Just got back from three night stay with my husband. Anyone saying it needs updating is wrong loved the cosy lounge with massive old fire place . food was good. Room upgraded. Staff pleasant and helpful. Bus stop up road or ten min walk into York centre. Would defeniately stay again.

me and my wife stayed here for two nights, lovely little base for seeing the sights of york only about 10 mins walk to the city center and about the same distance from the train station. rooms are nice and decent size i did find it very warm at night with every radiator in the hotel on, but we just opened the windows which helped. all in all cant fault this hotel great value for money.

A truly beautiful hotel for my partner and I to spend a couple of days in york.. Room (236) was huge, great big ceilings, comfy bed and great bathroom. As soon as you walk into the hotel you can see the open fire in the lounge which gives it a really good feel. Staff are exceptional and very polite / helpful. Although the rooms are huge, and the heating is NOT on, the rooms are still very warm. We slept with the windows wide open in February and was still hot! We were told it was a 15 minute walk from York centre (that would be a very slow stroll)... my partner and I got there comfortably in 7-10 minutes. Fantastic location. Will certainly return. Bit if advice, 5 minutes down the road towards york centre (just on the corner before the york wall) there is a pub called the Punch Bowl (Wetherspoons).... fantastic breakfast!!!!!!

wonderful hotel, pleasant staff and within great distance to the city centre. lovely 10 minute walk with great views. late check in which was really convenient with our plans. will definitely stay here again

Limited official parking but plenty available near by. Slightly dated rooms, but decent value for the price. there was nothing to write home about, but I had no real complaints. Solidly average hotel, would stay again.

This is my 3rd stay here and it's worth the money this time we stayed in the new rooms in the court yard. We weren't disappointed room were clean and very modern the breakfast was £4 its a buffet style breakfast but plenty to choose from and tasty. Will definitely come again when visiting York.

Stayed here for one night and found it very nice. Outside there is limited parking spaces but can park on the side street nearby too. The hotel is very nicely located within 7 minute drive to the centre of York and the area was very quiet. On arrival we were greeted by some very friendly staff who were available 24/7 at reception, they did their job well and didn't keep up waiting at all. The lobby was beautiful with a large open fire and wooden staircase which added a nice calm atmosphere. The beds were comfortable and clean, with facilities to make tea and coffee. The bathroom was also very clean with a modern look to it. Enjoyed the stay and hope to come again soon.

Booked the hotel for both the price and location. The hotel was the most reasonably priced accommodation for our dates some £50 cheaper than similar places. The location was ideal, a 10 minute stroll to Micklegate/Railway station and the city 5 mins beyond . All the staff were extremely friendly especially the gent who was on duty for breakfast both days and also during the evening(sorry i did not get his name)The rooms were spotless a little dated but perfectly acceptable. We will defiantly book this hotel again

Stayed one night in a twin room which was comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. An old building from around 1870. The main building has 48 bedrooms then there's 12 more in the courtyard & across the road in the lodge there are 12 more. By foot it is approximately 15 minutes from the railway station.

Stayed here for one night for the first time end of January after dropping our bags off before we were able to check in we returned at teatime to complete check in and were upgraded to a superior double rooms looking out on to the courtyard. The rooms are superb pretty much brand new tastefully decorated. The only gripe being an inadequate heating system unfortunately. Maybe I am being harsh but in an English winter time will tell. The price was excellent value for York and its fifteen minutes walk to the railway or town centre. More than happy to return.
