My wife and I stayed in "terrific" York for the weekend just gone!.....What a great place to visit, not enough time to do all we wanted too as the weather was so great we somehow just found all the pubs and great restaurants were more to our taste this weekend!!!!......As for the Hotel, the room we stayed in was quite dated, needed updating and for the price we paid I feel it could be a bit more "Upmarket?"....Most reviews say its a 10-15 minute walk to city, however we found that was only to the city wall at Micklegate, to get to the centre add another 5-10 minutes!!.....And in the heat we experienced not a problem getting there but did need a taxi back each night!!! As most reviews have said the reception was hardly ever manned, but when we wanted something it was only seconds waiting for assisstance!!!......The Staff we encountered were all really friendly, cannot fault the "English Breakfast", always piping hot, and plenty of it, along with whatever else you required, 1st class nosh!!!.....We ventured to the pool only once over the weekend and found this to be very clean, well maintained and a nice refreshing way to cool off after walking back late afternoon!! All said and done a nice little hotel, if expectations are not too high, very clean, and added benefit of free parking!!!!! we were also allowed to leave our car in the carpark after checking out, so we could enjoy a full day back in York, without the hassle of parking charges in York, which Im told are quite expensive.
