You couldn't get a better location in York, right next to the Minster, even without that this hotel would score highly. The staff throughout the hotel are unfailingly friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I booked a 'compact double' room but got upgraded to a standard double, this was nicely decorated with all the amenities you expect: lovely bathroom, tea, coffee, fridge with water, bath robe, choice of pillow etc. Although it was at the back of the hotel, this didn't bother me as I only staying one night and was out and about shopping and exploring York. I had dinner in the restaurant and the food was excellent, I can highly recommend the white chocolate mousse, I was also given a couple of canapes to taste (a nice touch). Breakfast was equally as good, cereals, fresh fruit, full english - check out the website for the full menu there is too much to list here! They also put a note with the weather forecast for the day on your table so you know if you need an umbrella - which the hotel provides. It is these little extra touches which make this hotel special, I am only sorry I didn't stay longer - next time I will.
It is within walking distance of the station and the centre of York with everything it has to offer is on your doorstep, what more could you ask.
The hotel will store your luggage if your room isn't ready and take it to your room, check out time is 11am but again they stored my luggage until the afternoon. less
