    A lovely hotel with friendly, helpful staff and lovely garden. Warm and cosy room but a bit cramped to be called superior we thought. Also wallpaper peeling in bathroom and curtains hanging off hooks and net curtains that could have done with a wash spoiled the overall impression. We also thought it strange that although we had said we were leaving at 7 a.m. no-one was there to take our keys. This wouldn't stop me coming back though and I will certainly recommend the hotel.

    A comfortable room, excellant staff, a good & freshly cooked breakfast, and a welcome bar and public rooms. A nice 10 minute walk along the river bank to York centre. A suggestion is that when confirming the reservation the correct post code for entering onto a sat nav system should be given as using the post code on the details given does not recognise the property as it isn't exactly in Fulford road. Luckily the receptionist, Joclyn, was able to 'talk us in'.

    From booking in to checking out and everything in between the service was first class. The room, 205, four poster was very comfortable. The traffic noise was not a problem. The breakfasts, we had a 3 night stay, were very good. I can recommend the kippers. The 10 minute walk to the city beside the river was excellent and equally enjoyed by out Westie. The staff and other guests were very friendly and helped make this a memorable stay. Thank you we will definitely be returning when next visiting York.

    I chose the B&B for its location and it proved to be excellent. Being able to leave my car and walk was a great option. Breakfasts were great, lots of choice and well prepared. The gardens were an added bonus. There are one or two repairs that need attending to, but they did not spoil the stay.

    The staff were fantastic and the Priory is well set up for dogs (we had a ground floor room and were able to eat breakfast in the bar with the dog). The breakfast is lovely, with an excellent choice. The only real problem was the noise from the road (it might have been because we were at the front of the building), and the occasional loud person in reception.

    The staff were helpful and welcoming and the room was a good size, clean with a good bathroom. It was very noisy because of the road outside. We go away quite often and stay in a range of hotels and B&Bs and do think that this was overpriced.

    We organised a stay at The York Priory for my son and his partner to explore York for a couple of days as a xmas gift. As The York Priory had good reviews on the internet we felt confident booking it. My son and his partner say they thoroughly enjoyed their one night stay because the hotel was clean, the room was comfortable, they are dog lovers and the breakfast was fantastic.

    A few mid-week days away at a very friendly hotel in york. Good off road parking and a fine four-poster bedroom with fine bathroom, but it could have benefited with double glazing as it was situated on the main road. Breakfast was great on all days.and we liked the milk that was available in a fridge that you could take to your room.

    Spent two nights here, 2nd to 4th November 2013. The room was a downstairs front double. Very nice room plenty of room, comfy bed. Ensuite with shower and the shower was great. Breakfast was more than adequate with plenty of choice. Friendly and helpful staff. One minus was the traffic noise from the road but couldn't be helped with the room being on the front and downstairs. Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend.

    The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful and the location is ideal: about a 10/15-minute walk into the centre of York along a riverside footpath. We were delighted with our stay and would recommend it to other families (we were lucky enough to have a family room divided into two separate rooms, each with a sink and tea facilities). Since staff bring their dogs to work I would say that you need to like dogs and not be allergic, though!

    Very pleasant stay earlier this month. Friendly and cheerful reception staff and very attentive service for breakfast. Our room at the rear of the hotel was blissfully quiet and the beds were very comfortable. And how lovely to find really good quality, pristine cotton bedlinen, much finer and nicer than usual hotel quality. And although we didn't use it on this occasion, a decent (and free!) car park is very useful in York.

    We had a 4 person room in the attic. good beds, comfortable room, good shower. A bit more space to hang our towels and a little shelf over the bassin would have come in handy, but those are minor details. The walk along the river towards the town centre is far nicer than along the road, since it is a busy street. The traffic noise it the biggest disadvantage of this room, but it did not keep us awake. The staff was very friendly, we felt at home in the Priory (also because of the seats in the garden) and recommend it for a stay in York.
