The hotel is located a bit more than 5 minutes walking from the city center. The crew is very kind and helpful and my children enjoyed the swimming pool. The breakfast buffet is nice and the restaurant is big enough to allow you to find a table easily. The rooms are clean and are confortable and convenient. We will come...

As a last minute treat we decided to spend a little more time in York travelling over on Sunday staying until Tuesday morning. We arrived earlier than our due arrival time but it wasn't a problem as there were rooms available of the standard we had booked and we were quickly registered,in our room and unpacked. We chose not to...

Stayed over for AGM and Dinner. Pleasant staff at reception and bar. Nice clean,spacious and comfortable room. The dinner was pretty good given the constraints of mass catering. All in all a good experience and we would happily return.

The hotel is very easy to get to, yes parking a charged but that is the normal for the area and easy enough to park or walk from station. Location to get into the main attractions is excellent.

Nice room, great location 10 min walk to city centre along river. Friendly helpful staff in restaurant and pleasant housekeeping staff. Pool tiny, but didn't go there to swim. The only odd thing about this hotel is that the toilets are separate from the bathroom and there isn't even a hand basin in the toilet cubicle, which is really yuck....

The hotel its self is comfortable, nice pool, lovely walk into York along the river, good location, check-in long winded. Lovely city to visit. Its when you check out and don't get your £100 pre-authorisation on your credit card back even after 11 working days and numerous calls and even emails is unacceptable. Very disappointed with the after customer care,...

Having spoken to Emma yesterday, I trust this is completely resolved. Please let me know otherwise. Kind regards, Kai 01904 611 660

After spending £150 for a night I don't expect it to be just good. The carpet in our room was dirty with stains, there was a big hole in the cupboard. The air conditioner was very loud throughout the night. If you are a light sleeper like me prepared to be awake through the night. My husband and kid slept...

We stayed here on our recent visit to York as we were attending an event at The Barbican, it is perfectly situated for this and yet is merely a ten minute walk along the river to the centre of York. We had a lovely family room overlooking the river, it was immaculate and spacious, and so quiet, we all slept...

The facilities were clean and well maintained. Parking was easy and the hotel was in close proximity to York city centre. Breakfast exceeded expectations with a wide selection included. Would come back.

My wife and I visited with our Granddaughter again this year. Very friendly young staff made us feel welcome guests.

Dear mickandsueespana, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry and disappointed you did not enjoy your stay. We had given you the exact same room as your previous stay ( as you had requested) and the set-up would have been the same as before. Our pool is gets heavy usage during the schools holidays and there will be a...
