Just returned from a lovely break in this great hotel. The staff here are amazing. Everyone is pleasant and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. There seems to be a good atmosphere amongst them too which you don't always get in city hotels. We stayed in the Langley Suite as a treat for a special occasion and...

Recently returned from a four night break with friends at this lovely little hotel. Two things set it apart from the crowd.....its position and its staff. Without exception members of staff go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and to offer an excellent level of service. We stayed in a cosy double which looked over the Minster...

Birthday treat for my husband. From the beginning the hotel helped me make this special, thanks to Simon & crew. Room recently upgraded and really nicely done. A unique layout with lots of small corridors, makes it feel more cosy than the bland anonymous larger chain hotels. Fab location next to Minster and short walk from train station. In the...

I visited York when I was younger and my partner hadn't been for quite some time either. We both had vague memories that York was a beautiful city so decided to book a one night stay for my 22nd birthday, my partner's 25th birthday and Valentines Day. We wanted a hotel with close proximity to the city amenities and I...
