Title says it all really. As a place to lay our heads after a busy time seeing York Holmwood House was adequate. Car parking was good and we could walk into see the sights.

My husband and I were originally supposed to stay in the Holgate Bridge Guesthouse next door which is owned by the same people. Due to a plumbing mishap, we had a complimentary upgrade to this hotel. We were put in the newly refurbished annexe and it was gorgeous. Beautifully decorated and the bathroom was gorgeous, though I don't necessarily understand...

Stayed here recently for a night with my mum. It is located about a 15min walk from the city walls and was a lovely stroll. We had the room on the top floor with amazing views over the city...but there was alot of stairs but totally worth it. The place is quite fraught and busy and reception was frequently unmanned....
