This was a mid week break booked through Secret Escapes. We thought the hotel was of a good quality and we had a largely enjoyable two night stay. York is a fascinating city with heaps of attractions. Our room (515) was of a good size and comfortable with heating adequate to cope with the very cold weather. The shower temperature was difficult to control though, with critical settings on the mixer. A very small adjustment would turn the water extremely hot or very cold. One of the bedside lamps did not work and one window had a broken sash chord and would not stay open. The most disturbing aspect of our stay was a very irritating, persistent low-pitched droning noise which started in the early morning on both days. It made our planned morning period of relaxation most uncomfortable..
The staff were friendly and helpful. The lady on reception took our complaint about the droning noise seriously and promised to report it to maintenance. She thought the noise may have come from the bathroom extractor next door. It seemed too powerful for a small fan though. Perhaps the fan in the kitchens? The Receptionist deducted the parking fees as compensation. The young lady who served our breakfast was delightful.
We might consider staying at Marmadukes again but certainly not in the same room unless the early morning noise problem was solved. Considering the wide choice of accommodation in York, we would think a return visit to Marmadukes unlikely.
