Stayed here for 2 nights while we visited York for the weekend. We got a taxi from the train station to get our bearings and it cost between £6-7 to reach the hotel. City centre is very easy to reach by taxi or by public transport. Bus stop is just on the main road and about 5 min walk from hotel front door. You can get an all day ticket for under £4.
When we arrived we were checked in quickly and we had a twin room on the ground floor. The room was a good size and had two comfy single beds, a chair in the corner, a desk, tv, wardrobe space, kettle and ironing board. The bathroom had a great shower in it and the usual toiletries you expect from a holiday inn.
Now this is my only gripe with the hotel and it is only a small one - we went to the desk to ask a question regarding the buses and there was 2 receptionists talking to each other, they turned round saw we were at reception but then carried on talking and left us standing there for quite a few minutes more. I would of minded if they carried on talking if the said to us ' I'll just be a minute' or similar. Ok Gripe over and that was a wee blip in this lovely hotel
We dined in the restaurant both night we were there and the food was amazing - i would highly recommend the pork belly or the sizziling pork as they were so scrummy and so tasty. The food was always piping hot and had lots and lots of flavour. If you order a side with your meal you get lots of it. We had chunky chips & roasted veg and we shared them between us. You didnt have to wait long for your food to arrive either and all the restaurant staff were very friendly and chatty.
This hotel might not be right in the city centre but is a great hotel to stay at when visiting york and is so easy to get to and is very quiet area to stay in.
Hopefully be back in beautiful york soon and this will be our first choice for our hotel
