Location: Shopping village nearby the happy haddock fish and chips lovely and access into York very easy
Our family had a lovely time here over the Jorvik Viking weekend the staff were very helpful with advice on places to see and things to do. There would make every effort to accommodate our boys with breakfast and the pub has some lovely specials on there black board. It's easy to get into town from here and near the shopping village !

echt engels hotel.

Posted Dec 20, 2014
Pros: De knusse inrichting en prima personeel.
Cons: Het ontbijt mag wat uitgebreider uitgestald op het buffet, je moest overal om vragen.
Location: In een klein dorp, op ongeveer 12 km. van York.
Bij aankomst hadden we gelijk de wow factor. Dat zag er aan de buitenkant al leuk uit. En eenmaal binnen waren we helemaal blij, wat een leuk hotel. Zag er knus uit, allebei de open haarden branden, wat super gezellig overkwam. Gelijk verwelkomd door de gastheer, die ons naar onze kamer bracht. Leuke, nette kamer. Heerlijke bedden.

30 mins by bus to York City Center

30 mins by bus to get to York City center, so not bad. Room is clean. Bed is comfortable. Though I can hear some sound from the other room.

York stay

Posted Dec 3, 2014
Pros: staff and food
Cons: heating and hot water
Location: the hotel was only a few miles from York so was ideal for us
The hotel itself was ok, but our room was freezing, and the shower was cold, and lots of damp in bathroom, the staff were lovely and when we complained about the cold were given a plug in radiator that soon warmed the room up. The staff and food was excellant

Needs a facelift and some character !

Posted Nov 25, 2014
Pros: Good food in the evening
Cons: Standard of rooms
Firstly the positives - lovely location in a quiet village only a few minutes drive from York and the York designer outlet. We had dinner and the food was good and plentiful although breakfast was less exciting being adequate but not by any means one of the best we have had. Now the bad bits.... The bedroom badly needed a facelift - there was a large damp patch on the ceiling and the en suite ceiling was covered in mould (very unpleasant) furniture had seen better days and we were given a heater on arrival as we were told the room would be cold in the afternoon (it was) however the heater kept tripping the electrics so had to give up on that. Overall it was ok but I would look elsewhere for my next visit to York
