We arrived by train from London and it was an easy walk of less than 10 minutes to the hotel. Check in was quick and pleasant, and the room pure joy. Actually, it was the heated floor in bathroom and the rain shower that made it so special. Our room (which we could never remember the name of) faced the back parking lot and was very quiet.
One night we took advantage of the special restaurant offer in their bistro - terrific. Two courses for 2 people plus bottle of wine for 35 pounds.
Walk into town took us about 15 minutes at a good pace - wished it was a little closer but as the hotel was literally right on the open bus tour, that worked for us. My husband coerced me into a ghost tour in the evening, and it was okay...laughed a few times and spent the rest of the time figuring out how much the guide could be making in the summer months. There must have been 50-60 people signing up for the 1-hr tour.
At the end of the visit we rented a car from the train station and visited the Yorkshire Dales, beautiful.
This hotel was recommended to us by a York resident, and they sure knew what they were talking about.
