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...

Just returned from a nights stay with a group of girl friends for a 30th birthday. What a great hotel choice. We opted for a Family Room as there were 5 of us and we thought being together in 1 room would work well. The suite had been recently refurbished to a very high standard. It had 1 double, 1...

Normally stay on outskirts of city but decided to pay considerably more to be in the centre. On arrival were greeted and told our room was ready, helped in with our luggage and piles of gifts, as was in York for a special birthday. Thought our room very dated but very clean.
