nice and clean, "tight" basement carpark but with great staff and very good location. for what you get its a little on the expensive side but being right in the center of York some may expect to pay a premium.I get to travel the UK with work and have stayed in better hotels for less omney but it was still a very nice place. hotel was quite noisy till late but there was a wedding on down stairs so its all good.
york its self not being able to park
The location was fantastic for us just a short walk from the train station and near the opera house and shops. The room was a little small but very nice.
Hotel was very nice comfortable rooms. Staff were very helpful
location Room was way to small for family of four. Not enough legroom to open suitcases, etc.
The location was excellent.
cental location. clean and quiet rooms. very helpful staff.
garage parking was possible no air co in room and noisy corridor
Bags carried to the rooms, very clean room, good sized rooms cost for extra items, e.g. drink, foor etc.
we have stayed in hotels in london etc, which were a lot better value for money and definatly a 4star experiance! our room in the hilton york left a lot to be desired!!
The room was of a decent size and was clean and tidy. The hotel was in a good location. The staff were pleasant and helpful The shower was not great in terms of water pressure. For the price of the stay breakfast should have been included and there should have been decent biscuits in the room. When we arrived there was not enough parking spaces for the two cars in our group.
Kort avstand til York sentrum og til jernbanestasjonen. Muligheter for å komme ut på landsbygden i Yorkshire med rutebuss. Vi spiste ingen andre måltider enn frokost på hotellet, og den var riktig god. Det var veldig varmt på det vestvendte rommet. Vinduene kunne bare åpnes åpnes med en liten glip.
Flott hotell. Veldig elegant og stilrent. God frokost og god beliggenhet
Rene og ryddige rom. Sentral beliggenhet Bedre ventilasjon på rommene.
Helt greit hotell, men varierende kvalitet på rommene.
Hotellet var nyoppusset og moderne til engelsk å være. Meget sentralt. Deilig frokost og koselig spisesal.
Det var et moderne hotell med en god beliggenhet. Ikke langt til utesteder og shoppinggater. Standarden på rommene var bra. Moderne og delikat. Svært fornøyd. Et billig alternativ.
beliggenheten var topp , kort vei til alle servedighetene og gå avstand til togstasjonen , fine puber i området. frokost ikke innkludert i prisen.
Jeg syntes at hotellet var flott, og flott innredet. Jeg syntes det var rart at det ikke var dusj og toalett ved bassenget. At man måtte dusje på rommet er ikke idellt, mange vil nok hoppe I bassenget uten å ha dusjet på forhånd,noe som ikke er veldig hygienisk..
All staff extremely friendly and helpful no gym (but only observation if i was staying longer)
Room very clean and bed was very large and also comfortable. View was very nice. Windows drafty.Quite noisy as there was a wedding party below the night we stayed.
The pool was good. Spa facilities small but adequate. Not there long enough to try treatments . Nice smelling toiletries and breakfast was varied and plentiful. Staff were pleasant. Not too far out to walk into city centre Seeing discarded breakfast trays by the room in early evening, These were moved straight away when staff informed. Room only had two small velux windows so in a beautiful location , unable to take advantage of this. As it was an adjoining room the insulation to next room was not so good and TV next door was on loud and late. no extractor in bathroom- so steamed up quickly. room size very small- not as expected
Cleanliness of hotel, hotel location, hotel facilities, Booked in for three nights bed and breakfast, on two morning we were informed we were not booked in for breakfast, informed reception after first time this happening and was told that they would arrange this did not happen again, it did the following morning. I had to show my confirmation email from yourselves as they had us booked in for room only.
Once we actually got into our room, it was well maintained, quiet and comfortable. We had to move room twice before getting a satisfactory room. The first was situated directly opposite the lift and very noisy. The second was shabby and situated next door to the 'plant' room. The rooms in the older part of the hotel could do with updating as the decor is a little tired.
Very good location; very pleasant staff Restaurant prices too expensive (as other reviewers have noted); breakfast room is pokey; limited television reception.
Very nice hotel .conveniently positioned,plenty of parking. Only one bad point.cooked breakfast did not look very appetising,we arrived down for breakfast at about 09.30 and all of the items for the cooked breakfast looked to have been out too long and were dried up.we avoided these and settled for a cold breakfast with toast.
The hotel exceeded our expecrations, quality of food was good, staff were very attentive and courteous, leisure facilities were very good. Only point worth noting is to provide a better toast facility for breakfast.
food was good.Lady on front desk was very helpful. room was cold and i did not like the bed kept slipping down it.
Hotel was great lovely & clean. We had breakfast with our stay which was excellent fantastic choice, eat as much as you wanted cooked breakfast & cereals fruit etc. Staff friendly. Great location for York Races. Can't think of any.
relaxing weekend, ideally situated, excellent facilities, excellent staff nothing to not like
The bed was very comfortable. The receptionist very helpful. A good location. Check-in and out very efficient. It reminded me of a Torquay guest house. It is tired and the bar area needs a good clean in places and needs refurbishment. The breakfast was just about adequate (one rasher of fatty bacon!).
Very quiet location and close to rail station and city centre. Excellent swimming pool. Breakfast and evening meal very good. None
The adorable restaurant in the basement. A big surprise there! Great great great breakfast!! Staff super friendly also. Definitely a hit!
A very pleasant hotel, excellent staff and good value. Nothing
Excellent breakfast service to your table, hot food on a hot plate in good time
Very helpful staff. Comfortable room and excellent food. Great swimming pool. None
The hotel is well placed and just a 10-15 min walk to the center of york.Rooms were very clean and comfortable.Breakfast was excellent and all the staff were very friendly and helpfull.Special thanks to the young man on the front reception desk who provided us with hot tea and weather and traffic updates after getting our car stuck in snow in the carpark when checking out due to the severe winter weather! By the way we got home safely!!
The continued support and friendliness of all staff
Good value, near to Railway station. Smiley staff, beautiful furnishings, felt very safe and secure especially be a single woman traveller
Excellent hotel, Comfortable rooms, good facilities and location. No staff in hotel from 10pm on Sunday until breakfast on Monday
Warm welcome from staff. Helpful and courteous throught our stay. Good do with a refurbishment
friendly and cherrful staff good location
Room was very big
Decor bit dated but Comfortable, clean, good location. Value for money. Would use again for City Break.
Convenient location within walk distance of the centre Could do with a lick of paint in places
4 poster bed, all you can eat brekkie dirty dining table in morning
The hotel staff came over as genuinly friendly, the breakfast was the best I have had at a hotel in ages.
the staff were great, allowed us to check in early, and leave the car later so we could make the most of teh york xmas market It was like -9 degrees at night, and sadly i dont think that the heating times had been changed, so although, we were warm and tucked up in bed, there was a layer of ice inside the window in the morning, but hey, its not really a moan at all
excellent location for everything stayed in the coach house rooms they were in need of an update, looked a bit tired but were comfortable
Excellent value for money, perfect location and extremely friendly owners. Very much hope to retrurn.
The friendly service & very comfrotable bed.
Room was very small, but very nice and comfortable. Flat screen TV, hot drinks and ensuite all very good. Breakfast was excellent. Ideal for the single, budget conscious traveller. Great Value for money.
very friendly.nothing was to much trouble.food was lovely.all in all very enjoyable stay
Perfect breakfast, really lovely compact room. Friendly husband and wife team who where a great help. Nice and close to central York. Loved the place, Maureen Wootton
Clean and friendly. Breakfast was very good..easy to find and flat ten min walk into center of York.plenty of taxi s available at reasonable cost if you don't want to walk.
staff were very good. Breakfast was excellant. It was clean. Very acssesable for getting into york room was to small , facilities in bathroom needed reviewing.
A comfortable, convenient hotel. A very pleasant stay. None.
the breakfast was very nice, made from scratch. the bedspread, thorought it was dirty
nice clean rooms and bretfast very good no
helpful and friendly staff bed not very comfortable or the pillows
Extremely friendly staff who are polite, very helpful, excellent breakfast. All needs catered for in the room
Hotel staff was very friendly, the breakfast was good and the room was clean. A little bit far to the city centre.
Tony and Alison were very friendly,good breakfast, no problem with parking and it was free. would stay there again
friendly staff, clean room, no trouble at all
Clean room with all that I needed and a great breakfast all at a great price. Run by friendly, normal family.
I liked so much the friendly welcome and in general the attention to details.
The room and b'fast were both very good. It was particularly helpful to be given a recommendation for a local hairdresser, make an appointment for the next day, and to be very pleased with the result!
A really friendly welcome, and helpful with information.
I liked the all-round experience,really. It was comfortable,very clean and very close to the town centre.The proprieters were very friendly and approachable. I'm wracking my brains,here.I guess if I'm really honest,I'd have had an extra banger or a rasher at breakfast but that was a small gripe.
