Stayed over festive period, and can definitely recommend this hotel. The location is excellent for both York itself, and access to the surrounding countryside and coastal resorts. Scarborough is less than an hour's drive (at this time of year). The Hotel's breakfast is ample and of a good standard, the hot food (sausage, egg and baked beans), being regularly replenished. Cereals, croissants, juices, and a multi hot drinks machine, and toasters which actually brown the bread..all very good. If you want, you have trays and the hotel doesn't mind if you take your breakfast to your room. No evening meals, but there is a very good Toby Carvery (shared car park), next door...Staff both at the hotel and the carvery are excellent and couldn't be more helpful and friendly. The hotel also provides details in a folder, of local takeaway delivery services in a folder if you prefer this option, and perfect if you are on a budget or don't fancy going out..
Rooms of a high standard, as expected by this chain, with flat screen TV's, multi channels. Sky Sports available in the breakfast room/bar area. Over the Xmas period, the rooms not cleaned Christmas day as expected, but additional towels left, and always a supply of additional drinks from the breakfast bar area.
Getting into York city centre, I would recommend the local Monks Cross Park and Ride Service, about a 3 minuite drive away and currently costs £2.30 Return (going up to £2.40 soon) and run every 10 minuites. Much better than the hassle and expense of city centre car parking. Also nearby is the Monks Cross Shopping Centre, with all the major retail outlets and Asda and Sainsbury's too.
