Arrived for a long weekend. 2 adult 2 children - I child is now 16.The staff here are absolutely fabulous and could not fault them in any way.They are attentive and nothing is too much trouble.We were given room 233 .Well its just through a fire door near the stairs so be prepared to hear most of the other guests coming and going and the door closing.The room is too small for 3 adults it is really designed for 2 adults and a small child.The sofa bed folds out up to the side where you need to put all your stuff.Warning the sofa bed in here is naff - very thin mattress so you will feel all the slats below.The main bed is a bit lumpy too feels like its had its stuffing pounded out. Not being able to sleep I tried to get on the FREE WI-FI that is advertised everywhere however if there at a weekend when the hotel gets full wi-fi cant cope with all the connections so bye bye wi-fi.So rough night down to breakfast in the morning but again if the hotel is full be prepared to wait as the dining/doubles as bar in evening area gets very full .There is a limited selection continental and eggs ,sausage ,beans hash browns for hot.But plenty of cereal .Again the staff are very attentive ad polite.I have emailed the General Manager twice but never got a reply.The car park is small so get there early if you want to park.The Toby Carvery offers good wholesome food next door but after 3 days you may want to eat in the City as there is a large selection of very good eating places.A taxi into town is £9.00 (October 2013) and is better as parking in the city is expensive not mentioning the time it will take to drive in .If your walking its about 35 mins brisk walk.I would recommend you get a York Pass its cheaper for families and gets you into loads of places and lets you queue jump in some places.
