This was booked for my 40th by my partner and was a very lovely surprise stay.
On entry, the hotel presents an old fashioned persona and we were inquisitive about the decor and the wedding taking place there. It's a beautiful place for a wedding/reception.
Sitting outside was pleasant. It was like being sat in the countryside with a beer. Yet, the room itself contained all the modern facilities needed.
In contrast, the two spiders that lingered in the room really didn't inspire me. It was the first time I've seen spiders in a hotel room. However, our room backed into bushes outside and I'm sure this would have influenced their choice in 'home'.
The staff were friendly and helpful, all dressed smartly whilst arranging rooms (presumably for the wedding).
The only down fall would be that the car park was limited, with no real bays to park in, just a stony area to squeeze into.
The city centre was about a 20 minute walk, but there were plenty of buses heading that way; although, it was a pleasant walk into the centre. There is also a local pub about 100 metres from the hotel where staff were friendly and the meal was pleasant.
Couples wanting a quiet retreat: great. Families wanting to explore York: maybe not. Too small for young children, in my opinion.
Would stay here again. My partner made a perfect choice. More
