Finally got round to writing a review on this. Having been to York 3 times in the past, I decided to return for New Year 2012 with my then girlfriend. Researched lots of luxury hotels and settled on the Loft Suite in the Marmadukes Hotel. Overall we weren't disappointed and this is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. The Suite felt like a mini apartment and was tastefully decorated. Added the fact we stayed in winter time, it added to the cosy atmosphere, especially with the spot lights built into the roof.
Really comfy living room area, a separate toilet, bedroom with a large walk in cupboard and a luxury bathroom complete with bath, double shower / sink and a sauna. Nice view of York Minister from the bedroom. It was very clean and comfortable and we were sad to leave after a 4 night stay.
Staff were good and although breakfast didn't have the largest selection, it was filling and well presented. Nice cosy living areas downstairs to relax in and a small bar. The hotel itself is about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the city centre / train station and there are a good amount of car parking spaces within the grounds. Taxi to city centre was usually around £5.
Some of the few negatives include: DVD player wasn't in the living room area, therefore we had to take the smaller TV through from the bedroom with it's built-in DVD player to watch DVD's. A little areas of décor could have had better attention to detail. Finally, the door seal on the shower was faulty and would let water flood all over the floor, so you had to be a little careful with this so not to make a mess. These are all picky things
Would definitely recommend to couples and I would certainly come back again some time in the future once I find another girlfriend :-) 4.5 stars but closer to a 4 than a 5, though only just!
