The room was 40 degrees when we arrived and it took 2 days with a little oil heater to get the room warm enough to sleep without wearing our outside jackets. The walls are paper thin to the point that we could not only hear all conversations from another room, but we could hear the person(s) SNORING all night long. This is the most basic of accommodations if you just need a bed and a bathroom. It has gone down hill from 3 years ago. It's safe and in a short distance from the Minster and on the bus route to Castle Howard. Oh, and there's NO daily housekeeping. Want clean towels, go to the front desk between 9:30 and 3:00 or hang 'em up and hope they dry. Sorry, we wouldn't stay there again.
