To contextualise, I booked the cheapest single room in York at this place. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there wasn't anything wrong with the room. As expected it was small. A few things could have dramatically improved the experience for me however for minimal effort on the part of the hotel.
> No plug socket to plug kettle into was evident meaning had to reach down behind the TV and fiddle with wires.
> The shower didn't make much water, little more than a trickle.
> There is some noise in the room I stayed in, especially at the weekend, as there are lots of drunk people in the street until the early hours. I must say though that I thoroughly expected this given that this is an otherwise fantastic city centre location near the good stuff in the middle of York.
Before staying I specifically asked the hotel whether the breakfast was large. I was assured that it was. I would call it normal sized. I am a big eater. This was my biggest let down by far.
All in all though I thoroughly recommend. Location fantastic, staff very nice, rooms and food not bad at all f9or the money.
