This is probably the worst hotel I have stayed in in years! The hotel sits at the edge of town amongst fast food outlets, ramshakle shops and a fairly run down area! If you must stay in this area stay at the premier travel lodge it at least looks a nice hotel! On arrival the receptionist asked what was up with our miserable faces (we were down for a funeral). When we got to the lifts we noticed what looked like a dead body rolled up under the carpet, it was a wave of bumps and lumps, then things got worse, now I know this is a budget hotel so is travelodge so is premier travel inn, its has to be said this place was not a mark on those benchmarks. The room was tiny it had yellowed pillow cases, the carpet was stained with various unimaginable marks and the tv was a shower of snow - it was minging! So it was not a great start! We went out (York old town is nice) our son stayed in, he went down and ordered a pizza, it was an interesting ball of dough, he even kept it to show us - in fact it stayed with us a few more days! It was almost like a puppy! It had 4 dough legs and big puppy olive eyes (the cleaners must have thought we liked it so much we got to keep it )! Anyway next day getting dressed up for the funeral I managed to bang both sides of my head on both sides on the sharply inclined stucattod wall, this room was really small! My wife was raking around for a hair dryer guess what - no hair dryer, no shower matt - you get them from reception, must be highly desireable items to take home by the guests! Like the bathrobes and slippers (no just kidding - none in the room). So the next shocker is how thin the walls are and we would like to publicly thank the couple who attempted to destroy their bed through the night. bang bang bang! So we were leaving - at last! So standing outside beside a pool of sick waiting on my wife she came out to say they had no record of our booking - eventually we got away! Pheeww! So my advice add a few more pounds and stay at the premier travel lodge if you are doing a budget booking - it looks fine, York old town is lovely as well. I didnt know the Munsters were from York! p.s. we have kept the pizza puppy, its called Rolf, remember people pizza puppies are for life not just for Ibis hotels!
