Having spent weeks and weekends at Jorvik while seeking my oew home in York, I could praise their kindness, the freshness of the breakfast, their terrific location, including a garden, and this subtle difference which lets you enjoy the do-nothin-get-served attitude of the basic tourist, but still being free enough to feel just like at home. Rooms are generally genrous...

We recently had our wedding reception here at the Jorvik and can not praise them highly enough. All the staff were friendly and helpful, but Sue and Rory in particular went out of their way to make sure our day was perfect. They offer a bespoke wedding service which means you can make the day just how you want it,...

Definitely a good deal for the price. It's a short walk from the train station (once you know the back route, otherwise takes about 20 mins with luggage). Great location right across the street from the entrance to St. Mary's Abbey and the museum gardens. About 5 min walk from the York Minster and the town center. Room was a...

Look ok from outside, but the rooms are tiny and dated. Whirlpool bath didn't work but the shower was ok, but I'd rather have a room looking nice with no stains on walls and basics like a hair dryer and wifi than a fancy shower. £180 with no breakfast in a room bettered by a travel lodge isn't good, no...

Second visit to The Yorvik Hotel. As before, a very comfortable stay. Staff were great as normal, especially the guy on reception. I think his name was Chris. Breakfast was lovely and kept us going until the afternoon. On this visit, I managed to go into the back garden. As it was sunny, it was really nice and peaceful there....

Overall a nice hotel, but some minor issues. 1. We originally started out in room 12a. Initially thought it was a lovely room, but at night there was a really loud buzzing noise, which prevented sleep. Thankfully the night porter was very helpful and moved us too room 19, accordingly the buzzing was the junction box?? 2. When we arrived...

We paid £151 for one night's B&B double room on a Saturday night. The room was quite small with tatty decor and not particularly clean - a cracked bath panel held together with sellotape, and balls of fluff and (what appeared to be) pubic hair behind the bathroom door to give examples. A loud, disconcerting howling noise from the plumbing...
