My friend and I stayed here on a weekend trip with David Urquhart Coach Tours. I had read a few of the reviews on here which weren't very complimentary. We loved it! Yes it's an old building and parts of it are a bit tired, but it was beautiful, we loved the stained glass windows, the leather sofas in the...

I paid through the website (as they offer 10% off) and when i arrived they upgraded me to the next room...

I stayed just one night in connection with work. The reception area is nice and th building obviously has history. That is part of the problem - the rooms are also historic. My bed was reasonably comfortable but the headboard was loose and banged on the wall every time i moved. Sleep was not continuous! My colleagues and i didnt...

We stayed for a Birthday treat and what a fantastic hotel, oak panelling, old world charm, with a stained glass windows. Staff were very friendly, they even showed us around the downstairs rooms. It would make fabulous wedding venue, shame we live so far away. You don't visit york to stay in a travelodge, we like character in keeping with...

A lovely welcome by reception staff and beautiful main areas with an open fire place and huge ceilings. Up a lovely rather grand staircase, however the room was definitely dated and in need of refurbishment. I understand that the hotel would want to keep it's main features with the style of the building, however the room was rather bland, but...

The hotel is lovely and old. Has a good feel about it but I had the worst sleep ever. Beds are tiny and covers don't fit properly. The beds are rock solid and the windows don't close so you hear the loud traffic outside at night. Not a good stay

Think the hotel should look at the way they describe hotel, as we can not read anywhere is states book this hotel, but you will stay in anorher property we own accross the road.?? The main building looked good, the building over the road looked and smelt run down, even live wires hanging down as picture below.

Stayed here with my husband for my birthday on 28th April. After reading recent reviews I was very worried how we would find the hotel in regards to the rooms. I couldn't be happier to report our room a superior room in the courtyard was extremely clean, more or less brand new throughout with nice touches, fridge with juice n...
