Visiting York for two days

26/04/2017 nicnack21, Dubai

The Hotel has a great location, 10 minutes walk from the train station and 30 seconds from York Minster! Hotel staff were very pleasant, room was a nice size and breakfast was very good. No complaints... more

Dear Karen H, Thank you for such a glowing review, I am so pleased that my team were all 10 out 10 and i will of course pass on your very kind comments about Steven and Frank, who as you quoted are two of my funniest yet very helpful and professional members of our team. The down side of having the best location in the city centre of any hotel in York, especially room 63 overlooking the Minster is that there can be City Centre noise. Sorry if this inconvenienced you but I am sure that view made up for it? Lets hope you do stay with us again, and if you want a quieter room then please ask and we can allocate you a rear facing room overlooking the gardens of our neighbouring property's. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager
