If you are looking for a hotel near to York with easy access across the county this is it, just off the A64 and next to the Toby inn. This will have been our fifth visit, the staff alre always pleasant and helpful. The rooms are clean and what you would expect from a holidayinn express in the UK. The addition of a bar area is a plus for those that fancy a night cap and don't want to go into the Toby which gets very busy at times and seating is at a premium. Would we stay again - yes.
