I wanted a romantic one night stay with my girlfriend, so opted for the Warrens Hotel and requested a room with a four poster bed.
It was nice and clean, and the owners were very friendly indeed, but I think the £70 we paid for the room for the night was marginally steep for the overall experience.
I thought the breakfast portions were small (one sausage, one hash brown) and the choice of cereals/fruit etc. could have been greater for people who didn't want the full english.
Their website is slightly misleading too. It says you can check in from 9-12 or 4-6. I checked in at 10 thinking my room would be ready, but they said I had to come back two hours later! This meant I had to trudge round York for a couple of hours.
When we got back, the room was still not ready and we finally moved into it at around 12:20pm.
The room itself was nice but very hot even with the window open. The bathrooms were ok, but I think a proper opening door as opposed to a sliding door would be preferable, as there was a small gap in the door allowing people to almost see you from the room when at the toilet!
Also the car park is far too small. They have 14 rooms I believe, yet car parking for 6 or 7 cars. We were told to abandon the car in the middle of the car park, meaning that if anyone had to be out we'd have had to move it.
Overall, an OK place with friendly folks running it, but it could do with a lot more for £70 a night.
