This hotel is in an excellent location for access to the railway station and shopping in the centre of York. The staff were welcoming, the room was clean and comfortable and we had a good view of the Minster. It's also good value for money. No niggles.. nothing to complain about at all. Would definitely recommend and will stay again.

Not visited the 'judges' for a while so was pleased to see the changes made to bar and upstairs restaurant areas! Despite being a busy Saturday the restaurant was full but still relaxed. Service was excellent from start to finish. Overall the meals were excellent with special mention of the 'coddled egg , black pudding and chorizo' starter, fish pie...

We had an early office Christmas party at the end of November. We were allocated a private room as there were 20 of us. The food was very tasty and the portions were generous. I had the salmon followed by Turkey which was better than the average you get around this time of year. This was followed by cheese and...

Visited during a trip to York, we ordered a starter of the terrine and my partner the soup. Both were pleasant, but nothing special. As one member of staff took our starters dishes away another was serving our mains , far too rushed we would have preferred a gap between courses. Both plates arrived hotter than the food that was...

booked in the restaurant on a busy Saturday in York, the staff were very nice but the food was very disappointing. I had Goan Curry, the chicken was very dry and there was no sauce with it, I like a nice spicy curry, the only spice in this was a sliced chilli. My partner had fish and chips which was...

This is a lovely hotel on the doorstep of beautiful York. Staff we friendly and very welcoming. We arrived early for check so dropped our bags, but when we returned our bags had been taken to our lovely attic room with full view of York Minster. Fresh milk for teas and coffee was a treat along with scrumpy biscuits each...
