Stayed here last night and from the concierge parking to settling in the room was perfect. Found the room a little tired for the £199 it cost it could do with a little updating and the white gloss was peeling in several places.
Having said that the bathroom and toilet were exceptional with underfloor heating a nice touch. Also very quiet which I really like -no need.
Everything else was first class and a special mention for Grill Room, both dinner and bf were excellent, in fact my wife said it was the best steak she had had in years.
Like a previous contributor we walked around York looking for somewhere for dinner and found them mostly underwhelming and touristy so we returned to the hotel for dinner and glad we did.
Check out and car return were very smooth and the young lady receptionist on at 10.30 ish on 10th May deserves a mention, dealt with problems decisively and pleasantly, an asset.
Concierge service also warrants a mention, first class at all times.
Had it not been for the tired decor as the room was potentially outstanding, it would have got a five and £199 was a reduced price!
Would definitely stay again.
