I stayed here for 3 nights and overall it was a nice hotel. The breakfast was continental style which was reasonable.The hotel is very clean and tidy. You need your own transport as the hotel is not seved very well with good bus service.Wi-fi is poor in the room and digital tv reception was poor. The staff are very helpfull and friendly

My wife and I made a an unplanned visit to see our daughter at Leeds University. We found this hotel about 10 minutes away by car. It was made clear that this was a ' Work in Progress' and it certainly was. However do not let this put you of, the staff were friendly and helpful, do room was large with tea/coffee facilities and nice toiletries , bath robes and slippers. We had a en-suite (recommended) and although there are lots of bits not quite completed or not finished it was comfortable, clean and welcoming. This property has so much potential but needs a lot of money spent to bring it up to the next level. But this was great value with off road parking and a continental breakfast ( a good breakfast with choice). We would have no hesitation staying here again especially as we now know what to expect. Be clear it is not perfect but better than a Premier Inn/Travel Lodge sorte'. Ultimately you can see that they are trying to make improvements and we wish them well whilst appreciating the need to remain open whilst this work is in progress. We have paid 2 or 3 times the rate for accommodation that on the surface looks superior but ultimately the real difference has been a full English breakfast and a coat of gloss paint. Good Luck to the High Bank Hotel for the future.

Room Tip: Try to get an en-suite, shared facilities can be awkward.

I spent there 3 nights. The room was really essential, but extremely clean. I shared the bathroom with other people and, despite of it, it was always clean. The Wi-Fi is free in all the hotel and it is really fast (I watched films without problems).
It is not situated at the centre of the city, but the centre can be easily reached by bus (12/13/13A) and it takes about 10 minutes to get there. The breakfast was good and the owner was extremely kind and willing, he helped me a lot when needed. It is a very good solution for those who don't want to spend too much finding a good service at the same time.

I stayed here for three nights in february, i have never stayed before, have always used city centre. expecting to slum it on the accomodation. This was far, far from the actual experience which far exceeded expectations and better than any hotel for both comfort and service provided by the owners . I shall definately return for the chapletown carnival, this is just across the road,, Perfect still dreaming of falling asleep in that comfortable bed, The Full English Breakfast is of a very high standard and is well worth the value, i am seriously considering a return every now and then., On a more serious note, DO NOT TAKE ANY NOTICE OF REVIEWS OLDER THAN 14 MONTHS... New Owners are Brill Thanks. x x x

The High Bank Hotel has been fully refurbished to a good modern standard. by the new owners that took over the High Bank Hotel in 2013, all reviews before 2013 do not apply to us.

stayed here in 1994 what a dump then, now under new owners, rooms have all new beds ect and very warm and clean, was charged £30.00 a night, slept very well, will use this place again. Thank you, Mr P Watson, york.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor seem to be the best for 100% silence.
