Had I written this review after my night in "room 35" it would be full of, deleted, expletives. I knew we were in the annex but nobody told me that we were in the attic; up 35 steps with two suitcases! The room had the hardest bed we have ever, not, slept on; blinds that couldn't exclude the light of a firefly let alone the sun and a funny smell. So far so bad...
...we complained, politely, and were moved to a nice courtyard room with a softer bed and curtains that worked. Helpfully, the staff moved our cases while we were out enjoying York. After that, all is bliss. The hotel has plenty of parking spaces and is only a 15 minute walk from York Minster. Regular buses run to and from the city center - but only till 20:00. The hotel is a bit worn and threadbare but breakfast is good and the location is excellent.
Despite meeting lots of friendly and helpful citizens, enjoying the attractions and history we didn't like York; too busy and frenetic after a week in the Dales. We suggest visiting at a quieter time of year.
