Bought the experience for my mum for Mother's Day and she absolutely loved it. The whole experience was fabulous, the staff couldn't do enough, the theatrical experience was magnificent, hats off to the guys who put on the entertainment. The food was fabulous I can't wait to go back

My wife and I enjoyed a great 2 night break at this fabulous hotel. Its location is second to none being only a five minute walk from the station and a five to ten minute walk to the city centre. This hotel goes out of its way to make its clientele feel welcome. Our classic room was everything we could...

We chose to stay here to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We found a good deal as we're not usually the 5 star type. In fact I was a little worried that we would stand out as intruders but happily, I didn't feel uncomfortable at any point! The hotel left us a nice gift of chocolates and wine to help...

The spa was good but one Jacuzzi is not enough for so many guests. The main restaurant is good. Perfect location for York attractions. But surely for a 5 star you expect something extra...

Myself and my mum stayed here for 3 nights and booked with Secret Escapes. It was definitely one of our most relaxing stays at a hotel! We arrived by train to York at around 12:30pm so we walked to the hotel which was just a few minutes away from the station and asked about checking in. Our room wasn't ready...

Friendly staff, helpful Doormen - thank you Daniel for your recommendations - Concierge and scrupulously clean. Lovely Spa/pool/sauna/steam etc and central location within easy walking distance of the whole city. Fine dining for dinner and a wide range of choice for breakfast. I would definitely go again.
