Stayed here with family for a 3 night stay.
Our room was spacious and had good bit of space even with travel cot, of which hotel provided. Power shower over bath was fantastic and had removable hose and towels large and adequate. Bath filled up quickly and instant hot water. Small shower gel & shampoo toiletries provided 1st night. Beds and pillows were comfy. Flatscreen tv has freeview. Wifi worked fine in the room. There's kettle & 1 x hot chocolate/4 x pg tips teabags & 4 x nestle coffee sachets (2 decaf) & 2 packs of biscuits in room.
My only one gripe was the size of the curtains (see photo) which let in light so early in morning - good idea would be bigger curtains and a removable Velcro blackout blind for guests staying with children or if they like a dark room.
There was a wedding party on 2 separate nights we stayed this wasn't a real bother apart from one night couldn't park in hotel car park and another which no fault of the hotel were guests in room next door arguing (walls pretty thin) and slamming doors several times which unfortunately woke up our baby around 10pm.
Staff throughout hotel are friendly.
Best bit was breakfast - you give room number and then seated at table then there was small room to go help yourself to as much of your choice of following : croissants, pan au chocolate, mini chocolate/plain muffins, ham/cheese, different homemade compotes (highly recommend spiced peach one), fresh fruit salads, choice of cereals, natural yoghurt, selection of walnuts/sultanas/dried apricots/prunes/etc, toast with different preserves/marmite/Nutella.
Choice of drinks - Apple juice, orange juice, homemade iced tea (must try it's lovely) & water. Also tea/coffee.
On table menu to order was full English breakfast: bacon, sausage, black pudding, hash brown, beans, mushrooms, tomato, & choice of eggs
You could pick and chose which bits you wanted.
There was also bacon sandwich & omelettes to order.
I had cooked breakfast 3 days and each time delicious. also recommend the pan au chocolate & fresh fruit salad & yummy compote.
It's priced at £14.99 per person so if you can pay bit more to be included when bookroom it's well worth it. It's what would be my reason for choosing this hotel over another in the area. Have been coming to York since child so experienced many hotels over years.
I didn't eat lunch or evening meal in hotel but can highly recommend The Plough down the road from hotel on opposite side come out of hotel turn left, food was homemade and yummy.
There's Aldi not far down road come out of hotel turn right opposite side road.
This hotel was ideal to explore York it's short distance in car to city centre or there's bus stop located by hotel, also close distance to York racecourse. Can also walk into town if fancy half hour stroll passing along river.
I'd definitely stay here again and can recommend, just next time I'd probably bring large sheet to put over curtains to block light. less
