“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

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.

Room Tip: If you are likely to be disturbed by road noise, ask for a room at the back of the hotel. If you wa...

This was our first time staying at a Premier Inn and it was a good experience. The room was extremely clean and quite large. There is no on-site parking so you must go to a nearby Pay and Display where the cost is £8.50 for twenty-four hours. The proximity to city centre was good, about a ten minute walk to The Shambles. Breakfast was adequate and the staff did a good job keeping the trays full and hot. I would definitely recommend and would stay here again the next time we visit York.

Great price.
Great for a weekend break.
Going to York stay here very close to all the sites and the centre.
Parking could be an issue but they have a deal with NCP very close by.

We've just returned from a great 2 night stay at this hotel. We were originally put into room 218 and just after unpacking we discovered that the single bed had a broken leg. A quick visit to the reception saw a very nice lady come up to the room with a toolbox. I helped her turn the bed over which was then when we saw that the leg had had several poor attempts at a repair in the past so a room swap was offered and accepted. The room was spotless, as was the bed lined and towels. A half decent sized TV (for a hotel) was also better than I've encountered in the past.

The staff were extremely pleasant during our stay, the breakfast was the usual excellent Premier Inn quality, the bar served a lovely pint and was really comfortable.

We loved York and will return to this hotel again soon.

I would have given my first 5 star review but for the problem with the bed!

Room Tip: Check the single bed if you're put in room 218!

We have just returned from a weekend in York & stayed at the Blossom St South Inn, the staff (particularly the reception staff) made us most welcome, and the rooms were superb, we really did get a good nights sleep ( as per the ads) and location couldn't be better for visiting attractions in and around the city. We will definitely be returning again soon, and would recommend this to anyone

Room Tip: we stayed in 4 rooms on the 1st floor and all were extremely quiet and roomy

My first stay in a Premier Inn and it came as a bit of a shock after staying in 10 B&B's. The price £80 a night was twice the price of most B&B's - and no breakfast. Despite this the room was large, the bed comfortable and it was very handy to the railway station and a nice walk into the city. Reception (Lauren) was friendly but with only one staff member I'm not sure about the service overall. The hotel boasted 30 minutes of FREE wifi - but I've had UNLIMITED FREE wifi at 10 B&B's and 3 hotels prior to this stay. Had two meals in the restaurant - tasty lamb burger was good, t-bone steak was flavoursome once you got rid of all the gristle. I would have preferred a B&B but couldn't get one this stay so I'd recommend this place as long as you don't mind the price. It's convenient but a bit soulless.

Premier Inn offer a no frills, simple, you know what you're going to get, clean, efficient, everything laid on and hopefully for a budget. No free internet, but it's the middle of the city so the data on your phone will work fine. Restaurant is clean with good food (although there's a lot to offer in York).
