Not worth the price - Theres a lot better
Summer city Centre hotel - not a bottle of water in room - teabags not replaced or room made up No sink in toilet - very bizarre design by someone who clearly doesn’t wash their hands when they go to the toilet Reception staff very polite but big delays as understaffed at peak times Pool area is manky - main reason for booking this hotel but it was not pleasant!! Carpets badly stained - spilled drink dried on furniture - clearly not thoroughly cleaned between guestS Good breakfast and very pleasant staff

My medication was in a plastic bag with other stuff ,umbrella,snacks,in the room. It disappeared and was not found.I reported to management and no proper reaction to find my bag.I did not ask to clean room daily ,still housekeeper or someone else been in my room without permit. Service was very slow . Room was nice with beautiful furniture.My feeling is staff there were playful and had fun instead of run the hotel.

Peace and tranquility in busy York
Good spacious room and comfortable bed. Staff very friendly and helpful. The food was good in the evening and we could eat in the bar area with our dog. Good choice available for breakfast. Good location with parking just by the city walls. Quiet and able to walk along the river banks from the hotel which was good with a dog

Really good location but hotel service needs improvement . Check in was 1630 pm not good . We suspect this is because of Insufficient room service personnel. Cost for car parking shouldn’t need to pay hotel franchise , should be incorporated in the room rate . Room has no tooth brush, shampoo, or shower/bath gel. Room service wasn’t until mid afternoon each day . Room was never vacuumed.Bar facilitates good , leisure amenities good. Staff tried hard but seemed overwhelmed when it got busy.