The position was ideal for jumping on a bus into York, which is only a short bus ride away, but saves all the pain in trying to negotiate the traffic and find car parking.
the friendly and helpful staff, the quality of the food and the service in the dining room and the helpful, polite receptionist
Cleanliness and friendly staff nothing
the locality as we were going to york races and it was ina perfect place to get to the races easily.Very enjoyable cooked breakfast nothing at all
Impressed by how clean the room smelt on entering Beds very soft and pillows very flat. However, when I asked for an extra pillow staff were extremely helpful, even asking what type of pillow I would like
The rooms were very quiet and little noise from other rooms, especially doors banging No character but this depends on what you are looking for. we wanted comfort and cleanliness as we were visiting York city centre and that is what we got.
Too far from city centre; breakfast good but too expensive
beautiful on suite room great breakfast and very friendly hosts an all round perfect stay
We had a very warm greeting when we arrived and were given lots of useful advise about the city. The room was one of the best we have stayed in - very clean and comfortable. The location was excellent for walking into the city. The breakfast was fantastic and kept us going for most of the day. The hotel was very quiet in the evening which meant a great nights sleep. I would highly recommend this Guest House!
Lovely small guest house, very comfortable, staff very friendly, good breakfast, a nit further from city centre than stated but would certainly go back.
Clean and friendly. Ideally located for York city centre.Very nice breakfast. Nothing
Lovely accommodation, spacious, pretty room (Room 3). Staff very friendly and accommodating. Very good breakfast, lovely dining room.
Very friendly owners, clean rooms and lovely breakfast AFter being at the hotel for one night and paying for the room on arrival, we were told we had not been charged the correct rate when booking and were asked for further monies. We argued that we had made the booking three months previously and no-one had contacted us to inform us even though they had the quoted price on booking. The owners did agree to waiver the extra cost but I felt uncomfortable after that.
The hospitality was second to none, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were stylish, exceptionally clean and very comfortable.
Warm welcome, lovely room road noise
The staff at the Tower Guest house were very welcoming and provided excellent service. We were particularly impressed by the cleanliness. We did not have any complaints nor was there anything that we were dissatisfied with.
The best thing was a change of scenery & relaxing time away, from the stress over the past year from building work at home,illness & losing a very close relative. The only very small thing was we found the room too hot during the night & couldn't sleep we had to open the window & fan on to cool us down.
Alt Mangler heis, tungt med koffert til 3. etasje
Historisk og samtidig moderne komfort. En oase midt i byen - et sted å trekke seg tilbake og nyte ro og fred. Skjønn hage, vennlig og hjelpsom betjening. Ny-oppusset rom med god komfort men litt dårlig luftsirkulasjon. Stille, koselig, hyggelig - anbefales på det sterkeste :) Dårlig luftsirkulasjon på rommet - ble tett og varmt. Men; det var en varm tid midt på sommeren jeg var der :)
Artig og spesielt hotell, gammelt, stive tradisjoner Noen røykerom tilgjengelig
Jeg likte at hoteller var en samling av mange og gamle bygninger med en historie. Fin hage. Veldig hyggelig personale.
Svært sentral beliggenhet, mulighet for svømming og trening i forbindelse med hotellet. God og rikelig mat, også god mulighet for å lage kaffe og te Sengene var svært ubekvemme, madrassene var klumpete og ubehagelige, manglet overmadrasser, også ubehagelig overbredsel. Rommene var litt nedslitte.
I loved the Olde Worlde feel of the building and also all the original features that had been kept Everything was Ok until we went for Breakfast on the Sunday, went down at 9.15am there was a queue, went back to our room for 20 minutes, and went down again at 9.35 there was still a queue, I have never stopped in a Hotel and had to queue for Breakfast, we were refunded our £10 without a problem but I really feel there should be more seating area for the number of bedrooms.
All are good except the comment in the next box. The temperature was too low and I could not sleep well during the night. I then checked the radiator and found no heating.
noisy with private functions at the weekend chaotic Sunday breakfast, not enough room for self service breakfast.
lovely location, great staff, the room we got eventually was nice and a lovely breakfats. good vfm wedding party - hbut they did stop the disco at 12. imp[ortant to warn people about the noise and extra demands this makes on a hotel
the hotel its self was very nice. the long walk into york. said only ten minutes. but its ten minuets to the river and another 15 into town. but on a nice day would be ok. nice river walk
The hotel was well situated for York and had a very nice relaxed atmosphere. Not being informed that we needed to collect our own breakfast after we had previously been served by staff. We just picked it up from other guests.
