Reviewed 26 July 2009

Booked this hotel with some trepidation after reading some negative reviews. However, our experience was good. The room was, as advertised, small but had a good-sized double bed and separate bathroom. It was clean and well presented, with welcoming free mini-bar. The cooked breakfast was superb and cooked to order. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The hotel was well located, within a ten minute walk of the city wall. For a longer stay, book one of the larger rooms.

The hotel is in a great location, only 10 mins walk to the city walls. The room looked nice, it was well decorated and spacious but the bathroom suite could do with updating. The room had all the things you would expect in a hotel plus a few extras, although the bed was slightly small for my 6ft 2 boyfriend. The hotel staff were friendly and the older staff had good knowledge of the area and things to do. Breakfast was good and we didn`t have to wait long for it to arrive.
The bad points, far too noisy, i didn`t get one good night sleep from our 3 night stay. The hotel is on the main road and our room was at the front so it was noisy all day and night. Our room was also located above the bar area and we could hear music most the night, as well as the tv & general noise from the guests upstairs. Not very good if you are a light sleeper!
This is a nice hotel in a good location but too noisy for us. Would we go back? Not sure, but if we did i would make sure we had a room at the back of the hotel.

This hotel is a boutique hotel but is too pokey in my opinion, and too dark and dingy. Our actual room was very nice indeed, I just didn't like the common areas.

The breakfast area was scruffy and the staff didn't have a great appearance but they were helpful and friendly enough. At breakfast some of the waitress' friends seemed to come in, or perhaps it was some other colleagues on a day off or someone related to the management but I thought it was rather inappropriate when they plonked themselves down and started chatting with the waitresses.

I would say it's overpriced for what it is, and it needs a refurb in the common areas to make it more light and airey.

Oh and whilst free parking is advertised I think this is a lie really - there's room for about 5 cars in the car park and it was full when we got there - probably the staff's cars! We had to park on a street nearby and walk back.

Great location - just a ten minute walk to the city walls. Modern public areas. The hotel is undergoing refurbishment and we were in an unrefurbished room which was rather shabby but with contemporary touches - TV, digitl radio, ipod docking station etc. The cooked breakfast was excellent using good quality local ingredients. The non cooked options were rather limited. The staff were very helpful.

Hotel was fantastic and staff were polite and very helpful. We booked the superior double (room 101) and weren't disappointed. Lovely and roomy and loads of lovely extras in the room which were complimentary mini bar, sony lcd tv, iron and ironing boards, shower with jets, hairdryer, safe and even a morning newspaper.
Breakfast was lovely and service was exceptional. Decor in hotel was modern and up to date. The hotel is about a 10 minute wlak to minster so in a more sophisticated end of York rather than the noisy area of Micklegate.
Will definitely be returning to this hotel in the future.

My partner and i stayed here for a weekend getaway in York-it was perfect! The staff were helpful, we had a lovely spacious room and enjoyed all the special touches such as free minibar and i pod player. The bathroom was very dated but it didn't affect our stay. The included breakfast is a great way to start your day-there is lots of choice and served with a smile. The lounge area is very funky and again a nice place to be.

Booked this hotel on a whim as we were going to York for the day and decided to stop over the hotel was extremely pleasant, large, airy and with some wonderful extras the wifi and the ipod docking station were a definite plus, our room had a modern 4 poster which was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very fresh and tasty. For the money it was great value and we would definitely go back
