Overall, this hotel is great. The only problem was the lack of air conditioning, certainly not a concern most of the year, but something to know if you are traveling in the summer.... The breakfast buffet was EXCELLENT!
Very helpful staff but quite inexperienced and no visible management to guide the.
Very comfortable room and happy with my stay. Hotel was in very good condition and no problems at all.
We enjoyed our stay however we found a few things that could be better. We went out and explored York on 2 out of 3 days. When we returned late in the afternoon our room had not been cleaned so we had to ask for it to be done. We also found that cleaning staff were extremely noisy as we were disturbed ...
My Husband and I loved our stay here. We paid a bit extra for the king room overlooking the River Ouse and the town of York. We could see the Minster from our room. Excellent accommodations, wonderful breakfast buffet. There is also a small bar that serves lunch or a nice afternoon coffee. The staff ...

North Yorkshire is one of England's most historically significant counties, as well as being one of its most beautiful. Home to several of the United Kingdom's best-known National Parks, it's the great outdoors that lures in most of the county's visitors. A good chunk also come for the historical attractions, making the City of York the country's second most visited city. Clifford's Tower sits at the heart of the city, a proud centrepiece around which the historic city of York goes about its daily business. Thanks to its central location, it's flanked by numerous spectacular hotels and guesthouses.
The original structure to be built on this famous mound was constructed by William the Conqueror in 1086. Sadly, the timber structure burned down in a horrific massacre a century later. The current building was erected shortly after as the keep of York Castle. The tower measures 50 feet in height and around 200ft in diameter. Its design is distinctly Norman.
Set atop a prominent hill, Clifford's Tower makes an excellent place to begin your visit to the historic City of York. The site offers panoramic views out across Old York, allowing visitors to survey the city's landmarks and attractions from up high. A new viewing platform is being fitted by English Heritage, making taking it all in that bit easier.
York is home to some of the finest hotels in North Yorkshire and Clifford's Tower offers easy access to all of them, from spa hotels to quaint old inns and guesthouses.
Visitors seeking a hint of luxury will head straight for the Grand Hotel and Spa, on Station Rise. Behind the opulent façade, the hotel boasts an impressive range of facilities, ranging from an indoor swimming pool and sauna to a fully-featured business centre.
There are plenty of affordable, modest options around York, making it an accessible holiday destination for people of all ages. The Fort Boutique Hostel is a smart choice, less than half a mile from Clifford's Tower. The two-star hostel offers guests free WiFi and has its own restaurant and bar.
