This hotel is located about 10 minutes walk from York Centre, so is in a pretty good location and just off one of the main roads into York - so it's pretty easy to find.
There's parking on the site which they charge out at £5 for 24 hours - although it's 'first come, first served' and it's quite tight.
The main hotel is very nice - a decent sized lounge, a bar area and a very nice bright breakfast/dining room area. It's got an intentional very 'old fashioned' feel about it.
The room I had was disappointingly small - you couldn't swing a cat in it (well, you could but you would bang it's head off all four walls). The bathroom was clean but only had a shower and I was kind of looking forward to a bath. However, the shower was excellent with plenty of power in it rather than the dribbly showers you get in some other older hotels.
There was a desk to work on in the room - but it was too small to really be of any practical use, so I gave up on that. The TV was small - but OK with plenty of freeview channels.
The best thing about the room was that the bed was very comfortable - I had a great night's sleep and it was nice and peaceful.
I didn't have dinner in the hotel - but I did have breakfast, which was excellent. The waitress serving was very pleasant and helpful as well.
In short, York can be quite expensive for hotels. If you're getting this for less than £60, then it's decent value as long as you're not planning on spending lots of time in the room. Much more character than a holiday inn express or a travelodge. Somewhere between a 3 and 4 out of 5 I would say.
