If you want York City centre this has to be a wise choice, overlooking the Minster, everything on the door step, wide choices of rooms, very attentive staff, very clean throughout, however at £300 per night for a weekend deluxe room I expected so much more, this is dearer than London, Edinburgh and Paris for something similar, the room was nice, spacious, stylish and comfortable and had this had been a more realistic £150 per night I would have happily returned, probably also would have considered 5 stars, at these prices I will be looking elsewhere. Only other complaint and not the fault of the hotel it is very central everyone walks past the front and there was lots of noise from the taxi rank opposite beyond 4am, if you can secure a deal by all means go and have a look but for a premium last minute weekend I would doubt it has what it takes. less

Many thanks for leaving a review after your recent stay.
From your comments it seems that all aspects of your stay were enjoyable except the price. I am happy that we did deliver on the customer service side of things and the quality of the rooms and the hotel. Regarding the price there are factors which will affect the price such as, time of year - if there are any events going on in York this may alter the price. When the booking was made - If the room is booked late this could influence the price too depending on demand. these factors in all honesty will be the same at any hotel and our prices always reflect the current market in York. We have the same room in a couple of months going for a third of that price on some days. I will be sure to mention this to our reservation team to monitor this to ensure we remain competitive and I do hope you consider using us again if the price is right.
