We stayed the weekend on a stag do in York. The first thing to note is that York is full of stag and hen do's. The twin room was comfortable, the shower is decent but there is no bath. The room has a strange bathroom door separation system so you can lock yourself in the toilet and somebody else can use the shower - which is a great idea, except that the shower and toilet are separated by frosted glass meaning that if you are in the shower you can see the outline of the person using the toilet and visa versa. Probably not too much of an issue for families or couples, but an issue with mates for sure!
I was unfortunately ill for the majority of the trip (not the hotels fault) and the bed was very comfortable given that I spent 20 hours a day in it. Also they have very good blackout curtains which was a real positive. However my real annoyance was that to buy a bottle of Fanta at the bar was £1.95. What a rip off!
The other oddity is that they only have one beer on tap in the bar and that is Staropramen.
I was not a fan of the breakfast, tiny horrible sausages and scrambled egg for a cooked meal. Hardly the hearty English breakfast I as expecting.
However all in all a decent hotel. The staff were friendly and we all enjoyed out stay.
