Dear bobblehead35, Thank you for your review of the hotel I was pleased to see you had a great stay. We are constantly improving the hotel and have nearly finished painting all the bedrooms and the outside of the hotel. We will be moving on to soft furnishings next and will be changing the net curtains when we do that. As for the parking charge I will reiterate we only give free parking when you book directly on 01904 625787 or on our face book page. Having said that I would challenge anybody to fine secure parking for less than £5.00 per day especially as we allow guests to drop the car off before checking in and leave the car after checking out. I do hope to see you both again. Regards Chris

Good find!

Dear sibby50, Thank you for your review of the hotel. I have noted your good and bad points and have already changed the fan it was the motor that had burnt out. We will be changing all the TV's later this year and have already done so in many of the rooms but unfortunately not the one you stayed in. I am sorry you felt the price a little high but the rates do fluctuate on a daily basis all I can say is that we are very competitive to the rest of York and even more so when you call direct as I have put on this site many times. I do hope you will come and stay again the next time you are in York. Regards Chris

Great pool
