This hotel is not in the centre of York which makes it a bit cheaper than the equivalent in the city centre. We chose to stay here as we got a really good offer via travel zoo, took the car as has on site parking, rather than getting the train. There is a frequent bus service over the road which takes you into the city in approx 10mins, however we also found that there was quite a pleasant walk through the park next to the river which got us back from the city in about 40mins.
Our standard room was small but clean and comfortable - only real complaint was that it was ridiculously hot and took a while to get the heating off and the room cooled down, even with no heating the room was still a bit hot and stuffy for sleeping.
We ate in the restaurant - 3 course evening meal which was lovely - good quality food, although a restricted menu. We also sampled afternoon tea - which was really nice, but a bit too sweet even for someone like me with a sweet tooth, as this consists of a lot of cake - would also prefer to see something offered other than tea and coffee with this as Im a non tea and coffee drinker. Breakfast was also good - lots of choice. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
Only issue was a random knock in middle of night with room service we hadn't ordered, who then started to come in after knocking twice - this was not nice at time, and had I been alone it may have been a bit frightening as we were unaware of it being room service - the member of staff was very apologetic though.
Overall a pleasant stay and we would stay again. Look out for travelzoo offers as if they do repeat this, it makes it quite a bargain.
