Quite easy to find, off the A19 north of the city centre. A very pleasant setting within walking distance of the centre, fairly quiet, with a tree lined avenue.
We had a four poster room (505), with a very nice balcony over looking the trees at the front. It was very hot when we arrived, so it was good to sit out there, lovely in the morning for a cup of tea: although in fact there was nowhere else to sit in the room anyway, other than on the bed. The room had a good bath, but only a hand shower over it and you need to be careful with the hot/cold controls.
Wifi was intermittent in the room and could not get it most of the time on the ipad. Not good enough in this day and age. A friendly receptionist, who in the end offered to help my wife who was struggling with bags.
The main building has a couple of nice lounges and the receptionist offered to serve drinks, but there was no food on offer on the Friday night when we were there. However, a walk down the road into the city centre gives you a world of choice.
The English breakfast in the morning was freshly cooked and good quality. Friendly servers.
Overall it was a very good stay, convenient for York.
