We found this hotel on Booking.com and liked the look of it, we were not disappointed this is a little gem of a find. On arrival we were greeted by a welcoming, warm and very helpful gentleman, who asked about our plans and gave great directions and pointers. When we returned later in the day we used the pool facility which may not be huge but was just what was needed after a day of walking and exploring. We had a drink at the cosy bar which had a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere, before going out for dinner the gentleman on duty as we left asked if we would like to borrow an umbrella for the evening. Next day the breakfast was wonderful with a good range of freshly cooked and cold options with nothing too much trouble for the staff. This may not be the most modern hotel you have stayed in but the wonderfully welcoming atmosphere, excellent staff and friendly feeling we will definitely stay here again. less
KILIMA, Manager at BEST WESTERN Kilima Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Lesley K,
Thank you for your kind review.
I am so pleased you had a wonderful time in York.
It is one of the best cities in the country to visit not only for locals but for the guests from near and far away.
I am particularly pleased to see you enjoyed the Breakfast as we have being putting a lot of work into that recently and I think the collection of specials is now wonderful. My personal breakfast would be to have the Fresh Fruit salad followed by the Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon, or maybe a few crumpets with butter.
I am also pleased to see you liked the décor in the bar area I think the boys did a great job when we refurbished it.
Take care of yourselves and don't forget to give me a call on 01904 625787 next time for rates you just cannot get anywhere else.
