Went there for Easter break 2014. The hotel looks considerably new from outside. The inside view of the hotel looks slightly aged but clearly clean. Would be a wonderful view if you stay on the river side wing.
If you are expecting a nice warm welcome from the staffs, please don't. The staffs there are okay: not rude but neither welcoming. I have noted to the hotel when I booked from a site (somewhere else) that I would like to check-in early. There was no response from the hotel at all, so I thought it was alright to do an early check-in. Unfortunately, the staff, when I arrived, just said that the hotel has no such service. The hotel is opened for check-in at 14.30.
The room I had was great in size. I don't think I can find any larger room elsewhere from what I have paid. The room had a very small TV. Would be very hard to lay down on the bed and watch.
I am quite unhappy with the cleanliness of the bathroom. The marble sink has fungus in the corners. The towel shelve is a bit dusty.
I personally do not travel with soap and shampoo, and I regret it. There is soap but no shampoo provided. So make sure you bring yours.
My trip to York would be fulfilled if stayed in a better hotel.
