The hotel incorporates several buildings into one, which makes it quirky and atmospheric although access to some areas may be tricky for people with mobility problems. I have stayed in 7 different York hotels over the past few years and this is my favourite because of its plush but unstuffy atmosphere and its unbeatable location right in the centre of town. In spite of this I have not found it noisy at night (other than the minster early-evening bell-ringing practice, which is actually rather nice!) On both of my two stays so far I have been upgraded from my booked single room into a small double, which is a good size for one person but would be small for two people for more than a night or two. The staff on the whole are professional and approachable and some are extremely personable. My only grouse this time was that I asked for the same items from the bistro menu on two consecutive nights, only to be told that they were not available. I heard another lady ordering something else, which was also not available. Otherwise I was totally happy and will definitely stay again when next in York.
