    Historical Traveler Reviews Hedley House Hotel York

    Average Overpriced Hotel


    Stayed in the Hedley House Hotel for one night in July 2006. Rooms were clean and were of average size. Charged 100 for one night for twin on a Sat night which seemed excessive when we saw the facilities. Cooked breakfast disappointing. Sausages and bacon very cheap quality and not a lot of it. Owner was very rude waking us up at 8:00 accusing us of stealing a box of cereal.

    Seemed to be a place for Hen nights to stay, shoes left on landing when going down to breakfast.

    Wouldn't stay again

    Lovely little hotel !


    We travelled with our three small children. Your Tourist Information helped us to find this place, as we had difficulty finding a family room for two adults and three children (most are two adults and two children). My husband and I were pleased with the hotel. It was friendly comfortable and clean, everything you need. Our family room was right at the top in this converted town house, which was a great adventure for the kids, but tricky if you have mobility problems. It had lovely views of the minster, especially at night. Good, varied breakfast. Short walk from the city walls, not to far for little legs !!!

    Clean basic good location,overpriced for small family room


    Stayed in the Hedley House Hotel for one night in Feb 2006. Room very clean and new bathroom. Furnishings in room clean but very dated (brown and swirly patterned bedspreads), although carpets new. Charged 120 for one night for small family room for 4 on a Sat night right at the top of the building which seemed excessive when we saw the facilities. Lovely view from top. Very well positioned for City Walls. Cooked breakfast served quickly but disappointing. Sausages and bacon very cheap quality. Plenty of cereals and juice, tea and coffee. Staff helpful but miseladingly told us it was 5 mins walk to railway station which was completely untrue. It was about 15-20mins walk at steady pace. Could maybe have cycled it in 5 mins! Main pluses were cleanliness and location.

    Shoppers delight


    My two friends and I have made numerous shopping trips to York but decided to treat ourselves to an overnight stay.

    After seeing good reviews on this website I decided to book a twin and a single room at very reasonable prices.

    On the telephone and throughout our short stay the owners and staff were extremely friendly, polite and helpful - from offering us a map of the centre on arrival to ordering a taxi for our short return journey to the station (too many bags to carry!)

    The rooms were clean and spacious and the breakfast was just to die for...not an ounce of grease in sight on the superbly cooked full English, ample toast and fresh tea and no request too much trouble.

    We will definitely be visiting this hotel on our next overnight trip to York.

    Highly recommended for a 2 star hotel

    Signed - three happy shoppers (and diners)

    Amazing Hotel!


    We were offered this hotel through the York Tourism Board on a special 3 night winter break.

    Our room was large, spacious, warm, tastefully decorated, with oodles of storage and a very comfy bed. The bathroom was the biggest I've ever seen in a hotel. They had all the toiletries you needed too, no need to traipse shampoo and shower gel along!

    Breakfast is fit for a king! Loads to choose from and served by very friendly and chatty staff. The hotel was very busy but they made time for everyone.

    Location is ideal - you can park the car in their own private parking area (very safe and secure) and the walk into the centre of York is only 5 to 8 minutes.

    Before we left we asked about the apartments they also have next door and we were shown around a couple of them. They are of the same high standard as the hotel and the prices are very reasonable too.

    This is definitely a hotel I would recommend (in fact I came home with a few of their brochures to hand out to friends!) and will certainly stay there again on our next trip to York.

    Great Hotel, Great Price!


    This two star hotel in York, just outside the walls, it was a great find. It could easily qualify for 3 star rating but prefers to be an outstanding 2 star. The rooms and lobby were newly decorated, clean and very comfortable. There was a hot tub in the garden, that's right, never would I have thought I would be in the UK in a hot tub. There is internet service available, dinning room and garden. The owners were friendly and helpful. It was an all around jem.

    Great little hotel!


    We have just returned from an overnight stay at Hedley House and have come back with every intention of returning. Our room was spacious (especially the bathroom) and really clean with plenty of clothing space etc.

    The staff were really polite and the breakfast on the Sunday morning was delicious! The hotel has a lovely decking area and jacuzzi/spa which just finish the property off a treat, i wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone.

    Nice stay at Hedley House


    The Hedley house is on a quiet side street opposite a railway track. We have a room facing the track. At first I had some concern about noise with windows open, but it proves to be ok. If you are sensitive to noise, you may want to ask for a room at the back.

    Our room is of average size. The bathroom is huge though. There is a private parking lot at the back of the house, so parking is no problem. Everything is clean and functional. The English breakfast is good, haven't tried the other options.

    It's about 5-10 minutes walk to the Minster. There aren't that many restaurant in the immediate vicinity, but walking back into the wall city is easy enough. Service at the hotel has been good. All in all a pretty nice stay.

    Cannot say enough Great things about this B&B


    On our trip to York we chose to stay at Hedley House for 2 nights on a side-trip from London. We couldn't have been happier. We went in early May and the prices were great. Rooms were spacious (yes, you read that correctly) and breakfasts were amazing. Our bathroom was spotless with great water-pressure (very tough to find in Europe). This B&B is actually old converted town houses so there's a lot of charm. This is a very expensive town so staying right by the Minster or station is really expensive. Hedley House is a little off the beaten path, but the walk is very pleasant and easy to navigate. You walk pass the ancient walls, museum, gardens, and shops to get to it. The street the B&B's on is absolutely charming. After our stay, the hotel owner's son insisted on driving us to the station (we were loaded with bags and walking wasn't an option) for free in their Mercedes van! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel! If we return to England we will definitely stay here again!

    V friendly


    Very friendly staff and a lovely lounge. Breakfast was very tasty.

    Our room was large and very stylish, modern and clean despite the obvious age of the building. Our families rooms were smaller but very competative for the price and location. Nice en suite.

    Handy parking and v close to the centre of York

    Would recommend it unless you have mobility problems with stairs.

    My first time at Kings Cross Station was a treat - there's a Real Food Market on Friday nights and, although I was very tired, I did a circuit of it and bought a piece of shortbread for the trip home (it was soggy, having sat out in the air all afternoon - ah well!).

    ... from one level to another. Normally there would be probably 10-15 locks that would be required to drop to the river height but this wheel does it in one action. It has 2 buckets one at the top water height and one at the bottom these buckets are big enough to put several small boats in or just one big one. A boat travels along a raised canal at the top and enters the bucket and then behind it a wall closes so that water will not come out. ...
