I came up to York on a business trip and was booked in by our booking agent. When i got to my room i unpacked and thought i'd have a cuppa before heading for a walk into the city. I was shocked to find dirty spoons a grubby kettle and cups that had clearly been just rinsed out. So it put me off using the equipment and i reported it to reception. Later when i returned back to the hotel i was pleased to see the spoons etc had been cleaned or replaced but on further inspection i noticed that the room was quite dusty in places and in fact wrote "Clean me!" in the dust on the shelf above the coathangers and on the trouser press. The hotel's housekeeping obviously needs something to be desired although my be was nice and clean even if the bed linen and the towels had spent far too long in a tumble drier and had that burnt cotton smell.....not pleasant!.. For a tall chap the showers were obviously made for people who were vertically challenged and only came up to my breast height. On the plus side they are the first hotel i have come across that can actually toast brown bread at breakfast...well done! and a huge thank you for that. Perhaps they can train other hotels around the country how to do it, but it let itself down by the waitress whipping my plate away as soon as i put the last fork full of food in my mouth...far too keen to clear things up...would i stay here again?.....after this experience probably not and would stay in the hotel just up the road next time I'm in York which will be only a few weeks time ....sorry Holiday Inn you let yourselves down..
