My wife and I had a four day break in York at this hotel, we found it to be very clean and quiet, the staff were very freindly and helpful. It is well placed for the park and Ride into York and for a massive retail park.

Since I knew I would be arriving late I had ASKED FOR A QUIET ROOM - hoping for a lie-in. Due to delayed flight I arrived at the hotel at 03.15 am. Window was wide open and room cold. No extra bedding in room and heater did not work. Could not get on to internet to advise next days client that I may be late.
Managed to sleep until about 06.30 am, when people started having showers causing the PLANT ROOM NEXT DOOR TO BECAME EXTREMELY NOISY! Reported my frustration to the front desk, only to be told that there was nothing wrong with the heater and I did not know how to work it!! As a Chartered Mechanical Engineer I think that I can tell when a heater does not work (as was demonstrated later when staff could not get it working). The response from the front desk to all this was provision of another heater for the following night - WHEN MY BOOKING WAS FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY!!

We are accustomed to our domestic king size bed so found the double in our room a little uncomfortable

First, I want to compliment Leah who was working the front desk when we arrived. She really went above and beyond to help. We had requested a downstairs non smoking room but somehow that request got lost. Leah carried our suitcases upstairs for us! She got a fan for us because it was so hot and we had no air conditioning. She mailed postcards for us, recommended a wonderful place to eat. She was truly fantastic and went out of her way to insure that we were satisfied.
The room we were in smelled of smoke. We were assured that all rooms were non smoking but our room had been a smoking room at one time and still had the smell. There was a door to a hallway next to our room that had a no smoking sign on it. I suspect that was the truly non smoking area of the hotel.
We request a change of room for the next night and were moved downstairs to a non smoking room. Again, the girl at reception carried the suitcases downstairs. Our experience the second night was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlisonJ Convenient and comfortable
All good. Bed comfortable, staff friendly, generally clean and airy. Toby Carvery next door provides good food.
Shower in the bathroom (not very powerful) and no bath. Not a big issue, but when I'm away from home, I like to take the opportunity to soak in the bath.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by walker77 Sleep?
The hotel was not the best I have ever stayed in, the staff were very friendly. This however was the only positive. The bed was uncomfortable it was too soft and every time I turned over it bounced me around so I did not sleep well on the first night.
On the second night I had the worst experience I have ever had in a Holiday Inn hotel (or any for that matter). The hotel placed me and my family sandwiched between two groups of party goers. The walls were thin and you could hear everything that the groups said and the noise they made. This all started at 1am and finished after I spoke to one of the groups making the noise at 5am. Luckily my four year old son somehow managed to sleep through it all.

Due to work commitments I needed to book a hotel quickly where I could work in the evening after a long day travelling.
Never stayed at this hotel before even though I have to visit York regularly, but would certainly book it again.
I was so impressed I took out their Priority Club membership.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pot Pourri A good place to stay
This is an ideal place to stay within easy reach of York and the surrounding area. We made use of the park and ride having had a long drive from Essex which worked very well.
All the staff were really friendly and welcoming as soon as we walked in the door.and the accommodation was fresh and clean and stayed that way throughout our visit with friends.
We all enjoyed the selection at breakfast each day we were there and found the easy access to wi-fi really useful.
Would certainly have no hesitation in staying here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mr Ag Great staff, excellent room with decent location
The hotel itself looked great. The rooms were modern, and everything looked clean. There were always staff available, regardless of what time they were needed. The location was okay, it was about a 10 minute taxi into town, and there was also a bus on offer (5-10 minute walk to the nearest bus stop).
The staff themselves were very friendly, often just stopping for a chat to find out how we were. All in all we were very impressed and would definitely visit again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catherineangel Excellent reception staff
Our stay was made memorable by the friendliness and helpfulness of Leah on reception. She helped us to choose a restaurant for the evening and even made sure there was a table for us without us asking her to do so. She kept smiling even when she had to stay a bit later as her replacement was delayed.

A very clean tidy and accommodating hotel, request for extra pillow was completed in less than 5 minutes. Breakfast overall good but bacon rather than sausage would be better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkyMark5 Fine Hotel, but a Long Way Out!
This HIExpress is a perfectly fine hotel - but it is a long way from the centre of York. Not a problem if it's a business or family stay and you either want to just get your head down or can drive into town, but not ideal if you fancy a few drinks. Taxis are expensive!

Hotel looks a little shabby from outside and location is not great costing £8-10 to get into the centre of York.
All that said the staff are very friendly and helpful the bar well stacked and discounted for loyalty members. Breakfast was cooked and self service and the blackout blinds certainly helped you sleep.
All in all nice hotel shame about the location and first impression.

If I return to York, and I will - I will stay here again for convenience and it is nice to be treated well by hotel staff.
Hopefully they will improve the coffee! - but that was my only negative - the rest was an excellent stay in a clean, tidy, comfortable Hotel with lovely Friendly Smiley staff - Oh and easy parking xx

We were on our way home from France and spent 2 days - the welcome received was first class - very pleasant and warm and everything was explained clearly. The hotel was very busy and the receptionist suggested times to try and avoid. She also said that there were complimentary newspapers available. The room was very clean and tidy and very quiet - which is a must for us. My mistake was that I thought it was in central York but it was only minutes away by car and was better for that .
We like and enjoy staying in Holiday Inn Express as breakfast is included - much better than Premier Inn.

Very good hotel all round. I must comment on the breakfast (standard inclusion on all rates), you get more than just a continental breakfast, there are hot food options too! Never had this before at any other hotel of the same standard/ratings.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by UddersEd Comfortable, but could have been better
The hotel is a few miles to the north-east of the city centre. Its location (which doesn't seem to be easily found by satnav) is fine if you don't mind using public transport to get into York, or paying York's overinflated parking charges. Parking at the hotel was free and conveniently situated. The hotel, whilst adequate in most respects, struck me as a slightly upmarket 'travelodge'. The room was spacious and comfortable, and we got a good night's sleep each night. On the minus side, the shower was very weak, and the bathroom at times had a rather odd smell coming from I know not where. As an IHG Rewards Club member, we got free wifi (though there were signs everywhere saying it was free anyway!). The wifi was a wee bit slow at times, and had the annoying feature that an id and password was needed every time a logon was done. A self-service breakfast was included in the price of the room. This was adequate, but the choice of hot and cold food was quite limited. Breakfast time was generous at the weekend, but finished at 9.30 on weekdays. Our experience with staff at the hotel was varied. Housekeeping staff and some of those on reception were very helpful and obliging. Others, particularly one or two of the staff looking after breakfast, were not very customer-oriented (to put it politely). Overall, our stay at the hotel was pleasant and comfortable, though perhaps only moderate value for money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chicken12 An excellent stay
Our first visit to a holiday Inn Express did not disappoint. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The room was extremely clean, spacious and well maintained to a high standard.
The breakfast area is small and the choice of cooked breakfast was limited. There was however still more than enough to eat to ensure guests did not leave the hotel hungry. The staff in the breakfast area are very attentive and appeared very supportive of those with young children.
For a short stay I would recommend this hotel.

Hotel easy to find and a very warm welcome from reception and very helpful. Room was fine but as a family of 4 sharing one room a little snug at times but did not spoil the experience. Breakfast was fine and staff were very helpful. Overall experience was good and would stay again
