The hotel was booked in the main for its central location- it is just a short stroll over the river into the centre of York - we visited during the Festival of Angels and the ice sculptures on display were lovely. We prebooked a parking space, which we were able to use from 11.00am and then book into the rooms from 2.30 which was very convenient, you do need to prebook this space when booking your room spaces are limited. The hotel itself was very nice, the rivers views from the bedrooms were stunning and breakfast was very good, well organised, even though the hotel was full. We did go down for breakfast quite early - 8.30 and were given a table right away, however when we were leaving at 9.30 there did seem to be a wait for tables. I would agree that the housekeeping does seem to let the hotel down a little - the bathrooms in particular were not as clean as we would have liked and had a very distinct smell of "musty used mops "about it. We travelled as 2 couples and our friends had the same experience with their bathroom. This is such a shame as the bedrooms themselves, overlooked the river and were large, well equipped and very pleasant. Infact we both agreed that we would stay here again when next visiting York but with the hope that the small issued with housekeeping will be addressed. All in all very good value hotel.
