I will start with what some people will consider negatives: 1. Duvet seemed to be made of synthetic fibres so got very hot during the night. Duvet cover is also open ended so duvet does not stay in place. 2. Toiletries were not replenished when the room was clean (although this was rectified straight away when I made the staff...

Arrived and provided with car parking at the adjoining Holgate Bridge. Had room 11 on top floor, good views of Minster - sadly we had sleet and rain so York not at its...

The place in general is tired and unattractive! Our room, described as one of the new rooms, according to the lady at reception, was in the next building across the car park. Room number 5 was on the top floor! As we walked in we were greeted by a horrible smell of dirty pillows, dirty carpet and the room was...

Wifi stopped working at 10pm when I was involved in an international Skype call. No one at reception, just a phone! I phone the number of the hotel from my iPhone only to be directed to a hotel next door. Unfortunately the lady who answered did not understand very much English and could only say to me - wifi!

We stayed in York for a weekend and manage to found a room in this establishment. The room was simple but good for the price. The staff was very warm and friendly (we spoke to Paul and Jeannette, hope i did not misspelled the names). They were nice enough to let us park the car for the day of return...

Stayed here for one night when we went to York for the Christmas markets. Got a very good deal through Booking.com Ideal location as only 10-15 minute walk into the city centre and has parking at the rear of the hotel. Very friendly welcome from the owner who gave us a map of the city and showed us the places...

My wife and I have been visiting York for Christmas for over 10 years now, staying in various B&Bs each time. They can be a bit hit and miss in York, so I’m happy to say this one is above average. We stayed in room 7, the new separate annex building to the rear of the car park. The spacious...

Visited 1st December 16 for one night, but although the trip was planned this wasn't where we supposed to be staying. The original hotel we booked a few weeks ago phoned on 30 November to advise no heating and hot water and gave choice of full refund with no penalty charge, half price or a free breakfast (as was room...
