We arrived at 9.20pm on Sunday evening, ready for our vicar's consecration as the 1st woman bishop in York Minster the following morning. It had been a busy day and we arrived a bit weary and hungry.

Fantastic Location, Well looked after by the staff who are friendly and have great knowledge of the area. Even restaurant advice if required, Which was because due to works going on there was no food available in the cafe / bar or restaurant until the day of our departure. This was very dissapointing. So the only meal we had was...

Took my wife here for our anniversary, they have valet parking which is great, hotel staff are very helpful and the location is excellent, the hotel rooms themselves are starting to look a little worn around the edges but that would be my only negative, the breakfast was delicious and we both enjoyed the weekend in York.
