Great location for touring York! Literally take a left on Monkgate and walk 0.25 miles. Both evening and morning reception desk attendants were over-the-top kind. Took us on late reservation. Served us beer at 11p.m. with a smile and a nice talk about our trip and her sons. We were able to keep our luggage there, next day, while we toured York. Breakfast was phenomenal (even making veggie sausages and ensuring that we didn't get the fried eggs which were made in lard). Breakfast service was great.
Room faced alley and was very musty/damp. Windows had locks on them, presumably for security reasons, but we had to sleep with window open due to smell.
In essence, great staff, poor room upkeep - previous reviews address this as well.

... I spent some time thinking about salads. We stopped at one of the motorway service areas, thinking there was a full service restaurant there. The only place serving food was a McDonalds. Now, I'm not a food snob by any means, and i've eaten at McDonalds in many countries, in fact when Annette was little we used to make a point of trying McD's in every country we visited. But Barbara is not a McDonalds kind of gal. I told ...
... for the big Manor House which stands there. Once housing the Lord of the Manor who would have been a Sir or Earl or something and owned most of the land around here. Barbara's father was a chauffer employed at the Manor for years starting probably in the early 1900s. I am going to try to do some research to see who was in residence at that time and see if I can find a list of staff.

... how/when it was built. Joe and I even climbed all the twisty steps to the dome for a bird's eye view of the city. We've thus far been blessed with excellent weather - blue skies, sunny - some clouds and warm. After visiting St. Paul's and even staying for Evensong, we headed across the Millennium Bridge and walked the South Bank to the London Eye... Which only the guys were brave enough to ...
After an English Breakfast (pretty close to the Scottish one), we left our home on the farm and drove to Fountains Abbey. Founded in 1132, the abbey operated for over 400 years, until 1539, when Henry VIII ordered the Dissolution of the Monasteries. King Henry sacked the monks/churches wealth and demolished hundreds of abbeys. Fountains Abbey is the best preserved. Just seeing what's left gives you a hint of what it must have been like fully built. We stopped in Ripon for ...
