“Rip off UK”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2010

This hotel seems to market itself as a high quality establishment and it really is worse than a travel lodge.

We booked a double room and a single room online for £200.00 thinking we were going to get a really nice middle range hotel. How wrong we were!!!!!

Upon arrival we were told that all the family rooms had gone and we were shown a bedroom with five single beds in instead???!! The room was right below the bar so the noise was awful. We were then given the keys to the single room and the bed was not made up and there empty drinks on the side. When i complained the manager gave me keys to another room. Apparently the shower was really hot and the TV placed so high if you were led on the bed the colour was lost and it looked like you were looking at a negative photograph!

The carpets are worn and the decor in the rooms has been updated but by the looks of things from some sort of cheap DIY shop.

NEVER NEVER AGAIN.

If you want to pay through the roof for a youth hostel style hotel that's in the centre of Weston then this place might just be for you. However I would really avoide it, it reminded me of my youth when I stayed in budget greek 18-30 Hotels.

The York Hotel is a converted old peoples home, right on the seafront in Weston,opposite the grand pier. First impressions are great, we popped in to the bar for a drink last year,which is why I thought I,d give it a try for a night. The bar is really smart,done out in a contemporary style,with a restaurant. Unfortunately,this is where all the money seems to have been spent. The rooms were quite basic, although clean. In both our rooms the TV remotes didn,t work,& the window wouldn,t quite shut in our room. The rooms are en-suite with a shower cubicle,no baths,although there are seperate bathrooms down the corridor for this.Whether any rooms have baths,I am not aware. In our room the old electric shower was a struggle to obtain the correct temperature, in our other room,the shower was completely cold. The beds were nice & comfortable & I slept really well,& breakfast was also very nice. To sum up,it was OK for a bed for the night,but I wouldn,t stop for a whole week.
