am sorry to hear this did not happen on this occasion and i can understand your fustration of being woken up!!
In respect of your shower they do have a couple of controls. One for the five points and one for the regular shower head. A member of staff would have been more than happy to assist you with the workings of this.
Kind Regards

After reading previous reviews we were a bit apprehensive but with no need at all. Friendly staff, clean room, breakfast is freshly cooked and good value for money. The hotel is in an excellent location, quiet and only a few minutes walk away from the city centre and it's wonderful attractions.
Would definately consider staying here again.

Every time I go to York I use this hotel. It's in an excellent location, just a short walk away from almost all attractions. The views are beautiful, the rooms are great, ideal for a short stay. The breakfast menu is pretty simple but totally adequate. The car park is quite small which would be the only complaint but this is such a great place that really the size of the car park is such a small issue. Of course paying a little less would be lovely but for such a great place to stay the price really isn't enough to put me off. I see myself returning many times in the future.

Been to this hotel eight times now. Always enjoyed my stay. Rooms nice. Staff friendly and helpful. Only complaint no hair dryer. Would recommend this hotel. Situation is near to the city, nice walk through the Museum Gardens into the city, it is near most attractions.

Booked 2 nights at the end of August. Location was brilliant - 5 minutes walk away to the centre. Nice area. Hotel was fine, rooms clean and tidy and same with bathrooms. On the downside the breakfast was not brilliant but for £4.95 you cant expect too much. Seems the hotel was being run by a lot of young people who seemed to be sat around a lot waiting for something to do. Just seemed a bit strange. They all seemed very pleasant though. The night porter was a nice man and very accommodating. Will stay again when we go back to York.
