Holly Miller, August 2010: Everything was great. We were overall impressed!

The breakfast was very filling and tasty and the on-site staff we met (the porter and the serving lady at breaksfast) were both very helpful and courteous. I though the on-line information in terms of car parking and public transport were extremely helpful. It was excellent value for money and we would defintely stay again the next time we're in York and would definitely recommend to others. Thank you!
Alison Mackiewicz, June 2010: excellent!
Jonathan Millar, May 2010: I accidentally left my shirt in the wardrobe and the cleaner found it and tracked us down to return it, we had a great stay and were provided with everything that we needed and wanted, beyond our expectations and the cost was a fraction of other options we explored. Thanks! Jonathan Millar

Alice Gruber, March 2010: My stay was really good, thanks - the only thing I did not like is the state of the kettle.
Mrs L Richins, March 2010: We would use your facilities again. It was great as a weekend away and suitable if you just want one night stay even thought a few miles outside of York. Transport great getting in and out of York.

Magaret Tully, March 2010: We had a very pleasant stay and excellent ease of access for my daughter's interview.

Lynn Nichol, March 2010: My only comment would be that the TV had very poor reception and was unwatchable, this wasn't really a significant issue for me but it seems rather pointless having a TV if you can't watch it! Otherwise it was all very good.
