“Good location and helpful staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

I stayed at the Queens hotel in York on business for 2 nights. It has a good location as within easy walking distance of the city centre and the staff were helpful. My room looked a little tired and the shower curtain needed replacing but in fairness the room was otherwise clean and of a good size. I did not have a river view which I'm guessing would have been preferable. There was a large group there and this made breakfast somewhat chaotic

My sleep,was disturbed a little by noise outside

Room Tip: Ask for a river view

I'm writing this having abandoned all attempts to get into breakfast at the moment. There is a lengthy queue to check in to the restaurant which has not been attended to for other five minutes. Reception fobbed me off with a tale of somebody having overslept.

Otherwise it's a large comfortable room although there could be some more sockets. It's a pity it's let down by the restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view if available.

The river view from the room was lovely (though need to pay extra). It was nice watching sun rise from the room. Location was good, close to places like The Shambles.

I personally think the hotel was not too clean compared to other places I stayed in for the same trip, but it was not that bad. Somehow the GPS had trouble finding the hotel by the post code, it may be just my machine.

Check-in was very fast.

Friendly welcome. Hotel parking at extra cost. Double room under roof. Quite spacious and clean with small bathroom. TV and Internet in room. Breakfast was unexciting with fresh fruit offered one morning but tinned fruit the next. Only toast and no fresh bread but croissant or similar. Cereals etc all in packets. Did not eat in hotel for dinner.

Just got back from a day and night out in York! Weather fantastic lovely sitting at the many pubs down the canal. Location if hotel fantastic for shopping and going round the pubs. Hotel quiet and comfortable. Breakfast had everything to offer but it was bland. The bath had a handful of small areas of enamel off.

Always with reviews a balance has to be struck between being over 'picky' and viewing amenities through rose coloured glasses. So trying to be even handed on arrival the welcome was not as stated in the leaflets "A warm welcome awaits you at the Queens Hotel" I was decidedly cool and my party of four all felt a slight disappointment at the off hand treatment. However the lifts worked fine (with the exception of the disabled lift, which was soon repaired) The room was clean, with just a few rouge spider webs, downside was the bedside light that fell of and the TV stand that didn't, also the card locks proved something of a lottery as to whether or not they would work with many trips back to reception to have then re-validated. Care was needed in the bathrooms as the water was VERY hot, hot enough to potentially scald a child. Notices need to be provided However on the credit side a personal tribute must be made to the lady who was in sole charge of the breakfast room and to everyones amazement enabled 40 /50 to take breakfast
she politely asked people to wait in the lounge whist she cleared and re-set tables the called them through she deserved a medal. (This took place on Tuesday 13th May) The breakfast when seated was fine, the housekeeping staff were very personable but reception.......
Conclusion: very good location all major tourist targets within 25 minutes walk, no major issues just bare in mind the above

Room Tip: The hotel seemed well insulated against external noise we were on the second floor which was fine, r...
