We booked this hotel for one nights stay just before travelling, on one of those "Secret Hotel' type websites, so we didn't know what we were getting unti we booked. Was very pleased with the hotel especially for the deal we got which included breakfast and free parking. It was these 2 extras that prompted us to choose this hotel, slightly out of the centre of York as opposed to similarly priced hotels nearer the town centre, which did not have parking or breakfast included in the price.
On the whole, it was very good value for money, it's clearly an older building that does slightly resemble a 1960's Comprehensive school on the outside, but inside it has clearly been modernised to a good standard and the rooms were clean, roomy and adequately appointed for the standard of the hotel. The breakfast service was efficient and a good choice and selection of items on offer. Check in and check out went quickly and efficiently and we were pleased with our choice of hotel.
Taxi's into the Centre of York were £6 with local firm 659659 and buses do run into the town from outside the hotel but can be full on a saturday. If you fancy walking, it'll take no more than half hour at a steady amble.
If you do fancy going into York after checking out, just ask the desk and they are happy for you to leave your car on the car park, which can save on additional parking fees.
