Reason for stay was to visit family and the location was excellent for that It is close to Park and Ride, allowing us to go into York and . to also visit family close by.Enjoyed the food and staff were very pleasant.Will return sometime soon although it may not be until next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay near York City Centre"
We chose this place as a pied-a-terre while visiting York. Very convenient to the bus line and walking distance to a couple of ok pubs and a convenience store. The Fox and Roman pub has great beers and a very energetic management staff. The summer help (waitresses) are marginal at best, so be patient. The hotel is right on the bus lines in and out of […] York, and you can purchase tickets (with free transfers) on the double-decker sightseeing bus from the front desk. Show your tickets to the Coastliner bus driver (Route 840, 843, or 844 to and from the York train station) for a free lift from the bus stop by the rug store across way. The double-decker is a hop-on hop-off that tours the best sites inside of one hour, and with 6 buses, it's only 10 minutes between rides during the day. The self-serve full English breakfast at the hotel is adequate, but you will have to make it very clear to the roving wait staff if you want coffee or tea. Don't bother with the coffee - it's dismal at best. The breakfast tea was good. The bar staff is more than happy to give you a bucket of ice, since there are NO ICE MACHINES IN BRITAIN!! LOL Parking is free and easy, and the hotel is just a short drive (2 minutes) or walk (10-15 minutes) to the HUGE Tesco Extra supermarket, where you can buy anything you need. Tesco does shut down liquor and wine sales at 2100 (9 PM) so plan ahead if you want to pick up a jug to have in your room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient to use city bus to city center"
excellent location to use local transportationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable room but far from the city"
The hotel was hard to get to by public transportation but my room was very comfortable. It was facing trees and bathroom had a deep tab. One thing I did not impressed was their food services in the dining room. I choose from the menu a sea-bass dish but came out to be a trout. When I mentioned, the waitress insisted it was a sea-bass. I am a fish eater […] and almost everyone (I think) can tell the difference between sea-bass and trout. She took back to the kitchen and brought me salmon dish; it was salmon. I disappointed the way she insisted that was sea-bass like she could fool me. Anyway I did not eat there any more time I was there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great Hotel for Visiting Historic York"
A great business Hotel, that was quiet and with excellent helpful front desk staff. It is on main road in to the town centre. The bed was a little bit too soft for my bad back, but everything else was excellent. The food in the restaurant downstairs was amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok Hotel..not really close to Old York"
This hotel is a 1 1/2 miles from the bridge that you cross to enter the old city of York. I thought from the reviews that it might be closer. For older people who do not want to walk that distance, there is a city bus stop nearby. The neigborhood is fine, but there was only one restaurant/pub and one take-out place near the hotel. Breakfast was outrageously […] priced as was use of the lobby computer. ..3 pounds for 15 minutes. Unfortunately, I was forced to puchase a 7 pound voucher for 40 minutes because they had no more 3 pound vouchers. As it turned out, I needed 40 minutes because the computer was so imcredibly slow. Just as I was completing my buisiness, I was bumped off the internet. After my husband complained strongly at the desk, the night manager apologized and refunded our money. Other than the walls being a little thin, it was a good hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for no frills city break"
Stayed 1 night for city break. It was fine, rooms were clean and equipped with all the essentials but bathroom was a bit tired looking. It was 10 mins from York train station on no 4 bus (get off 2 stops after York race course as bus does not pass front of hotel). It was what I would expect from a Holiday Inn but a bit pricey for what was a basic room, […] obviously cashing in on popularity of it's location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient For Racecourse and Conferences"
Easy check-in. Helpful Staff. Room by stairs was slightly noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We would definitely go back to this hotel. Really good in everyway. We had a 6 month old baby with us and he had a great time at the hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the staff were friendly, room and bed was a good size,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location and service"
The hotel was very comfortable and well situated for the centre of York (£8 into town and £6 back by taxi). The only down side was our room had a door to the adjacent room and this had little noise deadening effects - loud conversations, ignored telephone alarms in the morning and extended use of the hair dryer at 1030pm and 7 am - not a major problem, […] but it scrambled the tv signal! Hopefully my snoring didn't disturb our neighbours! Otherwise an excellent stay, and we would certainly use the hotel again, perhaps avoiding that room! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for a family stay"
The hotel looks a little dated from the outside and the rooms need a little tlc but we could not fault the customer service and our stay was still comfortable. Everyone was very helpful and tried very hard to make our stay positive. Our 5 year old was well catered for food-wise and there were also games available to entertain him in the restaurant so […] he did not annoy anyone. The restaurant is very spacious and well laid out and the pancake machine was a big hit ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good area for touring York,easy access to transport,hotel staff extremeley helpfull.Food excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel has a good location on the edge of the city. Plenty of space in the restaurant. The room was clean and tidy but the bathroom needed a make-over. It was clean but needed new equipment. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent facilities with good location"
The room is clean with excellent facilities including iron and ironing board. Good and quiet location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Big bed, small room"
I enjoyed visiting York and the hotel was pleasantly located. The staff were fine although I never felt like it really mattered I was there [although it might have been due to it being the York races so a bit busy]. The room was called 'executive' but really it was quite small and not value for money with a pokey bathroom.The breakfast was GREAT though […] and I'd love to repeatedly go back just for their breakfast. So room wasn't great but the food was! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Lovely hotel, not too fat out of town, nice area. Clean room, good service, no complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is now very tired and needs complete redecoration. A nice reminder of the early 90s though :pGenuine Expedia guest review
We were unfortunate enough to visit York during the York races, but got upgraded to an executive room by a nice receptionist so that we and our 7 month old daughter could avoid being disturbedGenuine Expedia guest review

