Dear Stewart M, Thank you for your glowing review, I am so pleased that you did make full use of our valet car parking service, which we offer as car parking in York safely and to a similar price is a bit of a challenge, the down side of having a centrally located hotel, next to York Minster in a conservation area! I am blessed with an excellent team of caring staff who genuinely do want to look after all our guests to the best of their ability. Why wait until next year to revisit us, that seems such a long way of!! Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Fantastic location, fantastic staff.

13/02/2018 Stephen S,

Nothing was too much trouble, my wife is wheelchair bound with multiple sclerosis and as an older property not suited to adaption for disabled access a ramp was needed to be put in place. We were adv... more

Dear Stephen, Thank you for your fantastic email, I so pleased that you loved breakfast, and dinner in the DCH restaurant served by an attentive team. By the end of this week- 16th February 2018, after months of negotiation with York City Council we will have installed a new external ramp that will "lift" wheelchair users and passengers in to the hotel from out side the front of the hotel, the ramps will be no longer needed. We also have had a new disabled toilet built as part of our new three bedroom conversion, on the ground floor which will be easily accessible - again no ramps needed. So we look forward to your 4th visit and experiencing the new disabled access facilities. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Dear GreekFan190932, Thank you for your very nice review, we do have the best located hotel in the City, the down side of that is that we are in the middle of everything, we can never predict if their is going to be external noise, we have 26 rooms overlooking the front of the hotel, most guests do not hear a thing. We look forward to your return visit soon. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager
