Having already decided on a trip to York over the Easter break, my boyfriend and I booked into this place for our first night having seen it on a TV programme, and we were not disappointed.
It's in a beautiful, peaceful location, within probably a minute's walk of Ripley Castle (which, by the way, the hotel provides you with free tickets for). The service is very good, the room we stayed in was a very reasonable size and was very comfortable (the bed and duvet were amazing!), and the breakfast was lovely.
Free wifi is also a plus.
The only thing I was slightly disappointed with, and it is a very small thing, was what I felt was a bit of a lack of attention to detail when it came to the in-room tea & coffee making facilities - there was both a teapot and a cafetiere as well as the kettle, which was fantastic, but they were only big enough to fit one cup's worth of water in each, so it wasn't possible to have the same drink together at the same time. Plus, there was only one biscuit, when there was obviously two of us staying in the room... It really was not an actual issue in itself (we didn't even eat the one biscuit that was there!), but I felt a bit more thought/consideration could have been put into it
That really is the only one tiny thing I could find any kind of issue with though - it was an extremely pleasant stay and we would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle
