Booked with the wife for 1 night prior to a Wedding in York. It was very well priced and included a cooked breakfast which was actually very good. I have to say this is one of the quirkiest Hotels we've ever stopped in. As the name suggests its was a Convent until 1985. The Room was large and en-suite (some rooms aren't) and looks like it was recently refurbished. It was well insulated from the sounds of the City. It is in a good location with Bars and restaurants in tripping distance. The hotel has lovely cafe if your just after a snack before heading into the city. On the downside it doesn't have its own car park, but the Pay and Display is right next to it but can be expensive. We arrived at around 3pm and paid eight pound which took us to 08:01 the next morning this was a bit of a pain as it meant we had to get up earlier than we'd hoped.
We would use it again.
