I like the location of the hotel, it's a short walk along the canal into the centre and a stones throw away from Clifford's tower. Very easy to travel to, straight off the motorway and down the road. Car park felt safe and secure, as we left the car for 2 nights, £13.50 per night, which was cheaper and less hassle than a train. Plenty of eateries and take aways near by. Hotel was clean, staff were friendly, room clean and plenty of space, nice swimming pool. Overall no problems and would stay again, due to the convenience for us.

Room was reasonably clean but hairs on the bathroom wall and shower head make you wonder how COVID clean the rest of the room is. Breakfast is a waste of time, no choice bag of bits sold as a full price continental with a limited hot option that must be texted in the night before, no plates or silverware so as long as you like eating out of a bag and love crunchy nut cornflakes (only cereal given) you might be ok. Before the hotel posts anything back nowhere else in York we visited forced us to eat from wooden spoons and out of a bag so it’s not because of COVID including your evening meal which is served on a plate but be warned the menu on the website on the day we got there does not exist and is limited to only a couple of items so plan to eat somewhere that wants your business.
