The previous reviews cover pretty much everything, very friendly, accommodating staff; excellent food and a welcoming bar area with log fire. The Sidings is well located, only about two miles distance from the “Park and Ride” service which provides easy, direct access to the National Railway Museum and York city centre. Being in former Pullman railway carriages the rooms were... More

My husband and I visited on a Groupon for one night. We had a lovely time but I find it very difficult to give a rating as some things were good and some let it down. First the room. I believe they have refurbished some rooms but we were in room 7 which definitely needs refurbishing - the avocado shower... More

My partner and I visited this hotel for a two day trip as it was a good deal and quirky. Upon arrival all looked fine and very different, the venue is not too far out in the middle of no where but being right next to the train light somewhat loud at times. The bar was nice, the reception area... More

We stayed here last night as part of a Groupon offer. £69 for dinner bed and continental breakfast. We really had a nice evening here, our room was newly refurbished and was cosy and warm. The trains shooting past didn't bother us and added to the atmosphere. We dined in one of the train carriages and it was very romantic.... More

This is an brilliant venture. A great location and an excellent change from the normal style of hotel. Beautifully converted railway carriages into well-appointed rooms made our stay all the better. Although it's situated beside the East Coast Mainline, the frequent trains only concern you for a short time and soon you don't even realise they are passing just 50... More

Great very unique stay. The owner and staff are very helpful and friendly. The evening meal was superb quality. The lounge area is great if you want to sit by the open fire and have a drink from the bar. Would very highly recommend the sidings.

I have given this hotel 'very good' rating. They are about to refurbish the bathrooms, which will then get an excellent rating. We couldn't fault the service, food and the management and staff they were all so good and friendly.

I purchased a Groupon voucher to stay at this hotel as a surprise for my husband. it was something different for us to experience. We arrived early and checked into our train carriage for the night. The interior of the carriage was clean however a bit of TLC would be advantageous to our room.(number 3) They have on going progress... More
