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... More

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... More

My wife and I spent a few days there while exploring York. On the plus side the hotel is well priced and a short walk to town through the gardens.
