      Historical Traveler Reviews Hedley House Hotel York

      Average Overpriced Hotel

      from

      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 !

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      from

      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!

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      HADRIAN'S WALL

      A travel blog entry by piperwg on Nov 10, 2014

      Driving to York today with Ruth and Charlie we stopped to view Hadrian's Wall at two locations. Maps 1-2. An 83 year old woman riding nearby said that on a clear day you can see it to the horizon. Running virtually from coast to coast we realise the Romans were making a serious effort to keep the Scots out of their domain. Not a lot has changed in 2000 years has it. We are still building walls either virtually or in other ways to keep others out. Thanks to Charlie for the long ...

      ... built around the few remains ruins of York Castle it's actually a very interesting and well laid out museum (which is good as I've seen a few recently). Sections on life in the olden days, children's toys and pastimes up until now, a great exhibition on The First World War and another on the 60s. You also went through a section of the old prison that was built in the area too. Very worthwhile (and I got to dry out a bit). It was this stage where I was so wet ...

Such a lovely warm meal on a very cold day. After lunch we went for a bit more of a walk, before the weather changed to rain. We have spent the evening doing all our washing in preparation for our tour to ...

(The Abbey of St. Mary's was destroyed and the ruins are on the Minster property) The facade of this Cathedral is made up of many spires and Gothic statues and huge windows. This is one of those buildings that you can't get into on picture. The archways and carvings are intricate and still remain ...
