“Really Excellent Service”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We've just returned from a great weekend in York made even better by the staff at this Travelodge. They made us very welcome and let us store our bikes in the old dining room. Very friendly, helpful and pleasant. Great service all round. The only issue was people returning from a lively night in town were loud in the road outside as we had the window open, but that's not the fault of the hotel. Nice, very clean room and facilities all satisfactory. We had a great breakfast in the Wetherspoons next door at a good price. There's a covered walkway between the hotel and the weatherspoons so its almost like having a pub in the hotel. Shame the television didn't show ITV 4 on the weekend of the Tour De France, allowing us to watch the results or Radio 4 which seems very strange.

Room Tip: The sleep quality would have been excellent but for the passers by. Keep the windows shut at the fro...

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on our way to Whitby. We were early so just wanted to park the car somewhere. We were assisted by a very pleasant and helpful receptionist, parked up and went into the town. When we came back we could check in and were very pleased with the new look of the room as we were aware that many Travelodges have recently been refurbished. The bed was very comfortable and the room including the bathroom was freshand spotlessly clean. There are no toiletries or hairdryer etc. but we did not expect this at the very reasonable price.

All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Well done to the Travelodge chain for bringing your rooms up to date at a good price.

The only downside was that the draymen delivered quite early in the morning, but, we were aware when booking that it was attached to a pub.

The hotel is lovely and clean and in a fab location in the centre of york but it was spoilt by having no air con. The room was so hot that we had to have the window open which meant the noise level was incredible. I expected some road noise but not too this level. We also had a problem with the 1st room we had and ended up moving rooms at 11 the 1st night as the room was next to some plant room and you could feel the whole room vibrating , there was no way anyone could sleep in there. The staff were lovely and helpful, but it was nice to come home and get a good nights sleep

Room Tip: if you get room 223 swap straightaway!

We have just had a lovely weekend in York. York is a beautiful place, lots to see, street entertainers exceptionally talented. There are 2 travelodges in York, the other being the micklegate one. If in doubt as to which one to choose, definitely choose the Piccadilly one. Our friends couldn't get a room in the piccadilly one and so had to settle on the micklegate, and had a few problems due to the fact that it is on a very busy street and right next door to a night club, and so the noise is too much. The windows have to be open as there is no air conditioning and so that made it worse. So choose the Piccadilly one. We had no problems with noise even though wetherspoons is right next door. We found that very handy for beakfast. Our friends in the other Travelodge, which does breakfast, didn't think that it was value for money.so I would suggest you go out for breakfast if you stay there. The Piccadilly Travelodge is only 10 minutes from the centre and 15 from the station, and our room had a lovely view of the river foss. I would definitely recommend this Travelodge and will go back soon!

Room Tip: the rooms overlooking the river seem to be the quietest.

This hotel is only 15 mins walk from York train station, right next door to wetherspoons and 10 mins walk in to city centre. Lovely location, we couldnt have asked for more. Will definately be going back again, had a brilliant time. Lovely staff, lovely rooms

Pros: Clean rooms, good size rooms, friendly staff, good price, good location, close car parks if you drive.

Cons: only 30 mins free wifi, crappy chain hotel towels, no AC so rooms were quite warm, this necessitated leaving the windows (and shades) open at night to get some air in; this makes it hard to sleep as it started getting light shortly after 4 AM.

Didn't really mind the cons as the price was right.

Had a long weekend at this great hotel with friends, so easy to walk into York city centre, parking is not too far away with discounted parking charges from hotel with a voucher.
Very helpful young lad staff member on the front desk called Ian. Also a very friendly manager. Weatherspoons bar is next door for nice breakfast and dinners. To help your stay go easy and hassle free ask for a room that faces outer road and not in the inner courtyard this is for noise reduction from smokers standing in courtyard. This is something that is outwith travelodge's control.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms not in the inner courtyard area.
