        Individual guest reviews

        • Perfect location for the city, pleasant welcome and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and breakfast was superb. The evening dinner to be fair was very good and well presented.

          Patterned shower curtain and pillows a bit hard.

        • Very convenient for shops, lovely hotel and very good rate considering. Staff friendly at check in, a very quiet spot, the rooms we had are quirky, we had a bathroom downstairs and and the chef again supplied a great buffet to end a fantastic day.

          An awfully uncomfortable bed and pillows very hard. Limited menu.

        • Central to all shops, the staff are ready and able to help in every avenue, a great hotel for a lovely weekend in York. The rooms are simply amazing, the food is very good too.

          Busy road and the very poor building infrastructure. The shower was excellent.

        • The location was good and the hotel was very convenient for the city centre. The staff were extremely helpful, room was warm and service in the bar was professional and pleasant and we sat in the courtyard to enjoy our drinks. The breakfast choice was excellent.

          Car park spaces limited and the spaces are tight, window too high to see out of.