Proximity to York centre. Service at breakfast, insufficient food if you went down at 9.00 (breakfast .037.00-9.30 ) and repeated requests for toast and coffee ignored so that we reached the 9.30 deadline and then told "breakfast is only served until 9.30 !!"!
Handy to be outside York in intetntion to go into the town centre. The restaurant was cosy with a log fire Terrible rooms. I could hear peple snoring and going to the toilet all night form nearby adjoining rooms. Staff did not seem very helpful (spilled drinks in the bar and got breakfast order wrong)
We went for a meal as special occasion the food was very good and the whole experience was excellent everything - very good
The room was superb. Dinner was a treat,splendid menu and wel cooked. Service at breakfast time was not as good as it could be.
It was only 15 minutes walk into york. The reception was very welcoming and we were offered information on where to go and what to see in York. The room was clean and maintained the features of a listed building. The breakfast was excellent
Very friendly staff. Room was big, although decoration was a bit old fashioned. Well located, about 20 min walk from York minster. Only one hour for breakfast, meaning it was very busy and service was a bit slow. But breakfast was nice!
The room was very comfortable and the furniture was very nice. It states that this is a hotel but I would see it more as a B & B. I have stayed in many hotels through my line of work and this was not a hotel in my eyes. 15 min walk into the centre of York, we were located on the very top floor which was a hike up many stairs but the room was very nice.
Very attractive room, warm and peaceful. Excellent breakfasts. Very friendly and helpful staff. Parking a bit tight.
Good breakfast and the rooms were clean Rooms were very dated look like they had not been renewed since 1960. Bed side lights and room light did not work. Very expensive for what you got. I wouldn't stay again as the Travel inn for the same price is so munch better
Comfortable, excellent breakfast, parking and friendly proprietors. No.
The hotel was close to the center of York and was clean, staff were friendly and helpful Length of time waiting for breakfast
Really nice room with a very comfortable bed and everything was very clean. Breakfast was served at a reasonable hour and the entrance was available at all times if necessary, always positives in a guest house.
friendly,helpful but not intrusive staff.room was excellent with a great view of york
Comfy warm room
The owners were really friendly, the room was large and comfortable and very clean. The decor was very tasteful and the breakfast was lovely and relaxed. Slightly on the pricey side but was worth it for the level of service received. We would, without a doubt, stay there again.
Very comfortable rooms, friendly proprietor and staff, excellent breakfast, good location.
warm,welcoming,just a nice walk into the city centre
friendliness of staff, hotel location, great breakfast n/a
Staff Parking is a problem and no resturant/ lunch or evening meal facilities
The breakfast was second to none,the staff were friendly, helpful and very polite,the room was smart and very clean and the hotel was beautifully decorated nothing wrong with the hotel but due to the weather it would have been better if it had been a litle nearer to town, I should think if it had been nicer weather then the walk may have seemed shorter, buses ran very regular just a 100yds or so from the front door, the taxis in York were very easy to find and only cost approx £5 to get from town to the hotel, because of the snow we caught the bus into town and taxi back
i would use the bishops again as it is about a ten minute walk from the town centre plus i found the staff friendly and i the breakfast menu to be hearty and filling.
Good breakfasts. No smoking facillities outside. All smokers had to stand in the street.
friendly staff, nice breakfast, the layout of room All good
Had a fantastic weekend in York. Bishops was a friendly run, clean and spacious hotel. would book to stay there again.
friendly staff and good food
Great people. Excellent hotel
The staff were friendly,accommodation good and it was within easy and a pleasant alking distance of all the historical attractions in York. The dinner was locked in a a post 2nd world war time warp.
We enjoyed our stay, the hotel was quaint and quirky, but very clean and comfortable Everything was fine
The hotel is situated close to York city centre, very handy for all the sites We stayed in a double room which was very small.
Lovely old inn with delicious food and very friendly staff . Excellent position on quiet road but very near to York Minster . The shower in our bedroom was just a trickle .
Friendly staff, good breakfast,good location of the hotel to York centre. Room was cramped, and the bathroom too small. Television in the cupboard above the wardrobe, not ideal, TV remote did not work.
location of hotel and friendliness of staff loved it all
Position to city centre,and all of things stated in 2, not forgetting the gorgeous breakfasts & complimentary coffee & cakes in the afternoon. It`s a pity that there is not more car parking space, although the hotel staff did a great job of making your car available when it was required.
We got a family room ,so no complaints plenty of room , nice and airy well fitted out. Didnt stop long enough !!
