Booked 2 double rooms for one night. Had everything we needed. Free parking was great and walking distance into York. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Would stay again, definitely great value for money.

Stayed here for 3 nights, great place to stay near the city centre, with parking which was a priority. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were excellent, friendly anfpd helpful. Would recommend to anyone.

Stayed here several times. Love this place. Came recently during our honeymoon having booked the romantic package. Cannot fault the hotel. All staff we have met whenever we have visited have been friendly and helpful. We don't even consider staying anywhere else in York. Looking forward to being back for our first anniversary!

we were in room 11A which is right at the top - 59 stairs so no good if you think you might struggle! Great exercise though! Room was very comfortable, breakfast was wonderful and the staff friendly, very helpful and efficient. The hotel is less that 10 mins walk to the Minster so very easy access to the city centre

The price and the location were the best things about this hotel. It was a little dated. The room was a decent size and since the only time we really spent in there was to sleep, it was fine. Just needs a bit of a spruce; was a bit old fashioned. Everything was clean and the staff were helpful. Breakfast...

Great location for all the main attractions. Staff were warm and welcoming from the off. Breakfast was wonderful. Only down side was that when we arrived the room was cold as radiator was off. We had to ask for a heater to try and get the room warm as it was taking ages for the radiator to kick in. Also...

A lovely little hotel just a 5min walk from the centre of York. Very quiet for being so close to the busy city! Loved the four poster bed in the room, old fashioned but lovely! Breakfast the following morning was fantastic, could have eaten my body weight in croissants!! Only downside was the parking... yes it is free but the...

Comfortable room. Beautiful environment. Friendly staff and well located. It's just a short walk from the York Minster. We really enjoyed our short stay here. But we didn't appreciate the fire alarm going off at 6am!

Overview Stairs and more stairs. This Hotel does not have a lift and has 3 floors, each floor with 2 double back stair cases. There are rooms on the back (outside of the main building) Most appear to be ground level, specify one of these if you struggle with stairs. This is a very clean and well run hotel. Very...

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel following your recent stay, my apologies that you were in any disappointed with any aspect. It is always frustrating when a booking comes through a third party booking site as we do not have the opportunity to explain which rooms are available and where they are located, we do have...
