Yes this is a great hotel. The situation in the centre of York is perfect for the visitor, a short stroll to anything. The food both breakfast and, where we ate for two nights, in the Bistro was excellent, particularly the latter. All was good on the first night as the hotel dining seemed quiet, however, on the second night, when busy, we felt that the staff were quite pressed. We waited just under 40 minutes for our first course, the first glass of wine went back as it was warm and the second, after a considerable wait, was not much better. Breakfast the next day showed similar pressure, I had to ask for our coffee and tea again after waiting 10 minutes and it appeared quickly. Sounds very picky but if it has 4 stars this should not happen. The room was very comfortable, it just had a hidden cupboard in the wall that was used for hotel storage and which kept popping open. Bathroom was large and well equipped. Staff were very friendly and helpful but, as a fellow guest commented, it seemed as if there was a bit of a "manana" attitude.
I would certainly stay there again as it was elegant and nothing like chain hotels, heaven bless it, but it needs to up its game a bit if it is to retain the 4 stars. Food was, I repeat, excellent.
