Charming wedding venue

25/09/2016 CurlyBlue67, Norwich, United Kingdom

We stayed 2 nights for my son's wedding. The venue has character and the courtyards are very pretty. The food is outstanding, and the wedding planning service was very efficient. The staff were fri... more

Irene C, Owner at BEST WESTERN York Pavilion Hotel, responded to this review
Many thanks for the lovely review and I was delighted that you enjoyed your son's wedding reception here recently. I have enjoyed sharing your review with my team, particularly the Events team and Chef! When you made your booking maybe you didn't specify the age of your daughter, as our extra beds are very much designed for the under 12's. We don't have triple rooms in the hotel so I am sorry if your daughter didn't have a comfortable night's sleep. I hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back on many occasions in the future - Kind regards Irene Cossins Owner

Room furnishings in need of a little TLC

25/09/2016 dceUk, UK

Stayed 4 nights in a good size room facing the main road. The double glazing and extra thick curtains kept the traffic noise at bay. In fact the room was very quiet even though the hotel was full. So ... more

Many thanks for your review and I was delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. I take your comments to heart about the soft furnishings as a hotel is a bit like the Forth Road Bridge - you never finish! Unfortunately the towel rail doesn't operate separately to the heating but we are always happy to change towels on a daily basis - if you had left them in the bath they would have been changed and you could have enjoyed crisp dry towels daily. We offer specials on a daily basis to complement the full menu which gives a wider choice of daily dishes - if guests prepay for dinner at £20.00 per person, then there is an allowance of £25.00 per person ... which would have bought your dining budget nearer to what you expected. Next time hopefully! We look forward to welcoming you back on many occasions in the future - just call Matthew to book your room directly with the hotel and I promise a great room at the best price Kind regards Irene Cossins Owner

Dear Tanya, WOW! Many thanks for your wonderful review and I was delighted that your son's wedding day was just perfect. I have nothing left to add - perfection is just fine! I have shared your lovely comments with all my team and given Mark and the Chef a great pat on the back! We look forward to welcoming you back for many celebrations in the future - Kind regards Irene Cossins Owner

Weekend Away

18/09/2016 Carey H,

Arrived around 9:15pm Friday night, car park was virtually full. No lines so many cars parked taking up 2 spaces. However, after signing in, they were kind enough to find us a spot. Car off loaded and... more

Dear Carey - Many thanks for your lovely review and I was delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward very much to welcoming you back. I quite agree with you about the reception windows - unfortunately they are part of the original house and cannot be changed .... they are protected. It is a shame as I always think it looks like an old-fashioned train booking office! It makes it difficult for the reception team too so thanks for your sympathy! Many thanks - we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Kind regards Irene Cossins Owner ... ++

Let down by the dining

14/09/2016 141tim, Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom

I'd stayed here previously and found it thoroughly charming and pleasant and had a exceptional meal, but on this occasion I was unlucky to find the small restaurant booked up with large parties, no me... more

Owner Response
Irene C, Owner at BEST WESTERN York Pavilion Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Tim, Many thanks for completing your review although of course I was disappointed that you didn't find the warm welcome that you have enjoyed with us previously. We value every guest who stays with us, but obviously when there are large parties they can tend to take over the hotel which makes it difficult for the individual traveller. When next you come to stay do book direct with Matthew and I'll make sure he gives you a lovely room at the best price and we book a table in the restaurant not the bar for dinner. I'm sorry that I can't do anything about the car parking however - luckily for us there is no charge for on-street parking in the area. Come back soon and let us redeem ourselves - Kind regards Irene Cossins
