Dear Adrienne S Thank you for your review following your recent four night break. The two things which you have said set us apart from the rest is our position and our staff, we are fortunate that our location is arguably the best in York but to continuously receive praise for our staff is particularly rewarding. Anna and her team in housekeeping do a great job in keeping our rooms to such a high standard, John and his team in the kitchen are always looking to impress our guests and although on this visit you only had breakfast with us our lunch and dinner options might be worth a try next time. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel in the future. Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager
