I am writing this review months after my wife and I stayed there. My only comments are that our experience mirrors that of the other 2 guests in April 2010. The location was about the only good thing, as it is within walking distance of the centre of York. The guest house itself was very dissapointing. Our room had not been cleaned from the previous guests, the bins were full, cigarette ends in the fire place, dust and cobwebs everywhere, but the worst thing was the dirty tissue we found in our bed on the first night. The breakfast was appaling, the quality and presentation were from somebody that just did not care, and the food was unappetising. Then there was the parking, I was told by the manager that i could park on the exit round the back of the house, and as a result i received a rude letter from a disgruntled neighbour, who then dented and scratched my car which was under 1 year old. After 3 nights stay we were ready to go home. We wrote to the manager and never received a reply. My advise would be that if this was the last available hotel in York, and you really want to go, book into the nearest town instead and make day trips!
