Firstly can I say the staff there are lovely. A warm friendly welcome and very helpful. The hotel is located about a 25 minutes walk from the city centre, restaurants and bars. It is the right side of the city for the horse racing. There is a swimming pool and steam room and the car park at the rear is...

We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who showed us to our room. We had room 1, a four poster which was clean and comfortable, not overly spacious but fine for a weekend. Room had two chairs and small table - ideal for coffee. Refreshment tray well stocked. Bathroom was a decent size and clean. The bar area was...

We stayed here for one night whilst in york for a party. The hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. The entrance hall is lovely and there is a pool. Our room was perfectly acceptable but old and tired (especially the bathroom) which was disappointing for £157.50 a night. It was clean however and nice tea/coffee facilities. The highlight for us...

Good location for a short break in York. Not over priced either. Friendly staff, clean modern rooms. The bar and restaurant are located in the basement. Very quiet down there. Most people are walking into York to eat, so don't be suprised if you are the only one in the bar area.

We stayed here for one night, it cost £125 which included the room, pool facilities and breakfast. The welcome was great and staff were consistently good throughout our stay. The room was spacious, with a four poster bed. The bathroom was spotless and we enjoyed the little extras (drinks, iron, hairdryer). However, it needs modernising as the furniture and decor...

We chose to stay here as it was a good price for the date we wanted and the swimming pool was an important feature. The pool is a large enough for a good swim (10 x 5 m), which I enjoyed before breakfast. The bed was very comfortable. It still has an olde world feel and the floorboards really creak!...

Great hotel, wonderful staff and fantastic facilities. 15min walk from city centre. Room was clean and shower was great! We will definitely stay here again when visiting York. Breakfast had good selection and could alter to suit.
