    The location, by the river, and close to town centre, was excellent.the staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful. Car park facilities are excellent, located beneath the hotel, very secure and very reassuring.

    Good

    The staff were rude and a disagreement occurred at check-in due to us changing our arrival date as my daughter was in hospital the previous booked date. This was changed3 days before due to arrive and they told us they could provide the same rooms for the same price on a different day. When we arrived they were insisting we pay an extra £40 for this change. A massive disagreement occurred until we were about to walk away and find some other place to stay. The manager eventually agreed not to charge us the extra but was extremely rude and their staff sneered at us after that. No such thing as goodwill or the customer is always right attitude here then!! The stay was not marred after that as we kept away from the hotel apart from sleeping there.

    The room was lovely and the view was lovely, however as it was on the river bank opposite some pubs it was very noisy until the early hours of the morning. People were still quite rowdy at 4 am on Friday morning.

    Very good

    Very good location

    I booked two double rooms and they were on different floors which I did not find acceptable, the hotel should know people want to be together, I also asked for river view and only one room had a river view. If I had booked this hotel at the last minuet I would have understood, but it was booked weeks before hand. My other complaint was the television, it had very poor picture and kept going off and on all the time. It certainly was too small for the room and wants renewing.

    Fabulous

    Very central location ideal for all attractions and only a 10 minute walk from the train station our room was quite large and very comfortable and although next to the lift we were not disturbed by it at all.

    The room although quite large could have done with some slight work, there was a hole in the wall and some mould in the bathroom.

    Superb

    The queens is in a good location right on the river we stayed in a room overlooking the river so when we woke in the morning and opened the curtains we could watch the rowers going down. Our room was really nice plenty of room and would definetly stay again.

    We have been home only 5 days. We were kept at the hotel for about l hour because our credit cars were declined. Eventually they were accepted. We were told not to leave the hotel even though we had a train booked to travel on. We have checked with Mastercard since coming home and told it was not the Australian end but that it must have been the Queen Hotel bank. This was an embarrrassement to my husband who was a Chief Manager with the Commonwealth Bank before he retired. This hotel willl not be recommended to our friends who often travel abroad and like recommendations about good places to stay..

    We have stayed at the Queens Hotel York twice now and will stay there again when we next go to York. The hotel is by the river, well positioned for museums, shopping and ease of getting anywhere on foot. We travelled by train and walked the distance from station to hotel in 5 minutes. the hotel has lovely rooms, friendly staff, a good breakfast and fulfilled all our needs.
