Great location, very clean room, staff were friendly. No easy access though. Had to park approximately 800 metres away and then walk. Probably could have pulled up out the front easy morning or evening to drop off suitcases. Room was downstairs (no lift) and it was quite noisy. The reception area was directly above our room so you could hear people walking all the time. Very noisy birds as well directly outside our window.

We arrived around 18.30, the staff were friendly and showed us to our room across a small courtyard. There were a few diners in the courtyard and it was quite noisy, but expected as this was an Inn rather than hotel, but the was some worry that we may be disturbed later in the night if the courtyard stayed open however we were relieved to find that it closed at 10.30.
The room was clean and spacious, I believe we were in the cottage that Guy Fawkes was born however brought up 21st century standards and a quiet night was had.
The breakfast was very nice and plentiful and there was a good choice which set us up nicely for the day ahead.

"Welcoming hotel with friendly staff & relaxing spa"
We stayed for dinner bed and breakfast and then visited the spa and had some treatments. The little town of Helmsley is delightful with plenty of shops, cafes and attractions to visit. We received a free upgrade on booking into the hotel which was rather unexpected but very nice. Following pre dinner drinks and then our dinner we retired to our room which had a real fire and it s own long area it was so relaxing. Breakfast was very nice and our morning at the spa was lovely way to finish our short stay. I will certainly be coming back again

Once enclosed by ancient fortified walls, York offers a wealth of cultural and historical sites, including York Castle, the National Railway Museum, and York Minster, a Gothic cathedral in the city center. The Shambles is a pedestrian-friendly street dating back to mediaeval ages, where it housed butcher shops. Today the scene is less gruesome, with quaint boutiques and tea rooms lining the road.
