Positive Reviews

Central location for sightseeing

The Queens is located in the heart of the City of York with great views of the Ouse River It is walking distance to historic sites such as West Minster and to shopping, restaurants and nightlife The hotel is close to York Railway Station and 30–40 minutes from Leeds/Bradford airport.

Free Wi-Fi and scenic river views

Rooms are clean and comfortable Request a river view room overlooking the Ouse River The free Wi-Fi is great and worked very well Furthermore, the room size is nice and large and the family room option great for travelling with children.

Pleasant hotel staff and tasty food

Reception staff is polite and helpful; likewise, room and bar staff are very friendly Breakfast offers plenty of selection and the quality is excellent, as is the dinner menu Great value all around!

Negative Reviews

Additional costs

The Queens has parking but only if pre-booked at a fee and available when you arrive, otherwise you need to locate an NCP car park and walk River views from the hotel are pretty but to get a room with a river view, there is an additional cost; make sure you know what you are getting when you book!

Small TVs and disappointing room amenities

The TVs in the rooms are tiny, and the room only had one outlet, which isn’t very useful Towels are small and the hair dryer ineffective More attention to these comforts would be nice.

Disappointing service

Upon arrival at the correct check-in time, reception did not have the room ready and wasn’t very accommodating during the wait Parking is often full, even if you pre-book; in this case, you are simply told to find NCP parking elsewhere The hotel should have better procedures for this and more knowledgeable staff.
