“Great mid-week break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

We we're looking for a well priced mid-week break whilst my son was away with school. The hotel was in a fantastic location ideal for the attractions of the city.
The hotel was clean and tidy, providing everything that we expected for the price and more. Free Wi-Fi was a nice bonus.
The staff at The Queens were very friendly and attentive, from breakfast to a late drink in the bar the whole experience was a great break. Breakfast was the perfect way to start the day with a buffet style of great food.
We would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a River view, a great outlook.

My sister and I stayed here for a long weekend on a dinner bed and breakfast basis. On arrival the staff were very helpful and check in was speedy. Our room was on the first floor and it was very spacious, clean and bright. One double bed and one single. Bathroom with bath and shower very clean also.Towels changed daily if required.

The buffet breakfast was very nice, plenty variety and if you required a boiled egg or fried egg you only had to ask. Staff were very pleasant.

Dinner was excellent. A good choice and served very quickly. No complaints at all. We would definately return but would book a river view next time.

Room Tip: Rooms are very quiet on the first floor and a river view would be a nice plus.

We stayed at the queens hotel for the first time thro living social deal but on arrival we found we had to pay an extra £10 on top of our bill for having a river view and £10 per night for car park. Receptionist on arrival was not very friendly. Buffet breakfast was cold. The young waiter at breakfast was very helpful when we complained . Bedroom was clean and comfortable. Locality was good.

Room Tip: River view if you can afford extra cost king sized bed if possible

Stayed overnight in superior room overlooking River Ouse. Hotel booking had been straight forward with |Groupon voucher and room large corner allocated. The room was clean - only minor point was mould/greying of shower tiles which only needed a deep clean to put right. Breakfast was buffet/self-service and was regularly replenished. Close to the centre within 3 mins walking to main shopping area. Would use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Room overlooking river.

Me and my partner stayed in one of the self-catering apartments that this hotel offers and I have to say, it was the best weekend I have had in a long, long time.
The apartments themselves were beautiful and modern whilst staying cosy. For breakfast, we went to the hotel and got a full English buffet, it was excellent!
This hotel is right where you want it to be, right on the river and in the city centre.
If you are planning on going to York for a short stay, I recommend you stay in their self-catering apartments!

This hotel is in a great location to visit York. My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was standard but clean and quiet, the buffet breakfast was brilliant, and the staff pleasant. Around a 10 minute walk from the train station and only a few minutes walk to the main sights of York. Would definately recommend and would probably stay here again.
