Dear Jeffrey S, Thank you for your review of the hotel. I am going to look into how I can brighten the rooms up a little as all the trees around the building are on preservation orders. I will look into getting the planning consent to prune them a bit. Don't forget to call 01904 625787 next time for a discount off the internet price and free car parking. Regards Chris

Excellent as always

Dear Latchford1, I am so pleased you keep returning to see us although I did have to look up badinage. I know you already know but for the benefit of others please pick up that phone 01904625787 to make your booking. This week alone I must have saved guests a lot of money with a discount for direct bookings and free car parking. We have seen a great uptake in guests ordering food in now we have stopped providing evening meals and with a wider choice and use of the bar or a table in the restaurant I wish I had done it years ago. One of the popular sites to order from is deliveroo which has been used by quite a few. Before you come do a search and use the hotels post code YO24 4AZ this will show you the choice available. Looking forward to your return, Chris

Absolutely Fabulous!!!!!

Great hotel within walking distance to centre

Dear sadri5531, Thank you for your great review and the five stars. I noticed you highlighted the FREE CAR PARKING this is available to all guest who book direct with us at the hotel on 01904 625787. If booking over the internet or through a third party a charge of £5.00 per day will be taken for the car park so to avoid this simply pick up that phone. You will have noticed that we have now closed the restaurant for evening dinner service this was done due to a lack of diners. I think that when people come to a city such as York they want to experience everything the city has to offer and that includes its cuisine. We do however encourage guests that do not want to venture back out to use one of the many delivery services on offer in the city and use the facilities of the restaurant to eat their meal. I look forward to your return Regards Chris
