Having just returned from a three night stay, I was very happy. While I've stayed at Premier Inns before, this was my first visit to York. We were met by a friendly and efficient receptionist who had us checked in and on our way to our room in a matter of minutes. The room was everything I've come to expect - clean, comfortable and well equipped.
We had lunch on our first day, as well as our evening meals each evening, at the Table Table restaurant, attached to the hotel. The staff here were just as friendly and helpful though we did find that when they were busy, the speed of service suffered a little. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful, as is normal for this hotel chain. I would recommend booking ahead if you are using the restaurant in the evening as it filled up very quickly. The food was wonderful and the menu catered for a variety of tastes.
On our last night, the fire alarm sounded part way though dinner service and I have to commend the staff of the restaurant who ensured that a very full restaurant was evacuated calmly and quickly while the problem was sorted out. We were all back at our tables a few minutes later and able to carry on with our meals.
The hotel is perfectly placed for visitors arriving by train. There is no car parking available at the hotel but there is an arrangement with a nearby pay and display and this is bookable in advance. It is just a short walk into town from the hotel and there are regular buses available if needed.
There is a little road noise if at the front of the hotel, though this didn't disturb our sleep.
A pleasurable stay which we hope to repeat in the future.
