Irene Cossins hoped I'd give YP a 5 when I next visited. This was a response to my last review. Well Irene, you've got your five. This was our fifth, I think, time at YP. Arrived 16 February for 3 nights. Ground floor room -- 20 -- so some noise from upstairs, mostly creaky boards. Worth bearing in mind, but...

Have to admit when I booked I thought I would be getting a cookie cutter chain hotel. Now I've not got a problem with a formula hotel however I was very pleased to find out the York Pavilion is a lovely character hotel, run by humans. It's quirky & charming with lots of touches. Ok maybe a bit tired in...

I've always wanted to go to York and this was a really nice place to stay for my visit. The location was excellent, within easy walking distance of York and the university if you need to go there. Friendly staff who were welcoming and helpful. My room was comfortable, attractive and spotlessly clean. Breakfast good but a bit confusing, if...

I organised a birthday party for my wife. From the very first meeting with the Events manager, in the charming hotel resident's lounge, through to the party itself, everything was well above my expectations. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful, above and beyond the call. Mark who manage the intimate panelled dinning room, coped with everything, including my...

Booked this hotel for a weekend stay as we wanted to be convenient to York but with the ability to visit a couple of the other market towns in the area. On arrival early Fri evening, the hotel looked attractive - like a small 'country house' - with the ivy covered walls. We managed to find one of the last...

Room excellent, bed very comfortable. Was clean, good temperature. Tea, coffee and biscuits all to hand. Free parking and bus right outside into the centre of town. We had dinner both nights and it was absolutely faultless. Breakfast excellent, good service and plenty of choice. Reception very helpful.

Our first visit to York and although not in the center it is not too far away for waliking and there is a fairly regular bus service too which saves hunting for parking. Breakfast was very good and service excellent. We did not have any other meals. Room facilities were good.
