Reviewed 16 March 2012

Had a fantastic stay, beautiful accommodation in a fab location. Loved all the extras and for the gentleman who complained about having to cook their own breakfast, it does tell you this on the website. Have stayed twice now, and will always come back for a special occasion.

This was our second time at the Blue Rooms and it is still easy to see why it is rated so highly as everything is first class. The champagne and fruit bowl in the room, the fluffy towels and dressing gowns, the Moulton Brown toiletries,the huge roll top bath, the fully equipped kitchen and a fridge full of breakfast goods, soft drinks, milk etc. There is a charge of 10 pounds for a bottle of wine but there is even free gin, whisky and beer...it has everything. The apartment (number 5 this time, number 4 last time) overlooked the river Fosse. There is free parking and as for location location location it is in a great place for all amenities in York. We can not recommend these apartments highly enough.

Really enjoyed this special little appartment... we had appartment number 5 complete with windows overlooking the river, four poster bed and roll top bath...! it's such a nice place, wtih great touches like, fruit bowls, champagne and a 'cook your own' breakfast! After breakfast we fed the ducks from a balcony window with the remaining bread. I get the feeling that the knew the routine, as because as soon as the bacon started frying, they started congregating at our balcony window! Expensive, but, worth it...

We arrived early and the room was ready, we were warmly greeted and shown to our room and the convenient parking outside.

The photos on the web site do not do this room justice (room 5), it was beautiful, spotlessly clean and great extras including champagne, fruit bowl, mineral water, etc.

The contential breakfast was lovely.

The view and the location was second to none, right in the centre of York, everything within short walking distance.

Will definately be back, hopefully soon!!!

Have just spent a wonderful weekend at The Blue Rooms, staying in the Fosse Room. I booked the weekend for my partners birthday and he really enjoyed it. The room was just perfect. It had everything we could have wanted. A welcome break for both of us, away from pets, the kids and life in general. For anyone thinking of booking I would offer the following tips, 1) Remember it is essentially a self catering apartment, dont expect maid service, 2) If you leave at check out time (10:30) you will see the cleaner so no hassles with dropping off keys, 3) Either pay on arrival or, pay the day before you leave so again, no hassles with paying the bills. For myself and my partner, self catering with little or no intrusion from the management is perfect which is why the Blue Rooms suit us down to the ground. All the little touches, champagne, chocolates, fruit, preserves, soft drinks and a wonderfully comfortable bed and fantastic bath only add to the experience, not to mention the daily loaf of freshly baked bread. I could go on and on but suffice to say, a gem of a place, one which you would be silly to miss. We will defintely return.

Whilst I too would like to keep the Blue Rooms a secret I would hate to deny anyone the pleasure that we had staying there...WHAT more can I add to the views of the last reviewer. It certainly has the WOW factor, is in an excellent location in central York, the facilities in the rooms/suites are second to none and the service excellent, to say nothing of the champagne, breakfast in the fridge, the fruit, chocolates, comfort and free parking.

Dinner in the Blue Bicycle was excellent too!

We will be back and soon I hope!

Just spent another wonderful week-end at The Blue Rooms.

To celebrate our sons 33rd birthday, the 3 of us spent a memorable week-end in room 3, from booking in to checking out the service was impecable, The location is so great we just grazed and watered at various haunts.
To anyone reading the previous review, please do not be swayed, although we would love to keep it as our special place you need to visit for yourselves to experience this little oasis.
This morning as we ate our wonderful full english, yes we cooked it ourselves, not rocket science, we fed the ducks from the bedroom and saw a 2 foot pike swim by.
Just re-booked for New Year again, we LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
