Premier Inn York City (Blossom St North) Hotel
Ranked #17 of 47 Hotels in York
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 November 2009

I booked the Premier Inn, Central York on Trip Advisor recommendations for a business trip for myself and colleagues. The Premier Inn is well located, clean and the rooms are adequate but nothing to rave about - at £79 for the night - it pays to shop around.

Unexpectedly we had to stay an extra night and had to check out of the Premier as they only had one room. I remembered the Hotel Du Vin in York and managed to get beautiful rooms for £99 per night including breakfast. Absolute no comparison for the extra £20 and extra 5 minute walk.

After the reviews on here I think my expectations were unreasonably high.

Hotel is close to the station, benefit if you are travelling by train, but is a good 10 minute walk into the centre. Staff were pleasant. Our first room smelt of smoke and they were happy enough to move us to another one. The room is just your average standard Premier Inn room, again not a surprise, but for some reason due to the reviews I was expecting something more. We wanted to keep the room heater off during the night and asked for a blanket, and instead were given a duvet with no cover on as this was all they had, not the end of the world of course but didn't feel right to me.

Breakfast buffet was of a good standard, but if not included in your room rate costs £7.99 per person. As we went on a popular weekend, this meant that the room and breakfast for 2 cost £122, which is a lot for a Premier Inn, so remember to include this in your calculations.

All in all it was fine, if we had paid less I'm sure I would be more enthusiastic.

This was one of the best hotels that we've stayed in-and it was only £49 for ther room! The room was huge, bed was also huge and comfortable. Air con in the room , lovely and quiet and a perfect Italian restaurant a few door down. What a find!

This is the second Inn I've stayed at, the first being in Norwich, so I knew what to expect and wasn't disappointed. Great service, a cosy room, good food and friendly staff.

decent location, just outside city walls, and close to station; if arrive early enough, can get free parking - we had a disabled family member, so could park next to reception; car entrance is off Queen St, not Bloom St - this was not clear when we checked location initially, so watch out; staff very helpful and friendly - I can't remember all their names, but Daryl stood out in restaurant; breakfast good quality, excellent value; full evening menu food was very good, but 'meal deal' selection and quality was very ordinary; Costa coffee was good quality; restaurant area is a bit small if hotel is full - suggest reserving for evening, and you may have to wait for a table at breakfast; many rooms are in 2 separate blocks next door to main hotel, and there is no covered walkway betewen, so you get wet if it's raining; main complaint with hotel is noisy plumbing and poor soundproofing (creaky floorboards; doors banging; people talking in corridors audible in rooms; gurgling air-conditioning) - however, after I complained, they were very apologetic, refunded our first night's stay, and moved us to a much quieter room at end of corridor on top floor (we were in Block 2 - I think rooms in Block 3 are near a bar with an outside seating area, which must be a source of noise in the Summer). The way the staff handled this complaint, and their overall friendliness were impressive.

The hotel is great value and all the staff we met were helpful, efficient and friendly. We spent very little time in the room, but it was clean, comfortable and didn't feel as though we were forgoing the little touches you'd normally expect in a budget chain. We weren't lucky enough to get a parking space, but it was a very busy 'half term' weekend. The breakfast service was very busy, and the staff were particularly attentive given they were run off their feet!
