Stayed here for weekend in March 2013.
We had a room with 2 doubles- would personally rather a king size. We went with friends and they had king size- so maybe call in advace and discuss beds. The manager is very friendly and welcoming and could not do enough for you.
Pool was good for a little dip- dont expect to be doing laps. I'm a bit of a gym bunny so promise of a 'fitness suite' was appealing, but a bit disappointing. A couple of old school cardio machines and some (light) dumbells in a very small, poorly ventilated room- wouldnt have liked to get a sweat up in there! But then who needs a gym when you can enjoy a lovely walk or jog in to York and down the river!
Big disapointment was breakfast. Only served until 9.30am on a Sunday! This inevitably means that everyone goes down at 9.15 and the waitresses just can't cope- which is a real pain as you cant help yourself, have to order everything through waitresses. Waited ages for coffee (cold) and toast (even more cold), and portions were on the reserved side. I might have asked for more but then I would probably have been waiting until lunch time to get it.
