Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pwoolf Dated rooms needing upgraded
Fairly modern interior at the reception, bar etc but the room we stayed in for the night was dated, basic and small. The bathroom was one of the smallest I have been in, and although clean, requires to be updated as generally has a very cheap look and feel. The bath showed it had been damaged at some point and instead of being replaced it was only repaired, so had a number of marks and dents all over it.
In the evening we decided to have dinner in the bar. The bar seems short of staff as every table had glasses crisp packets etc left over from the previous customers. After our meal these tables had still not been cleaned. The food was OK but greatly over priced.

Hotel situated in quiet location close enough to York City Centre yet far enough out of town. If that makes sense ! Staff very helpful. Rooms clean & comfortable. Food good.

Comfortable stop over whilst helping family move house. Hotel seemed quite full with a couple of coach parties staying overnight but staff coped very well. Check in and out was very smooth.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by socoflyer Holiday Inn York
One of the worst Holiday Inns we have stayed in.
Poor booking in experience, pokey en suite and room could have been better. Not impressed

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cordingly Tired
Having stayed in numerous Holiday Inns, this was clearly one of the 80's style premises and although the reception and lounge areas were OK, the rooms were a little tired and dated.
Usually, I don't worry too much, as the staff at my regular hotel are so friendly and welcoming both on reception and in the restaurant that this makes up for the rooms, but at York, their attitude whilst not rude or unfriendly, seemed to be one or two gears down. Breakfast was also pretty average, whilst basically being the standard format and fare, was short of some supplies and no-one asked if we wanted tea etc.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Myrns Comfortable room
This was my third visit to this hotel but this time around they offered free internet access through a daily voucher. It is definitely an improvement. Room was clean and tidy, though would have appreciated enough supply for making coffee as milk is limited to 4daily which is just enough for a mug of coffee for one so my other half had to drink his coffee without milk, and we had to make tea for the morning without milk. We were left with a note to ask for more at reception but would anyone bother to come out of their room again just to ask for milk?
Restaurant was how I remembered it and always has that ambience feel to it. The only thing was that on our first dinner (July 15), we were served by two so-called trainees with no supervision as they didn't seem to have a clue what they were doing - wondering if they were high school work experience students. Plate with food was served across the table, from one end to the other, instead of serving it from the side of the diner. No butter knife was provided for the bread and so on. However, on the second night, we were served by very efficient staff and they were very helpful - just forgot to ask their names.
This is one of my favourite Holiday Inn location and I shall come back here again.
