We booked this hotel last minute, it's location in York is perfect, a short walk into the centre, a short, clear walk from the train station so easy to find with the surrounding location being picturesque. The staff were very friendly and welcoming with the hotel its-self being very modern, well looked after and clean. All round great stay.

Hotel had a great reception and we were warmly welcomed. Room was little small but for the price we paid it was still acceptable. I think that the location was great for business as it was a 5 minute walk from city centre.

Arrived at the hotel. Receptionist wasn't very helpful. Didn't offer to carry our bags to our upstairs room. On checking our room for a hairdryer my wife found a racy bra and crotchless knicker set with a length of rope in a drawer. This proves the room wasn't properly cleaned. We told the Receptionist who just seemed to laugh it...

Across from St. Olave's Chapel and St. Mary's gardens, this hotel is in a great position for exploring York. Clean, and being upgraded, I highly recommend the Jorvik. Public parking is around the corner, as there is no parking available on the street. We stayed for two nights and parking was 20 pounds. We did not take advantage of the...

We stayed here in late December last year. We arrived before check in time so a member of staff put our bags somewhere safe for our return. He explained about the gardens opposite closing at certain time and how we would have to walk around. Very helpful. The bedroom itself was clean and spacious. The only problem I had was...

I stayed here early January 2017 and the hotel was very quiet. We waited in reception a while before anybody noticed we were there and no sign telling us that it was reception so perhaps this could be a useful tip. The hotel room was very clean and the bed was huge and very comfortable. The lady who showed us...

Good location but the evening reception chap was dismissive, unfriendly and didn't give us any information about our stay. The room was cold and wasn't cleaned during our stay. The bar was a fridge in reception. Overall, poor but the price was reasonable and it was near to town

The Jorvik Hotel is centrally placed opposite the beautiful museum gardens. It has friendly helpful staff and is working hard to improve. It was clean, comfortable and excellent value for money. We would definitely use it for future visits.
