Weekend visit

If you stay at this hotel, avoid staying in any of the rooms at the front of the building, as the noise level prevents a decent nights sleep due to the poor quality sash windows/lack of double glazing... more

Thank you for choosing to stay with us whilst visiting York I'm sorry to hear your stay was let down by noise levels preventing you getting a decent nights sleep Due to our city centre location guests can expect to hear some passing by noise at times and as we are a listed building installing double glazing unfortunately isn't an option for us. If any guests feel this will be an issue during their stay we do recommend our rooms higher up the building or towards the back of the building as these tend to be quieter. I hope you still managed to enjoy your time with us in York and would return again in the future. Please contact our central reservations direct to discuss room options so we can help you find the perfect one Thank you Laura

Ok but not outstanding

The room was small and noisy. The noise was outside of the hotels controlled but loud enough to ruin sleep. The foot was acceptable but no more. The breakfast though served to the table was certain... more
