We have just returned from a two-night stay in the Kilima Hotel (while the races were on) and I was very pleasantly surprised!! Admittedly, the hotel is slightly old-fashioned, but this shouldn't put anyone off staying here. The staff are superb, especially Chris, nothing is too much trouble for them & all is done with a cheery smile! I liked having waitress service for breakfast and the food was lovely. I have read a few reviews which say the bathroom is tiny, yes it is small, but seriously, how big do you need a bathroom to be when you're just using it for the toilet and washing yourself???? Get a grip people!!! If I had to have a slight gripe, it would be the small double bed (but then again I am used to a super-king size!!!!) and the fact breakfast is only served until 9.30 (a bit of an early start if you've had a heavy evening)!!! Distance into town & to the races not bad at all, but after a full day standing at the races, it had to be a taxi back!!! All in all, will definitely stay here again when I come back to York.
