Its a shame they charge to park. Having lived in york for a few years around 4 years ago (hence the many trips back to the area) i understand why they do that but maybe if it came standard with a room upgrade, or if they only allow 1 free car per room or something it would be more in line with other hotels in the area.
The building itself is gorgeous, that wall in the hallway is a beautiful addition.
3rd time staying, would definitely come back. The first room we had as excellent, best hotel room we have stayed in, there was a bath under neath the TV! 2nd time was a smaller room but still had everything we needed for our stay, and 3rd time (i think i ordered a standard room by mistake) the room was a little small but again, had everything we needed, high ceilings, modern feeling but still characterful and homely.
