Fantastic location, Very Quirky, Great Staff.
We stayed in a four poster room overlooking York Minster. The room was ample, complete with sloping floor. The bed was nice and comfy, and the welcome tray well stocked. The standard of cleaning was sadly lacking somewhat as several long black hairs were found on the crisp white bedding and in the en-suite.
The stairs up to the bedrooms are tricky after a few drinks from the bar ! This adds to the experience and the atmosphere.
The bad point of our stay was the breakfast . Whilst I do not like to be hurried, I do not think that waiting almost 30 minutes for a very poorly presented breakfast is acceptable. I accept that it may of been freshly made to order, but it took far too long to arrive. In my opinion , given the nightly rate to stay here, breakfast should not include tinned mushrooms !
