We stayed at the holgate on the 6th and 7th January from the time we walked into the hotel on the 6th untill we left we could not fault it nice owner nice staff.The meals were very good in fact this is an under statement a good menu choice for the evening meal, breakfast was fab someone has said that the sausage and bacon were not nice we did not find this to be the case This trip was a birthday present and a better present i could not have wished for, dont take my word for it try it yourself.

Stayed at this Hotel for one night whilst attending a military reunion. Must admit it may be considered dated by some but I found it charming, much better than than impersonal chain Hotels that abound nowadays.

My room was clean, well appointed and comfortable, the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Though I hardly stepped out of the Hotel during my short stay it is situated in a nice area not to far from central York and is a £4 taxi ride from the Station.

Found the staff and the owner very helpful, and I would certainly stay again.

10 minutes walk to York walls and on a busy road.Bathrooms tiny and outdated. Owner/reception lady friendly but resented our displeasure at the poor fire training of her night staff when a fire bell in our room at 4 in the morning.We know the dangers of fire but the night staff did not seem to care about the protocols required to ensure all guests are safe and that all was OK before returning to rooms.
She wandered up to us waiting at the emergency exit saying water had got to the alarm(!!!),
As we returned to our room the next room guest drifted out asking what the fuss was about- hate to think what would have happened had there been a real fire?? Death perhaps! When enquiring at breakfast whether we had a good night, the owner was uninformed about the fire alarm going off and seemed to resent the fact that we felt her staff were poorly trained.All rooms have a fire protocol in the room which the staff were clearly not aware of. When my husband went to report in, no one was at the front desk!!! Breakfast OK but not much to recommend the hotel- a fire trap.

Warm hospitality, very pleasant & friendly staff and a caring owner makes this place endearing and charming despite its datedness.

Located just outside York but close enough to reach by bus makes this a good option if you are planning to visit York without the hastle of having to look for parking for your vehicle or ploughing through traffic jams

All staff were really helpful and friendly. We dropped our bags off first thing in the morning so we could explore York. They were in our room when we came back that afternoon. The breakfast was very nice with quite a wide choice. Tasty and not greasy. The only negative is that this hotel is very tired and in need of a refurbishment to bedrooms, lobby, lounge, everywhere. The bedroom was very large and clean which is the main thing. It is just about worth the £74 per night that we paid, mainly because it allowed us to stay for just one night whereas many hotels are minimum two night stays. Its got a bus stop outside and an all day pass is £3.70 which is good value.

We stayed for 4 nights and overall it was fine.The hotel has a reasonable location,with a bus stop right outside the door with every bus going to the town centre.The room was spacious but some of the furniture is quite dated but the room was clean.The breakfast was cooked to order so you did not mind the 15 minutes wait.There were various options from the full english to continental.The staff were friendly and you got a warm welcome when you arrived.Drink prices in the bar were okay and was open all day.
