My partner and I decided on the Queens hotel as she has stayed here before, it is good value compared to other central York hotels and the rooms are a good size with both baths and showers.
The location is fantastic. Right next to the river and a short walk to all the attractions of York City Centre. Our room was fine although the whole place is in need of a bit of a facelift. It was extremely hot and airless in our room and the window would only open a few inches. We asked about the possibility of changing rooms but the hotel was fully booked. So we asked for a fan as it really was so hot and airless that it was uncomfortable to spend any length of time in. The reception staff (please smile) said they would try and get a fan for our room if one became available. One did not, however, become available, so we resorted to borrowing one that a member of the cleaning staff kindly left on the landing between the stairs.
The breakfasts were very good. A wide variety of choices and well prepared. Just a shame the juices and milk were not chilled.
It was a VERY busy weekend in York - absolutely heaving with hen and stag parties, very drunk people and even a man who had clearly consumed a bit too much Sam Smiths throwing himself in the river in an attempt to catch a duck!
I'm glad to say that things settled down again on the Sunday and York returned to its usual self.
So generally a pleasant, good value stay. We would come to the queens hotel again if we could get a room with a river view and a window that opens next time.
