Our plan was a relaxing weekend break in York. The location was perfect - a 10 min walk from the station and 15 mins into the city centre. Our room was on the ground floor facing the road but we heard no noise and thick curtains kept any car lights out. The room wasn't huge but adequate for our needs. The bathroom was clean and bright and the bed sooo comfortable! I would agree with other reviewer who have suggested the lighting in the rooms could be improved, especially for those long dark winters.
As always it's the small touches that you remember - nespresso machine, complementary newspaper, decent towels and bathrobes, quality toiletries...
We ate at the hotel on our first night. There wasn't a massive choice on the menu unless you are in the mood for meat but I really enjoyed the beetroot risotto. The service was attentive and the restaurant cosy. The wine list was verging on the pretentious but if you're a wine anorak then you will love it.
Breakfast was great - a selection of toast and cereals with a menu of hot dishes prepared individually, so much better than the traditional large scale greasy overcooked buffet.
Top tip- try the Italian restaurant across the road. We were exhausted and didn't have the energy to try the city centre on a Saturday night. It was lovely, delicious food, fun and friendly family atmosphere and very welcoming.
