    Good position just out of town God access to city centre by bus Reasonably comfortable rooms Excellent breakfast included Friendly staff

    Should have been warned that the hotel was closing. Rather rundown (not surprising since we were among the last ever customers!) Pools were out of use. Little or no hot water

    we had a nice kingsize room

    my son had a chalet outside, which was so hot. We asked for a fan but there weren't enough. My daughter & family had a suite in the loft which had no opening window except the child's room .It was boiling hot, they did get a fan. The pool had been drained as the hotel would be closed that weekend. Furniture was removed , Breakfast was in the basement which smelt musty, we did not eat. The racecourse was opposite which was noisy as there was an event on. We were very disappointed as it was going to be a good last night of the holiday, with leisure facilities. Booked months ago. I think we should have been told beforehand about them closing next day.

    The bed was huge. Very comfortable. Good location for the races.

    Out of two rooms we got one big one and one tiny one with no proper window. The bar closes at 10pm

    Leaving.

    Booked the executive room and there was no running cold water, had to move to a smaller room which seemed very worn. No restaurant and no swimming pool due to water contamination.

    very tired, room advertised as ensuite and instead was a weird combination of bedroom with sink in it and separate loo and separate shower cubicle off bedroom. Nasty carpet in toilet and room had stains. Very disappointing as not cheap.

    The staff were friendly The breakfast was very good

    The room was not clean, stained sheets, black sludge on the shower cubicle, rusted pipes. The door was not secure. We come out of the pool with a blue dye on our hands and feet.

    Breakfast room was nice, food on offer was varied and very nice. Staff were friendly.

    Hotel in need of lots of TLC - looking very tired and unkempt. Found out during our stay that it is being sold to be developed into flats which is presumably why no work has been done on the décor. Swimming pool and Jacuzzi weren't clean - we didn't linger.

    good breakfast, comfortable beds, helpful staff

    attic rooms very small and uncomfortable to do anything (make tea, unpack). Bathroom impossible to have a shower as the handheld shower attachment was not long enough to use where you could just about stand up. Understand this hotel has been sold and is closing at the end of July

    I liked the actual building and the size of the room and bed. Location was jusr right for a good walk into the city (1.5 miles).

    No restaurant (did not know until arrival) and everything in general was a bit "tired". No drat beer/lager and bottled beer only sold until 10.00pm

    Location Staff were very friendly Liked the full English breakfast

    Knavesmire is a beautiful place to stay in,with lots of character, friendly staff and a real gem of a find. We're so sorry to hear that it's going over to developers;such a shame for this gorgeous place. For our daughter,she was more than thrilled to have her own room(we stayed in the Rowntree Suite) instead of sharing with mum & dad! Only a few niggles;our daughter's room had a window she could open whereas we only had the fire escape door which we couldn't leave open-it got a bit stuffy,so we left our bedroom door open. The radio reception wasn't fab,but just these 2 things were far outweighed in so much as we wanted to stay longer and were very sad to leave. A fantastic stay at a warm and friendly hotel.

    As I mentioned above- no opening window in our room & radio reception.
