We have just returned from a post christmas break staying in the Belfry suite,which was much bigger than we expected with a landing connecting the bedroom,living room(with two double sofa beds) and bathroom which were all of good size. As the suite is within the eaves of roof I had to stoop quite a lot . I was happy to find the central heating working well when it was so cold outside and found the need to turn the stats down. From the living room window there is great views of the minster.Downstairs the public rooms are wood panelled and gas lit with breakfast served in the rear dining room. There was a wide choice for breakfast which was all good quality and all the staff were helpful with a positive friendly attitude. The only drawbacks I would say would be the numerous steps to the bedrooms and the car parking being a fair distance away but both of these issues are a trade off for staying in a 400 year old inn set right in the middle of York.
