Visited 1st December 16 for one night, but although the trip was planned this wasn't where we supposed to be staying. The original hotel we booked a few weeks ago phoned on 30 November to advise no heating and hot water and gave choice of full refund with no penalty charge, half price or a free breakfast (as was room...

Spent 2 nights at the Holmwood hotel, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the annex at the rear. Room was fine with a large TV. The breakfast was very nice. Well located 10/15 minutes from the city, would stay there again. Would recommend to anyone.

A one night stay with friends. Very warm welcome even though checked in early. Lot of stairs to climb but worth it for view over city towards the minster from our room.

This was my sixth stay at Holmwood House and it never disappoints. I won't stay anywhere else in York. The owners and their staff are so friendly and accommodating. Modern yet traditional interiors, spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit York for business or pleasure. My mum and I really...

Lovely couple of days away at the Holmwood House. Friendly staff, arrived early and rooms were ready. Good breakfast. Only downside for some would be lots of stairs (we were on top floor, not a problem for us but some might have difficulties) & the walk to town. Overall great stay! Thanks!

Our room was spacious and clean. Bathroom was clean, bright and modern. Breakfast was great and the staff were welcoming and helpful. Short walk to the minster, shambles and museum. What else could you ask for?
