We took our grandchildren aged 4 and 8 for a couple of days in York and booked an overnight in the Hampton by Hilton. We went on the train and it was only a 5/10 minute walk to the hotel so extremely handy. The kids loved the hotel room, in fact they asked if they could stay another night! The sofa bed had been made into a double bed so there wasn't masses of room to move around but we were out most of the time so it was fine. The kids started messing about at bed time so we split them up, the older sleeping with grandpa and me sleeping with the 4 year old. I thought I had maybe got the worst deal but it was a really comfy sofa bed with a nice thick mattress. The only problem I had was the grandson wanting all of the bed! (bless). I did wonder why there was only a voile type curtain which meant it never got really dark, but as we had packed such a lot into our day we all fell asleep very quickly. As others have said, the windows don't open and the air con kept the room cool but it also dries the room out. Not sure how they can remedy this. The bathroom is beautiful but we all found it difficult to get anything other than slightly aired water for our showers. As the weather was really hot, it wasn't a problem but I hope it's warmer than that in winter. Breakfast was lovely and the staff are very pleasant. Would definitely recommend.
