We spent two nights here & were not disappointed. We upgraded our accommodation to The Langley Room! Fabulous! Lovely view of York Minster from the two windows. Very large & comfortable corner room. We stayed on a Bed & Breakfast basis & the breakfasts were superb. All the staff were exceptional, very welcoming & polite. Thoroughly recommend this hotel

We stayed here for my husbands 50th what a lovely hotel. They even brought him a box of chocolates up to the room when they knew it was his birthday. This is the perfect place to stay when visiting York right next to York minister. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is fantastic.

This was our second stay at this hotel and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The location is perfect. It is right across the street from York Minster and within walking distance to the city center and all the lovely shops and restaurants. The room was a comfortable size but a bit dated, and warm even...

Situated right next to York Minster this hotel is well placed and we loved hearing the mellow church bells chiming out the hours throughout the day but stopped around 7 pm. Very friendly and helpful staff, even carrying our heavy cases up to our room which was comfortable and spacious. Relaxing restaurant but food was disappointing. Fillet steak was rubbery...

Dear jeanbarryWales, Thank you for your "great situation" review, I am so pleased that you enjoyed the bells from the Minster which actually do stop chiming the hour at 8pm ( in the good old days the rang on the hour every hour ) and my friendly and helpful staff. On a more disappointing note I am saddened to read...

Beautiful hotel in a prime location with excellent staff. The location is across from York Minster. The restaurant and some rooms look onto the Minster. We were impressed by the efficient and friendly staff. We stayed in a "cozy room" so the bed was a tad small. On amenities, no conditioner and the shampoo and soap are in large dispensing...

Dear RJALSA, Thank you for your very nice review, I am glad that you thought our hotel was beautiful, undoubtedly the best located hotel in the City, and of course my amazing staff.

The hotel is located across from York Minister and close to all areas of central York. We were greeted by very friendly staff who carried our luggage to our room. The room was large and clean with fast internet, and was quiet (it was an interior room). The breakfast on offer was exceptional, with very friendly staff. Checking in and...

The hotel is located across from the York Minster Cathedral, one of the major tourist attractions in York, and is in walking distance to many other points of interest. We were at the hotel only one night and our room was apparently located in an old part of the hotel as evidenced by the squeaky floor everywhere we walked in...

Dear Robertff, Thank you for your recent review and I am sorry that your floor boards creaked, some would say all part of the character! The hotel was three separate houses for the Clergy visiting York Minster and was turned in to a 37 bed roomed hotel some 50 years ago, so actually the old wing and the new wing...

Location is perfect but that is the only thing going for this hotel. The room they put us in was like a oven.
