We chose the hotel based on previous tripadvisor reviews and were extremely pleased with our six day stay. The hotel was comfortable and the staff were friendly and efficient with nothing seeming too much trouble for them. It was great to stay in an English hotel that was able to provide gluten-free choices at every meal. Our room faced the sea and despite strong winds on some days (which provided dramatic seascapes) the room was pleasantly warm throughout our holiday. We both had massages at the hotel spa the quality of which was very good. Also, impressed by the price of after dinner drinks in the bar. This is often an area where a hotel may load the bill somewhat. Imagine my surprise to be charged only £5.40 for two brandies. My only reservation about the facilities/service at The Royal York relates to the hotel car park. It is too small for the size of the hotel and for our first night, when we arrived late in the day, we had to leave the car in the local authority car park behind the hotel. On subsequent days we had no problems, with the staff parking the car for us. Overall, a very relaxed and comfortable stay. We shall certainly go back.
