York, of course has it's charm - the old wall, Minstry and its situation on the river - so there was plenty for us to do in the short time we were there. The Ministry (the largest Gothic cathedral in Europe was beautiful but we didn't venture inside given the exhorbitant price (around NZ$30 per person!!) instead choosing to walk about parts …
Day 8. We made quite a late start leaving the hotel at 10.30 am. We walked from the Hotel which was located next to the race course back into the old city centre about 25 minutes away by foot. We entered the city at the "Micklegate" from where we walked up onto the city wall. York is an historic walled city. The wall surrounds much of the old city which can be entered by the various gates. During the day we managed to walk most of the entire length of the ...
... 4! The guys there were very good and we were soon on our way. Driving up the A1 the heavens opened and it bucketed down, that slowed us down even more. We finally got to our Hotel in the middle of York to hear that we did not have a booking (we did really). We then found that we had been bumped to another hotel because of over booking. Then he changed his mind and said the room that was flooded out this morning has ...
... the shambles, the cafés, pubs, restaurants and lots of shopping. Lunch was at The House of Trembling Madness, an old English pub that was voted the best pub of the year. It has been around basically since drinking began...lol there is so much stuff to look at....all sorts of animals are hung on the walls....it is after all a medieval city that survived through the gory Tudors. There was shopping a plenty. ...
... gardens and take a walk down the river. We sat by some ruins and ate fresh strawberries in the sun. Next we walked along the top of the old city wall, enjoying the views and learning about the history of the city. At one of the old towers there was a small museum that we entered and learnt all about King Richard II and the war of roses (the York family vs the Lancasters) and the brutal ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBest Western Kilima Hotel York
This hotel, while being within an easy walk of the town centre, was extremely hot and noisy and the rooms are very small. It's overpriced - unless you plan on using the gym etc - which we didn't given we stayed one night only.
The staff were helpful and the breakfast was better than average. Another plus was the blackout lining on the curtains which made it much easier to sleep.
We spent 1 month travelling around the UK and this was the most overpriced accommodation we experienced in all that time.
I wouldn't stay here again.
