“Excellent value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

Stayed for a 3 night break in room on 2nd floor. No lift as building quite old so if anyone is unable to climb 3 flights of stairs I would advise they request a room on a lower floor when booking.
Room quite big with high ceilings, extremely comfortable bed and room warm without being overly so. Although the railway line is quite close we were not disturbed by any train noise. Small en suite bathroom, good size shower but water pressure low. While there was a small mirror on the (dressing) table there was no chair so doing hair and makeup was quite difficult, May I suggest a full length mirror on the wall near a power point to overcome this.
The breakfast was excellent with a choice of cereals, fruit juices and full english or any combination of it, as preferred. Another selling point for me was the free car park, there appeared to be a parking space for each room so you could go out in the car during the day and still have a space on your return, not always possible even in larger hotels.
The owner and staff were extremely helpful, we were given a map of the city on arrival together with a short guide as to where we were in relation to popular sights. A pleasant walk into town but after a full day sightseeing it seemed a long way to walk back, however there a good pubs and restaurants close by so you don't have to go back into town for your evening meal or a nightcap.

Have been here whilst attending interviews in the city. We asked for same room as it was given at a slightly cheaper rate (perhaps as it was empty?) on both visits staff were friendly and genuinely interested in people breakfast was good (i don't remember mushrooms being boiled) and the biggish car park out the back was one main reason as York has very high london type charges for parking if we went back there again which I'm sure we will we'd go back there again :-)

Room Tip: Phone in advance as they were helpful and appreciated a little planning

Nicely locate on the outskirts of the town centre,about 15minutes walk. The room was plain but clean. A good breakfast was provided by good natured friendly staff. For the price we paid it was good value for money. The owner informed us that the building was due for redecoration and improvements in the near future. Would happily stop here again for a few nights.

Room Tip: Most the rooms are up stairs and some road noise it the front.

Stayed here for the October race meeting. Rooms were clean and adequate, breakfast was excellent. All the staff were very friendly and attentive. Would certainly reccommend this hotel for a value for money stay in a good location for all Yorks attractions.

Lovely building, but a bit dated inside. Towel rail was hanging off in the bathroom and we couldn't open the window in the bedroom. Cleanliness also an issue, lots of dust in the rooms. Breakfast a big dissapointment, boiled mushrooms, wasn't very warm either. Location to city centre about 20 mins walk away. Booked a twin room, got a double bed and a childs single bed, good job one of us was petite to be able to fit on...very short in length. Mattresses hard as well. Probably wouldn't stay here again to be honest.

What a shame, this b&b has the potential to be lovely, great location and impressive building. The problem is the decor is very tired and doesn't look like it's been decorated for 20 years. The room we stayed in was small and grotty with wall paper hanging off the wall, not very relaxing at all.
It cost £80 per night which for what you got was too expensive and dissapointing as it was clear the accomodation has had no money spent on it.
I wouldn't recommend this b&b if you're wanting to get away for something special or a romantic weekend. All in all it's depressing, grotty, and very poor value for money. I will never stay here again.

My wife and I stopped for one night in this lovely Hotel.Clean, comfortable, quiet and the standard of room and customer service where second to none. Within easy reach of the town center this hotel is as the advert says close to all York's attractions and walk-able. The breakfast was first class and the staff couldn't do enough to help.I would definitely recommend this hotel and will certainly be staying there on any future visits to York.

Room Tip: We stopped in a suite at this hotel which was very spacious and roomy plus being on the back of the...
