The bed was comfortable enough.
Had to be moved room as the room we were allocated was filthy, cobwebs all over the walls, wallpaper hanging off, drawer handles missing, dirty toilet, black grout on tiles in the bathroom. Second room not much better, light fittings broken, missing bulbs, soap in plug hole in the shower, black grout on the tiles again, broken sofa, toilet flush broken, paint peeling off inside bathroom door, room not serviced during our stay. Wiring needing looked at, extension cables on full view, lights flickering constantly due to poor wiring possibly. Kettle lead not long enough to reach socket so kettle had to be boiled in the cupboard.
The hotel was in York place not west end as we had booked , no problem to us, it was in fact better for us , being nearer the town and we were given free upgrade,and notice the week before travel , very pleasant staff lovely room with beautiful bathroom..very comfortable stay..we would stay again,, on our last trip we stayed at the Carlton Hotel ,but we would rather stay at The Ballantrae York place ..
everything is very nice
Lovely staff, fabulous room. We were worried for the price of only £49 it might not be up to much. We actually had a lounge area in our room! Would definitely stay again.
Friendly and helpful staff Quiet location but not too far from the centre if you don't mind a walk
A bit expensive - but it was Hogmanay; enough said!
Great value, great location, very convenient for everything
The breakfast options, there wasn't much choice. And spending this price, we expected cooked eggs, or bacon at least.
Nice little hotel, updating needed. Didn't see much of staff. We were in room ten which is under the kitchen, so from 630am it gets noisey. The bar didn't seem to be open.
Noise from kitchen No parking facilities
loose tiles in bathroom, cobwebs in bedroom
It is clean although a bit difficult to find it.
The wireless internet, is almost u seless.
The hotel was in a great location, not too far away from the centre, but far enough away to be quiet. A beautiful building, old fashioned but beautiful. All the staff were lovely and helpful.
We would of liked a better breakfast option, but for the price it was good. the rooms was generally clean, however in some areas, ie under the bed was very dusty.
The location of the hotel
No lift is there to move luggage upstairs.
location bed bathroom
cellar room peeling wallpaper lack of tee and milk on the second day very poor help with parking locations, I was given directions on a map to a car park by a member of staff and the car park had been under construction for at least two weeks. On returning to the hotel another member of staff was not too helpful with any advice on parking facilities. This was not a good start to a weekend break, I think the staff at the hotel should be able to give visitors as much information on anything required
Just the location.
The breakfast was pathetic. Stale croissants. No variety. Just cold stuff. Definitely not worth paying for. Bathroom doors broken.
Very friendly and professional staff. Very comfortable room.
I was on the top floor. This was unsuitable for me. I asked to be changed on arrival but was offered a different room five days later. I will choose a hotel with a lift in future. Also wi fi totally unreliable - 'only in common areas'.
The location is great with easy access to train station, Princes Street and bus links. Friendly staff, and they did react quickly to easily fixed issues (broken shower adjuster, fan in the bathroom and missing light bulbs). The size was good and it house has a great potential to be great but renovations need to be done, especially in the room/rooms. Common area was fine.
The room, no. 10, needs to be painted and wall paper changed/fixed. Tiles in bathroom broken, toilet didn't flush properly, ceiling has some paint/water damage, the curtains close both the cold from the window but also the heat from the radiator. The room is next to the kitchen which was noisy during while breakfast was being prepared on weekdays (ok on weekends). The room really smelled of strong incense.
building / location
Good location, great staff, good sized room and very accommodating with guests.
Room outdated, needs repair ... toilet did not flush properly and bathroom slightly dirty.
Nice big cosy room and continental breakfast was excellent
We had no remote for TV I asked a you chap who was not very helpful therefore had to stand on a stool to put TV on. Also they should provide a small bin in dining room for the empty cereal boxes
The girl at reception offer to iron my shirt, location, size of room, style of room, style of the hotel.
I needed to use the ironing board, which was in a pretty poor state of repair. The bedroom door had at sometime in the past been forced open and the door latch was in poor repair, which made me question security here. The bathroom has a shower over the bath which was pretty weak and at the wrong end of the bath ie the slopey end. Carpet and general decor was a bit unkempt. When i asked if a taxi could be booked for me i was given a telephone number instead. Would i use it again?... more likely to look for somewhere a bit more up to date. Also, it hasn't really got any atmosphere, no out-going personality.
Great stay overall. Powerful hot shower. Very warm room. Clean well-done bed sheets. Nice looking paper wall and a classic overall room with a nice character.
located in quiet, residential street but less than 5 minutes from station, airport bus and local transport.staff were very nice.
Listed building so no lift.
Bed size The willingness of the personel to help with any request we had. Great location near bus stops and without noises
Problems with wi-fi occured sometimes.
Spacious rooms, clean & well presented
The fruit & fruit juices at breakfast were not particularly appetising.
