I organised a birthday party for my wife. From the very first meeting with the Events manager, in the charming hotel resident's lounge, through to the party itself, everything was well above my expectations.
Every member of staff was friendly and helpful, above and beyond the call. Mark who manage the intimate panelled dinning room, coped with everything, including my two young grandsons with ease.
I am not too fond of hotel food, I would rather eat out in restaurants BUT every mouthful, on every course was pure delight and everyone said the same.
Some say that people are over taken by happy occasions and so give good reviews.If you have read any of my other reviews you will know, if you can trust what I write, and what I expect from any hotel or restaurant. Basically I think I should get what I pay for and do not crumble if I get OK cheap. But I will complain If I thing I have been over charged or under served.
At the Pavilion Hotel, I think I got more than I paid for, and for that reason, it counts as a Grey Packer Gem.
Best Western advertise "Hotels with Individuality" this normally means do not expect the uniform standards of a hotel chain. I like Hotel chains, you know what to expect.
The Pavilion Hotel is individual in a charming way. The courtyards, patios and gardens and the random rooms give the feel of a charming country house, just a short walk away from the most beautify city in England. And there is ample free car parking.
My regret about living in York, is that I'm never going to take the opportunity of staying in this hotel. But I will be back for the food! less
