My boyfriend and I stopped off in York for one night on the way back to London. I am so glad I was not put off by the horrendous website - it really doesn't show the hotel to it's best. The building and premises were immaculately turned out. The decorations were really tasteful for the building, for such a big place, everything seems very homely and relaxing. And at the same time as us on our little weekend jaunt, there was also a wedding party being catered for - and their big event didn't tarnish our stay at all. There is room for everyone.
The service from the staff was top notch. I had an excellent cocktail in the bar. Our breakfast was perfect. The rooms themselves were lovely, a good size... The only thing my boyfriend could complain about was the aspect ratio wasn't perfect on the TV! He said for the level of hotel it should be sorted. I would definitely stay there again despite this tragedy. :)
The mini bar had an interesting selection of drinks - champagne, beer, snacks and Nespresso machine in every room. Bathrooms had under floor heating and huge shower roses.
We didn't eat at the restaurant so cannot comment on the dinner, but highly recommended!
