Reviewed 6 February 2011

I chose this hotel via TripAdvisor and am glad I did. Just one night, I was upgraded from a small single to a half tester room -beautiful, with roll top bath! They even let me leave my car in carpark for the day after I'd checked out as they were quieter, saving me the trouble of reparking in the city. Very friendly staff. Made my weekend feel like a real treat.

Marmadukes is a beautiful Victorian boutique hotel situated just a short walk from the historic city of York. It was the second time we have stayed here, the first time was back in February when we stayed in the four poster room. This time we stayed in the very spacious loft room, which unlike the rest of the hotel has a modern twist in its decor. The suite itself has its own living area, bedroom and an amazing bathroom with a roll top bath, double shower and a barrel sauna! The breakfasts are good, a great menu with plenty of variety. The staff are extremely friendly, nothing seems to much trouble, highly recommended.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights at the beginning of November. The room was good if a little on the small size but the bathroom was massive. Our stay here was overall nice but there were a couple of small issues, no towels in the bathroom (only hand towels), tea/coffee was not topped up however these were resolved with a quick call to reception. Breakfast was good and it was nice to have the choice and serves in a lovely room in main building. The only downside was

I booked this hotel for my parents anniversary on their arrival they got a free room upgrade, fruit and chocolates in the room and complementary drinks in the bar. My parents said the rooms were clean,comfortable and looked like they do on the website. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was excellent.

We stayed at Marmadukes over Christmas and it was lovely. The room we had was a four poster with a roll top bath. The bed was huge-made me feel like a small child as my feet didn't touch the floor when I sat up, or the end when I lay down. The furniture in the room was gorgerous-all old and dark. My other half and I spent ages taking photos on the victorian sofa and giggling at the old chamber pot tht at first glance looked like a foor stool!
The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times, despite a problem with the key cards and having to run up and down the stairs constantly.
We had drinks in the bar, which were very well priced for a hotel and had breakfast to our room on both mornings. The breakfast was on time, hot and served with a smile!
A short straight walk takes you to the minster, where there is a ace ghost walk at 7.30pm and also on Gillygate (which you cross just before going through the wall arch) there is a restaurant called cafe no 8 where the food is amazing!

An excellent small hotel in easy walking distance of the Minster. Very friendly staff and comfortable bar area with papers, feeling like a private lounge. Room we stayed in was small but fine and the breakfast was outstanding. Ideal when, as we were, visiting children at university.
