Unusual hotel, staff are lovely and hotel is lovely and clean, the collection of Laurel and Hardy memorabilia is a little off putting especially the life size Oliver Hardy in the bar !. Breakfast is good and the hotel is within walking distance of York. If you like a homely place to stay this is for you.
We were greeted at reception by a gentleman who very kindly took our bags. We were then informed that we had had our room upgraded at no extra charge which was a most pleasant surprise. We went for walk to the shops while we waited for our room as we were quite early. When we returned and was shown to our room it was nothing short of superb, very large comfy bed, amazing bathroom with double shower and bath and lots of space. We then went for a relaxing swim in the spa before checking out the whiskey lounge for a pre dinner drink. We then ordered room service which was prompt and delicious. A great night sleep was followed by a beautiful cooked breakfast to start off the day. Brilliant break and fantastic hotel, worth every penny. We shall definately be back sooner rather than later.

Hotel is situated about 15 minute walk from city centre. Enjoyed a riverside stroll into the city which was picturesque. Also very close to the Barbican which hadn't realised when booking which was a bonus as we were at a concert there.
I stayed with my sister to celebrate her 50th birthday - she had never been to York, so was an excellent base with the added bonus of the spa on site. Our small, but very comfortable room, was situated in the old stables, and while exploring the Hall itself, we were delighted to see photographs of how the transformation from the old to the new had occurred. We were told that some of the rooms were haunted, and a certain chill came over us as we took the tour! The breakfast, included in the price, was delicious; cooked with local produce. During the afternoon of our second day, we booked into the spa. The ladies were friendly, helpful and skillful. The massages certainly relaxed our weary bodies! Although we only stayed one night, we made the most of our time but definitely would have liked to have stayed longer. We will be going back again soon...
we stayed here for one night in a family room. Lovely room and two large beds, lots of facilities including tea and biscuits. Parking available for just over £10 per night- able to leave on the carpark for our whole stay and city centre within a 2-3 minute walk. will definatley stay here again!
This proved to be an extremely comfortable and relaxing hotel. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The building itself is elegant and interesting.
The food was excellent and good value for money. A highlight for us was a cream tea in front of the open fire in the morning room.
