Everything about this hotel was great apart from one thing, the good was the atmosphere the rooms were great, wardrobe didnt shut due to angle of floor, which added to atmosphere, our photos were full of orbs, not everyones but 4 out of 6 of us.
we stayed in the shambles and one of our party experienced an apparition in the bathroom in the early hours of friday morning of the 13th... the evening bar staff were great, york is a fab place full of history would go back and would even stay at the fleece, even though the morning staff who did the breakfasts were without humour and not at all friendly, breakfast was good though, found a great indian restuarant about 10 mins walk away , but cant remember the name , in fact the best iv ever been to, all in all 9/10

Staff very helpful on arrival, we parked in the pub car park but had to wait for a rep to move her car..took 10 mins. Had a very nice lunch, piping hot food and room ready for us. Do not expect luxury it's a VERY old place!! So much character, we stayed in Lady Peckett's room with the 15th C ceiling rose..gorgeous..just a shame they have had to partition the room to put a shower and toilet in. Sloping floor (watch out going to the loo after a few drinks in the dark!) Very comfy beds. My sister stayed in St. Catherines room where there was an unpleasant smell coming from the bathroom area..sometimes smelling like sulphur..drains or ghosts?? you decide. Sometimes it was there sometimes it wasn't (LOL!) Got some reactions from the crystals we took before we headed into York. Later had a glass seance in Lady Peckett's room where we contacted the spitit of a little girl! Felt very unsettled all night like something was trying to wake me up..had the stark image of a skeleton hanging in the wardrobe mirror at some point.between waking and sleeping! Did the bedcovers get peeled gently away from my face and did someone gently stroke my cheek??? My sister stayed awake all night too frightened to sleep! Lady behind the bar grumpy in the morning asking for a spare coffee cup was like asking for the world, but breakfast was piping hot and good! Going back to try another room later in the year!
