York Holiday Reviews

York Minster

The city of York is easily one of the UK's most popular short break destinations. Thousands of visitors flock to see this picturesque city each year for its fascinating history, fabulous shopping and a whole wealth of great attractions too. Our superb range of York hotels offer an ideal retreat after a long day of shopping and sightseeing. The medieval city is compact and easy to explore, the gorgeous York Minster, Clifford's Tower, the famous cobbled street The Shambles and the Jorvik Viking Centre are all within easy walking distance of most central hotels in York.

  • York Minster sits at the very heart of York and dominates the city skyline. One of Britain's best medieval cathedrals, highlights of the Minster include the spectacular Heart of Yorkshire window, the Norman foundations in the crypt and the 275 step ascent to the top of the tower.
  • Lying just a short drive from the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, York provides the perfect base to explore stunning North Yorkshire scenery. Walk the North Sea coast from Filey to Scarborough or tackle Yorkshire's three peaks near Skipton.
  • York boasts a thriving food and drink culture which includes many fine restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes. Try Skosh's small plates or street food in the Shambles Market. A hotbed of the craft beer revolution, York has two breweries within the city walls in Brew York and York Brewery, a visit to their taprooms is not to be missed.
Our York hotels benefit from great transport links and the city is an excellent choice for a rail break. Ideally placed on the high speed East Coast Mainline, York is a mere two hours from London and only two and a half hours from Edinburgh. A city with a proud heritage, the terrific National Railway Museum is one of York's busiest attractions or, to add something extra to your stay, be sure to take a scary York Ghost Walk for a short break with a difference.

Short Break in York

Stay Date: 22/05/06, a customer from Westcliff-On-Sea who stayed at 3* Holiday Inn York in York wrote this review.

Use the Park & Ride if visiting York by car,and then go on the Tour Bus of York, as it gives you a good idea of the history of York. A must to visit is the Minster and the Crypt. The Railway and the See More  Read more information Castle Museums are also a must,as is the Jorvik Viking Centre.   Collapse  Hide

Perfect Ladies Weekend!

Stay Date: 06/04/07, a customer who stayed at 3* Holiday Inn York in York wrote this review.

First of all, there is so much to do in York you really do need a good few days to take it all in! We only had 2 days and having lived in York previously, i had a few tricks up my sleeve. If the See More  Read more information weather is sunny then i would recommend a long stroll around the Museum Gardens. with its stunning background of the old Abbey, landscaped lawns and the river below, it is the perfect way to pass a sunnyafternoon. Carrying on the 'lazy Sunday afternoon' theme, The Kings Arms by the riverside is the place to go for an ice cold drink. providing there are no chances of flashfloods you should be ok atthis popular spot. Sit on the quayside, relax and chat - speaks for itself really! Alternatively, for a more metropolitan feel, head to the highly stylish Pitcher and Piano. this boasts an excellentcocktail menu, great food and stunning terrace oerlooking the river. You can never struggle to find somewhere to eat in York, it really does have some excellent restaurants. Tuscany in St Mary's Squareis a fantastic place for an early evening light dinner. the menu promises the best in contemporary Italian cuisine and certainly hits the mark at a price that won't break the bank. For an equallyexotic and mouthwatering experience, try tapas (as i did for the first time) at La Tasca. great prices and lunchtime deals are to be had here and weather permitting, you can dine out on the roof terrace.Set away for the main streets, its a very relaxing place to spend whiling away the hours...thinking of spain! No trip to York would be complete without afternoon tea at Betty's. This award winningtea rooms is like stepping back in time. Full silver service and a selection of cakes to die for this is a must for any York visitor. Whether seated upstairs in the opulant glass panelled tea room, ordownstairs in the luxurious 'back to Titanic' wood panelled saloon, you will never forget Betty's. The tea rooms also have a shop open to the general public, selling a huge variety of cakes, scones andpastries. Watch out for seasonal events that happen at Betty's too, but be prepared for a short wait to be seated, as this is a very popular attraction. Its worth the wait, trust me! No ladiesweekend would be complete without a spot of serious shopping. Coney Street, just off St Mary's Square, holds the best in high street fashion. for a more unique shopping trip, visit old Stonegate and TheShambles. Filled with Medieval and Elizabethan topsy turvy houses this is a real insight into 'ye old York'. some really quaint and unique specialist shops are found in these parts and it is well wortha look. Alternatively, take in the breathtaking Minster. Gothic decoration aplenty and packed full of history the Minster is a must. If you fell tough enough you can visit the crypts and climb thespiral stairs to the top of this magnificent building. This is the view of York and is worth the long climb. If you are feeling even more adventurous, then by the National Railway Museum you will findthe new 'York Eye'. based around the London Eye this will give you an interrupted view of York in all its glory and comes highly recommended. The list could go on for things to see and do in York, butour perfect ladies retreat could not have been more...well, perfect!   Collapse  Hide

Great Family Short Break In York

Stay Date: 10/04/07, a customer who stayed at 3* Holiday Inn York in York wrote this review.

We had a fantastic break in York with our two daughters, aged 11 and 8. Our main aim was to go to Flamingo land which turned out to be the least favourite part of our holiday although the girls did See More  Read more information enjoy it. We stayed in the Holiday Inn on Tadcaster Road which was ideally situated . It was a short, interesting walk into York. Our deal included breakfast which was excellent with every possibleitem on offer from fresh fruits and yoghurt to a full cooked breakfast. We loved York. It is a beautiful and varied city with something different on every corner. Everything is within walking distancewhich made it really ideal for a short break as you could easily visit more than one attraction in one day.We were particularly impressed with the National railway museum and Yorkshire wheel.   Collapse  Hide

York - Worth A Visit

Stay Date: 13/04/07, a customer who stayed at 3* Holiday Inn York in York wrote this review.

A great weekend in York with blazing hot sunshine, good company, good food, good drinks and a nice ambience. Spring was in the air. There were old couples, young couples, singles, families, every See More  Read more information nationality you could think of and lots of smiling faces. From the ladies in the park drinking with the hen to the old boy selling the big issue everyone was having a great time. Whether it be theCathedral, the museum, shopping at lakeland plastics or having a pint, I would happily go back to York for another weekend.   Collapse  Hide
