Dear Robertff, Thank you for your recent review and I am sorry that your floor boards creaked, some would say all part of the character! The hotel was three separate houses for the Clergy visiting York Minster and was turned in to a 37 bed roomed hotel some 50 years ago, so actually the old wing and the new wing are exactly the same. I am pleased that you loved our location, the views from you bedroom of York Minster, my friendly staff and a very good breakfast. I trust you enjoyed the rest of your stay in the UK and a safe trip home. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Good Food, Very Good Staff, BUT very small beds

Dear Flowingfast, Thank you for your recent review, I have tried to guess which room you occupied but cannot as assume flowing fast is your TripAdvisor screen name? All our rooms have a minimum of a standard double bed and I am once again assuming you booked a small cosy double which does have a standard double bed and are as advertised 3/4 the size of our standard double rooms. I am sorry you did not get a good nights sleep. I am not quite sure how you can advise other guests not to have a room on the third floor when in fact there are many other larger rooms, with larger beds that also have the most amazing views of York Minster on that floor. Too finish on a positive note I am pleased to read that you enjoyed our food and my excellent friendly staff and lets hope one day that you may return to the hotel. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager
