I have never been to York before but my partner stays here when on business.
The room was AMAZING! I don't think I've ever slept so well in a strange bed. The hotel staff were lovely, welcoming and funny! The only reason I haven't awarded 5 stars is that the breakfast both days was such a terrible experience. The first mornings breakfast, my eggs were over-cooked, and the bacon was chewy and the fried bread was too oily, the baked beans weren't great either. So I think I only ate a quarter of my breakfast! Not enough black pudding either, one tiny wedge! The second morning, breakfast too so long to come to the table we thought they were waiting for the chicken to lay the eggs and to catch the pig to get some bacon! Another couple had been seated after us, had their breakfast, and left before ours got to the table! I think they forgot about us. When it finally arrived, 40 mins after ordering, one of the plates had to be sent back, because the scrambled eggs just didn't looked cooked enough.
If you're going to stay at this hotel, it is a lovely place to stay and sleep but go elsewhere for food, the kitchen lets this place down. less
