The hotel is located in a great location with only a 5 minute walk to the shops and tourist parts of York, which is great. The downsides were the bed was uncomfortable, there was no air conditioning in the room so we had to ask for a fan as it was unbearably hot, we couldn't have the window open due...

After arriving at the hotel we were asked how we were going to settle out account (which is fine)... We advised we were paying cash and settled at that point - £225 for a one night stay. We were asked for a credit or debit card to secure any room services (again which is fine) but upon just apparently swiping...

We stayed two nights in a family room. As advertised, our child slept in a sofa bed (which she loved next to powerpoint and well away from her parents and with great WiFi), and we had a very comfy double with bedside shelves and flatscreen tv. Bathroom was perfect. Room had all the facilities we needed. The view from our...

Hotel was in a great location - 5 minute stroll to the Shambles and Minster, Guildhall was a 2 minute walk. Room was clean but small. No air conditioner in room, was given a fan to use. Window opened slightly, but room was near the garbage containers, heard clanging and banging all night. Would not stay here during warm weather....

This hotel is in a good location. A nice walk to the historic centre of York with lots of shopping along the way. The room was fine if a bit small. You could see that the bathroom had recently been renovated. It had a very nice large walk in shower. This is what I prefer but take note there was...

Reception staff were polite and helpful. Convenient parking across the road at £10/day. Room was comfortable and clean, although there was little storage space, and quite noisy if the windows left open at night. Not the cheapest and breakfast was extra. Convenient for exploring York.

I thought everything about this hotel (apart from the price) was cheap. We paid £123.00 for a room no breakfast (extra) no parking (over the road extra £10.00) The only thing in my opinion that gave it any redemption was its close proximity to York town centre Would this encourage me to return - oh no
