Just returned from a two night break in York staying at Hedley House hotel. Had a really great weekend and the hotel certainly didn't let us down.
We arrived on Friday afternoon after finding the hotel easily and were shown to the car park area. We found it easy to park and didn't need to move the car all weekend. This is definitely a plus as parking is scarce, and expensve in York.
We were shown to our room by a very pleasant lady and although the room wasn't quite ready it only took a few minutes to resolve. The room itself was lovely. Big fireplace and huge bed (turned out to be two singles but wasn't at all uncomfortable) and a spare bed next to the window. Room was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom with good power shower.
Our room was on a high floor and with no lift I wouldn't recommend for anyone with mobility problems. It didn't bother us but just be warned that the stairs are quite steep if you might have a problem with this.
Our room was at the front of the hotel overlooking the railway line. I thought this would be really noisy but we weren't bothered by the trains. The only time it was noisy was on the early hours of Sunday morning with a few drunken revellers returning to a near by hotel who probably thought they were 'whispering'.
We had breakfast at the hotel both mornings and it was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was great considering how busy the restaurant was. We also ate at the hotel on the Friday night and this again was delicious with losts of choice and the service was good and very friendly. Having eaten in York on the Saturday night and being dissapointed we wished we had eaten in the hotel again that night. I know there are plenty of restaurants to choose from in York but think it would be hard to beat the meal we had on Friday in the hotel. Compliments to the chef.
York itself is only a short stroll away and the road is well lit so we felt very safe even coming back at night.
We got a really good deal for the hotel and would definitely return if could get a similar deal. Not sure that we would pay the full price though as a bit steep for somewhere with no leisure facilities.
All in all though I would definitely recommend this hotel and will keep an eye out for a good deal so we can return to York.
