Excellent position across from York minster and in walking distance of all the main sights of York. Our room at the back was quiet and a good size, though very warm. Staff very helpful. Breakfast good, again pleasant, helpful staff.

We stayed here for a joint celebration of my 60th birthday and our anniversary, between the 7th and 10th of March and it was a fabulous choice made by my wife. The hotel is located directly opposite the Minster (don't worry, the bells don't chime all night) and has valet parking available for a nightly charge. We were greeted very...

First, of course, the location can't be improved on. An easy 10-minute walk from the York rail station, and directly across from York Minster. You can walk almost anywhere from here, including the National Railway Museum. There are also car-rental offices near the rail station. The staff is extraordinarily friendly, and helped carrying/navigating our luggage both coming and going. We...

Dear Thomasbaker, Thank you for such a wonderful review, I am so pleased that you loved our location,my team and your recently refurbished bedroom overlooking York Minster.Wish you had tried our food as it is very good and varied.

I stayed here midweek needing a quiet room to work on an assignment. It really is an excellent hotel. It is right in the heart of York's central area and some rooms look out over the Minster. Within a few steps you are in the the heart of the Medieval city with its bustling pedestrianised area and abundance of cafés...

We stayed here seven years ago and we have to say the hotel is still as nice as we remembered. All of the staff are friendly and helpful and the room was excellent and well appointed.

As I write this I am looking out my window at the front facade of York Minster. I can't imagine a more perfect location (don't worry, the bells don't ring after 8pm).

Our room was spacious with everything you would expect and even an umbrella in the wardrobe. The view was across the back gardens behind the hotel rather than the Minster across the road but the upside of that was that it was very quiet. The meal in the restaurant was excellent despite us being at the end of the serving...

I am elderly and lame. We walked easily from the trainstation to the hotel, which is directly opposite the Minster, in about fifteen minutes. Staff were welcoming and solicitous, though those in the bar were inexpert [ it was early in the season]. Food is very good indeed but be aware that for a cooked breakfast the items listed are...
