Went with my boyfriend for a midweek 1 night break in york. Booked over the phone no probs. Location great only a 5 min walk to the town centre and there is a car park at the rear of the hotel, however you do have to move your car upon checking out. Check in was at 1p.m we were provided...

A one night stay in the four poster bedroom. Great base to explore York and a lovely walk into the centre if you take the lady's advice and cross the street to walk in by the river. Complimentary bottle of wine was a nice surprise. Clean throughout and modern bathroom - small yes but aren't the bathrooms always small in...

Lovely welcome, friendly staff, beautiful breakfast every morning. Our family room at the top was lovely and comfy beds. Fresh towels every day.Ideal situation, as bus stop across the road which would take you straight into town. You could even walk into York.

The hotel was basic but for the price we paid it was ok, apart from the drawer fronts falling off and if I turned over in bed my nose was in the bathroom, the thing that upset our group was, as we unpacked, on arrival early afternoon in our allocated rooms, my friend's daughter discovered during unpacking, that her boyfriend...

During your stay at our guest house we noted that when first checked in there was an excessive amount of noise that did not last only 2 minutes. We had another guest complain of the noise and when it continued we obviously had to notify your party that you would be asked to leave if the noise continued. The next...

My girlfriend and I stayed in this B&B for one night. The experience was overall positive. The room was clean and well equipped, although the quality of the bed/ bed clothing was below average. Some furniture looked tired. That is what I can say about our room in particular; others might be different. The common living room was great and...

When booking this hotel we first looked at the hotel website which showed modern spacious rooms however on arrival we were sadly disappointed.... The double room was very small and toilet practically right next to the bed. Aware this is a b&b however feel that it was slightly mis sold on the online pics. We were down for breakfast 1st...

Dear Sir/Ms I have checked what I believe to have been your booking and you had booked a Single/Small double. As for the comment regarding the toilet, I feel this has been exagerrated, as the room comes with an en-suite, which of course is located in a room. Breakfast this is rather concerning especially since we always cook breakfast fresh...

Clean,comfortable, well maintained, excellent location, 10 mins walk to city center, adequate car parking, good full English breakfast, friendly hosts. Nice weekend spoilt only by inconsiderate noisy female guests arriving back in the early hours (on both nights we stayed. Free wi fi.

Myself and Mrs BTEP stayed here for two nights. The room was sold as a small double but was perfectly adequate with plenty of room. The bathroom was perhaps a little small, only being the width of a shower tray. It also had what was perhaps the world's smallest sink. However, the room was lovely and clean and had all...
