This hotel was in an excellent location close to the train station, York Minister, Railway museum and all major attractions in York. Reception very nice, bar area nice and breakfast area nice. Gardens looked lovely but due to weather we didn't sit in them. Our room was on the bottom floor. Room fairly small compared to the pictures I had looked at (we had a twin room) but with two beds, wardrobe, drawers, tv and tea/coffee the room had all we needed for a two day stay. However the room was VERY dusty. Even the remote control had dust on it. The walls were even dusty. In the bathroom the toiletries smelled lovely lol. The shower is AMAZING and although I never had a bath my friend did and loved the Jacuzzi bath with mood lighting. The bath however is pretty small. A 6ft there was no way you could lie comfortably in it. Either feet out or knees up :-D
Breakfast was fine - scrambled eggs a tad watery and therefore was unable to eat the toast it was on. But poached eggs and fried eggs were fine, good tea and cereal selection. Personal preference is I would have liked yoghurt but that's personal.
Had little interaction with the staff so cant really comment although they seemed happy enough.
