Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beelover Excellent hotel for a very reasonable price
We took our two grand children for a weekend away in York. they slept on the sofa bed in our room which made me feel more at ease. Although there was not a lot of room to move around we were only using the room in the evenings so it was sufficient.
The room and bathroom were spotless as was the rest of the hotel.
The breakfast was really good with a great choice of hot and cold food. We did have to wait for a table on our second morning and they ran out of sausages. The staff were really polite and helpful and worked really hard to keep everything topped up.
The hotel is situated only 5 minutes drive from the park and ride which makes it really convenient to visit York with out the hassle of parking. The days we went the parking was free and it was only £5.20 return for the four of us on the bus. The buses are every 20 minutes or so so you don't have to wait long and they drop you very close to all the attractions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Welcome Change
Had to rearrange my business stay from another chain to the Holiday Inn Express. The administration difficulty at the other chain led me to a very welcome change in amenities for a business stay after a long day. The gentleman at the desk was very helpful and friendly. Had a relaxed stay in a very clean and comfortable room, enjoying a coffee after moving in there. The breakfast was included:
The coffee machine produced a not so tasty cappuccion. Having our own chickens at home it would be great to get a scrambled egg with the same quality. - But that is a general thing in the hotel industry. Great stay at the Holiday Inn Express in York. Thanks!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Iyetomi Comfortable and good value for money.
This was good value for money. I wasn't driving but the taxi from the train station was only £10. I came with my son and the next day we went into town on the bus. the bus stop was only about 10 minutes walk away. You may need to check bus timetables ahead, though.
If I was driving I almost definitely would have missed my turning so signage could be better.
If I went to York again, I would stay here.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mactavish54 COLD ROOM
The day I arrived at this express it was cold, unfortunately the heating in the room didn't work, even the staff on duty tried and had to get maintenance to rectify the following day, the room was okay but as I stay in many hotels in a year this express in my opinion is average.

Stayed with my 2 young kid and husband. On a Sunday night. Hotel seemed busy Great value for money. Staff very friendly,Room very clean, bed was comfortable. We had a family room kids had a pull out bed. Which my husband ended up sleeping on and not very comfortable for an adult. Free wifi in room for 2 devises which is great but couldn't connect one devise and other was cutting out. Breakfast is free (?) and was substantial for us. There was a good variety. It's next door to a carvery which was good for us as we didn't need to run around to find a kids friendly rested aunt. Would defiantly recommend this hotel. And will defiantly be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ester Good experience
Have stayed here before so not surprised at facilities and excellent staff service. Room was spotless and bar service very friendly - only downside was the Gordons 2 shot gin bottle was not complimentary like it is on BA. Breakfast was excellent.
I didn't receive my elite bonus points voucher but probably my fault as I had booked 2 rooms and confused even myself when checking in

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sued52 Holiday Inn Express in York
The hotel is in a great position for visiting York as there is a Park and Ride just up the road, which is far better than driving into York and finding a place to park. We found the hotel comfortable and very clean and the staff were very pleasant. The only criticism we could mention is that the hotel room was a bit on the warm side as the weather was warm, and the beds had quite thick quilts which made for a rather uncomfortable night,. No problems on a cold night though I would guess. Breakfast was good and overall we enjoyed our stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lyfsabeech Usual high standard
The high standard that we have come to expect was apparent at this hotel. Comfortable beds in a functional room with all the facilities that could be desired. Staff were helpful and the breakfast was good. The provision of cheese and ham was absent which was the only disappointment.

Myself and a member of staff took our disabled employer away for a two night stay here. From booking the break over the phone to leaving the staff all bent over backwards. We would highly recommend to anyone. Nothing is too much trouble here. We had two rooms that connected . This was fantastic allowing easy access and privacy. We shall return in December .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WirralTangerine Yet another enjoyable visit to our favourite city...
The staff on check in and out were extremely friendly and very efficient, and you were always greeted you with a smile and a cheerful hello.
We always try to stop near to the Park and Ride system on the numerous occasions we've visited York as it's so much easier than trying to park within the city itself - and cheaper!!

firstly I would like to say the staff were very polite and pleasant next the location at first I thought it was far out of York but this was not the case just up the road is a park and ride taking the stress and expense out of parking in York next there is a carvery next to the hotel where you can get a good cheap meal

A very comfortable, well run hotel. We would have liked a larger area to sit and have a drink and watch TV. So we did this in our room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Michmoch Well run hotel with very helpful and friendly staff
I stayed at HIE York for 5 nights with my 3 daughters. We booked in advance a double room with a double sofa bed. I am still not sure why this was called an 'advance saver rate' as when I looked to book a second room for someone else for the same dates, the rate had gone down. I did enquire twice via email why this was the case, but never received any reply.
On arrival, we were swiftly booked in by very friendly staff (all staff were friendly, competent and very helpful). Our room was bigger than the usual double, and it was clean and tidy.
First night's sleep wasn't the best - the beds (particularly the sofa bed) were not particularly comfortable, but when we mentioned this the staff were more than happy to give us extra duvets that we then used as mattress toppers. The breakfast was better than expected, again the staff worked hard and were very friendly. The variety of food offered was good.
The hotel location was excellent as a base for visiting York (with the park & ride a 2 minute drive from hotel-unfortunately, this was not walkable due to no footpaths), also visited Castle Howard, Pickering etc.
We would definitely stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by raz0103 Good location but no a/c
Close to city and park & ride is only a few mins drive. Easier to catch bus into city centre with return ticket.
Hotel was good, easy check in etc....we were on the ground floor (family room 2ad 2 ch). However, there was no air conditioning within the roon so it was very humid - even opening the windows didn't help and we weren't really keen on leaving the windows open. Breakfast area is small so you had to time it to get a table - you are allowed to take breakfast to your room but this can be gard carrying trays.
However, this was only a little negativity on a good hotel and we did enjoy our 2 days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Annie1955 Lovely Room
Enjoyed room layout etc very comfortable.
2 moans though:
1. breakfast area too small and very busy, (in fact a bit manic at 9:10 a.m. on the morning of our visit), a very small choice of cooked food.
2. Our room was right over the reception area which do to the construction of the porch and the fact that it poured with rain most of the night the guttering was very noisy. Also work men at the front of the building about 8 a.m. were banging and shouting, which I thought a little unnecessary.
Other wise reasonably enjoyable stay

I would definately use this Holiday Inn again, the rooms were clean and confortable, all the staff were friendly and the location was excellent for York city centre, bit of advice for holidaymakers if going in to York by car you will pay £11.50 for 5 hours plus and the fee needs to be paid in change no notes excepted

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CST123 Relaxing break in York
Easy location & excellent first impression with our rooms available early. Staff were very friendly and professional. Staff also recommended a local restaurant to eat at where we had an excellent meal, particularly as one of our party is vegetarian and the meal choice was great. Ideal location for local shopping centre and park & ride car park with a short journey into the centre of York. Rooms were comfortable with good facilities. Complimentary breakfast was very welcome with a good choice for everyone. We use Holiday Inn hotels around the country and would definitely use this one again and recommend to others.

I stay away very often on business, and it is very rare (and so refreshing) to be welcomed by such pleasant, attentive and genuinely nice people as the reception staff at the hotel.
Thankyou - you can teach your bigger brothers at some Holiday Inns and most Crowne Plaza's a thing or two about customer service.
