We stayed at this hotel for three nights to celebrate our Silver Wedding anniversary. We arrived at the hotel and after checking in we had our car valet parked and this was the last time we saw the car until we departed home. Our luggage was taken to our room and our enjoyment began. All the staff were absolutely excellent, very friendly, efficient, and helpful to a fault. We enjoyed our meals in the bistro, and our evening meal in the D.C.H. restaurant was splendid and the breakfasts a delight to start the day with. The location of the hotel must be the finest in York being as central as it can get and right next door to the Minster and the peeling of the bells. Being so central there is street noise partic. at night but this did not bother us at all. I am a wheelchair user and would like to make a few points partic. to people who may have read a previous review that was slightly critical. I use my wheelchair permanently so feel I am able to comment more accurately on accessibility than someone who could walk up the steps and leave their wheelchair in reception. I could navigate the entire hotel i.e. bar, bistro, restaurant, corridors, etc without any problem whatsoever, in fact access was excellent inside the hotel. We also had room no.20 which was excellent for a wheelchair with a well equipped wet room with a bath as well. The lift was directly outside our room and I can assure the reader that all doors are easily manouvered even with my power chair. To be fair having to use the ramp at the side entrance was not perfect but the staff were excellent and assistance immediately on hand so even this was ok.Needless to say we enoyed York, and we enjoyed this hotel. Full marks to the staff for making our break all the more enjoyable and can find little fault at all. Thank you.
