My girlfriend had booked this for my birthday as neither of us had visited York before. The hotel is in a great central location just across the way from one of York's walls. On our arrival we were greeted by very friendly and helpful reception staff and as we arrived early our bags were taken care off and we were...

Stayed here for a couple of nights, arrived early so left our luggage with the concierge. Once checked in, our room was impressive, very large and with a huge cavernous bathroom! We visited the spa for a swim and a steam which was very nice and ate in the restaurant the first evening and we are so glad we did!...

Everything about this hotel is wonderful. On a short walking distance from the train station and from most of the attractions. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Luxurious amenities, free mineral water, complimentary tea, coffee and sweets. Very friendly, respectful and professional staff. The only complaint might be that I had to pay 20 pounds for a lare check-out. Although...

This hotel is just steps out of the city center - the staff, bar, restaurant and rooms are excellent! The rooms are huge as well as the spa-like bathrooms - just beautiful!!! My only complaints are: 1. In a hotel that boasts luxury - artificial flowers are unacceptable. 2. The elevator makes you feel as though you're being interrogated -...

I fail to see how anyone couldn't be impressed by this place. First class service and excellent facilities throughout. There may well be cheaper hotels in york but that's simply because they are not as good as this one. You get what you pay for and you can't ask for more than that. Highly recommended.
