I booked this for my parents for a birthday treat. They were looked after brilliantly, the room was spotless and BIG. I'd booked an accessible room and was worried in case it was a bit of a let down in comparison to their regular rooms. They enjoyed their stay so much - the food was brilliant as well; breakfast was amazing. As you can tell - not a bad word to say about it. Wish I'd gone there myself! Thanks for looking after them!

Went to stay for one night for wedding anniversary, Informed the hotel well in advance and that I am vegan and my husband vegetarian as we had booked for evening meal. The bedroom and bathroom were very nice, only shower though, Also the biscuits weren't suitable for vegans. When we went for evening meal, I was informed that that most of the vegetarian dishes could be 'made' vegan by taking off cheese or bread or cream! The seitan burger wasn't available so the I was told that the chef would make something else, not great though. Disappointed with lack of vegan options and no mention or token for our anniversary. Nice hotel, but little touches could be improved. Collapse

The hotel is very conveniently located adjacent to the York railway station and within walking distance of the town centre and other places of interest to visit. Our room was otherwise clean and organised but the bathroom had faulty basin tap and shower facilities. Though we stayed in for only 1 night and did report the faults at the reception at checkout, our overall experience in the hotel was positive. The room did not have air-conditioning but there was a bladeless fan which we used. The window was partly kept open and was difficult to close - hence there was outside noise especially as the room was close to the ground floor and facing the outer yard. The Event Centre was an excellent venue for a large party. The breakfast area was busy but organised and range of selections were excellent. Parking fee applies even as a hotel guest. Considering the price of the room that we paid, we expected a faultless service - however, considering the location etc. it was good though not excellent as we expected. Collapse

Stayed inroom 5206 at this hotel for 3 days to celebrate our 52nd wedding anniversary. The room is on the outer edge of the hotel so its a bit of a walk back to reception or dining room. The room was very nice, the bed comfortable and the bathroom which was spotlessly clean has a bath with overhead shower. There is no air conditioning in the room but in the wardrobe was a Dyson bladeless fan (which we used) and also an ironing board, iron and a hair dryer Behind the left hand door of the wardrobe is a fridge with a bottle of water and a small bottle of milk also a tray with kettle, cups and glasses and on a small table next to the window was a goody box with crisps biscuits tea and coffee sachets. There was a good choice of food in the Refectory restaurant for breakfast but its a very large space and the evening meal we had one night there was ok but because of its size the room lacks the ambience you get in a smaller dining room. We had food twice in the bar which on both occasions was very good and the staff were very helpful, also a thank you to the barman in the bow tie and red braces. Since I am the driver at home it was nice to try some cocktails without worrying about getting home All the staff we had contact with were always very pleasant I must thank Dhiini who was a waitress in the Refectory for giving us 2 glasses of Prosecco with our breakfast and also organising an anniversary card signed by the staff.
