This hotel is the sister hotel of The Guy Fawkes Inn in York. My b/f and i had booked to stay at The Guy Fawkes Inn however they had messed up our resevation and didn't have any rooms left to accommodate us. Luckily their sister hotel Marmadukes did have availability and so they sent us there with an upgraded room and a free drink at the Guy Fawkes Inn when we returned for our dinner.
Marmadukes is a lovely hotel, with friendly staff. It's a good 15-20 minute walk to York center though. The bedroom was ok, a bit oldy-worldy which wasn't to my taste (old furniture makes me feel uneasy!) and you couldn't see the TV once you got in bed as the bars on the (four poster) bed got in the way! The main hotel where the reception is situated is much nicer however we had a good sleep and we were able to request a late check-in with no extra cost which was great.
Breakfast was excellent, well worth getting out of bed for! Overall, another lovely stay in York.More
