              The hotel was within walking distance of the city (10 mins steady walk). The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, I would definitely recomend this hotel to friends and family, anyone reading this review and heading for York you won't regret staying at The Saxon House.

              Cannot think of a single thing to dislike.

              It is a family business and all the staff is very kind and helpful. The position of the hotel was perfect - easy access to the city and very easy to find even without the GPS!!. Our room was pretty small but quite comfortable. I will definitely stay there again.

              It was very freindly,the location was very good as it is only a 5min walk to the city centre.Saxon House is very easy going staff are very freindly and helpful,very clean.

              Good location, outside the city centre, but close enough for a gentle stroll. Staff were helpful. Breakfast was really, really good with plenty of variety. Our room was booked as a small double and it was small, but, was exactly what we had booked and as we didn't spend a lot of time there it was fine.

            • Couple
              5.8

              Good location

              Rooms on the website looked far nicer than the room we had on arrival. Web pictures looked modern and spacious, room we had was unfortunatley not what we were expecting. Breakfast was cold on both mornings even though we were down for 8.30 at begining of service.

            • Couple
              7.4

              Hotel lwas clean and well decorated throughout, breakfast was good.

              Hotel was hard to find at night, however we found it after passing it twice. I travelled for business and the checkin times are not great, you have to be there by 10pm. However the owner stayed up for me and served me the speediest breakfast ever the next morning so that I could get to me meeting on time!

            • Couple
              6.2

              The staff on arrival were very welcoming. Gave us lots of advice of where places were and that was a huge help. The shower was amazing!!!!

              I was really excited about the room when I booked it. Unfortunately I was very dissapointed. It was really dark and dingy. The cupboard would not shut properly and we had to slam our door behind us to close it which would have been really noisy for the people in the other rooms. The breakfast wasn't great. The sausage was really hard as if it had already been cooked and just thrown back in to the pan to warm up. The mushrooms were not cooked properly and there were no baked beans which is essential to our full english at home. Beacuse the staff were that great it would have been a better experiance if these things were improved.

            • Older travelers
              4.6

              Staff were indifferent, to a point friendly but not very informative about entertainment in the city.

              Location was good a short walk to city centre,staff were friendly and good parking.

              The room we got was cramped,we booked a four poster room and the bed was poor quality,the shower room was tiny and cramped,the door wouldn't open fully as it hit the toilet and was a squeeze to get washed or a shower. The television was very small,we thought it was overpriced for what we got. Breakfast was ok.
