5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

Excellent place to stay. We were greeted by Dave Perry on arrival, who we found to be to be very polite and very helpfull as were the rest of the staff. Will go back again in the near future and would highly recomend this hotel to anybody.

Although we had booked two nights we were bumped from our flight so only had one night. David Perry checked us in and very graciously upgraded us to the Prince of Wales Suite to make up for our lost day. The room was spectacular! The service in the hotel was excellent all around and besides our beautiful room with a large and comfortable bed, excellent bathroom and beautiful living room area we also enjoyed relaxing with a glass of wine in the beautiful garden at the front of the hotel. If you are a smoker there is a unique little covered area called Churchill's Bunker with comfortable seating and automatic lighting across the drive from the front doors of the hotel. It was a perfect beginning to our holiday and we will definitely return for a longer stay! Location was easy walking distance to everything yet away from noise and crowds. Thank you to the excellent staff, particularly David, who gave us all kinds of great information in hopes that we would love York as much as he does. We definitely fell in love with the place and the people.

Room Tip: The Prince of Wales Suite is absolutely amazing! Directly over the bar/restaurant at the front of t...

Went here for a romantic weekend away. The Churchill was a good place to stay. Our room was modern and had a nice view of the gardens. Some interesting art in the rooms. We ate at the restaurant downstairs. Food was tasty though the atmosphere a little dull as there were few other diners. There was a wedding party that night, but the noise was well contained. Churchill's bunker (usually used by smokers) was a nice quiet and cosy place for a drink and some fresh air (no smokers in sight as it was a cold January night).

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting York. The location was excellent - close enough to walk to all the attractions and the train station. We even had a view of the Minster from our room! The rooms are tiny but very modern and clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We did not eat breakfast but we ate dinner here both nights. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. We will definitely stay at the Churchill Hotel when we visit York again someday!

We had an excellent stay at the Churchill and will be booking again. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This hotel is only a short walk from the city center so it is an ideal location. The only thing that let the hotel down slightly is that we felt that there could have been a wider choice for breakfast but apart from that we were very impressed.

Nice small hotel so staff recognise you and are really helpful and friendly... Much more so than in larger chain hotels.

Breakfast was really good, continental stuff all laid out and cooked breakfast made to order.

Only issue really was there was no way to control the temperature in the room and it was an absolutely boiling night. even with the window open I was still pretty hot.

Location was ideal - just 5 minutes walk to the Minster and centre of town but far enough away for it to be quiet at night.

Would definitely stay here again... A great hotel for the price!

We visited The Churchill Hotel for Sunday lunch at the end of April. It's a very well known hotel on the main road into York from the north so very easy to find and the location is excellent being a 5 minute walk into the city centre. Inside, the decor in the public areas is beautiful. The bar area, although small, is cosy and well designed, the staff in the bar were very friendly, helpful and anticipated our needs well. We chose from the printed menus and were shown to the restaurant when our table was ready.

We were offered a choice of breads from a basket, the variety was good. Starters sounded very impressive with the majority in our party choosing the chicken liver parfait, some tried the crayfish cocktail. Unfortunately, both were very disappointing and lacking in flavour.

The main courses were better with delicious, properly cooked beef and fantastic gravy. The vegetables were acceptable although nothing special, and the Yorkshire puddings were slightly burnt. The pork was not as good as the beef so most of us were disappointed with at least one part of the meal. Desserts were better with a good cheeseboard although the waitress did not know what the cheeses were and didn't offer to find out.

At £19.95 for 3 courses, The Churchill isn't a budget option for Sunday lunch, and we all felt a little let down by what is otherwise a beautiful building with excellent staff.
