Score from 1031 reviews Very good
Breakfast was very good Staff were friendly Decent standard of room, spacious and clean Close to walls and York centre
Free Wi-Fi very slow and intermittent signal in our room Windows need replacing, street noise of busy road
Obviously the location, and breakfast was plentiful and very nice. Staff where helpful when our friends requested pillows, irons etc.
My wife and my friend fell down a hole in the floorboards on the first floor, which we reported immediately. At no point did any of the staff ask if we where OK or injured?
No opening window in room
The hotel is situated right in the middle of the centre, therefore it is very convenient for all your activities around the town without being far from anywhere you might want to go for sightseeing, shopping or dining. Breakfast was very good, full English was of a very high quality and plenty of it. There was a choice of continental too. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The Wi-Fi was non existent in our part of the hotel. There was no reception available in our room. The hotel is very dated and there was very sporadic use of the central heating. Hot in the morning but rather chilly for the rest of the day. Although we didn't spend much time in the room during the day it was noticeable when we returned in the evenings. The bed was huge but my husband found it too hard. I though it was OK but could definitely improve. Having said that, I understand that the hotel will be undergoing a major refurbishment this summer, so I guess all those problem will be rectified and, presumably, the stars will be raised too.
The hotel is in an excellent central location. Facilities are very good. A good variety and choice for breakfast. Nearby car parking at a good rate.
room was no ready when I arrived - no problem. My bags and dinner suit were left at reception to be taken up when the room was ready When I went to the room the suit was not hung up in the wardrobe - but left on the floor.
Hotel was very nice, location was great
£130 a nite a but overpriced. Would not stay again for that price
I thought the hotel was in a great location to reach everything York has to offer! The hotel catered for all our needs which made it pleasant.
We were in the section which is set to be renovated and you could really tell. The floor boards were very loud and the decor was very dated.
Traffic noise was quite intrusive at times.
Good hotel excellent rooms good staff nice breakfast
Only gripe is having to find a car park as no parking at hotel but it was being refurbished so may be when finished there will be some
Location Friendly staff large rooms
dated decor and facilities bathroom too basic could have been so much better with the space available VERY noisy at night
The staff were attentive and very helpful . Restaurant food very good but I was alone in the restaurant for most of the evening ! very comfortable room and really quiet .
Radiator was jammed on max and red hot to touch so room was uncomfortably hot . staff with tools managed to turn off so room gradually cooled .Just as well or I would have been 'well done ' by the morning .Plumbing upgrade planned cannot be soon enough !
I like the location and the helpful staff
The accommodation was tired and in need of updating. The floors are awful with creaky broken boards. You need a Sherpa to get to your room.... up three stairs, down three then up 8.... and that's the first floor after using the lift! Quant, retro, tired....
Staff friendly room clean
No shower large bath. Thought hotel was overpriced
Great place to stay. Staff excellent and food excellent definitely be staying again
The staff were obliging and we had a lovely room
No car parking facilities, which we knew about due to building works. we were told we would get vouchers for the near by car park. No mention about having to pay five pounds per day though.
food the size of the bed, the surroundings, the location, all round very good.
We enjoyed the buffet style the first morning but the Monday morning wasn't very good, our friends had to complain more than once, we did get free parking for the weekend so that was a bonus, other than that everything was lovely, we would use the hotel again.
The hotel was beautiful, so was the room we stayed in. Staff were lovely. The location was perfect, only a short walk into the centre. Also very close to a few attractions like the jorvik centre, york chocolate story, york dungeon and the shambles.
Cleaning off room not the best Towels were not changed on a daily basis
Excellent location as I had limited time in York and I wanted to see as much of the city as possible.
Room was comfortable and clean, bathroom was serviceable but could do with updating, shower water temperature wasa bit erratic although bath water was fine.
The location and the breakfast both food and service.
Having to park in a public car park something hidden under extra information on the web site.The beds were very uncomfortable and the duvet was ridiculously narrow.The WiFi didn't work in the bedroom. The grip strips for the carpet were visible between the beds adding to the generally tired and shabby atmosphere.
Breakfast Services at the hotel(restaurant and bar) Location Value for money
Some rooms where a bit old-fashioned. But the hotel is going through refurbishement
Large, well appointed room with comfortable beds. Excellent service at dinner and breakfast.
Liked the help and friendliness of the staff, breakfast-room and reception in particular. Buffet menu also very good.
Our bedroom was an attic one – too easy to bump your head. On arrival, the heating was much too high after a boiler renewal. The toilet was for some reason at junior-school level and the shower heating fluctuated quite suddenly.
The hotel is great good location staff very friendly
The parking is no longer available as they are having an extension which is unfortunate have to park in a multi storey which a pain
