“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We spent three nights here on our first visit to York (and our first holiday together). The hotel is just a short walk from Bootham Bar and the city centre which made it easier to explore.

The hotel is not part of a chain which could mean anything, but Hedley House is very far frombeing Fawlty Towers. From check in to check out every part of the stay was spot on. The staff are friendly and helpful, the room was clean and tidy (until we unpacked!), the breakfast choices were wide and dietary preferences well catered for. We dined in on our last night and potentially this could have been a challenge as on the precedingnights we had eaten at two excellent restaurants in York. However the meal was first class and one of the owners (who was standing in for Chef who had the night off) came to enquire whether the meal was alright. There was absolutely no need as everything was superb, but I give full credit to her coming to ask.

We are planning to come to York again and hopefully we can stay here again. York is a popular place and when racing takes place the hotels fill quickly - as one enquirer who phoned as we were checking out found out!

Booked for two nights, loved it so much stayed an extra night. Because we last minute booked a night we stayed in two rooms. Both lovely, clean, comfortable with great showers. Staff at the hotel so friendly and helpful particularly Sarah. Breakfast good, the evening meal and room snack good. 5 min walk from Minster with free parking. To sum it up, clean, comfortable, convenient with good staff. All you need.

Room Tip: Room 19, ideal for disabled. Large, quiet with accessible shower.

This hotel - rather like a souped-up b&b, with all mod cons - has several things going for it. It is very conveniently located, has free parking (not an easy thing to find in the central part of the city) , excellent breakfast and lovely staff. No elevator though, but you can ask for a lower floor room. Very unlike a chain hotel, but with loads more charm. We enjoyed it.

Stayed there for a 2 night break with my mum, the room was large and very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. The breakfast was lovely with attentive, friendly staff. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the centre of York. Would definately go back again.

Booked the Hedley House to enjoy my partners birthday. Glad we did. The hotel was very central for everything we wanted to do in York during our 3 night stay. The staff on arrival were very friendly, helpful and we were booked in within minutes. Our room was large, cozy and very comfortable, inclusive of a great sized bathroom with bath, shower, plenty hot water and toiletries included.. We enjoyed the quirkiness and style of the hotel as we are not overly keen on modern rectangular box type hotels. We enjoyed the layout, as there are several dining areas and lounge/relaxation areas to enjoy tv, reading etc.The breakfasts were great, with plenty choices and plenty nicely cooked food on the plates. We had a great time in York and would definitely recommend this hotel and would like to stay here again.
However if you wish to stay somewhere with no character, perhaps this is not the right hotel for you.