"Fantastic neighbourhood and service"
N/AGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was slightly far from the city centre, a taxi would cost about £6, but it is about a mile from micklegate, so not too far if you want to start the day from there. Good service, wouldnt say excellent though. But staff was welcoming and room service was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel for the price. Great location right by the racecourse and about half an hour walk into york centre. Friendly staff and good sized rooms with huge beds. Massive choice at breakfast and nice bar area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel for a weekend away."
the Hotel was easy to find and there was plenty of parking for us.The reception staff were friendly and we were checked in in no time at all. Our room was on the first floor and over looked the car park... It was a quiet room which suited us fine. The room was nice but could have been a little cleaner to be honest. The shower was powerful and the towels […] were white and clean... As was the bedding too. There was a sofa in our room which was nice and unexpected. It was a comfy bed and the pillows were firm... just as we like them. Was a great room for the money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A bit more concentration from staff. Almost there."
Nice hotel. Stayed 1 night visiting family in York. No problem with hotel. Good location, friendly Staff and we probably Would stay again. Only couple of gripes really would b 1 - when we booked we requested a travel cot in the room, and I even rang the week before to comfirm this and was told there would b a travel cot in the room. When we arrived […] upon check in I asked again and was told there was. When we got in2 our room it turned out to be a sofa bed ??! The staff were great and sorted it within minutes, but I'd checked 3 times before hand so that's a poor effort in my view. 2 - need more staff on the bar. Twice I had to go wandering about for some1 to come and serve me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, friendly staff."
We were visiting York on a short trip. The hotel was about a mile from the town centre but a good location for the race course. We arrived by car and used the free parking. We ate in the restaurant and found it to be reasonably priced. Our meals were excellent and exceeded our expectations. Well prepared and served by friendly and helpful waitresses. […] Reception staff also very nice and keen to help. Rooms were clean and functional. Only dissapointment was the Wifi which was a bit of a rip off - £5.95 for 4 hours. It suited our needs on this trip and we would go back the next time were in York. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"tatty and not worth the money"
Hotel adequate but no more, decor and fittings tired and well in need of an update. Not particularly cheap and only worth about half tie £85 we paid for 1 nite and that did not include breakfast. Disappointing.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely hotel brilliant helpful staff very knowledgeable and helpful only down side we as very noisy guests in room 124 and across the corridor but the hotel can't help inconsiderate guests . lovely pub across the road to eat in and excellent bus service into York. Can walk to town if energetic not too far at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good place for a weekend break."
The hotel is very comfortable and conveniently situated.Genuine Expedia guest review
Constant noise in the corridoors early hours in the morning on both nights of our stay, also the distance from York city center is very far. Staff polite, room clean but will pay the extra to stay somewhere else next time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonably priced and comfortable"
I booked through Expedia and specifically looked for triple rooms, Holiday Inn came up so I booked them, though when the window opened on their page it came up as a twin room for 2 adults even though I selected 1 adult and 2 children. When we got to the hotel I mentioned the problem at booking and they put in a camp style bed for my youngest. AFter […] sleeping in it she told me it was very uncomfortable and the springs were sticking up. I ideally wanted 3 proper beds which is what I looked for when choosing a hotel as my youngest has had to sleep on tiny temporary beds in the past and as she is now 11 I didn;t think it fair to keep subjecting her to that. But never mind :-( The rest of the hotel stay was fine and I would recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"An excellent stay"

"Great hotel, too far from city centre"
Lovely hotel, staff fantastic and friendly. Unfortunately the hotel was approx 35minute walk into town, which is great in the summer, but not so great when its cold and wet. The room was clean and tidy but could do with a bit of an update. Room serviced every. Fantastic pubs and convenience store nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not happy about the price of breakfast.Also I have written to General Manager regarding a bottle of wine purchased at the bar for £18.95.on Sunday evening which when opened when we got back home was vinegary and undrinkable!!Will not be staying here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was clean, comfortable and quiet despite being on a ground floor. The breakfast was also very good with quick and attentive service. The staff were very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

A good, clean and comfortable hotel. A little out of town, £7 by taxi.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Something for everyone at this hotel"
The Staff at this hotel are so cheerful and helpful they make the stay so very pleasent. The hotel is very clean and well looked after with good car parking so you can leave your car and travel to the centre of York by foot or bus or taxi both of which are a very resonable cost. We will certainly use this hotel againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly, clean Hotel"
