Really, what can I say about this place that isn't in the other reviews? The location was great, the staff helpful and friendly all through the hotel, the room was comfortable and the bed was big, the bar was cosy and efficient, dinner was fantastic, the room service champagne went down a storm and it was a suitably special place...

The room we were allocated was very nice and the staff welcoming on arrival. We used the valet parking which was very efficient and the staff very helpful. We enjoyed our stay in York but there were a few things which were not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. I visited the spa, which is quite small....

This has to be one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Great service, great food and big rooms. The Molton Brown products are a nice touch too. Whilst staying at the Cedar we took advantage of their great spa too. Which was very relaxing

Me and my Mum recently stayed for my birthday treat. We really wanted somewhere where we could completely indulge for one week and feel pampered. The spa was the main attraction. But when we got down there, we couldn't help but feel totally disappointed. Considering the size of the hotel the spa was tiny with barely any facilities. Not only...
