Well....think premier inn / travelodge and then lower your expectations. My family stayed here this weekend on Friday and Saturday night, my mum and dad, myself and my partner and my brother and his wife who is pregnant. We stayed for the races (within walking distance for people who have no difficulty walking a mile). We were booked into the county stand but thats where the luxury finished. This hotel is full of large groups of men on stag dos and large groups of people. The clientel are loud and plyed with drink from the bar which is open until 2. The room was clean and the bed very comfirtable but the decor is like student accomadation...with peach doors and a poppy carpet and the carpet in our room was awful colour. The bathroom was very clean. We stayed for two days but dont expect the maid to leave another round of biscuits or tea/milk etc on the tray (even though you have paid for two nights). The bed was made for the second eve and the bathroom wiped over. I was impressed with service. On the first night the bath attachement broke and i couldnt turn the tap off. I recieved assisstance straight away from reception, they said they would report it for an engineer but no one came. Luckily it worked even though it was tempremental. We had a lovely day at the races, when we returned it was spoiled by someone in the bar near enough threatening my dad...because a group of men had returned and took my mums and my chair away without asking ( whilst we were at the toilet). My dad took our seats back but it was an uncomfortable atmosphere. The next evening a group of women were eating pizza and kebabs underneath the teli sat on the settees. However, The breakfast was fabulous...full cooked breakfast up until 10 then its continental only until 12. It was hot and tasted very good I would recommend it. Bacon,sausage, scrambled egg, toms,black pudding, cerials and continental selection, yoghurt etc. They really do do a good breakfast. Thats good beacuse dont expect much sleep if its tooo hot. We stayed in an attic type bedroom where it was so hot we had to have the window open which looks onto the busy main street into york. It was so noisey with sirens of the police and ambulances going up and down constantly. My sister in law could not sleep so they checked out and returned home for the second night, they couldnt stay in the hotel any longer. There is a good flat screen teli in the rooom. I had no mirrior over the dressing table but like said earlier...the bed was very comfortable and clean. We ate our evening meal at an italian over the road...it was fabulous but tinned mushrooms on the pizza. I has pasta and chicken it was really nice. There is a sainsbury across the road open until 12 and quite a few fish and chip shops.. I would recommend the 2nd one into town, there is also a KFC.
