Dear Kelsea41, Thank you for your lovely review of the hotel I will pass your comments on to all the staff. We will soon be starting with our extension to the hotel adding 16 new bedrooms. We will of course remain open as the work is all at the rear of the hotel. Once complete we will be refurbishing all existing bedrooms and bathrooms so we will as I hope you will be looking forward to your next stay. During the building of the extension we will have a restricted car parking but as a lot of guest come on the train hopefully this will not cause too much of a problem. Regards Chris Betteridge Hotel Manager

Perfect for York

We had 2 nights here before our train trip on the NMYR. Our twin room was quiet even being on the ground floor next to the stairs. Room was clean although on day 2 our bed hadn't been made up properly... more

Dear fsnet, Thank you for your review of the hotel. May I personally apologise on behalf of the housekeeping team for not quite getting your room correct. I am pleased to see that in the main you enjoyed your stay but I will be looking into the details you have raised. We have indeed a new owner and we will be making a few changes this year both large and small. I look forward to welcoming you on your return but until then wish you and yours all the best for 2020 and beyond. Regards Chris Betteridge Hotel Manager

Dear jual47, Thank you for your comments on the staff I will pass them on. I will be taking a look at breakfast which has served us well for years but maybe needs updating. I think guests trends and tastes are changing and although we have the full English along with everything from Fresh fruit salad to Smoked Salmon bagels and pancakes with banana and syrup ect. I think I will take a couple of staff out for breakfast as a treat and see what others are up to. Please give the hotel a call on 01904625787 next visit for a small discount. Regards Chris

Why stay anywhere else? Perfect!

We have stayed at the Kilima previously so we knew it was perfectly located for the markets, etc, just a 15 minute walk to town. On the way to town, you pass lots of little quirky pubs, cafes, restaur... more

Dear crazydiamond, Thank you for your continued support of the hotel. I am sorry the alarms went of the only thing we can put it down to was a spider getting in the detector in the plant room. We had only had the whole building checked and tested for its annual inspection two week previous. I myself was on vacation when it happened but I was so pleased to see my staff not taking chances with life and evacuating the building, calling the brigade and making sure they knew exactly what had caused the alarm. I would also like to thank with the exception of one, all the guests for their support of the staff during a difficult time. Regards Chris Betteridge Hotel Manager
