Pleasant and friendly greeting on arrival. Stayed in a courtyard room which was spacious and homely. Complimentary drinks tray lovely and 'home made' biscuits on day 1 and 3 were lovely. Grapes in room also great. Meal in restaurant nicely served and nothing too much trouble. Historical building and well-kept grounds were lovely to walk around and enjoy. Taxi called by reception porters and hotel on bus route into York which was very efficient and convenient. A very relaxing stay which we thoroughly enjoyed.
