Reviewed 14 July 2013

I have stayed in a variety of accommodation for work and pleasure, ranging from tents, youth hostels, travel lodges and hotels. I frequently have weekend breaks and am happy to say I have never have had any problems. until now. I made a booking for this place via iyork and everything seemed fine, although it did say it was a provisional booking. So I phoned up a few days later to confirm and got told it was okay and he put down the phone before I had a chance to ask anymore questions. I was taken aback but assumed he must have been busy. However, there was no booking for me and I was stuck having to get last minute accommodation after arriving - since this was the weekend of the York races most places were fully booked and everywhere else was very expensive! This was not a good start of my holiday! I will be coming down to York frequently for my work and this place will definitely not be getting my custom!!!

SIr

we are very disappointed in your review not only is it fictional but it seems to me you have a personal problem first of all you booked with iyork not with us direct so if they mess up your booking this is not our fault it did say provisional booking so why did you turn up knowing its not a live booking. you did not call us at all to confirm anything, if you did we would of told you that its a provisional booking and that you do not have a room booked. i think you was finding it difficult to book anywhere so you thought you could pull the wool over our eyes and just turn up thinking we may give you a room thinking its our fault well no sorry,

please do not book with i no york they have done this a few times and please be aware for future reference that provisional does not mean live booking if you want you can take this up with iyork but as the hotel goes its out of our control

Great little guest house near the Minster and Uni. Clean, rooms and ensuite small but adequate. Nice decor and fantastic breakfast. People very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back. Steep stairs with some traffic noise but still slept soundly.

Room Tip: Book early x

After finding this place on the Internet it looked very nice...I think the pictures had been taken when it was very good light!
I booked this for one night as I had an interview the next day at York St. John university. The room was crammed, with a tiny bathroom. It was clean and the bed was comfy but for a double room it was very small.
I also kept hearing very strange noises throughout the evening, which appeared to be some sort of rattling noise. Now I sleep with earplugs at night so thankfully this didn't keep me up but for someone that doesn't would this strange noise have kept them up?
I was also told on the phone that I would be charged £50 for the night and was then charged £55 for the room...and I have no idea why! The owner spoke to me very fast so made it hard to understand him.
I wasn't allowed breakfast before 8am when I had a taxi at 8.20 to get me to this interview on time! Luckily I had enough time to get a cooked breakfast. I was also rushed out of the place very quickly when it was time for me to go.
Overall the service was okay but I wouldn't stay here again.

Booked guest house throught lateroom because of facilities . Park view facilities page on laterooms.com states they have at the guest house 1) a bar 2) a restaurant 3) air conditioning 4) lounge menu 5) 24 hour reception 6) mountain bike hire 7) smoking rooms 8) private dining services 9) car park.. All total lies apart from car park. Laterooms confirm client responsible for site content not them . Please will the management respond with explanation for deliberate misrepresentation before we report them to trading standards

Room Tip: stay elsewhere

We stayed here for a weekend and I have to say I was quite impressed. Good value for money, short walk into the centre and room very clean although en suite a little snug! Breakfast was ok, in honesty not the best quality ingredients but was pleasant enough. The two chaps who ran it could not do enough for you and were very accomodating. My only criticism was not enough hot water for two showers when getting ready to go out. Would stay here again when next in York.
