2 nights in York
Check in was quick and easy. Only stayed 2 nights so room was adequate as we were out most of the time and the bed was comfortable. Its in a good location, within easy walking distance from the town centre and near the Barbican. It could do with updating and a better cleaning regime but not so much it would put us off staying again.
