We arrived in York by train and it is a short 10 minute walk to the hotel. The staff here are very friendly and helpful, attentive and polite. There is a central bar in the old building with a good selection of beers and ales (12-15 I would guess) and lots of quirky little rooms in which to sit and...

Wonderful service by all staff involved in helping us to organise a surprise 60th birthday extravaganza. Beautiful building, lovely architecture with many quirky features inside. The garden terrace was perfect for drinks and nibbles pre-meal. All staff very polite, courteous and accommodating, bringing our restaurant reservation forward when the heavens opened which meant we could no longer sit outside without...

My daughter and I met with a friend for lunch. It was disappointing in every way. Especially the service, which was so poor it was at the point of being absent. It took half an hour of sitting at our outside table on a hot sunny day before I had get up to remind the waitress (who was looking bored...

Many plus points. Attentive staff, well appointed rooms, lovely terrace and good breakfast. On the negative side twin rooms are noisy in the early morning and lack of parking is a real issue. On balance the five of us, all race going senior males, enjoyed it and have booked again for next year.

I visited this hotel as a single man and left a married man. Not something that happens everyday. This gave me a unique view of the Hotel being able to review it as a solo traveler and as part of a couple.

I honestly can't fault it. A fine historic building, with good clean rooms, excellent food and friendly efficient staff. What more does one need from a hotel. If you are a tourist, it's slap bang in the middle of where you want to be.
