Reviewed 22 June 2014

Have stayed here before and have not been disappointed, staff lovely and friendly, breakfast yummy with really great coffee. We will keep coming back - as long as the parking arrangements are still available and that the extraction is sorted.

a lovely hotel with the character to be expected of a building this age which has not been destroyed by modernisation. A really lovely atmosphere and the staff were really considerate. View of York minster from my bedroom window - room 7

I stayed here for one night on business and wished it was for pleasure Erica was really helpful and very friendly. The building is lovely and so full of character it is steeped in history. The high ceilings and the many original features are a credit to the owners. Breakfast was great with very good service and I will gladly stay here again. Val R

I have mixed reviews about this Hotel. I can't falt the staff or the food. Both were great. Concidering the location (a stones through from the Minster) the price was very resonable too. we had a double room right at the top, Room 14 in the roof. Nice clean room, nice comfy bed (not much headroom over the bed). The bathroom was very small. You can't stand at the sink due to the toilet being in the way. To use the toilet its best to sit side saddle or open the shower door, to put your knees in. Shower unit was a bit naff' temp was very eratic. either too hot or too cold. Then the noise. Constant sound of running water. Filling up tanks I would imagine. Then the dreaded saniflo system kicks in. Lowd buzzing noises, not only from our room but from everyone elses rooms aswell. Plus the extractor fans run for about 10mins after the bathroom lights were switched off. Then due to walls being a tadd thin, the unfortunate noise of a lady in the room nextdoor vomiting at silly "o"clock in the morning. Then came the flush, then came the saniflo......All in all, a nice clean freindly hotel. But the rooms in the roof a bit of a let down. Especialy if you want to sleep.

Room Tip: Don't have a room in the roof. Can't comment on others.

I stayed in a single room for a weekend conference in York. The hotel is in a central location, and is a convenient walk to the main attractions.The room had a shower, which made it rather cramped, with the toilet just outside down a few stairs. The breakfast is good. At weekends, the start time for breakfast is not until 8.30am, but the hotel was able to arrange something earlier for me.

I booked online, and the price was reasonable for the location and facilities - as long as you accept that this is a small hotel in some period buildings.

I did not use the restaurant for dinner, but the menu looked interesting, and the prices reasonable.

I would be happy to return.

Visited the hotel on Easter Friday and Saturday. Hotel is very clean and the staff are nice and friendly, ideal location to see the sights. The restaurant is fantastic and would recommend it to anyone who stays at the hotel especially with the 15% discount, only had 2 minor problems with the hotel.

1. With it being the weekend and in centre of town the room was very noisy but I understand that it is a listed building and only so much can be done.
2. The bed I slept in had a slant so had to lie next to the wall so that I did not feel like I was going to slide out of bed.

Apart from the above minor problems had a great stay and found the hotel/restaurant to be great value for money, would recommend.
