Have to be honest. It was a last minute booking and our options were looking a bit thin on the ground. York is famously expensive but it's a beautiful city and we figured we wouldnt be spending much time at the hotel.
When we arrived early, we asked if our bags could be left in the room for when we checked in. Imagine our surprise when 5 or 6 hours later, they werent.
Although the front of house is neatly decorated in black and white kitsch, 50s Americana and monochrome, the theme permeates the rest of the hotel but doesnt live upto the promise. Our room was somewhat poky and cramped. The bed was noisey and the location of the room felt unsafe, on the ground floor on a far flung corner of the hotel with no one else around. There were times it felt like a glorified Hostel. Needless to say there were numerous attempts to distance intself from hostel fare such as a restaurant and ensuite bathrooms. Other than that there is nothing to justify the price, inspite of the York being famously expensive precendent.
Customer service was decidedly average. Youd have had to beg some of the staff to smile that weekend.
In short, should i visit york again anytime soon, i'll look for something else.
