Stayed for 2 nights late May. Usual Premier Inn standard of room, warm, clean, comfortable, tidy and excellent staff to match. Has a lift which can save struggling upstairs with suitcases. The hotel is located very close to the A64 which makes access to various routes easy but also creates noise, however the double glazed windows with secondary glazing keep most of the noise out. While we were there our room had its air conditioning switched on so it is possible to shut out the noise but still have "fresh" air. If visiting anywhere in York then use the "Park & Ride" system, free parking and cheap return bus fares. Traffic in York is slow and the ring road when we visited was being improved so traffic moves slowly. The car park had a number of spaces given over to containers used by work men, possibily those installing the air con but this did result in a shortage of parking spaces. Car parking was made a little difficult by the ocassional "White Van Man" as the spaces don't cater for Sprinter vans.
The hotel has some 60 rooms but the restaurant is small. If you want an evening meal then I would suggest you a) check out the Thyme menu as it is a little different too the usual Whitbread Brewers Fayre/Beefeater and b) book a table. If needed there is a Brewers Fayre a few miles away on the ring road.
At breakfast the small restaurant causes delays in seating guests when a number of guests arrive at similar times. This was half term week so a number of children were present and this may have added to the lack of seating. No where to walk to and nothing to do in the evening other than watch television.
