The Churchill Hotel
Ranked #24 of 47 Hotels in York
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Stayed at Churchill Hotel as son was getting married at the registry office which was quite near.
We upgraded our room to superior after reading reviews that the executive room was a standard room and very small.
We were given room 132 which we were very pleased with.
We had breakfast included which was very nice.
All the staff that we dealt with were very helpful and friendly.
If in York again would definitely consider staying here again.
Not far from all the main attractions in York.
The availability of free parking was a definite bonus as parking in York is quite expensive.

Room Tip: We had room on 1st floor. A superior room 132 and would recommend it. There is a view of the Minster...

The hotel is in ideal location to the attraction in York. The staff were friendly and helpful. The family room that we stayed in was very small for four people. But the positive note was that each of my teenagers had their own bed. I would recommend this room for just a short stay, anything longer and it could feel claustrophobic.

Had a lovely weekend at this hotel spending three nights in the quirky named 10 Downing Street bedroom. From check in to leaving we wish we had stayed longer. When we arrived we were pleased to find that the receptionist Dave had upgraded us as they had a few rooms spare and then proceeded to give us a map of the area and tell us a few facts about York. The room was very comfortable and very clean, no faults there. We had dinner which was very good and the staff were attentive. The Bar area although a little small was very friendly and had a nice selection of drinks. Breakfast was extremely good, fresh and loads of choice with a extremely friendly waitress called Helen who never seemed to take her smile away! One gripe we did have tho was something we also noticed at dinner that when we went to eat the cutlery smelt a bit like vinegar as we were eating, nothing major tho. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the centre and its a lovely walk down so no need for a taxi which is always a bonus. Will be sure to stay here again next time we are in the area.

Nice hotel with plenty of character close to the city centre, staff are extremely helpful and friendly, food was to a high standard and reasonably priced. Rooms on the first floor on the small side but well equipped. Free parking and wifi, would definitely stay here again.

All the staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. The bedroom was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was excellent.

The evening meal was a real treat - fabulous food beautifully presented. Breakfast the following morning was also very good.

The free wifi was welcome too, although there are 2 iMacs in the lobby for the use of guests travelling without their own devices.

The location is good too - about a five minute walk to the city wall.

All in all it was a very good experience that I hope to repeat at some time.

We expected a lot more from our EXECUTIVE room it was very small felt crampt 9ft by 9ft BED very small only a 3qtr bed not even a double now we are very sad !! and no comfort at all one chair not comfy pillows two tea bags per day one pack broken bicuits TO SHARE car park exeptionally overcrowded and tight to manouver by allowing other events going on and not taking residents parking into consideration no air con !! so when i opened window recycling bags were under our window not nice ! if theres a positive it was the shower MEGA !! Near to amenities We were shocked to find no breakfast in the price so IF BREAKFAST was include for the extortionate price we could have commented on its quality we wont be going back as other hotels nearby were far better and included breakfast we were very dissapointed on our return to york dont think after our experience we will be returning JOHN AND CHRIS WEST MIDLANDS

Dear John and Chris,

I am truly sorry that your stay didn't live up to your expectations.

Whilst our guest's satisfaction is of paramount concern to us we must take issue with a couple of points raised;
-in double bedrooms all of our beds are at minimum a double in size.
-breakfast is available to book at extra cost but you chose the cheaper 'room only' rate when booking.
-we consider our room rates to be fair and actually feel that discounted August deals as low as £75 per room in the heart of the city with free parking should not be called extortionate.

I can assure you that in no way do we ever seek to mislead.
John

The Management of this hotel do everything they can to make your stay pleasurable, the breakfasts, apart from the self service starters i.e. cereal, yogurts and toast, are served by waitresses from a chosen menu either full english or eggs benedict for example. Makes a change from over cooked food sitting in heated trays. The only problem is that the standard rooms are very very small, only one person in a bathroom at a time. We asked to be upgraded for a fee and were given the Marrakesh suite which was quite suitable. No air conditioning so we had the window open during the night which was not a problem as we were on the first floor. A five minute walk from the center and all the attractions. Coffee and tea making facilities in the room and toiletries supplies with large white fluffy towels. 15 Min walk from the station Good place to stay for your visit to York. The Raj restaurant 5 mins from hotel is a good indian restaurant and reasonably priced. At 6.30 in the evening it was almost full for a Monday.

Room Tip: Any of the suites is you need room to breathe!!
