My partner and I stayed here for one night when we were in York for his company's Christmas 'do.
Yes, the decor is rather dated, but I actually found it rather charming. The room was a little small, but it had all of the essentials - it even had a small plasma TV on the wall with plenty of channels! The bathroom was an avacado suite, but it was clean enough so I can't say it bothered us! The temperature of the water in the shower was a little temperamental, but once you'd got it in the right place it was fine.
The staff there were great, very friendly and welcoming. When we arrived we were in such a rush as we had to shower and change to get there on time, and my fiance asked for an iron to use as he hadn't bothered to iron his shirt (men, eh?) one of the hosuekeepers offered to iron his short for him, then bought it to our room for us! The waiters/waitresses serving breakfast were happy to change things from the menu (great as I'm a fussy eater) and were tolerant of our inevitable hangovers! The receptionist also offered to put our bags in the back-room for safekeeping when checking out as we wanted to wander around York for a bit then pick up the car, so we didn't have to lug our overnight bags and dress/suit bags through York in the snow and ice!
Overall, yes it's a bit dated (and you do feel like you're in an episode of Fawlty towers) but it's clean, has all of the essentials, and the staff are friendly and helpful.
