We booked into Marmdukes to explore the city of York and take in the festive St Nicolas Fayre. Although pre warned about how busy it would be we were still not prepared for the crowds and soon decided to give the fayre a miss and stick to the sights which are numerous. We received a friendly greeting from the reception team and were shown up to our room which was clean, well furnished and cosy. We had a lovely free-standing roll top bath. We had read reviews about the lack of hot water but this was not our experience; there was plenty. There is no restaurant at the hotel but that was no problem as Marmadukes is a mere 5 minute stroll into the City centre passing many food and watering holes on the way. Breakfast is served in the breakfast room and the full English was delicious. I didn't need another thing until the evening. The down side to this was I missed out on a cream tea! I don't think we saw a member of staff over about 25 years of age and all were polite, friendly and helpful. Limited parking is possible on site for a small charge but keys need to be left at reception with the staff moving vehicles in and out 'Butterfly' style as required. We managed to park outside on the road for free on the Sunday. We love York and will be back again soon and would have no hesitation in booking Marmadukes next time round.
