“Charactrer, history, and location all wrapped in one nice package.”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

My family and I had a blast. The Tower is a treat to stay in. The attention to detail and overall design made for a great stay in York. I would love to come back in the summer to get the most out of the roof-top deck. The kitchen is top-notch, definitely great for a large or extended family stay.

Thank you very much for your kind words. It's great to hear you and your family had such a good time and were able to make use of the facilities.

We would be more than happy to welcome you back to the Tower, so you can experience the roof terrace on a summer's evening.

Best Regards

Nathan

Many thanks for your kind review, I am really glad to hear that you all had such a great time and that the stairs kept you fit!

I will take on board the suggestions you have made regarding the towels. Concerning your comments about the draughty top room and noise on a Saturday, as you mentioned the windows are single glazed due to the age of the building however we are having secondary glazing installed at the end of this month (November) which will hopefully solve these issues.

Once again I am delighted you all had such a great stay and I hope I can welcome you back in the future.


All the best,

Mike

It is fantastic to hear you had such a great stay at the Tower and that you found it so unique and perfect for your needs. In particular I am delighted to hear you thoroughly enjoyed the views over from the roof terrace and that the effort in getting up there was worth it!

I am sorry to hear you did occasionally get disturbed on a night. As I mentioned in a previous response we are in talks with English Heritage to have secondary glazing installed and this has now been approved so installation is expected this month (November 2014). If you do decide to stay with us again in the future the sound noise issues should be fully resolved by then.

I do hope you can stay at the Tower again in the future and many thanks for your very kind words regarding your stay.


Warmest Regards,

Mike

It is great to read that you all had such a brilliant time at the Tower and took particular pleasure in having as many meals as you could on the roof terrace! I am also delighted to hear you enjoyed the history and character of Lendal Tower as we believe this is its unique selling point (along with the roof terrace!)

As you mentioned we are in the city centre and as such there is noise, particularly on a weekend. However we are currently in the process of arranging for secondary glazing to be installed which will reduce noise levels. We are awaiting confirmation from English Heritage and the Secretary of State that these works are acceptable and so hopefully noise from the city will be greatly reduced in the very near future.

Allow me to thank you for your extremely kind words and if you ever wish to stay again we would love to have you back.


Best Regards,

Mike
