    I loved the ambience and tranquility and the feeling of reverence. I will stay there again when I revisit York

    My room backed onto the lift which tended to rattle a lot

    Staff very helpful, room pristine and continental breakfast made me and daughter fit to bust, the quality was topnotch. Husband had full english he said this was one of the best he'd had. A look around at the chapel and museum was great, worth a visit for anyone.

    The only downside was a shared bathroom, but as it was next door was not a problem.

    The very personal welcome we received, not only from the house manger but all the staff. Proximity to the city was perfect.

    If you're a tourist and have a hire car, parking is very difficult, and costs.

    Quiet, Nice people. Good Breakfast although not included.

    No room that costs £106 room only should come without en suite facilities. Three floors up with no lift. No TV and No parking. No check procedure. If they had not crammed a single bed into the already small room. They could have put in en suite facilities .

    Across the street from the car park. Great location. Unique charm. Housekeeping was very helpful. Closer to car park than the Premier Inn and much cheaper.

    Receptionist was slow and not very helpful. Room on street was noisy.

    Very convenient and easy to find. Reception staff really helpful finding us a safe place to store our bikes. A different and interesting type of place to stay. Basic but clean and warm bedroom - just as expected! Great breakfast.

    After a busy afternoon exploring York I could come back and rest in a delightful garden or in my very comfy room. The staff were all very cheerful and helpful.

    One felt safe as it is a nunnary.

    Rooms very basic, need updating. Car park cost £31.50 for two days. Should have booked a better hotel with parking.

    At the last minute I booked a night at the Bar Convent. It was an excellent place to stay. Very clean and such a quite place. I had a lovely evening there and enjoyed my breakfast the next day

    The only problem I had was I booked in on the sunday and when I arrived it was during a closed door time there so I had to call. Fortunately someone was around and I was able to check in there and then which was good as id travelled up from Weston superare

    Accessibility

    Very expensive- Shared toilet facilities at a rate of £106/night for a family room is not comparable to market values. Also, the room is very basic. The continental breakfast provided is too basic- the option of full English breakfast at the cost was expected
