“Perfect choice for the location and a great breakfast!”
Reviewed 26 September 2007

We stayed here for one night as were in York for a friend's wedding (Clifton Parish Church is a 5 minute walk down the road). We literally checked in, got changed, went out, came back late, had breakfast the following morning and left. So we didn't really have much time in the hotel, but the staff were all very friendly, the room was comfortable (nice bathroom), and the hotel also had its own off road parking.

The full english breakfast was very good, and served until 9:30am on Sundays which allowed us a good lay-in, especially as checkout wasn't until 11am!

I ranked this "excellent" as you couldn't really expect anything better for a 2 star hotel! Would definately stay here again if we wanted to stay in the same area.

This was our return visit having stayed here in summer 2006 as well. As a family of 5 it can be hard to find accomodation. We know that the Beechwood can provide us with a family room and an adjacent single so it works well. Only comment I would make on the downside is that the hotel is used for conferences etc which means brekfast is sometimes taken in the bar area instead of the dining room and parking can be a problem.

  • Liked — Good sized rooms and good service
  • Disliked — Difficulty in parking when hotel meetings etc.

Reviewed 27 September 2006

Having read a previous review I took a chance on what is billed as simply a 2 star hotel. But, I would have to give everyone involved in running this super place 4 stars. The staff were ultra-friendly from the moment I arrived to check-in, the room was small but clean and the toilet/shower room had been recently re-furbished (only issue here was you turned the sink mixer to cold for hot & vice versa - room 6, check it out!). I wanted to check the cinema listings and the admin staff logged in on their PC to let me see the program for the local multi-plex. There was a choice of eating arangements - supper in the bar or dinner in the restaurant. I chose the bar and huge portions of excellent food were served up. Nice real ale on tap as well. A regular guest in the bar described how a desperate party of Americans had turned up late at night unable to find rooms anywhere in York. The staff turned two rooms for 4 into rooms for 7 rather than turn them away. Highly commended

  • Liked — Staff, Cleanliness, Food & Drink, Value

This is a nice little hotel in an excellent location just outside York, but five minutes drive from a park and ride (bus), which is easily the best way to get into the city (parking in York is a bit of a nightmare). We paid £85 for 3 course dinner, bed and breakfast for two people (booked direct with the hotel), an absolute bargain. Food is traditionally English, and the whole place has an old fashioned unpretentious charm with extremely helpful staff. The rooms are pleasant rather than luxurious (it is, after all, a 2*) and we suggest trying to book room 4, which is at the front (although very quiet) with a large bay window giving extra space. All in all, an excellent base for visiting this beautiful city.
