The Queen's Hotel York enjoys a central location on the banks of the River Ouse, well within walking distance of the wealth of attractions and amenities of this historical city. A great way to view the many sightseeing attractions is to take a York City Sightseeing Open Top Bus Tour taking in The Jorvik Viking Centre, York Castle Museum, York Art Gallery and iconic York Minster. Visitors can also hop on and off a 'Yorkboat' which stops close to the hotel and cruises to the Grand Opera House and Clifford's Tower.

Good value in good location

Reasonable price. Room large, bathroom a bit worn but OK. Staff were OK provided you could get them you could get them to look up from behind their counter they sit at. Breakfast was varied , but needed to ensure your selection was hot

central location

This place is walking distance to the train station and other places of interest, the rooms were good and I loved the bed; so very comfy. The bathroom was good with a great shower but what ruined it for me was the noise, not traffic noise but people outside, first about 9pm I head bottles as if there was a pub next to it, and it was geting a delivery, then all night was partying, yelling. It was awful. I do not know what it was or if it was usual but this was mid week and I got about 2 hours sleep.

Hotel in good location with easy

Hotel in good location with easy access to York centre. Hotels' underground car park has only 18 spaces which you need to reserve before your stay, we missed out but used the nearby (3min walk) NCP car park which cost around £15 overnight. Hotel itself is clean but the decor is looking a little tired especially in the public areas. Buffet breakfast was good, room larger than expected and the staff friendly and helpful. Overall a pretty good experience for a short stay.

This was the worst hotel I've

This was the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The mattress was the worst thing I've ever experienced. One side of it had completely collapsed and had springs coming out. Once I told staff their solution was to put blankets between the base and the mattress - why I have no idea - all that managed to do was raise the foot of the bed by 3 inches or so. Very disapointed that this hotel is recommended by [website]. Only thing going for it is the location.

Good central location. We had

Good central location. We had to park in the multi-storey but it was very close by. Hotel room reasonable but if I went again I would try to get one with a view of the river instead of a wall. Breakfast good, choice of cereals, yoghurts etc. as well as the cooked breakfast which was nice and hot. We had a three course evening meal which was very good and and a reasonable price. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Would recommen.ld if you want to be in the heart of York
