A pleasant stay

Not what I thought I had booked...

Spent one night here on business, on check in seemed to wait ages whilst dealing with people in front of us, even though there was another check in booth. Finally got checked in to be greeted by a ni... more

I was so disappointed to read your review of your stay with us, and do hope that you will give us the opportunity of welcoming you back so that I can show you that we do usually get things right. The online booking options are sometimes difficult to identify which is why on check-in we do offer English breakfast at just £7.00 per person and not the a la carte price of £14.95. Our breakfast offering is extensive and offers great value for money and of course at weekends there is always demand from 8.30 - 10.00 when everyone wants a lie-in and late breakfast. Since the York Pavilion is a historic older hotel our extension of bedrooms has been limited to the width of the hotel extending through the gardens hence why the corridors are longer than I would have wished. I promise that we try very hard to ensure that the quality of service we offer is consistent seven days a week, so please do not think we favour leisure guests over corporate - you are all our favourites! Thank you for your honest review - please book directly with Matthew in Reservations at the hotel next time you are coming to York and I will be pleased to upgrade your room at the best price. Kind regards Irene Cossins

Dear John Many thanks for your review although both my Maintenance Engineer and I were surprised to learn that the WC was a regular problem! I am glad that Peter was able to correct the problem during your stay. I was really glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that my team made you feel very welcome. I hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to York on many occasions in the future - Kind regards Irene Cossins

Dear Peter, Many thanks for your lovely review and I was delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us at the York Pavilion. I was delighted that my team made you very welcome and that you loved the choices for breakfast. Kippers are my favourites at breakfast - and I always insist that we don't skimp on quality! Breakfast is the best meal of the day setting you up for a good day's exploring our beautiful City so I was glad that you enjoyed it. I am glad that the wedding was a brilliant success too! Hopefully you'll come back just to enjoy everything there is to see in York. Kind regards Irene Cossins

Deserves more than 3 stars

Many thanks for your lovely review and I was delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and that my team were friendly and made you feel very welcome. I always think that breakfast is the most important meal of the day so we work hard to ensure that there are difference choices - and particularly in the summer that our cold buffet is extensive and appealing. I quite agree about the music - jazz works in the evenings but I ask that it is smooth music in the morning - thanks for the mention - I'll be having words! Sometimes I think that we just don't hear the music as it is in the background and they are focused on customer care. Whenever you are playing golf at Fulford - which is such a brilliant course - do ring us directly to book your rooms and we'll promise great rooms at the best price. Thank you so much for your lovely review - Kind regards Irene Cossins
