I booked this hotel to spend some time with my 11 year old daughter before she went back to school after the Christmas holiday. I had no idea how beautiful it was when I booked it but when we got there and a realised exactly where it was and how beautiful it was we were amazed.
The room didn't disappoint either - we had room 10 a twin room with jacuzzi which was lovely.
I had read somewhere about occasional noise from the bars etc but to be honest apart from the occasional bottle smashing into a bin and a very low hum of traffic it was not a problem at all and much better than I would have expected from a very centrally located hotel.
The breakfast was fabulous and truly set up you up for the day - we didn't eat until the evening meal then - and all served in a lovely ambient dining room with classical music playing in the background. The staff were always delighted to see you and were very friendly and happy.
It was a lovely experience to share with my daughter and my husband was very disappointed to miss out but I am sure we will be making a visit there again - and this time we might even take him along !!!
It is a hidden gem that doesn't seem to be available on many of the normal hotel booking sites so I am not sure where their clientele come from - probably York tourist board but it really needs to shout a little louder about the lovely experience ti can offer you!
