Save money on entry to the thrilling York Dungeon, just 2 miles from Holiday Inn York. The secret worlds of highwayman Dick Turpin and the infamous Guy Fawkes are brought vividly to life. You can pick up discounted tickets from our friendly Front Desk staff.
The hotel is well situated. Plenty of parking. 2 miles from York. Bus stop a 5 minute walk down road. Bus every 12 minutes. Don't even think about driving into York! We did once. Never ever again!
pubs near, Fox and Roman and the Crosskeys. Crosskeys quiet, food ok but smothered in Rosemary Thyme. Also menu nothing like the one on website. Went twice to Fox, lovely. Nice old pub, lots of atmosphere and great choice. Their various pies seem to be a speciality.
Breakfast in hotel is great! Plenty of choice and serve yourself. Full English highly recommended. £5 each, you can't go wrong. All staff very pleasant and helpful. Free 24 hour Wi-Fi in rooms. Didn't dine in hotel as we prefer pub food.
Complaints? Just one. The TV has plenty of Freeview channels as you'd expect. Then there's pay TV... We rarely watch 'normal' TV at home. I load my phone with TV series and films, and watch what we like connecting via a HDMI lead. Couldn't do that. All buttons on TV disabled and missing on remote to change input. Freeview drivel or Pay TV only options. We like to dine early, go to our room, have a few beers and wine, relax watching 'our' TV shows. We're 60 and have never come across this type of setup in the many hotels we've stayed in. For this reason alone we would not stay at a Holiday Inn again. Sorry. [Less]
Hotel is very convenient foe the Armouries and Leeds City Centre. Carparking next door was also a bonus - we got a weekend ticket for £15 which was valid for Fri-Mon.
Reception staff were somewhat[More]
miserable on our arrival - no smile or 'Hello' I almost felt ignored!. On asking directions to a couple of nearby locations, they were unable to help - one was less than 5 minutes walk away!
Room wasn't the biggest I have stayed in for a family of 3, but served the purpose.
Breakfast a bit limited, no bacon, just scrambled egg (a bit tasteless) sausage [Less]
