York Place was teeming with construction that appeared to have been going on for quite some time. The hotel had plenty of opportunity to inform guests, but I was certainly not informed. It was very noisy during the day and difficult to get in and around the hotel.
Staff was courteous, but there was a restaurant menu in my room and when I called for a sandwich, they seemed confused as to whether they could actually get me one. Turned out, the restaurant was closed (seemingly for some time) and the place where the could get a take away order would not do just one sandwich.
The Wifi connection was terrible! The shower in the shared shower room fell apart on my head!
I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone.

budget, let me tell you!
We ended up eating a place called Just Burgers
and Beers. I had (you guessed it) a burger and a beer.
We checked out a few pubs after dinner. We
visited the Royal Mile Tavern, the Mitre, and Jinglin' Geordies. We met a few
very kind gents, avoided a bar brawl, and saw a girl fall off a bar stool. All
in all, a great evening!
Hey fans..from Janice... pics are limited from the Open although Randy and Sue were brave and managed to sneak a few shots which they hope to share. No photography allowed! although many people were taking pictures... but it was ME who got the talking to from one of the rangers when I snapped a picture of the course... not even of Tiger Woods or Phil... I mean really?
It is hard to put into words just how it ...
