Overpriced

We visited York for a friend's birthday so needed a central hotel. This hotel offered a good location but that's where it ends. The price we paid for 1 night £189 we expected a bit of quality. All we got was a Premier Inn equivalent. The only difference was a Premier Inn would have been half the price! Unless this hotel is offered for under £90 I wouldn't bother. Definitely won't be wasting our money here again.

Last weekend in July

The staff were all excellent. Very helpful and very friendly. The room was ok, clean and had most of what you would expect. My gripe is that I had to pay over £150 for a night in a room with no air conditioning on what turned out to be one of the hottest nights of the year. What made this sweltering room worse was that the windows only partially opened allowing no air flow into the room and outside the window was the noisy air conditioning unit for the hotel reception. The dilemma was try to sleep with the noise or shut the window and roast! At those prices I expect air con in the room. Location is great

Noisy room position

Very good, comfortable BUT I was in a front room 1st floor and the traffic noisewas horrendous despite double glazing. Ask for a room atthe back and it would be fine.

Easy to find using Sat Nav. Good location for walking in to city center areas. Modern style hotel with clean modern rooms. Only downside is that you have to pay for parking £10/night, which is across the road from the hotel.

The rooms need a bit of TLC

On first arriving at this hotel we got a great first impression, reception and bar is very smart... It's a shame this doesn't stretch to the bedrooms. We couldn't check in because they were doing their final checks... Not sure what they were checking as the room was for 2 people yet they only left 1 towel. On entering the room it was freezing, with only a small radiator tucked down the side of the bed to heat it up, maybe some curtains would help lock in the heat? And block out the noisy trolleys that kept going past the window (we were on the ground floor) The bed wasn't a double, it was 2 single mattresses pushed together so if you rolled in the middle you got trapped in a delve, every time you moved it creaked, it was most uncomfortable, probably the worst bed we have slept in. Overall the staff were friendly and allowed us to store our luggage after checking out which was great. The room was clean, basic but not worth it if you're paying full rate. The hotel overall is ok, the rooms just need some TLC
