I stayed here early January 2017 and the hotel was very quiet. We waited in reception a while before anybody noticed we were there and no sign telling us that it was reception so perhaps this could be a useful tip. The hotel room was very clean and the bed was huge and very comfortable. The lady who showed us...

Good location but the evening reception chap was dismissive, unfriendly and didn't give us any information about our stay. The room was cold and wasn't cleaned during our stay. The bar was a fridge in reception. Overall, poor but the price was reasonable and it was near to town

The Jorvik Hotel is centrally placed opposite the beautiful museum gardens. It has friendly helpful staff and is working hard to improve. It was clean, comfortable and excellent value for money. We would definitely use it for future visits.

The Hotel is located across the park from the main area of the city. During the winter the park closes at 6pm thus involving a fair walk around it if you have plans for the evening. The staff are excellent; friendly and helpful but please be aware that the check-in at 2pm is adhered to. Your bags will, however, be...

Dear Mr Stead As you will be aware I was a guest at your hotel last weekend and I am afraid to say it was not the relaxing nor enjoyable experience I was expecting.

Builders were replastering walls in the public areas when we arrived and noisy work started above our room before 8.30am the next day. I feel we should have been warned that work was planned when we booked so that we could have gone elsewhere, Room 5 was cold (sash windows are loose) and the bed was uncomfortable. We were moved...

Stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend. Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfy bed and wi fi in room. Lovely full English breakfast. They also provided soya milk at breakfast which I had requested. Location great for exploring and not far from railway station. The only reason I didn't give it 5 was due to the refurbishment going on...
