A year and a month after our previous stay, I stayed here again for a business trip to the University of York. I'm pleased to report that the hotel hasn't changed much.
The check-in was friendly and efficient, and I was even recognised from my previous visit! Now that's a welcome and a half.
Whereas last time I stayed in a room that was just about to be refurbished, this one (245) had clearly benefitted from a recent refurbishment. Modern decor and a spotlessly clean bathroom.
Breakfast was, as before, a buffet with a decent selection of hot and cold items and it did the job admirably. The Toby Carvery next door still does a £4 cooked breakfast if you don't get on with the hotel's (free) offering.
My previous review from Jan 2013 goes into a bit more detail but it's still a great example of a Holiday Inn Express with really friendly staff. Recommended.
