The Wolds Retreat: A rural retreat

The Wolds Retreat is part of the Buddhist Centre at Kilnwick Percy which is a few miles east of York near Pocklington. It is on the Yorkshire Wolds Way walking route and popular with walkers and cyclists staying for just one night on their journey.
The people who stay longer are people who want a quiet and relaxed stay in a very rural location , although the No. 45 bus stops at the lane leading to the centre on its way to and from York.
The apartments are built around a nice courtyard and there are gardens across the courtyard. Access to the main hall is through a door at the back of the hall and breakfast is taken in the hall overlooking the beautiful grounds and lake. I understand breakfast is quite simple and as this is a Buddhist establishment there is no meat served.
I have never stayed here as I live locally but include it as part of these comprehensive York pages.

Peace and quiet.

Novotel: mixed

The positives:-
- my room was spacious and clean;
- check-in & out were quick and efficient;
- the price (£95) was good;
- the location is quiet and central; and
- the railway station is walking distance (20 minutes), weather permitting.

On the other hand:-
- I'd asked for a quiet room and was given one on the 1st floor right above the entrance (taxis, smokers) and close to the lifts; perhaps one of the least quiet in the whole place
- it was a disabled room: the washbasin in the toilet was about knee height; when I sat on the WC my feet were off the ground:
- the "comfortable sofa" promised in the booking confirmation had gone missing;
- the hotel was full of (noisy) young families; not the hotel's fault, but no fun either;
- there is a Wii in the reception area; I mean, what kind of half ar*ed hotel does that?

I unchecked the breakfast option when booking. They wanted £13.50 for a continental, in a room swarming with little kids (as it turned out). I got the same breakfast for £5.50 in town, 10 minutes away.

The location is good, only 10 minutes walk from the city centre. Easy access to the tourist sights, restaurants and pubs. 20 minutes walk to the railway station.

The rear of the hotel backs onto the River Ouse.

The Wii (*groan*).

York Marriott Hotel: A single night stay in York

We had decided to make a visit to York, it was a spur of the moment kind of trip and it was linked with the National Rail museum. The hotel was busy and our requested early check in did not take place - we were beaten by a great many female golfers who were participating in a tournament nearby.

It was sunny and warm and the hotel has great grounds to enjoy.

Reasonable restaurant and spa - it is a little outside the city centre but very pleasant and comfortable. Quite traditional in its approach to service.

Travelodge York Central Mickelgate: Clean, Simple, Good Value in the City Centre

The location is great! Less than 10 minutes walk and we were at any of the attractions within York's City walls. The hotel is quite new and the rooms are what you expect from a Travelodge - they are very comfortable and spotlessly clean without being luxurious. The breakfast was fine but checking in was a slow process simply because the member of staff there at the time seemed determined to ignore us! We never had any reason for complaint about service after this however.

Monkgate Guest House: Comfortable Guest House

We stayed one night at the Monkgate Guest House while visiting relatives near York. They are located within easy walking distance of all the main tourist attractions, the Shambles, the Minster etc.

My friend and I had 2 lovely adjacent rooms with a shared bath. The owners, a husband and wife, were extremely helpful, even parking our car for us in their rather narrow driveway.
The rooms had a "Teddy Bear" theme and were comfortable and warm. There was plenty of hot water in the shower and a wonderful cooked, full "English Breakfast" in the breakfast room.

A very nice experience, would recommend it to anyone visiting this historic city.

4 Longfield Terrace, York: Fantasticly styled self catering 3 storey house

Three story house with three double bedrooms (can be twin beds if required) and one single bedroom, sleeps 7 people! Fantastically furnished rooms with two main bathrooms and an ensuite in the master bedroom!!!

Open plan living space, with gleaming kitchen and seperate dining area and living room. There are two patio doors, one off the kitchen and one off the dining room out onto the patio and back garden which is also tastefully designed!

A fantastic place to stay whilst visiting York either for a few days or a few weeks, it would be lovely to stay here over Christmas!

Great location, near to the town centre, but far enough out of the way to not be bothered by the noise on a night. About a ten minute (if that) walk into the town centre.

Foss House: Foss house/Cloister's Walk

We never got to stay at Foss House - owned by the same people who own Cloister's Walk. We booked the accomodation through the York Tourist Board website 2 months before our visit. We received a confirmation. Two weeks before our visit, I emailed to receive details about where to pick up the key. No reponse. I had to email 3 times and leave a phone message before I received an email saying - sorry, we double-booked, you can't have the flat.

This was 5 days before our planned arrival.

Take bookings on the internet but don't use email.

Dovecote Barns Yorkshire: Home away from home

We walked into our luxurious new accomodation. Straight away the warmth engulfed us and the stylish interiors told us that we were going to be spoilt. And we were.
Have a look! www.dovecotebarnsyork.co.uk

Three renovated barns sleep 2, 4 or 6 people) A group of 12 can eat and sleep together. Our barn had en-suite bedrooms, log stoves and under-floor heating. oooooh luxury!!!!!

Four High Petergate Hotel: Special hotel in the very centre of York

I recently stayed in this York hotel and found it to be very special indeed. The hotel is in a stunning old town house which is right next to a section of the city walls and Bootham Bar. Consequently it is very centrally situated and all the major attractions are within easy walking distance. The hotel actually only has about a dozen rooms but, being so small, you get a really personal level of service. Being an old building, our room was reasonably small, but was exceptionally comfortable. We also ate in the hotel's restaurant and found the food to be excellent.

Both hotel and restaurant are not cheap, but are undoubtedly very luxurious. It would be the perfect location for a romantic break.

Historical setting, beautiful building, very friendly staff.

The Black Swan: Ok, so not exactly Leeds

This is not in Leeds but I can't find Helmsley under destinations... Helmsley is one of those gorgeous little market towns that you find in the Yorkshire Dales and fronts onto a pretty market square.
The room was quite small but the gardens were stunning! The staff were lovely and we even bumped into Judith Chalmers (one for the English there) at breakfast!

The gardens overlooked the churchyard and were so peaceful. And there's a castle just off the main square!

Our main reason for staying here was to visit The Star at Harolme, more of that in another tip, and we found that the owners of the Star also had a deli in Helmsley.

Queen Anne's Bed & Breakfast: Good value York B&B

Budget accommodation can be difficult to find in York. Queen Anne's was the best value B&B we could find at 50 pounds a night for a double, including breakfast. It's in a good location on Queen Anne's street, outside the old city walls, about 10 minutes walk north of the Minster.

The owners are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Our room had TV, coffee & tea making facilities, shower and toilet. Best of all was the excellent breakfast - with a "Full English" as well as much coffee, cereal and toast that you want.

Self-catering flat in the City Centre

We rented a wonderful flat, or as the Americans would say appartment, over the National Trust Shop. The Living Room was in the timber framed bit of the photo and the Bedroom windom is just behind the hanging shop sign.

Great views over Goodramgate, College Street and the Minster. Excellent furnishings and kitchen. City shops all within 10 minutes walk.
