Excellent4.0 / 5
Great for families with children 2-8 years old
Hotel was outside the main city making for a nice quiet room. The room was large and they already set up the 2 beds for our kids (2 and 4) on the ground so we didn't have to worry about the younger one falling out of bed. The breakfast was good and worth the small charge. Kids eat free so it was a great deal for our small family. They have a great playground outside and an awesome indoor play place that kept our children entertained while we waited for museums and attractions to open in York (a 30 to 40 minute drive). I gave it a 4 because the room was a little rundown and needed some repairs. Great value for the money.

Convenient and economical
Mixed reviews on the comfort of the beds...I liked them, my wife thought they were too hard. Hotel was short drive to local restaurants and to York for some historic sights. Hotel staff extremely helpful and went out of their way to find some specific restaurant fare we were trying to locate.

Poor1.0 / 5
We had two rooms 3 & 5, both rooms were very dirty, especially the bathrooms, not only dirty but in need of repair. The sink in room 5 had a bad crack in the sink, which my husband cut himself on and is now on antibiotic cream. The baths have shampoo attached to the side of the bath, and although seems a great idea, it was leaking so made the bath dangerous. We are very disappointed, we chose this hotel as we had been away from the area for 11 years and this has been built since we have been away....unfortunately it is looking very tired and run down.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Fantastic, than I expected, given the reviews
I must admit this hotel didn't have the best reviews, but I booked as I wasn't able to find an alternative. I was very impressed with the Reception Service, the room was clean, I had a suite, and it was huge. The bar / restaurant service was good, (just one unhappy person behind the bar) the others were very helpful while I was choosing dinner and swapping food about. Overall stay was excellent, despite the dodgy reviews. But people only write bad reviews, rare to find positive ones.
