"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!
Pretty hotel in a nice area of York, simple walk from town centre or railway station. Room we were in small but clean and very well decorated. Slightly cheap pillows but great shower! Given wrong price my desk for breakfast and breakfast bit dear at 9.95 but Croissants were the best outside France. Nice restaurant staff Would like to try big rooms!
We stayed in a courtyard room for 4 nights. From check-in to check-out the staff and service were 5 star. The property is lovely and the gardens were gorgeous. We enjoyed room service and also ate in the dining room several times and found the service and quality of food to be phenomenal. This is truly an amazing hotel.
Expedia showed this place with great room rates a short drive away from extravagant pricing in York. Fortunately, we had a rental car which made commuting from a York car park to this hotel worthwhile.
For whatever reason, I don't like that when booking for 2 people (myself and my father) that the beds are directly next to one another, but we were able to separate the beds so that we weren't turning over on one another.
"Good hotel, great location, super efficient staff"
Had a great stay. Staff really welcoming and very efficient. Paid for deluxe room as it had a view of the castle. Nice and unexpected that it included a welcome basket (wine, snacks, fruit and water). Room comfortable and plenty of space. Only reason not a 4 was there was limited storage if you had two people and wanted to stay more than a night and the shower was over the bath (which we knew up front so not a complaint just a preference). Very clean and lots of little welcoming touches. Staff really helpful - put our bags in the car when we checked out so we could leave it all in the underground secure car park while sightseeing. Location is great - within walking distance of all the main sights and the town centre for restaurants. Breakfast was good - the standard we've had at other Hiltons - good choice of cooked food, pastries, cold meats and cheese, fruit juices and hot drinks etc. - also someone on hand to make fresh eggs if you wanted. Couldn't fault it. Staff very cheerful in the restaurant and also efficient and friendly.
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.
