We decided to have a weekend in York to celebrate my 40th Birthday with my fiancé & our two young children. The hotel was a little by further away from town than I had expected but an OK walk. The room we had was too small as it had a double bed & a double sofa that was made out to two singles side by side, this meant we had very little room to walk around or in between the beds so the kids had to spend most of the time sat on their beds! Also the blankets on the pull out beds looked old and well used. There is no hanging space for jackets etc... And no radiators which proved difficult after we had been out around town last Friday and got very wet and cold! We phoned reception and they quickly sent a small room heater up to us, this meant we had even less floor space and had to keep the kids away as it was a danger as hot! The toilet was separate to the bathroom which seemed like a good idea at first but meant going from one to the other to wash hands which was a pain especially if I was showering and my son needed to wash he's hands! We couldn't seem to get the large overhead shower to work in the hotel bathroom or in the pool area??The food in the restaurant for dinner was nice but the children's food a bit basic and quite expensive overall as nearly the same price as eating in one of the towns very nice seafood restaurants!! The breakfast was hot one day but cold the next but the variety was good and tasty when hot. We had one trip to the swimming pool as it was quite cold in the water and one shower and two small changing rooms seemed a little insufficient. It also lacks privacy as the pool is visible from the bar, reception and restaurant! Don't think we would visit again as the room size meant we couldn't relax and small details missing!
