"Convenient upscale hotel next to railway station"
A little pricey but worth it for the experience. Located right next to the railway station and a reasonable walk to the old town, museums and the city wall. Not a lot of choices close for eating but great for not hauling luggage etc. when traveling by train. Had a room in the 5000 series which was very nice, large and well set up. Great bed - large and firm. Staff very friendly, breakfast quite good - usual full Scottish plus extras. We usually travel more budget level but this was fun just for the experience and convenience. Impressive looking three story lobby!
Room is good for the the Uk, Clean and big. Great Fridge as well.
Only complaint was the bed although huge (King) was way too hot, and there as no sheet so you either froze or boiled. It was 7 degrees outside and we had the Air con on ALL the time
Great Fitness facilities as well the treadmills work (for a change) and the pool is great
Hotel location was fabulous. A few minutes walk to the centre but exceptionally peaceful! Bed was very comfortable, room was a little warm. Staff very friendly and helpful upon arrival and we really felt looked after. Hotel was clean and well presented in the foyer and our room. Bathroom was clean and shower was lovely and powerful!
Breakfast was served in the Tower restaurant. There was more than enough choice and staff again were there to assist any of our needs.
We used the car valet parking, we found this very handy and staff were very helpful.
We had a lovely night stay and would definitely use this hotel again.
Once enclosed by ancient fortified walls, York offers a wealth of cultural and historical sites, including York Castle, the National Railway Museum, and York Minster, a Gothic cathedral in the city center. The Shambles is a pedestrian-friendly street dating back to mediaeval ages, where it housed butcher shops. Today the scene is less gruesome, with quaint boutiques and tea rooms lining the road.
