I stayed here last night as an adult with 3 children to visit York for the Viking festival. The hotel is easy to find, with plenty of carpark space. The lobby is large and welcoming with plenty to entertain the kids, iMac, wii, Xbox etc. The staff were a credit to the hotel and were so friendly and helpful. The...

Visited York for a birthday celebration for my husband, I mentioned this whilst booking the room after receiving an email from the hotel to ask if they could make the stay any better for us. When we checked into the room there was a birthday card and small box of chocolates. It was a lovely surprise and completely unexpected.

Stayed at the hotel for 2nights, arrived on the Thursday at 4pm to be told the room wasn't ready, had to wait until 5pm to get into the room. The hotel offered us a coffee each whilst we waited but would have preferred to be able to check straight in with tired young children. Room was simple but clean with...

Very good standard hotel for half term - pretty busy, especially in the swimming pool which is not really big enough for the size of the hotel. You may need to queue at peak times. Breakfast buffet excellent & room cleanliness top notch.

We spent 3 nights here during a visit to York. The location is great for getting into the city via several routes including a lovely walk along the river, or easy access onto the walls at Fishergate Bar. We were most impressed by the facilities provided for children. In the lobby there was a Wii and XBox along with other...

The Rooms are rather dull decor wise all beige. However they are functional, clean and are fine for one night. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast a bit limied and expensive. Great location for the Barbican and in a very quiet location.
