We had a fab night away in York and stayed at the Bootham Tavern. All the staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. Everything had been refurbished and looked great. The hotel had some nice touches like USB chargers, but the favourite bits were the power shower and very comfy bed. We was a bit worried that...

Its cheaper than others. You can use their kitchen for making food if you stay longer. It is near to city center only 5 minutes walk. A lots of restaurants around this hotel. There are one Chinese take away and one Japanese (operated by Chinese) restaurants.

I stayed here midweek and didn't experience any noise problems. I thought the staff were friendly and efficient (I'd forgotten to pack a hair dryer and the barman was really helpful and found me one to borrow), the room was clean and tidy. Great value for money but be aware there isn't a breakfast served.

Cheap, quite, tidy what more could you ask for! 10/10. Pool booze and music, a lovely sleep and a great time had by all. the bad reviews on here are clearly from people who dont like a good time. its a busy, lively establishment, if you want a quiet night dont stay in a pub!! Thanks for the great time!

This place is very cheap, 50 pounds (2 people per night). The problem is that they don't offer any kind of service and the place is old and not very clean! They want you to pay before take the room and now I understand why.
