Normally when we go to York we stay at a pub down the road, but this time I thought I would try something different, and I'm glad I did.
We got there ridiculously early, they were still cleaning the rooms, but the guys were perfectly OK with it. Obviously we couldn't get our bags and stuff in the room till later, but we were shown where we were going to be and directed to the free car park at the rear of the hotel. That in itself makes it a worthy choice as parking is at a premium in York.
The room itself was clean - with a clever idea for making the most of the room size - a folding bathroom door. Everything needed for a stay was there as well as free wifi - when I eventually worked out which connection to use. The instructions on display in the room were slightly wrong, but that is a VERY minor quibble.
Breakfast was lovely - and served very quickly and pleasantly. My personal hate in a breakfast area is some places have abject silence in them - thankfully this wasn't one - they had the local radion station on. Why other places can't do this is beyond me.
All in all, a top value place. Worth a £59 price for a night - would definitely go again.
