Arrived early and were allowed to leave our bags at the hotel so that we could explore the shops of York. Came back for lunch around 1:30pm and the food was great; the lunch menu had plenty of choice. We couldn't check into our room due to a fault with the card-lock which was an inconvenience and our bags were locked in there! However, staff gave us a drink on the house and kept shopping bags in the office for safe-keeping. On return, we were given room 6 and our bags had been moved (I believe the handy man had to climb through the window to get them!) Room was very clean and bright with a comfortable bed but we had no iron to sort out the clothes that had been crumpled in our bags for so long! However, very pleased with our room and facilities in it- had a very large shower and a large mirror to get ready with. One small problem was the rather large gap beneath the door as it didn't fit the frame properly- the light kept my partner awake. Breakfast was fine, nothing special but still nice. A lovely, quirky hotel in the heart of the city centre with very pleasant and helpful staff. Would book again on our return to York.
