Good value, reliable
This is a pretty good value hotel. I booked via Octopus and paid £60 per night including breakfast, over a weekend. The location marginally away from the tourist epicentre is fine (although York is sufficiently small for everywhere to be readily reachable on foot). The noise from the nearby pub is clearly something about which hotel staff are aware to the point of potential litigation. I was forewarned, without any prompting, that it could be a problem, but in the event I encountered no noise whatsoever. I can't imagine it being anything other than a minor irritant that could apply only to the few rooms located immediately opposite the pub in question. That apart, the hotel is an interesting attempt to develop a mid-budget offering that's better than Ibis, Travelodge etc. The design, unusually for a British hotel, eschews patterned carpets and beige surrounds in favour of Ikea-style fake pine floors and elegantly minimalist furnishing. All of that is fine and commendable at the moment, but I did get the impression that it might looks a bit frayed in a year's time. Breakfast is limited to an uninspiring UK-style rendering of 'continental'. All in all, though, a decent hotel at a good price, to which I'd have no hesitation about returning.
Great budget hotel in York
We stayed for three nights at the Ramada Encore, and were really impressed with the hotel, particularly given the low rate per night.
First impressions are that the room has entirely been furnished by Ikea - all very clean cut beech etc. Slight downside is the lack of drawers to stow anything - and there is no wardrobe, just a couple of rails with wooden hangers (very Ikea-esque).
The rooms are a good size; and the bathroom is great - fantastic shower, and a funky glass bathroom - one comment would be that a shower curtain would help avoid flooding the bathroom floor (the shower is partioned from the washbasin/WC by a glass screen, but this doesn't completely block off the spray).
Breakfast was good - a buffet style continental, with pastries; croissants; toast; cereal; fruit; tea; coffee.
Previous reviews have commented on the noise at this hotel - we got a room at the back of the building, and didn't notice any noise at all.
All in all, a good hotel at great value for money.
Night out right on your doorstep!
absolutely fantastic! very modern and very comfortable! although it is situated on a busy and quite noisey street its a lovely place to stay the nisest hotel i've been to so far in york! if your after a night out is in aperfect location!
Nice but Noisy Hotel
This is a fairly new hotel located in the city centre of the historic York. I will rate this hotel (from 1 to 5, with 5 being the best) on a few of my own criteria based on my 3-night stay at this hotel a week ago. 1. Interior design/layout: (5/5) A very new and modern design.
Laminated wood floor! 2. Quietness: (0/5) This has got to be the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed in. There were people partying in the next rooms late at night! Also, I was assigned to a room right by the door that divides the hallway, and everytime someone passes through the door, the door slams with a loud banging noise and the wall in my room vibrates. 3. Tidiness/sanitation: (2/5) It gets points for having a laminated floor which is very clean, but loses points for having stained and dirty towels (I found 3!) in the bathroom! The bed sheets had a few spots on them as well. 4. Service/friendliness of staff: (2/5) The staff didnt give me the impression of being very friendly or helpful. When I mentioned the noises during check-out, the person I talked to made me feel like it was my fault that I had to endure the noises because I didnt notify them when I heard the noises. 5.
Location: (5/5) This hotel is located within minutes walk to all the attractions in town and there are major bus stops right by the hotel.
Walking to the train station is less than 10 minutes. Value: (4/5) It's one of the best value out there I think, if you dont mind the noise.
Breakfast was included in the room rate, which was another bonus for the budget/business traveller!
Late evening noise from nearby club spoiled the stay
The room had not been cleaned or serviced prior to arrival.Bits of paper on the floor.Still there after a 3 night stay.Had to ask for towels.cups,ashtray and milk.The tea/coffee facilities allow only two drinks per 24 hours.The worst part however is the noise and disgusting language from a club only a matter of a few doors away.Noise/shouting/swearing etc was relentless until after 1am each night-incl.Sunday.If the windows are closed to try to dampen the noise/swearing etc,the room got very hot - no air-conditioning.Would not recommend -especially for those with children.Staff courteous but not a "friendly" hotel.T.V. reception was poor.Desk light not working.Breakfast good&plenty of choice.Close to city centre/attractions.Generally clean however-the room may have been a "0ne off".Because of the noise however-it cannot sadly be recommended for a good night's sleep.
Loved the hotel, hated the noise.
Absolutely loved the hotel, modern and clean, good staff and food,Hated the noise. the weekend I stayed at the Ramada Encore I was kept awake all night by the thudding music fron the local night club and the rowdy club goers passing by the hotel.I am sorry to say I will not be returning.
The hotel is centrally located within easy and quick access to the local bars and shops. Fantasic hotel, contemporary, modern and trendy young decoration. The room featured oak flooring, oak bed and recessed lighting. The bed linen was cotton and white, very very comfortable bed. The en-suite bathroom was out of this world, all glass panelled and mirrored with a "wet-room" shower which had the most amazing massage jet, could have stayed in it all weekend. The breakfast choice was the best I have ever seen. A throughly enjoyable stay and is highly recommended. Really pleased. They are also very competitive for the location and style!
Modern, & good value
We stayed here for a weekend break. It is very centrally located. The room was clean, decorated to a high modern standard, we loved the walk in shower in the bathroom and the glass sink! The continental breakfast was self service but there was an extensive range to choose from. Would be glad to stay here again.
The Ramada Encore York--A great place tostay!
What a pleasant surprise when I entered my room at theRamada Encore York. Very modern accommodations using blond woods whichgives it a bright, airy feeling. The bathroom uses a lot of glass, eventhe sink was totally made of glass! The breakfast room is also brightand cheery with the same blond woods and modern furniture. Thecontinental breakfast was excellent. You are greeted with the aroma offreshly baked rolls and breads which permeates the breakfast room eachmorning. The entire staff at the Encore are very congenial and helpful. Onestaffer was able to reserve a larger taxi for four of us and our largesuitcases when we couldn't reserve one on our own (York taxis aregenerally compact cars). The hotel is about a 5-minute taxi ride fromthe York Train Station. If you're taking day trips using the train, thedistance from the hotel to the train station is walkable. I woulddefinitely stay again at the Encore whenever my travel plans includeYork.

... the Shambles and behind the facades of the shops. Apart from the very strong wind it was worth the climb. We visited the Chapter House with its seven stained glass windows and beautiful flooring. I even managed to spot the one and only 'green man' as I was sitting underneath it. There is a new interactive attraction called the Undercroft, this follows the 2000 year journey of the Minster and is really quite moving especially the section on Resurrection, well ...

We have been so lucky with the weather on the different stretches of tidal rivers we have encountered so far on this trip. Sunny, light winds and no rain, it would be a whole different ball game in wet and windy conditions.

Very relaxing evening in the pub with John and Vanessa catching up on what we had both been doing for the last 10 days. They had a good trip down to Sheffield after we left them and then up to Leeds where John used to work before he retired!
Another sunny day for our 3 hour trip from Beale Lock up to Selby, via The River Aire, and The Selby Canal. We had heard ...

Another glorious day in the sunshine and a fairly short trip on The River Aire to our overnight stop at Beale Lock.
... the back seat. "Protego!" I'm excited to see York. I've read multiple historical novels based in and around York. We seem to have come to another city that only does reservations for dinner. Thankfully, I find a place near the river with a reservation: Italian. After dinner we stroll through the old section. It has just turned 8pm and we see lots of groups of people celebrating something or another, stag and hen parties (bachelor and bachelorette) and ...
