Nicely appointed and convenient hotel.
The hotel was well appointed as was our room. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a superb dinner in their restaurant. However, our room turned out to be on the 5th floor with lift service only to the third floor so that we had to climb to subtantial narrow staircases. We were not told of this when reserving the room. We also had an issue with the hearing on a fairly chill night. A promised electric heater was never delivered. I would stay there again if my room were not above the third floor.

August in York
Lovely hotel next to the train station, which is very convenient. Close to restaurants, shopping, sites, all within walking distance. Hotel staff was extremely courteous, welcoming, polite, and helpful. Only negative is this hotel does not have air conditioning and leaving the window open at night allows cool air to come in, but also very noisy. We had a wonderful stay! Beautiful, historical hotel!

Beautiful old hotel, with an excellent staff
We were a group of 4 couples. The hotel is a charming old hotel but fully modernized. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The location is great. It's just outside the walls of the city so an easy walk to everything without the hassles. It's right next to the railroad station and has parking facilities for guests cars so is very convenient no matter how you arrive. The room sizes varied greatly,though all the rooms were the same price.

Great City
Loved York, would come back again. The Mumbai Lounge served the best curry I've ever eaten. Walking around the city was a joy and being here for the Queen's birthday celebrations made my trip.

Great neighborhood location
Great location, convenient to busses and Underground, close to walking along Thames for Houses of Parliament but also Tate Britain. Yet in a little quiet neighborhood with nontouristy pubs restaurants and cafes. Definitely will stay again. If you want cheaper breakfasts though walk along Rochester Row towards Victoria and look up the streets in either direction.
