Friendly, clean and well placed hotel. Very highly recommended and great value for money. Perfect for anyone thinking of visiting York. Friendly staff made it a pleasure and fine breakfast an added bonus.

This is a well run little place. Clean and welcoming. I liked the attention to detail of the staff. For example there was a good choice of breakfast cereal and over Easter there were hot cross buns and choccie eggs at breakfast. Walking distance to York city centre if you're doing the tourist thing.

Second time I have stayed, both for work, and I just needed somewhere clean, comfortable, hot & cold running water and a good breakfast. I have to say it more than acheived on all points. I was welcomed on arrival with a smooth quick sign in. The hotel room was spacious clean well appointed with a great bathroom. The bed was really comfortable and a great location close enough to the city to walk but far enough away to be quiet. The breakfast was fast hot and tasty. One thing I would say is if you want to drive into the city in the morning be warned it is very busy round there. All in all I would say it is well recommended.

This is like so many british hotels, in need of modernisation. Our room - 1A was small and shabby, badly in need of decoration, the ancient toilet had no handbasin, you had to walk across the room to the shower room, which was grotty and 70's avocado green. That said, the beds, although small, were comfortable and clean.
The breakfast was lovely and the dining rooms and lounge were nice too. The biggest plus for us was that the hotel has free parking, that in itself must be worth £15 - 20 pounds! The hotel is an easy walk into central York and there was no problem at all in the morning leaving the car while we had a last look around the walls before we set off home. The staff were unfailing helpful. We would stay here again, although we would hope to get a nicer room next time, and apparently some of the rooms have been renovated.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the modernised rooms.

Reviewed 18 February 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I read some goo and bad reviews so did not know what to expect. The decor in the common areas is a bit dated, but the room was impeccably clean and modernised and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is not perfect, as I was expecting it to be in the centre, but there is a bus stop right in front of it and taxi rides are very cheap (less than £5). The cooked breakfast could be better, but overall I definitely recommend this for a budget hotel.

If you are looking for a decent hotel thats quite near the centre you could do a lot worse than staying here, its a gentle 10 minute walk from the train station, the staff are polite and helpful and the rooms are comfortable and clean - breakfast is more than ample. I've paid a lot more money to stay in far worse hotels, highly recommended.

I'll echo the post of another recent reviewer : "Stayed here for a weekend trip to York and it's a good budget option. ... and breakfast buffet was good with full cooked English breakfast available too. The location is perfect - just 10 minutes' walk from the station and city centre. In short, not super fancy, but a good basic hotel."

We were here between Christmas and New Year's Eve 2012 and the hotel provides comfortable, convenient accommodation with easy access to the Train Station (and National Railway Museum) and city centre (especially as it included parking - Some of the big hotels by the river had no parking when we stayed as their underground car parks were flooded!).

The cooked breakfasts were excellent, generous and freshly cooked to our request.

Only negatives were the kids' room had some stains on the carpet and shower in our room wasn't a proper one (came off the taps) and didn't provide usable pressure, but neither would dissuade us from staying at this comfortable, friendly hotel again.

Thanks.
