The hotel is situated on a busy motorway service area just off the A1 at J46. We stayed for two nights and after reading other reviews arranged for a top floor rear facing room. The room (238) was a reasonable size but the one lounge chair seemed to take up a lot of room next to the bed.
I found the bed a bit hard and I couldn't get comfortable with the pillows - I think it was because they were reasonably hard and so one was not enough but two was too much. There was no bath but a good wet room.
Breakfast is continental style, with the usual choice for that type of menu (croissants/toast/yoghurt/juice/tea/cheese/sliced ham/cereal etc). However, there are plenty of eating options at the food outlets in the service area if you require something more substantial. There are also a number of options for meals in nearby Wetherby where we ate both nights. York is around 13 miles away.
A surprise and disappointment was the fact the hotel is new and yet there's no room air conditioning. This meant that during one of the nights I had to open the window and the motorway noise was quite intrusive (but was fine with the window shut). You would expect air conditioning to be a standard fit these days. However, there is free wi-fi which is a bonus as most hotels of this nature seem to charge.
All staff were friendly and helpful and I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel for a short stop over.
