Astley house - York
Posted Nov 29, 2011 on Hotels
A poor B & B for the price. I work touring with theatre so know what I'm talking about. The room although described as a single would not have accomodated a larger man than me and I'm only 5'7". The en-suite was a cupboard and the walls were paper thin so when anyone in the room next door got up, so did you. Although they claim to have free parking, there are only three designated spaces, so found I had to park on the street for many nights of my stay. For the price, I'm sure you can get a better standard, closer to the city; it's a good half hour walk. On the plus side the wi-fi was excellent. I can't comment on the breakfast as after seeing the decor of the room (not seen a lick of paint for at least ten years) and it's not included in the room rate. I decided to give it a miss. The fact that you have to pay upon arrival, rather than departure rather gives the game away as if you have any reservations, it's too late as you've already parted with your cash.
