            Swimming pool.

            1. The shower was slightly faulty. 2. The breafast bacon was tatless and tough. My wife found raw onion i her saled. The taste remained with her for several. On reporting this she received only an apology.

          • Group of friends

            Staff were friendly and very helpful. The menues for meals were varied and well cooked.

            I upgraded to an executive room and was disappointed with it. It was less than I expected for an executive room. It would have been nice to have a Courtesy Bus to take patrons into the town centre. As a disabled person it was just that little bit too far out of town for me to walk.

          • Older travelers

            The location was excellent. A 5 min walk along the river and you were in the middle of York. Reception staff good.

            We had to queue for breakfast on the Bank Holiday monday. Totally unorganised. Had to wait for glasses and plates. I would have thought they would have known hown many were booked in and allowed for this. The lounge/reception is very 'geared up' for kids with a Wii etc. As a couple we wanted a relaxing lounge to sit in before dinner - this isnt possible.

          • Older travelers

            The childrens play area was right next to the bar/restuarant, this meant that adults had nowhere to sit quietly with a drink etc.

          • Family with children

            I liked the cleanliness, the staff were very courteous and the city centre was well within walking distance.

            Even though I have three children myself, it would perhaps be nicer if the kids entertainment was not in the lobby but in a separate room adjacent to this area.

            Warmly greeted by staff, excellent car park, stylish room, good location.

            Having the childrens' area overlapping the bar area.

            Staff were very friendly and helpfull,modern lobby rooms were good for the price we paid.

            Breakfast was poor especially if the full price had been paid,luke warm,poor ingreidients and some trays empty,there was still 45mins till breakfast finished

          • Single

            It was friendly and the staff were excellent. The rom was large and very good value. The 'chocolate experience' dessert was very good!

            The fact you have to pay for parking. If there were no parking facilities it would restrict people staying in the hotel with cars as there is nowhere to park nearby so it seems like a no-brainer to me.

          • Older travelers

            Good sized room and bathroom. Its central location to the city centre. Clean and well maintained ideal for a short break.

            The mattress on the bed had been well used and perhaps it was ready to be changed and would of appreciated another pillow in the room.

          • Older travelers

            Nice location - beside river and set back from roads and traffic. Hotel clean, staff efficient and friendly. Food tasty but bit overpriced. Nice to have a dip in the pool. Bathroom nice and modern, nice shower.
