Although we loved the outdoor cafe area....we thought it was poor value for money as the room was £87 for a double with continental breakfast and no en-suite facilities and very hot and poky.
Sorry Nuns but I think its a bit of a rip off and the prices in the cafe were also very expensive. Not very friendly service at the cafe for breakfast. I expected people to be really friendly in such a religious based place to be great role models...hmm. Unfortunately, I would rather stay out of York in a family B and B.
However, it was great to have a fan in the room as it was such a hot night. Without it...I would certainly have checked out.
